Here’s the latest four star review:
Format: Kindle Edition
An unusual space opera about a mission to Mars where miners have gone missing. This is an erotic science fiction novella with great chemistry between the main characters. There are short interludes that shed more light on what is going on – the Guardian protects the planet. There’s a lot hapening as new technicians arrive to replace the missing ones. The ending is open, implying a series. I found a few minor formatting and editing errors but that aside the characters are interesting and the story ofers some surprises.<br />Overall a good read that will please fans of romance and science fiction alike.
Suffering from a touch of pot calling the kettle black syndrome Bookworm, judging by the errors in your review.
Why mention formatting and editing errors as if they are a phenomena only to be found in eBooks? They’re not. Take the hardback edition of Tolkien’s The Hobbit as a good example. Ever since it was first published in September 1937, various errors have been found and corrected. The last editing round was as late as 1995. So Bookworm, and others who just can’t stop themselves from taking a dig at anyone who publishes eBooks, think on.
By the way, thanks for the review…
Sooner or later it had to happen. Here is The Guardian’s first five star review.
on August 25, 2015
Science-fiction is a genre that I read very seldom. Too many “warps,” wormholes, and “blitzes” to my taste. But Jack Eason’s novella is a sturdy and reliable “nuts-and-bolts” tale, set on Mars, with just that indispensable touch of mystery, and a basic theme that is rooted deeply in human history. It’s also a clever story, slowly unraveling its surprises. I liked Eason’s laconic, humorous, and personal, way of telling his story. And it must be said: he can write some steamy scenes too. All together, a thoroughly enjoyable novella, told with great gusto.
Mark my words, that is how a review should always be written. No spoilers, nitpicking, whinging, condecension or pretentious acid tongued comments. Leave that kind of nonsense up to the bitter and twisted ingraits who hate anyone other than themselves, who specialise in biting critiques.
