The Eden Project
By DP Fitzsimmons
There are seven doctors and engineers left to tend and teach the one hundred and seventeen laboratory created human children of the Eden project. The C-1 virus has decimated planet Earth’s human population turning all those infected into a cross between the creatures of I Am Legend and the reevers (cannibalistic zombies of the Firefly series). There are enclaves of survivors scattered and dwindling while these children grow into the task of manning generation colonization ships.
This is a well conceived and written work. The children viewpoint in the story takes you into the emotions of teens that have been told from the longest they can remember who they were intended to mate with when the time came. The doctors and engineer struggle with the concept that they have already sacrificed themselves trying to keep the children and the project first. No more spoilers.
I enjoyed this story enough to get the sequel. Some editing fumbles and too much angst have forced me to grade it down a bit. Awarding four out of five units of book reading pleasure.
Breaking the Nexus (The Mythrian Realm Book 1)
By Lindsay Avalon
Sha Phoenix is a Sentinal in the Mythrian Realm, a realm cut off from Humans by a barrier called the Nexus. Sentinals patrol the Nexus looking for weak points and nefarious beings trying to break through the barrier. One such being has become very active on the human side causing Sha to be pulled through. Now she has dropped into the middle of a string of murders in the city of Denver, been apprehended as a person of interest in more ways than one by the dreamy detective Connor and been outed as a magical being.
The story line is very good and you will find yourself experiencing the balance between paranormal thriller and erotic suspense as you progress through the novel. The author also picked a good place to end the novel in preparation for the sequel. There are the usual little mess ups with misused words (write instead of right), some misspellings and grammar flubs but they did not overly detract from the story. Three out of five units of satisfaction of your choice are hereby awarded. Nice work.
The Honor of the Queen
by David Weber
I thoroughly enjoyed this work, the sequel to On Basilisk Station. Honor and a fleet with freighters are on a diplomatic mission to solidify ties with Yeltsin’s star. She represents Queen Elizabeth of Manticore to the leaders of a Patriarchal society stuck in sexist paradigms. Their zealot neighbors are frothing at the mouth using Havenite technology to help start a war and bring on the END DAYS. Excellently written with great character development all around. I give it five stars.
