Smashwords book reviews by in potentia press

  • Tumbler on Feb. 07, 2010

    I don't read a lot of YA books, so I found the pacing and obvious feel-good message a bit off, but I really liked this story of life on an asteroid mine. Libby is a great character; this story almost had a western feel with its frontier town and grizzled old miners. Still, it had enough SF chops for a space story. I got a bit bogged down in the geology, but it's hard to have a mining story without a lot of rocks. All in all, a great teen/YA read.
  • Predestination (and Other Games of Chance) on Dec. 14, 2011

    This is a complex story about political intrigue, personal survival and poker. The poker is actually kind of minor, but it makes for a sort of bookended symbol for the story. Recommended for fans of political thrillers, space opera and erotica. If you don't at least tolerate all of these genres, this probably won't be for you.
  • Perishables on Nov. 20, 2012

    This book is essentially three stories that become interconnected. Plus recipes for food that is just as terrifying as the monsters in the stories. The first tale is a light-hearted vampire/zombie tale with added suburban angst. It is as light and fluffy as the ambrosia salad, and about as filling. However, readers who are expecting nothing more than a few tee-hees will be disappointed as the subject becomes darker and more intense as the stories progress. I greatly preferred the latter two stories, and was especially taken with the final story. It adds an element to the typical zombie fare which I've never seen before and was both horrifying and believable. What I've always liked about this author's work is the blurry line between happily-ever-after and the way things would probably really work out. Perishables is a vampire and zombies book, with no shortage of humour. But it still manages to address real issues of dealing with the aftermath of a traumatic event, the pain of being shunned by one's community and having to hide one's real self under a façade of normalcy. Those aspects of the book are where this author really shines, and those are 5 star sections.
