The first book of this anthology is relevant now as Mr. Martelle takes us to the future. It deals with a major issue in our armed forces. We can only pray that the future will be able to solve this terrible problem with peace.
The second book by Mr. Aarons deals with a woman attempting to live up to her mother’s reputation and sacrifice. While transiting a gate an ally attacks her ship forcing her to a defensive position. From here on the story spins at a rapid pace bringing her unknown information about her assignment and past to light.
Mr. Johnson’s book reminds us not all enemies are truly not of the killing variety. Th MC of his story learns more about herself and a possible new future full of possibilities.
Ms. Crayton plays to our fears with her excellent story. Fast paced she kept me flipping pages on this story.
Justin Sloan thrills us with his story reminding us that humans are not the only creatures to have pets in this spooky tale.
TJ Ryan gives us a story so twisted on itself that the reader is left feeling like maybe we shouldn’t believe everything we see is real and loneliness can kill you.
Mr. Pierson has a bit of futuristic magic for us with his offering. A Mage goes where he is lead to see what will be revealed to him and a new species is discovered. I look forward to more in this, I hope, new series.
Mr. Baldwin sends us to the depths of an alien sea where life is determined to survive at any cost – this proves that scientists aren’t always as knowledgeable or in control as they think. I certainly will be reading more of his books in the future.
Felix R. Savage is a prolific science fiction writer. I knew this was going to be a trippy story and I was right. This story goes to a visceral level of the psyche. When truth can be distorted by a government; who can inform its citizens in time of need.
Although I am on the majority of the authors' mailing lists, there are a few additional names that I will be following up on. Just what I need... more books for my personal 'Wall of China TBR pile'!
My favourites in this collection include (in no particular order):
James Osiris Baldwin - Those Who Breathe Under The End;
Bradford Bates - Smuggler For Hire;
Felix R Savage - The Signal and The Boys;
Jim Johnson - Within a Phrygian Sky;
Craig Martelle - Fear Peace;
Justin Sloan - Taken For a Walk;
JL Hendricks - Worlds Revealed.
The other stories are entertaining and interesting too, but not quite as 'impactful' as these ones.
Another reviewer touched on typos/errors. Anthologies are actually THE worst culprits for these (and I'm afraid this one is no different). In my opinion, a completed anthology needs to be proofread as a 'whole being' in order that everything is consistent, not just a series of 'bits' by different authors. *Gets down from her soapbox*
I was gifted an ecopy of this book by one of the authors (thank you!) and this is an honest review.
