‘All My Sunsets’ was a leisurely and enjoyable read. It discussed themes such as mortality, progress, and love in a way that had me thinking deeply. Recommended to lovers of science fiction stories that make you feel good about progress.

This lengthy novella is not a serious work and does not pretend to be, suitable for young readers interested in a grand adventure without being bothered about plotting inconsistencies or lack of characterization. Despite numerous story issues, ‘Parallel’ is an entertaining read.

What would you do if you knew you had only a few weeks to live? What would you do if you suddenly discovered that there is a reset button you can use to start afresh? The novel is cleverly plotted, beautifully written, and entertaining.

As with other Stephen Baxter’s books, World Engines starts off as a compelling story. However, Stephen Baxter rushes the ending, leaving the reader highly unsatisfied.
Guardians of Shadow is the last of the Shadow Gods Saga and I am sad to see the last of Terr, Teena and Dhar. Guardians of Shadow is a very intense and engrossing read with action from the first page to the last.
Through the Valley of Shadow is a fast paced read that will pull you in from the beginning and keep you on the edge of your seat as you fly through space from one planet to another trying to keep up with all the action and the twists throughout the story, rooting for Terr and Teena from beginning to end.
