Black Swan Planet
Reviews , Science Fiction / December 14, 2017

BOOK DESCRIPTION Raka Varoule is a second-rate investigative reporter, traveling between the twenty-seven worlds of the Galactic Empire exposing minor scandals. His big break comes when he weasels his way onto the Emperor’s personal star-cruiser to report live, across the galaxy, how the Emperor is celebrating his birthday. When he exposes the biggest scandal in galactic history, he narrowly escapes with the help of a drug runner, a dominatrix, and a monkey wearing ass-less chaps. Together, they search for an escape from the Empire; a barbarian world outside Imperial control. Then things get weird. Black Swan Planet is a rare treat of a novel. A satirical science-fiction story told in a unique way, utilizing a variety of perspectives. This story will make you both laugh out loud and keep you guessing what will happen next. James Peters has woven a story you’ll never forget, even if you lack mnemonic implants or prescription vibrating undergarments. REVIEWS Comedy, Sci-fi, Monkeys. By Rachel K on October 31, 2017 (Amazon) This book is well outside of my usual genres. That being said, I really enjoyed the story. When I first started the book I was a little wary because the first scene, well, let’s…

The Amaranth Chronicles: Deviant Rising
Reviews , Science Fiction / December 5, 2017

  BOOK DESCRIPTION The Helix was created to revolutionize the way we communicate. But even the purest of intentions can spawn terrible evil. This wasn’t what Lithia had in mind when she decided to run away from home. Her ship was not meant to carry a fugitive wanted in two galaxies, or the stowaways running from a war that wasn’t hers. She just wanted to live a quiet, peaceful life alongside her brother. But now she knows too much about The Helix, the secret hidden deep within it, and what it would mean for all humankind if she walked away.   REVIEW A spectacular flight of the imagination! By Piaras for Emerald Book Reviews on 5th December 2017 Whatever flaws we might identify or frustrations we might feel are trivial in comparison to a reader’s pure joy in losing himself/herself in a narrative. When all the elements come together: an intriguing plot, thoughtful, profound themes, complex, troubling, characters, and language that will amaze for its clarity, directness and confidence; we gratefully set all analysis aside and give ourselves up to the sheer magic of a great book. And for me, The Amaranth Chronicles: Deviant Rising, is such a book. Authors…

Reviewed by Anna Morganon March 21, 2017 (Amazon) What a delightful story! Once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down. It’s light, well-written, and a real page-turner, so prepare some tea and snacks because you won’t be able to put it down for more than a few hours. I’ve read my fair share of fantasy novels and I know how hard it is to come up with a world of your own inhabited with believable creatures acting out a plot that doesn’t resemble a bizarre fairy tale. Constanza Mayer created an elegant storyline that nods to the…

Ines’ Words
Science Fiction / June 14, 2017

BOOK DESCRIPTION The love story between Ines de Castro and King D Pedro I is one of the most tragic, intense and powerful in European history. Their story has become a legend and it is difficult to separate fact from fiction, where the only certainty that remains is the element of forbidden, but everlasting, love. With her latest work, Ines’ Words, Haidji brings her unique and magical style to this subject and shows not only the enduring power of the legend, but of love itself. BOOK REVIEW Powerful, poetic and beautifully written, 14 Jun. 2017 Royalty doesn’t get you everything it seems. It’s a well known fact, that when it comes to royalty or aristocracy, you rarely marry for love. More often than not they are usually arranged by the respective families, having their authority, affluence and general interests in mind, with the bride and groom having little or no say in the matter. Since these political arrangements were essential in the power plays (both past and present), there is no room for love. In the case of Prince Pedro of Portugal and Lady Inês de Castro, they were willing to defy these notions. However, not even a King’s forbidden…
