    Battle Cruiser – B. V. Larson

    I recognized the name B.V.Larson first as one that I’d read before but I couldn’t figure out or exactly remember where I’d heard of him, but as this was another find on Kindle Unlimited, I thought it was definitely worth pursuing and I’m actually really glad I did. His previous books – one of which I’ve […]

    Star Trek Enterprise – Kobayashi Maru

    As someone who enjoyed the Enterprise series, this novel served nicely to bridge the story onward from when it was taken off TV, although there are a few other novels preceeding this one.

    Veil of Shadows – Terry Mixon (Empire of Bones II)

    Continuing on from the excellent Empire of Bones (reviewed here) Veil of Shadows doesn’t let up any on the action and gets you straight back into the intrigue and goings on in the Kingdom.  While our lost bunch is no closer to finding a way home, they’ve managed to rescue Princess Kelsey at the end […]

      I mentioned in a previous post the Honor Harrington series of books by David Weber, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually spoken about them in any depth, so I thought I’d do so now. The first book in the Honorverse is called On Basilisk Station and it is available for free from the […]
