Slipstream & Oculus by @MichaelOffutt

So today I’m reviewing two books by
Michael Offutt
. They are Slipstream and Oculus.

Stars: 5

What an amazing series Offutt has created here, I just finished Oculus and I cannot wait for book #3. He’s created a complex reality of two words – Earth and a parallel dimension Earth called Avalon. Essentially our hero Jordan is an unliklely superhero. A star of the hockey team at Cornell in Oculus, he essentially has to save the world. In Slipstream he’s dragged to Avalon to fight some baddies, but when he gets home to Earth, a year later more baddies show up. There’s a black tower he has to find, and friends who unfortunately die. Without spoiling the book for you, it’s an amazing journey!!

Sci-Regency series by @jl_langley & @samhainpub

Cover of

Stars: 5

The Sci-Regency series so far has 3 books. It is by JL Langley. My Fair Captain (2007), The Englor Affair (2008), and My Relegence Rake (2012).

The books take place in the far future in an area of space where they have chosen the Regency period of England to follow as a form of modern government. There are two planets, Relegance, and Englor. Both have gone in different directions. On Relegence they so badly wanted guys to run the place, that all the nobles are genetically engineered to be gay. Englor is more like current-day Earth with it’s homophobic society and expectations of the King to marry a woman.

Hostile Takeover by @emlynley and @dreamspinners

So I’m going too start writing brief reviews of gay (and sometimes non-gay) books and ebooks that I have read. Unfortunately since I don’t have a lot of time, it’ll probably be if I really loved the booked, or felt strongly about the book. You’ve probably seen some of my shoutouts on Twitter and Facebook.

Today’s book is titled Hostile Takeover and it is written by EM Lynley and published by Dreamspinner Press.

Stars: 3

The book follows Mathias and Chase, once lovers and olympic hopefuls through the 10 years following their breakup, with numerous flashbacks to their relationship from having met at the US Olypmic Fencing Team trials to graduating with their MBAs.

Q. Tell me a little bit about yourself.

Well, I’m often processed, sliced thinly, and place between buns… Oh wait, you didn’t mean that… Well, I’m 24 yrs old without vices (except an addiction to the computer). I currently live in the Philippines and will likely want to live the rest of my life here. I would like to travel though given the opportunity. Writing for me is a hobby, from which reviews are a guilty pleasure. 🙂

Q&A with Nephylim – Part 2

[WARNING: This post may contain spoilers.]

Nephylim is the author of To Have and To Hold, and Hostage. She has graciously agreed to speak with me about herself, and her writing.

Q. Is Hostage and To Have and To Hold one book each, or will there be sequels?

I don’t know. There are no sequels planned. When I have a story inside me I let it out and that’s it. Enigma II is the only sequel I have ever, ever written and I actually have thoughts for more spin off short stories. Silver has affected me like no other character ever has and I keep coming back to him. I don’t think that is going to happen with Hostage or To Have and to Hold… nothing i certain though.

Q. Tell me a little bit about yourself

I’m a 46 year old mother of two. My daughter is 24 and has been in a relationship with her girlfriend for 5 years. They have been living away, attending the same university but they are back with me for a few months before they move on to the next stage of their lives. Having them here is wonderful as it is sometimes a bit isolated here. My son is 10 years old and an old soul.
