Review: Zenith by Sasha Alsberg & Lindsay Cummings

4:13 PM

Zenith (The Androma Saga, #1) by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings | ★★★☆☆ (3.5)

As a note, an e-galley of this novel was sent to me via Edelweiss by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my opinions in any way.
The first thing you must know about Zenith is that it's fun. Pure, simple, fast paced fun--with fantastic characters and a whole lot of action. The second thing you must know, is a fact that lay in the blueprints of the beginnings of the series--Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings are a dynamic duo both on and off page.

Between the two, when story meets paper, Zenith is as unstoppable as any devoted reader could hope. It is every bits as spellbinding as any sci-fi enthusiast could hope. Both the authors and the characters found in the book command your attention instantly. In short, Zenith is the sort of novel that will keep readers on the edge of their seat in suspense and promise.

Readers who hope to find the perfect combination of angst, intrigue and an out-of-this-world cast of characters, will be satisfied with the roller coaster Zenith takes them on. In terms of science fiction, it is not easy to come by one that is wholly satisfying but Alsberg and Cummings take the genre and make something entirely their own. While there was the occasional miss and pages that felt to drag on, it was still a fun experience to flip through its pages and get lost in the spaces between.

Goodbye, 2017!: The Best Books of the Year

1:37 AM

Well, the end of the year is upon us. Already?! Goodbye, 2017! I'm unfortunately ringing in the new year just as I did last year--sick and at home. You can't have everything. And the good news is that I have a marathon of The X-Files planned and, of course, you guys!

In celebration of the upcoming new year (!!!!!!) and all the fantastic book releases we've been graced with for these twelve months, I'm gathering a list of my favourite books of this last year. Me? Avoiding finishing up my City of Bones celebration? What-ever-do-you-mean? Why, I never!

Picking just a few of my favourites that were published throughout the year would have been hellish, so there's no limit to this list. I'd call it an excessive list if I was being honest.

Which is why my introduction ends here and with a Happy New Year to all of you! Let's get started!
