About Beth Reason

I love to try new ways to create things. However, writing is the only thing I always come back to. Life interrupted my path several times, until finally my family said to bite the bullet and give this scary "putting myself out there" thing a try.

An engaging story. I read it using the text to speech function of my Kindle while commuting. The story moves along nicely for the most part it is believable. I would like to read more in a series if it was offered. Will be looking for other books by the author.

Added this book to our library after reading the reviews. They are pretty much right on. Excellent story, unique environment, interesting and believable characters. I was sucked into the story right from the start, and right through to the end. It's very consistent for quality. Some minor editing errors, but overall a very, very good book. And yes, we have more of her books now!

I loved this book so much that I signed up for a Smashwords account just so I can post a review, and buy a few of the other books this author has here.
The book has such a unique premise and the main character’s world view is so different and refreshing. The first half of the book was absolutely brilliant. Second half looses a bit of the originality of the initial idea but it is still a great read all the way through.

I love the descriptions, dialogue, concepts, and overall strength of emotions that are described in this story. The premise of someone like the main character, his journey, his situation in general, is something I don't think I've ever seen addressed in a sci-fi novel before. Small bits of editing errors show up throughout the story but man, the ideas! The blending of future technology with contemporary values, and a population's ever present fear of the unknown - in other words, REAL stuff... very enjoyable to say the least. Well done!

A refreshingly good read, thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope the rather abrupt ending promises more to come, (not a criticism, just a wish for more).

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, it brought back an excitement that I hadn't felt in a while when reading science fiction. When I was 10, I discovered science fiction in the school library, an author named Andre Norton, who was really Mary Alice Norton, a librarian and so much more. She wrote of space adventurers, cops, rangers, and animals that were our equals and partners. Telepathy, cultures, love, hate, anger, politics, but told simply and clearly. Strong women and men, who I could look up to and want to emulate, want to be, especially the telepaths who could communicate with animals. I found that excitement again with Ms Reason's characters, her cultures, worlds, galaxies. Our search for love, and purpose. Her explanations and descriptions rang true to me. I look forward to more of her writings.

I loved this book. Not the usual science fiction dealing with futuristic weapons & weird aliens. This book made you think about real feelings.
I hope Beth Reason is already working on the new adventures of Ashnahta and Jake.
