Blogiversary: Top Sci-fi

Now we're on to sci-fi books. You can access these books, along with others and some generic articles by clicking on the "science fiction" link in the left hand column, or by clicking the "science fiction" tag at the bottom of this article. 

Number 3: Knox's Irregulars, by J. Wesley Bush

This one is worth the read if you enjoy sci-fi military action with a dash of faith and sprinkle of humor. While it wasn’t my favorite, it still makes for a good book if your TBR pile is shrinking too rapidly.

Number 2: Firebird, by Kathy Tyers

First off, how have I not gotten around to book two yet? This is a serious problem.

Secondly, this is a good sci-fi novel with some epic space battles and balanced with good character development. The worldbuilding is excellent, but it's number two for being a little difficult to get into.

Number 1: A Star Curiously Singing, by Kerry Nietz

The wit and character voice in this story catapulted it into first place, even though it isn't as heavy on the action as the above books. Sandfly's sense of humor is spot on. The book couples great world-building with this for a nice read.

Honorable Mention:

The Word Reclaimed, by Steve Rzasa
-I'd like to revisit this series. The political intrigue at the end was interesting, but it needed just a little more to get it into the top three.

Talon's Test and the Shield of Faith, by Nicholas Downing
-This was my first book review, so of course it should be mentioned!


  1. A Star Curiously Singing sounds interesting. :)

    1. I enjoyed it. It's definitely a bit different. I don't know if you've had a chance to check out the actual review, but it's set on a futuristic earth where some people are given chips in their heads to be able to "talk" to machinery in order to repair it. A starship comes back reprogrammed and talking about "a star curiously singing" and one of the "debuggers", Sandfly, is sent to investigate.

      I don't know if you have a kindle or a kindle app, but it's still currently free on kindle, if that makes you more interested.

      Thanks for the comment!

  2. Ooh, I have A Star Curiously Singing free on Kindle. I've been wanting to read it for quite a while now but just haven't gotten around to it. Perhaps this summer? It's good to see that people like it. :D

    And actually, I got to meet the author last year at Realm Makers! That was a cool experience. ^.^
