So, this is barely a science fiction novel. This of it like a Ballardian novel set in a distant alternate reality but that discusses something inherent to ours: in this case, the opressor/opressed dynamic. If you know a thing or two about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, this novel echoes many o...

The Rebellion’s Last Traitor is Nik Korpon’s latest offering, coming off his contribution to the SOUL STANDARD (a 4-way author interconnecting novel-in-novellas, say that 5 times fast). It’s an interesting departure for Nik Korpon as he’s mainly known as a crime writer with noir leanings, but in...

This is a typical revenge tale comparable to that which is often found in video games but wrapped in a minority report/blade runner world. The writing isn't very good, ranging from mediocre and unimaginative to broken. The plot itself is decent, relying on a two-person story dynamic with interwea...

I saw Nik Korpon’s The Rebellion’s Last Traitor on Netgalley, and since I groove scifi, and Angry Robot in general, I decided to give it a whirl.
The Good: Intricate world building. The backstory of the word envisioned by the author displayed a lot of thought and a love of the fictional world crea...

My kind of sci-fi thriller. Come for the memory thieves, stay for the political intrigue.

LOVED this book. Korpon creates a bleak, dystopian, all-too-plausible near future world, where the ruling class keep everything for themselves (like meat, and clean water). The story is told through the point of views of two main characters, both of whom once led the rebellion against the current...

A well-crafted mix of noir and sci-fi, Korpon manages to create a fairly robust world while providing a pace that wasn't bogged down.
That said, some aspects of the plot and history of this world could have been further fleshed out but I it certainly doesn't detract from the experience. I had a gr...

Whenever I get the chance to read a post-apocalyptic Science Fiction novel, I am all in. Add in a gritty noir vibe reminiscent of a 1940's detective novel and there's absolutely no way I can say no.
We find ourselves in a future version of our world. I'm not sure where the exact setting is suppose...
