Review: The Clockwork Dynasty

The Clockwork Dynasty The Clockwork Dynasty by Daniel H. Wilson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fascinating world-building.

I want to know more about the avtomats and their history - specifically, what their anima is and how it's made!

Another good book from Daniel H. Wilson!

I got an ARC of this book for review from NetGalley.

Aye, Robot - a review

Aye, Robot (A Rex Nihilo Adventure) (Starship Grifters Book 2)Aye, Robot (A Rex Nihilo Adventure) by Robert Kroese
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another fun Rex Nihilo book. Not as ...crazy as the first one, but still had some moments of "Did I really just read that? And why did I enjoy it so much?"

When I first found this book on Amazon, I tweeted this:

So yeah, I'll be looking out for more Rex Nihilo books.

Book Review: Ocean of Storms

Ocean of StormsOcean of Storms by Christopher Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Good book!

I liked the characters. I liked the mystery and discovery on the moon and elsewhere. I liked the conspiracy. I liked the little touch of the one character always going for a drink.

It was almost a 3rd of the way in before we even got the characters to the moon, but I guess considering what happened once they were in orbit and on the moon, it made sense.

I wasn't crazy about the earth-side political situation - would have liked more time on the moon and more time with the main characters.
