Smashwords book reviews by Martin Krischik

  • Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0: Origins on Sep. 01, 2009

    This is really good, among the best I ever read. And I read a lot of SciFi.
  • Spinward Fringe Broadcasts 1 and 2: Resurrection and Awakening on Sep. 01, 2009

    The story continues and get better all time. Do read the Omnibus first - it's worth it. Just one nitpick: The font size changes between book 1 and 2 (LRF) - a bit more care on layout might be nice. I still give 5 stars as the story is just great.
  • Spinward Fringe Broadcast 4: Frontline on Feb. 09, 2010

    I must say I lost count on how may times one of the hero's left Hyperspace or a Wormhole only to find them self in an ambush. Eventually even the dumbest would eventually learn the value of doing reconnaissance first. Still an good read, good story, well developed characters, full of potential.
  • Spinward Fringe Broadcast 3: Triton on Feb. 09, 2010

    Good story, well developed characters, gripping Story.
  • Princess of Amathar on Feb. 11, 2011

    Well done description of a strange world. Great storyline. Even a hint of romance. And all that for just a dollar. It does not get any better than this.
  • First Contact (In Her Name, Book 1) on March 15, 2011

    I had been sceptical about a prequel if it could actually work. But I have to say it worked out well. The Story is well done and thrilling. A very enjoyable read — if you are from the US. If you are an international reader — like me — you will be in for a lot for US centric chauvinism. All the presented Terran armies are descendent of US corps and the president of all Terra (and later all humanity) is from the US as well.
  • Brechalon on April 24, 2011

    Very nice explanation of the background of the characters. I suggest to read it before the main series.
  • Legend Of The Sword (In Her Name, Book 2) on April 24, 2011

    The Kreelan sub-stories are marvellous as always and highly enjoyable. But like “First Contact” the human part of the story is just to US centric for an international reader to stomach. Especially if you have ever been to one of the countries of the soviet union and know for example just how fashion aware the women living there are. And they had been in the area of the soviet union as well. None of that everyone wearing grey dull uniform clothing. My suggestion (again): If you are from the US read it and enjoy to have your stereotypes reinforced. If you are from anywhere else skip it.
  • The Voyage of the Minotaur on April 24, 2011

    A very nice and enjoyable read. However, unlike Mrs Joseph, I can't help but side with the natives.
  • The Dark and Forbidding Land on April 24, 2011

    I bought all three books of the series in one go and I did not regret it. A very nice read.
  • The Drache Girl on April 24, 2011

    A very nice series. Characters continue to evolve and change. Nothing can be taken for granted (main characters might not survive). I only think which disappointed me: I really hoped the settlers get there arrogant arse kicked a little more. But who knows - maybe that is what the author wanted to archive after all.
  • His Robot Wife on Sep. 03, 2011

    Great book.
  • Women of Power on March 02, 2012

    Don't be put off by the “strange” cover. This book is funny without end.
  • Dead Soul (In Her Name, Book 3) on March 02, 2012

    Gripping space opera, a great read from the first to the last page.
  • Spinward Fringe Broadcast 10: Freeground on Jan. 22, 2023

    The book I stopped reading the series. Sadly the protagonists moved from freedom and liberty to authoritarianism and aristocratic rule. There is also woke lecturing I didn't care for.
