We continue our trend of reviewing full book series this week with the second entry in the Free Fleet tales, Coming Home. The action and adventure in Coming Home is palpable, and avoids some of the uncomfortable points of the first book.
Although The Recruitment Rise of the Fleet is clearly the freshmen effort by an author, it has some interesting concepts that make it worthy of a read. And it stars a gamer as the main hero, which is always a plus.
Mages of Mystralia is a cool Zelda-like game that puts a heavy emphasis on crafting your own unique arsenal of spells. It’s so powerful that you can even break the game a little bit, solving puzzles far before you should.
While Croma Venture might not be quite as explosive as the other four books in the Spiral Wars series, it still presents a great look at how military sci-fi can be done right. And hopefully, it sets up even more adventures.
Book four of the Spiral Wars series, by Joel Shepard, is another amazing entry for fans of either military thrillers or sci-fi, or just novels with really good, action-oriented plots. We’ve reviewed the complete series up to this point, and there is not a bad book in the bunch.
Michael’s back with a quick update on this 5th anniversary since his writing career started. It’s five years of blood, sweat and tears, and an update on his current hiatus and expected return to videogame blogging for GiN.
Sometimes, the second book of a trilogy can be a bit of a letdown, and The Phoenix Empress falls into that category given how amazing The Tigers Daughter turned out. Still, its filled with a memorable style that hopefully bodes well for book three.
Our reviewer fell in love with The Spiral Wars series with action packed military sci-fi books Renegade and Drysine Legacy by author Joel Shepard. But the third book, Kantovan Vault, blows those others out of the water.
Author Brandon Sanderson has become a fan favorite here at GiN. In Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds, he brings together all three of his Legion novellas in one place for the first time, making this collection an instant classic.
Somehow, Drysine Legacy ramps up the action from the sci-fi thriller Renegade, which we very positively reviewed the other week. Renegade’s tale was action packed, but Drysine Legacy is off the charts, and a perfect read for Sci-Fi or Military enthusiasts.
