Strength – Book Review

Strength by Lauren H. Salisbury is part two in her literary saga that is loosely based on the Biblical life of Moses. The characters, settings, and even the plot are completely reimagined and a reader could easily read Strength and never know it was based on a Bible story. Probably the most peculiar thing about this book, and what attracted me to it in the first place, is that it has been turned into a work of science fiction. Strength picks up with Mahsan (the representation of Moses) as a teenage boy living on an enormous alien space cruiser with his adopted mother, … Continue reading Strength – Book Review

A Star Curiously Singing – Book Review

Who says Christian science fiction has to be predictable and boring? A Star Curiously Singing by Kerry Nietz is a first-rate sci-fi thriller with a plot that’s completely original and it definitely isn’t boring.

That means his whole existence is defined by his enhanced abilities to program and repair artificial intelligence. When a robot goes crazy on a government spaceship, Sandfly is brought in to find out … Continue reading A Star Curiously Singing – Book Review

Courage – Book Review

I thoroughly enjoyed Courage by Lauren H Salisbury. It’s a science fiction re-imagining of the story of Moses from the Bible. Instead of Israelites suffering as slaves at the hands of the Egyptians, Courage gives us the human race enslaved by a powerful alien race. Courage is book one in the Legacy Chronicles series. It covers the beginning of the story where, in the Bible, Pharoah orders the killing of all male babies and in desperation, Moses’ mother sends her baby boy down the river in a basket, leaving him in God’s hands. That’s how it plays out in the … Continue reading Courage – Book Review
