of galaxies far, far away

Lightburst: Love Like Gravity by Mike Sheriff

The Disruptions aren’t the only thing troubling 16-year-old Bex. A mysterious melody haunts her thoughts and tugs at her heart. Bizarre blue-violet coronas orbit the heads of her friends and family like miniature galaxies.

Are the anomalies somehow connected to her dead sister? Are they the byproducts of an unravelling world? Are they the signposts of an unravelling mind?

A strange woman holds the answers. For Bex, the answers reveal a connection between life and death that she never dreamed possible.

Love Like Gravity packs a lot of punch into just 71 pages. I’m a big fan of the world Sheriff built in this novella – both his take on a near-future apocalypse and the super interesting spin on science that drives the story.

I’m not sure if there’s more to this tale or if it’s a standalone, but I’ll be hoping for a few more installments. It definitely left me wanting more. Grab it while you can!

Book That Face

Maze by Tony Bertauski

Ten players.

Memories wiped, their bodies each dropped into a tank. Their consciousness thrown into the Maze—a virtual reality where anyone is anything and anywhere. Battles are fought, riddles are solved. To win a lifetime of riches one has to escape the Maze. First, they have to remember who they are.

Some never do.

I mean really – who doesn’t love a lightning-fast, gritty sci-fi novella?

Maze was one hell of a ride – only 53 dark, suspenseful pages and it still managed to pack a wallop. The plot kept me guessing until the very end, and while the story is self-contained, it definitely got me itching to read the first proper book in the Maze series.

Be advised that this is an adult-oriented book, despite Amazon’s claims to the contrary. Absolutely worth snatching up!
