A narrative that delivers so hard its “just what the fuck happened here?” hook.
It’s a sit down and savor sci-fi that reads like one of the Star Trek episodes where they get stuck in some temporal anomaly and spend the entire time doing sciencey stuffs until they get free at the last minute.

Reflecting on my favorite books of the year is one of my favorite December activities. Here are my top 10 reads in 2021.
The Splinter King is the second book in Mike Brooks’ God-King Chronicles series, and the author really goes to great lengths to expand the world and the characters. While I did not think it quite lived up to the expectations set by the first book, I did still enjoy it.
The Black Coast is the first book in Mike Brooks’ epic fantasy series The God-King Chronicles. It is a great start in what appears to be a promising story.
An incredible omnibus of Chinese Science Fiction compiled and edited by self-confessed geek, translator and author of From Kuanyin to Chairman Mao, Xueting Ni.
While I have been eyeing the author’s book for a long time, this is my first Yoon Ha Lee read. I was drawn in by the cool dragon on the cover, and a synopsis that sounded unique and interesting. In my opinion Phoenix Extravagant lives up to that billing.
