First thing first, Atomic is hilarious. I’m not talking about an open guffawing, belly-laughing kind of hilarious here, no; the humor is there, it’s often subtler than you’d expect it to be, but it’s well-executed regardless. Does said humor border on crass territory here and there? Sometimes. And it’s a good thing. A spade is a spade, and I appreciate a lot more someone willing to call it by its name rather than coating it with a PC layer.
Wow! What a cool idea! I’ll admit I always preferred my sci-fi with a dystopian flavor, so I might be a little biased here; still, Without Disruption is a real gem.
The thing is, it takes a lot of talent to write a sci-fi novel with something new to say. A fresh take. A Slave’s Revenge, the fourth installment of the Hell Holes series, does have that fresh take, and it comes under the form of demonic aliens. They hail from Hell, which is a physical place, and kidnap people in order to enslave them. Our MC, Paul, gets captured when he’s a teenager, and works his way to the top, sort of, before he manages to get his revenge. Saving the world while he’s at it may or may not be a plus.
When I received the tour invitation, I knew I had to snatch that chance up fast; sci-fi and elite agency looked like a great combo, and I was curious to see how it would play out. For the most part, I have to say I’m satisfied.

I've been offered an ARC of this book back in March. It took me a while to begin reading it, and now that I've finished it I'm so disappointed with myself for not reading it earlier. Let me present you the blurb, and then I'll tell you what made me love it so much.
Jamie, your prose and pacing are impeccable. Not a misplaced comma, a wrong word, info are doled out in precise, even amounts. Technically speaking, RH is perfect. It’s a relief for weary eyes ❤
Today I'm reviewing Orange City, by Lee Matthew Goldberg. As the snippet suggests, this is a dystopian novel set in a secret city. The city is ruled by a tyrant, and the most important rule is that its citizens have to obey, or else they end up in the Zones, a place nobody wants to end in.
Vaironian Tides (or Times, as my autocorrect likes to call it -.-) is the first ARC I scored on Booksirens, and therefore I had High Hopes© about it. Why? No idea. I've got to say that for the most part, VT lived up to them. Let's dig in.
