Upcoming Review: Redeye by Michael Shean

Redeye by Michael Shean

Back in September 2015 I was overawed with Michael Shean’s Shadow of a Dead Star, the first in a speculative cyberpunk sci-fi series that questions our acceptance of new technology by injecting a terrifying conspiratorial justification for it.

Shadow of a Dead Star Review 

In one or two weeks I should have the review to its sequel, Redeye, posted on Alex James Book Review for your reading pleasure. It has taken me a while to read, but suffice to say for now that it has been a emotional rollercoaster ride! 

Description of Redeye:

Two years have passed since Agent Thomas Walken and Bobbi January found themselves at the heart of a conspiracy of unimaginable greed and cruelty. The Genefex Corporation remains shrouded in mystery, and Bobbi faces a life of unanswered questions and mounting disillusionment to look forward to. But when she receives a mysterious message from one of Walken’s former comrades, she is drawn back onto the trail. Now, Bobbi will find herself newly equipped to discover the truth – about Walken, about Genefex and the Yathi race – and the key to unlocking those secrets rests in the hands of a cyborg terrorist known only as Redeye.

But the road to truth will be a dangerous one, from the glamour of Seattle’s ultramodern core to the sprawling wastelands of the Old City and beyond. Alongside a band of lethal comrades, Bobbi will face death and worse amidst urban rot, abandoned subway tunnels, and ultimately the nightmarish halls of the Yathi themselves in a race to stave off what may prove to be the death of humanity itself. Drenched in blood and neon, Redeye is a tale of humanity on the edge of a new and terrible reality.

Classic Sci-Fi Fantasy

Foundation and Empire by Isaac Asimov – 5/5 Stars

Read: January 2014

Thought-provoking space-opera with concepts that get you thinking about technology, empire, and conflict.

My Review

‘I had to read the sequel to Foundation after I had read it. Asimov’s ideas pulled me in the most with the strength of gravity; ideas that span the breadth of an Empire.’

Queen Of Knights by David Wind – 5/5 Stars

Read: April 2014

One of my best all-time epic/historical fantasy novels. The magic, passion, and rivalry amounted to a great piece of fiction.

My Review

‘Much of the focus of this story seems to be in England, and is based on the love between the Lady Gwendolyn and the Knight Miles Delong, whose fates are determined by mystical powers. However there is a lot of stimulating rivalry later on…’

Revolt in 2100 by Robert A Heinlein – 5/5 Stars

Read: May 2013

Revolt in 2100 took me completely by surprise. I quickly took to the main character and was thrust into the political reality of a futuristic revolution that felt somehow relevant.

My Review

‘I bought this book for a few pounds at a market. The copy I had was published in 1972. The person I bought it from told me Robert Heinlein was one of the original thinkers of the science-fiction age, and I don’t think he was wrong.’
