Audiobook Review: Vicious by V. E. Schwab

Vicious is an intriguing and dark super hero/villain story. Eli and Victor are college roommates, friends, and research partners. Their studies into what makes EOs (“extra-oridnarys” – people with supernatural powers) have come to an exciting juncture. A hypothesis so strong that they go to the extreme, turning mere observation, into experimentation. Ah yes! The joys of being young and so full of...

Audiobook Review: Time Salvager by Wesley Chu

Time Salvager has all the strengths of the Tao series (action, humor, etc. etc.), but with a completely fresh world and setting. I found the entire world and plot to be very original and captivating. In a future (and not so accommodating) earth, not only have humans mastered the art and science of time travel, but they are also running...

Audiobook Review: Lock In by John Scalzi

Lock In is a fast, fun thriller type of read. In the not so distant future, the world is plagued with a new virus, named Haden’s Syndrome (after the president whose wife and daughter were afflicted). 95% of people who get it fully recover, 4% suffer from meningitis, and then the final 1% experience something we have not had to deal...

Audiobook Review: Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

Firefight is a good follow up to Steelheart and I think has a great set up for the next book. There’s more great action that gives you that Hollywood blockbuster movie type of feel. But I have to be honest, I just didn’t enjoy it as much as Steelheart. One of the largest problems was that it just took me a...

Audiobook Review: The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi

The Water Knife is set in a harsh dystopian world that is just as violent, gritty and grim as any grimdark fantasy I have read. It’s a near future where water has become scarce and is now the ultimate commodity. Towns have been shut down and cleared out. There is a dark underworld with a gang or mafia type of style to it. The way water...

Audiobook Review: Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen

In Stolen Songbird, there is a race of individuals, trolls, that have been cursed to remain confined to their city, Trollus, below the Forsaken Mounts. A witch cast this curse 5 centuries ago, so the humans above rely on rumors and folklore for knowledge of trolls. And lets just say, there is nothing very favorable known or mentioned about either trolls or...

Audiobook Review: Corsair by James Cambias

Corsair is a thrilling and fun adventure full of space pirates and hackers, the kind of book that grabs you and holds you down (willingly) until it is all told. This book is pretty short, but it’s an addictive “page turner” that finished before I knew it. I say “page turner” in quotes because in actuality, I listened to this...
