Gamers should love the HALO book franchise, because it dives deep into the lore and the universe that is only lightly covered by the games. HALO: Renegades does this, while also delivering a compelling sci-fi story that stands on its own.
Wild is for sure an adult read, though the main plot involves a woman who can take the form of any animal at will. Once a month the full moon transforms her into a fierce wolf-like creature without a human conscience, which tends to make her relationships difficult.
Although a little cliched with a plot about a young teenager becoming a superhero in a time of crisis, Scales, Spirits of Chaos Book One is nonetheless a pretty good read for those who enjoy the superhero and young adult genres.
Outland, Quantum Earth Book One is a good end of the world type disaster tale that has some deep physics like experimental quantum uncertainty principals at it’s core. Basically, science nearly destroys the world, and these people try and survive it.
We have been following The Demon Accords book series for quite a while, and Demon Divine, number 14 in the series, is quite possibly the best tale yet from author John Conroe.
Peter Green just has his pajamas, a silk tie, and a one-way bus ticket to Mrs. Battisworth’s Academy for Unliving Boys and Girls, a strange and spooky school for dead orphans like himself. This book is like Harry Potter, but with dead kids.
A much darker sci-fi series than many readers are probably used to experiencing, War’s Reward is the sixth and final book in the Free Fleet tale. Although some of the series was borderline insufferable at times, the story wraps up nicely with all plotlines satisfactorily completed.
In the surprisingly not very radical Marx at the Arcade book, author Jamie Woodcock examines some bad practices in the videogame industry that exploits workers, and explores better ways of doing business that could also lead to better games.
For our review of the Free Fleet series of novels, we come to the penultimate entry. In From Furies Forged, we see the gloom and doom atmosphere reach a breaking point, but also an apex of action sliding into the finale. And we are pretty sure this one is going to end with a bang.
Depending on your point of view, the theory put forward by The Simulation Hypothesis that we are all part of a giant videogame might be deeply disturbing, or could explain quite a lot of things about our wacky world.
