This is one of those stories that afterwards lingers and makes you rethink how you see the world. It took me a while to get into the story but then it flew. Captain Kel Cheris is disgraced by unconventional tactics; her chance to redeem herself is to host the mind of long-dead tactician Shuos Jedao ...

Can I give this all the stars? No, only five? Okay, then. So I think that the lazy/sloppy world building reviews kept me from finishing this. I thought they were rational and well thought out arguments, and they make me think about how I approach and read books. And how others will appro...

I know I said I had hangups about one of the setups near the start of the book and it still seems odd to me, but overall this book is really good. Once I was past those first few chapters, I was pretty much glued to the book. Cheris is a fairly low-ranking infantry officer in the Hexarchy who is u...

Superb, high intensity plot with wildly interesting world building and compelling characters. This audiobook is great. I bought the sequel as soon as I finished it. Based on reviews I had read, I expected to be lost for a few chapters, but this was not the case. I was hooked from page one. Maybe ...

I genuinely hated this book when I started it. It drops you in the middle of some pretty intricate and confusing world-building, bombards you with jargon, and the rules of our reality just don't seem to apply despite the fact all the characters talk about math constantly. I would read two or three p...

Ninefox Gambit was one of those books for which I'd been waiting with anticipation for what seemed like an age - I'd previously loved short fiction by this author so was eager to see what they could do with the longer form, and the more I heard about it, the more I wanted to get my hands on a copy! ...

“If the Fortress of Scattered Needles had fallen, she would need a way to crack its legendary defences, its shields of invariant ice.” Bang up to date with the 2016 debut SF novel from short story writer Yoon Ha Lee and.... it's a great piece of world-building but a bit of a slog. Lee gives a bravur...
