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.
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.
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.
One of the best military fiction type space opera books our reviewer has ever had the pleasure of enjoying, Renegade by Joel Shepard focuses on the crewmembers doing the actual fighting in a massive war.
While The Five Trials might appeal to some readers, the gratuitous use of sexual assault and torture as plot devices will probably keep this one far away from most mainstream readers. It’s even harder to take as an audiobook.
The plot of Skyward is intense, amazing and almost everything a Brandon Sanderson fan could want out of a book from him. In fact, though Skyward is a standalone tale, it would be a great candidate for a sequel or series.
Following up on our review of Volume One, The Demon Accords Compendium, Volume 2 offers a few more short stories from author John Conroe. While amusing, this book is pretty tiny, and what fans really want is a new, full novel in the Demon Accords series.
It’s all the rage now to take classic literature and twist it somehow by adding undead or other monsters. The Eerie Adventures of the Lycanthrope Robinson Crusoe by Peter Clines, H.P. Lovecraft, and Daniel Defoe does that, and does it well.
Fresh from the Bobiverse book series, author Dennis E. Taylor takes on more sci-fi with the audio book The Singularity Trap. Blessed with excellent narration, this is one trap that you may want to fall into.
Following on the heels of The Battle Begins, we find our hero, sick in real life but a master in the Bushido Online game, leveled up and fighting as only a samurai Ronin can. For anyone who ever wanted to get lost in a game, this tale will tantalize.
