Ruin’s Wake by Patrick Edwards
Synopsis via Goodreads:
A moving and powerful science fiction novel with themes of love, revenge, and identity. A story about humanity, and the universal search to find salvation in the face of insurmountable odds.
An old soldier in exile embarks on a desperate journey to find his dying son.
A young woman trapped in an abusive marriage with a government official finds hope in an illicit love.
A female scientist uncovers a mysterious technology that reveals that her world is more fragile than she believed.
Unification imagines a world ruled by a totalitarian government, where history has been erased and individual identity is replaced by the machinations of the state. As the characters try to save what they hold most dear – in one case a dying son, in the other secret love – their fates converge to a shared destiny.
Tune in tomorrow for our review!
Happy Friday, everyone! And Happy March 1st! Spring is almost here, although it is currently snowing. I just want warm weather to get here so the draft in my kitchen won’t kill my poor basil plant completely.
What a month. I didn’t get as much reading done as I’d hoped. But with an every growing TBR and dozens of absolutely amazing books being published every month I always feel like I’m not getting enough reading done. This month I got some absolutely wonderful books from publishers, friends, and purchases that I want to tell about.

(All reviews are our own, honest opinions.)
It has been quite a while since I’ve binged a series like I am with this one. Occultic;Nine, Vol. 2 by Chiyomaru Shikura is a truly great second volume in this series by the creator of Steins;Gate.

Chronin #1 Received From:
(All reviews are our own, honest opinions.)
It’s no secret I love manga, but what may be less known is
my propensity for the Meji Era. The crash of modernity and tradition provides a
fascinating backdrop to any story (and tends to speak to my history major
heart). Surprising no one, I immediately downloaded an e-arc of Chronin Volume 1: The Knife at Your Back
by Alison Wiglus as soon as I saw the cover art.

Anthologies can be tricky beasts. Even in themed
anthologies, authors and their stories can be very varied, sometimes wildly so.
The Future is Female! 25 Classic Science
Fiction Stories By Women, From Pulp Pioneers to Ursula K. Le Guin is an
anthology from editor Lisa Yaszek that defies all expectations. Each story is
better than the one preceding it. Each one is memorable, lingering in the back
of your mind long after moving on to the next tale. Each one is the sort of
story that could be pointed to and said, ‘This
is the heart of science fiction. This is our legacy. This is what we aspire
Blackfish City By:

April 17, 2018
Blackfish City is
a dystopian science fiction novel from Sam J. Miller whose novel The Art of Starving won the Andre Norton
Award. The story takes place on an earth drowned by the sea. Climate change has
shrunk livable land, countries have fallen, and refugees migrate to places like
Qaanaaq – a floating city near a geothermal vent close to Greenland. But as
much as Qaanaaq is a savior for the displaced, it has its own problems. Steeped
in corruption and with no housing or work for incoming refugees from “drowned
cities,” disease is rampant. A disease referred to as ‘the breaks’ spreads
among the people while outside the city a mysterious woman riding an orca and with
a polar bear companion can be seen, a woman steeped in mystery and rumor.

Maybe it’s because I tend to lean towards long-running shonen series, but it isn’t very often I come across a standalone volume of manga. Jaco the Galactic Patrolman by Akira Toriyama is exactly that.
Standard Hollywood Depravity By:
March 7, 2017
Ray Electromatic #1.5 Rating:
I can finally say I’ve finished the Ray Electromatic series. Standard Hollywood Depravity by Adam Christopher is a novella set between the first and second books in the series. It’s a short, fun mystery that can be easily read as a standalone story if you haven’t read the first novel in the series Made to Kill.
