The Settlers: Book 1 of The Movement Trilogy by Jason Gurley
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Start to a Series!, June 19 2014
I picked this book up in search for a new sci-fi series I could get into. At first, the prose is a bit different and takes some time to get used to (think Jose Saramago), but the story itself is quite engaging.
The setup to the series is done quite well, although at times it felt like the story was jumping a little too much. This may be a personal thing and it doesn't take away from the overall setup, but it did slow me down at points. Otherwise, I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series and was not disappointed with my purchase.
The Prospect of My Arrival (2nd Edition) by Dwight Okita
If you just read the description of the book and it caught your interest, it is worth your time to pick up and read.

I think the author does a great job at digging into the themes he opens up, but kind of leaves the reader hanging in the end. It almost felt like Okita takes his time to open everything up and then closes it quickly.

This may have more to do with not wanting to drag the book out and doesn't take away from the overall enjoyment. Worth the read if this original idea catches your fancy.
Inhuman (Book 5) (Post-Human Series) by David Simpson

Having devoured the first four books in the series, I was excited to purchase Simpson's latest release in the Post-Human series.

At first, I wasn't sure how he could continue the series based on the way the third book wrapped up (not to spoil the fourth book - it does fit, but in a different way). However, he does it in such a clever way that I immediately wanted to go back and read the first three books again.

He also opened up the universe completely, allowing his readership to anticipate future titles in the series, which is exciting. My only hope is he doesn't drag it out, but based on the brilliant moves he made here, that won't happen for several books.
