3.5 Originally posted at Vampire Book Club No one really knows what precipitated The Event. Aliens? Trans-dimensional rift? All that is clear is one day The Event happened, and it opened up Rifts in various parts of the world. Anyone or anything unlucky enough to get caught in a Rift perished. Years...

“Cormorant Run is brilliant” is the headline. The attention to details makes this strange, melancholy tale shine. First, a recommendation for readers who don’t enjoy footnotes: Hang in there until around page 18, where the frequency and number of glossary words drop off significantly once the nar...

3.5 stars for what had better be the start of a new series from this author. Otherwise, this rates as 'thrown against the wall'. I have a up and down relationship with Ms Saintcrow's books. I made it halfway through her Dante Valentine series before I threw in the towel. I loved(!!!) the Jill Kism...

What initially presented as a very good and unique concept was in reality a great disappointment. Saintcrow has a different and somewhat gifted writing style - usually. Her Dante Valentine series was excellent and her Jill Kismet series was very good. She is a clever and often quirky writer with e...

Yes!!! A whole new world from this author and it is scary amazing! You'll find yourself falling in love with Svin - not because she's out of this world beautiful or because she has a great body or because of any other reason you might normally give. She just is who she is and that sucks you in. A...

An apocalyptic science fiction novel about trusting your instincts, the drive for knowledge, adapting to a world that is fluid and changeable, and obtaining what you desire. It’s a fantastic, slang-heavy, crude, “Monkey’s Paw” treasure hunt for advanced technology in a world in which areas called...

The world-building in this book is great, and the characters are fun (if somewhat one-dimensional). I just wish the plot and some of the characters' actions made more sense. I'm left with a lot of questions about why things played out the way they did, to the point where I wonder why I even cared...

Well, that happened I don't know what that was. Surrealist SF? Existentialist, maybe? This was a weird ride. Vicious and impersonal. I don't know how to match it up with anything else. If you are looking for predictable story, look elsewhere. If you like world building an amazing, horrifying, post-s...
