From: Inside The Inkwell ~ by ~ Chris Schmitz *****
There is much to love in Andria Stone's Edge of the Future
...and much she really does well. First off, the cover is great--too many indie authors skimp here...Edge of the Future
jumps around our solar system with space travel, mechanical bio suits, nanobots and gun-toting cyborgs. The characters are great and there's a great chemistry...Stone really captures the essence of how guys relate to each other.
I also appreciated how things like racial diversity weren't lost to humanity...and it didn't feel forced or cliché. It's a little less heavy than The Expanse
, but takes place in a world with a similar feel, sans the injection of dour noir mystery and instead focusing on the adventure and plot (like the Star Trek
movies have done). If you liked The Expanse, you will like this book. Check out Edge of the Future!
From: The BookLife Prize ~ Critic's Report*****A Futuristic Thriller
: Stone's novel, Edge of the Future
, begins with an explosion--literally--and the pyrotechnics continue for the rest of the story. The plot is well-paced and is borne along well by its main characters and an identity-shifting villain, whose evil schemes keep the plot twisting and turning.

*****A near future sci-fi military fiction with heroes you can really cheer for. In fact, all of the characters in the story come off as real people with lives and backgrounds. That's saying a lot because most hard science fiction treats characters like cardboard cutouts useful only in advancing the plot. Not so in Stone's story. It's a fast engrossing read with plenty of action and a few great plot twists you won't see coming.

****Edge Of The Future. Pleasantly surprised...plenty of action, mystery and suspense...the story felt like the movies "RoboCop" and "Total Recall," with a few bits of the "Matrix" thrown in to keep us on our toes. I enjoyed the different medical and nanotechnology used in the story and it seemed believable in the future time the book takes place.

*****Tom Clancy goes Scifi. This book was so fun. From start to finish, it's fast and full of everything I love--military camaraderie, James Bond-worthy villains, technological wonders and loads of action. Andria Stone delivers a story you can't put down...and a cast of the future's finest to solve a tale unlike any other. Do yourself a favor and get book 2. You'll want to start it as soon as you finish this compelling tale.
