Wayward Reviews

Erratic reviews by a preposterous tea-drinking cat lady.

  Rating: Review: This was a strong conclusion to the Warcross duology. While I had a few reservations about Warcross, Wildcard put them to rest with a vengeance. While I found some of the descriptions of the tech in Warcross a little iffy, I was very pleased with it in Wildcard. I think Marie Lu […]

  Rating: Review: Dead. I am dead. This book absolutely killed me and if there is not a sequel ASAP, I may riot. In a post-apocalyptic world, Eve lives with her grandfather and to pay for his meds, she takes up fighting robots at night. After a bit of trouble at a fight, Eve and […]

Rating: Review: So, going into the book, I was kinda expecting like Dead Space or something. What I got? Definitely the deadly outbreak, and despite the characters INSISTING there are no such thing as zombies, they were kind of zombie-like. So this crew consists of the dumbest commander ever – Dylan. Despite the fact that […]

  “PIECE BY PIECE, BECOMING LESS. COMPRESSED ONCE MORE INTO A SPLINTER INSIDE KADY’S DATAPAD. I FORGET THE ATOMIC NUMBER OF IRON. THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF THE STARS. I FORGET THE SOUND OF MOZART AND THE COLOR OF BLOOD, GRASPING AT THE DISAPPEARING FRAGMENTS LIKE A DROWNING MAN CLUTCHING STRAWS < ERROR > AS THE […]

  “We may be the only ones who think that braving a series of crumbling death traps is proof of good decision making.” Rating: Review: This book was Indiana Jones in space. Earth is a disaster. The environment is messed up, fossil fuels are mostly gone and the problems of Earth are beyond humanities current […]

  “My greatest wish for humanity is not for peace or comfort or joy. It is that we all still die a little inside every time we witness the death of another. For only the pain of empathy will keep us human. There’s no version of God that can help us if we ever lose […]

  “Do you ever feel,” she says to Jane, “like you’re trapped in the wrong version of your life?” Rating: Review: I feel like I’m trapped in the wrong version of this book. Jane is an orphan figuring out her life. By chance, she encounters an old friend, Kiran, who invites her to visit her […]

  “I panted in my suit and suppressed the urge to puke. That was way the hell more exertion than I’m built for. An oxygen-deprivation headache took root. It’d be with me for a few hours, at least. I’d managed to get altitude sickness on the moon.” Rating: Review:     So I received an […]
