War Girls by Tochi Onyebuchi

War Girls by Tochi Onyebuchi

At the beginning, I was absolutely enthralled with War Girls.  The first hundred pages hooked me.  The characters were interesting and the world building was fascinating.  A lot of science fiction coming out these days feels copy/pasted.  The language and setting feel the same – that’s not the case with War Girls. The science fiction in this book was so refreshing.  It was sharp and technical enough that it felt modern and real… even though it’s set a century in the future.  A lot of sci-fi I’ve read in the last couple years is very comfortable talking about space, but that’s the […]

Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh

Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh

This book was an absolute delight. For those who haven’t heard me squeeing and squirming about it for the last 6-8 months, Reign of the Fallen was one of my most anticipated reads of 2018.  I’m a sucker for a good necromancer story, and there just aren’t many of them.  Reign of the Fallen gave me everything I want in a fantasy world: hierarchies, necromancers, mages, pirates, non-traditional princesses… be still my beating heart, this book was friggin’ magnificent. Odessa is a Master Necromancer.  She’s new to the trade, freshly graduated.  The story opens with the raising of their king.  See, […]
