Review – The Silver Metal Lover by Tanith Lee

The Silver Metal Lover is a love story about finding yourself and the person that compliments, brings out the best in you. Their relationship is beautifully developed within the constraint of a future world beset with environmental issues and discontent, So even though it breaks my heart every time I read it, there is such joy and hope in this sublime sci fi tale that I can’t help but love it.

Review – The First Lie by A. J. Park

The premise can be ridiculous but a book will still engage me if other elements make it work. However if I don’t ‘get’ the characters and the plot goes from interesting to inexplicable to what the hell, then there’s very little to find appealing. The First Lie lost me early on the story and it never really recovered from there.
