Great review at Carrie’s YA Bookshelf

Wowsers. This is a great review from one of my favorite YA blogs. I wasn’t even sure I could get Carrie to read the book, with blockbusters like CATCHING FIRE and GIRL IN ARENA garnering so much attention. But, she read something that appeared to be outside her tastes, and loved every bite! That seems to be the consensus with this book. Non sci-fi readers love it. Women love it. Old and young alike love it. The key is getting people to read it, so they’ll realize they love it!…

Review of Molly Fyde on Luke Reviews

I promised myself I wouldn’t look. It’s like driving down the highway, in a major traffic-jam, and promising you won’t rubber-neck. I’ll have my wife read them first, inoculating me against the negative. I’ll wait to hear from someone else. Impossible. Even though I know it might be a grisly sight, I can’t turn away. This is my first review from a completely unbiased source, and from a pro that spends most of his time reviewing science fiction from the big boys. It’s a critic that I admire for slamming…

Amazon review of the week

This week’s review is a 4-star one from Mark, who is a voracious and discerning reader. I’ve been eagerly anticipating his opinion of the book and was quite pleased to hear what he came up with. “Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue is the first book from author Hugh Howey and as far as first efforts go, this is good. Howey’s characters are well written and contain a depth that is rarely seen in popular fiction these days. His story is strong and moves along at a nice pace never…

Amazon review of the week

I’d love to have so many reviews come in that I can feature one each week. And I hope they’re all as glowing as this one from Wade: What Howey has done here is create a story so complex in nature, yet so well-contained that it is enjoyable on many levels. This feeling echoes throughout the characters, settings, and themes readers are presented with page after page, leaving you wanting to soak up everything this adventure has to offer. I occasionally found myself so exhausted upon finishing a chapter because…

Book Review: Daemon

Daniel Suarez’s Daemon is an amazing story. And I’m not talking about the actual plot; for that, the word “Amazing” would not suffice. No, I am referring to the incredible series of events which are leading up to its publication and release on January 8th. After writing Daemon back in 2004, Suarez faced the uphill battle common to many first-time authors. Unable to find a buyer, yet confident of the quality of his work, he decided to self-publish. Using print-on-demand, Suarez pumped out a few dozen copies a month, at…
