Review: Arkwright by Allen Steele
4.5 Stars , Reviews / March 15, 2016

Rarely can a book captivate me so strongly so quickly, but Arkwright hooked me from the very first page. I literally could not put the book aside until I got through the first section. It is a story of vision, aspiration, determination, progress, changing the world and it’s expectations and it is also the story of family, friendships and loyalties. It is a story of genre and evolution that includes the loss of the previous masters of genre as time goes by as readers move on and start to neglect reading the household names of generations past.

Kate was not close to him, I’m not sure she new much about him beyond the fact that he was a very successful Science Fiction author whose series launched TV spinoffs, catapulting him to genre’s most recognized authors.

Stacking the Shelves – February 27, 2016
Stacking the Shelves / February 27, 2016

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature all about sharing your good luck in book acquisitions! So here’s what came my way since my last post! I’m not sure how I am supposed to “catch up” on books I have when I have a couple weeks like this! But, really excited about all of them! Received for Review                                       Arkwright by Allen Steele (finished hardcover) – This was an unexpected arrival from Tor. Honestly for some reason I don’t seem to pay as much attention to SF releases, but decided to read the first few pages to see what it was like since I had it in hand. And seriously, it has one of the most addictive openings ever. Many thanks to Tor for sending this my way!   The Lyre Thief by Jennifer Fallon (finished hardcover) – I featured this in a WoW post recently. It sounds like it has a great premise and potential for a really good female lead character. I’m really looking forward to delving into this one very, very soon! Again, thanks to Tor for the finished copy…
