Cibola Burn by James S.A. Corey

Five star review for Cibola Burn by James S. A. Corey

James Holden is sent as a peacekeeper when squatters on one of the newly found worlds clash with a scientific group sent by a corporation. But defense mechanisms the earlier inhabitants of the world left behind have other plans. This was the best in the series so far. And I'm so glad the Expanse TV series found a home so this story can be told.

The Fated Sky (Transgressor Trilogy, #1)

Five star review for The Fated Sky by E. M. Swift-Hook

In the first installment of the Transgressor Trilogy, we’re introduced to several memorable characters: Avilon, called the Kashlihk, an off-worlder who is aboard a ship that crashes and is found by a caravan; Chola Durban, a kind of jokester and information distributor; and the Black Vavasor, whose name is really Jariq Zaringor. About halfway through this well-written book the three team up to get Avilon and Jariq away from a warlord who’s trying to gain rule of all of Temsevar. This world, on the periphery of the Coalition of worlds, is truly a backwater with little of the technology found elsewhere, creating a mix of fantasy and science fiction rarely found elsewhere. The adventures of Avilon and Jariq carry the rest of the book.


  1. Thank you for the recommended reads. I love the Expanse stories but haven't read Cibola Burn yet. I just picked up The Fated Sky but probably won't get to it for several months. (I don't know how you find the time to read so many books!)

  2. I have to do something when I take a break from writing and knitting. Also when we go anywhere and my husband is driving.
