Deficiency – Book Review

I just finished reading and reviewing this book a few days ago. Here is my review. Deficiency by S.C. Eston is a fully developed vision into the future of mankind that is both thrilling and terrifying in its impact.

Vikings of Loch Morar – Book Review

The Vikings of Loch Morar by William D. Burt is an interesting and fun blend of family adventure, mystery, science fiction, and historical fiction. This book is the second in the Creation Seekers series. I had not read the first book but I had no problem catching up. For the most part, this book feels like a stand-alone adventure. The characters occasionally refer to what happened in book 1, and anything that the reader needs to know is explained well. The story follows a family of scientists that includes a young man named John and his father and grandfather. They … Continue reading Vikings of Loch Morar – Book Review
