Collision (The Prophecy Series, #3) by Lea Kirk – Review August 29, 2018

Review by K.J. Van Houten

Review of Collision

Collision is book three of Kirk’s Prophecy series. I definitely recommend reading books 1 and 2 first, to get a better sense of the ‘world’ of this series. Collision does not include a lot of detail about how the various species of Terrans, Matirians, and Anferthians have come together on the galactic stage. Unfortunately, there may be some spoilers for those books in this review.

Collision is the story of Flora Bock, whom we met in book 1 as a young child, orphaned in the invasion of Earth by the Anferthians. This book also starts out with Flora as a young child, but past the events of books 1 and 2, and she is now the adopted daughter of Alex and Gryf (whom we met in book 1), and there is peace after the war. But even a child continues to hold…

About Stars Uncharted

In this rip-roaring space opera, a ragtag band of explorers are out to make the biggest score in the galaxy.

On this space jump, no one is who they seem . . .

Captain Hammond Roystan is a simple cargo runner who has stumbled across the find of a lifetime: the Hassim, a disabled exploration ship–and its valuable record of unexplored worlds.

His junior engineer, Josune Arriola, said her last assignment was in the uncharted rim. But she is decked out in high-level bioware that belies her humble backstory.

A renowned body-modification artist, Nika Rik Terri has run afoul of clients who will not take no for an answer. She has to flee off-world, and she is dragging along a rookie modder, who seems all too experienced in weapons and war . . .

Together this mismatched crew will end up on one ship, hurtling through…

Whiskey With My Book

About Lost Valyr

She’s a scientist in the wrong galaxy. He’s an alien in the wrong century. Can their love reset a terrifying future?

Dr. Rachel Grant knows her way around the Garradian tech on the Kikk Outpost. But the technology she encounters in an alien medical lab stumps even her brilliant mind. With a little help from her scheming parrot sidekick, she manages to push the right buttons and transport them to an uncharted planet…where they find a recently defrosted alien, who heats up Rachel.

Valyr wasn’t going to warm up to the bright-eyed scientist anytime soon…not after she pried centuries of cryosleep from his cold fingers. But waking up in the wrong century is nothing compared to the robots targeting his still-frozen team. And their situation only gets worse when he discovers the spiderweb of destruction trailing in the robots’ wake. With their backs against the wall, Valyr…

About Breakaway

Sofie lives in the shadow of Felicitos–the tethered way station built to funnel Garmen’s mineral wealth up to the top of the atmosphere, where it’s loaded onto space ships. Because Garmen is a breakaway planet, not part of the Verdant String Coalition, the companies that control it are free to run things as they see fit, and Sofie is part of the resistance that wants to end their rule.

Her main goal, though, is to get away from Garmen altogether, and leave the drudgery and violence behind her. That goal is complicated by her involvement with Leo Gaudier, a shadowy crime lord whose ability to cheat the companies that own Garmen is something she admires. And when she stumbles on a terrible new direction the companies are taking, a secret alliance that will endanger everyone she cares about, she sees her chances of escape slipping away.

Leo is…

In the course of promoting my latest novel in my contemporary SFR series, Not Fade Away, Interstellar Rescue Series Book 4, I’ve talked a lot about how contemporary SFR turns a protagonist’s “cozy” world upside down. Or the difficulty of writing authentically about dementia or therapy dogs (both of which figure prominently in this story). But I haven’t yet addressed a key aspect of this story and one of its more intriguing characters: artificial intelligence and sentient machines.

BiN (a rubric for Binary Nanoplex) is part machine, part biological construct, a creation of the alien slave-trading Minertsans. It was created to serve the needs of the Empire, in particular those of the slave trade, now under threat from both outside the Empire (from abolitionist Rescue fighters) and inside (from those who would give up the old ways). The machine/creature was made to…

About Not Fade Away

Earth shielded his secrets–
Until her love unlocked his heart.

Rescue agent Rafe Gordon is human, though Earth has never been his home. But when his legendary father Del becomes the target of alien assassins, Rafe must hide the dementia-debilitated hero in the small mountain town where the old man was born—Masey, North Carolina, USA, Earth.

Home care nurse Charlie McIntyre and her therapy dog, Happy, have never had such challenging clients before. Del’s otherworldly “episodes” are not explained by his diagnosis, making Charlie question everything about her mysterious charge and his dangerously attractive son. Rafe has the answers she needs, but Charlie will have to break through his wall of secrets to get them.

As the heat rises between Charlie and Rafe, the deadly alien hunters circle closer. The light they seek to extinguish flickers in the gloom of Del’s fading mind—the memory of a…

About Before Mars

Hugo Award winner Emma Newman returns to the captivating Planetfall universe with a dark tale of a woman stationed on Mars who starts to have doubts about everything around her.

After months of travel, Anna Kubrin finally arrives on Mars for her new job as a geologist and de facto artist in residence–and already she feels she is losing the connection with her husband and baby at home on Earth.

In her room on the base, Anna finds a mysterious note, painted in her own hand, warning her not to trust the colony psychiatrist. A note she can’t remember painting.

When she finds a footprint in a place that the colony AI claims has never been visited by humans, Anna begins to suspect that she is caught up in an elaborate corporate conspiracy. Or is she losing her grip on reality? Anna must find the truth, regardless…
