    Conquest is the next chapter in the great interstellar war between all living creatures and the machines. Star Force must stop the machine invaders once again - but how?

    In the fourth book of the Star Force series, Kyle Riggs has freed Earth from the chains of the Macros - but at what cost? The Macros no longer trust him. He is a mad dog that must be put down - and all Star Force must be stamped out with him. The war expands in this story, and mankind is once again faced with annihilation.

    What did you love best about Conquest?

    Yet another B.V. Larson success. Although the story is short, the action is non-stop and you never know if Earth's destruction is played out in the next chapter. And although this is an relentlessly unforgiving plot, demanding you to read on lest you miss the end of the world, there is time for genuine character development, although typically (and appropriately) masculine.

  • Night’s Master: Tales from the Flat Earth, Book One

    Story
    (43)

    Long ago when the Earth was flat, beautiful, indifferent Gods lived in the airy Upperearth realm above; curious, passionate demons lived in the exotic Underearth realm below; and mortals were relegated to exist in the middle. Azhrarn, Lord of the Demons and the Darkness, was the one who ruled the night, and many mortal lives were changed because of his cruel whimsy. And yet, Azhrarn held inside his demon heart a profound mystery which would change the very fabric of the Flat Earth forever.

    Kat Hooper says: "A gothic fairytale"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Whilst I love a dark story that ventures into realms seldom explored by novelists, this isn't narrative that maintained my attention. Broken into mini-narratives that read like fables, the reader is frustrated by the lack of flow and cohesion.


    What could Tanith Lee have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    A reader needs to be engaged by a narrative that draws them into the characters psyche and coerces them to read the next chapter anticipating how the protagonist will be thwarted, loved, endangered or become the victor. Tanith took too long between chapters to draw her threads together and failed to develop her characters.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Duerden – was your favorite?

    The concept of a Demon Lord who plagues the world with his mischief is not new, but begs to be told and re-told. Oh to hear more about his origins, motives and relationships.
