Persephone Station by Stina Leicht

Rating: 3 out of 5.

For me, this science fiction book is a miss. I just couldn’t get into it. It is well-written and packed with action, but it just didn’t interest me.

The Stormbringer (Stormbringer #1) by Isabel Cooper

Rating: 2 out of 5.

I couldn’t get into this fantasy/romance book. The story didn’t interest me. The book goes from one fight scene to another, with little story in between. The writing is clunky and stilted. There is probably an audience for this book, it just wasn’t for me.

Ashwater (Ashwater #1) by Melissa Koberlein

Rating: 3 out of 5.

3. 5 stars

This is a cute, light and fluffy first book in a new YA SciFi series.

He’s an android/human hybrid, with a computer processor for a brain, as well as a host of weaponry he can use to eliminate threats. But, he is also just an 18 year old boy that is hungry all the time, likes to play video games and dance, and just got a crush on a girl named Evie.

Infernal (The Chronicles of Stratus #1) by Mark De Jager

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I have mixed feelings about this book. At times I liked it, and at others I was annoyed at it. It’s a dark fantasy told in the first person about a man that wakes up with no memory and unable to move. From there, he takes us a on a violent road trip to an unknown destination to find answers to burning questions like, “what (not who) am I”, “why am I so angry” and “why do I have a thirst for revenge”?

This is a fantastic first book in an exciting YA Fantasy/SciFi series. There is a strong, flawed female lead, complicated relationships, creepy monsters and plenty of action. It’s a quick read and I couldn’t put it down.

I really enjoyed this first book in a new fantasy series. It’s a quick and easy read, and there is plenty of action, magic, fighting, fast ships and has just a hint of romance.

The Rage of Dragons (The Burning #1) by Evan Winter

Rating: 4 out of 5.

4.5 stars.

Wow. This is a fantastic first book in an exciting new African-inspired epic fantasy series. The book starts off slowly but quickly picks up steam and doesn’t let up. There is a good amount of worldbuilding and plenty of action. Add in good character development and complicated relationships, and you have a winner.
