Golden Son by Pierce Brown is the sequel to Red Rising (our current book of the month). This is the second novel in a trilogy, which will be concluded this winter, and a great follow up to the first story. If you’re looking for some great science fiction, look no further.

As a fan of the Halo video games and sci-fi literature, I thought I’d give Hunters in the Dark by Peter David a try. It’s a standalone Halo novel, so I didn’t have to worry about being committed to a long series, and I didn’t have to worry about catching up on anything. Alas, sometimes trying new things doesn’t always turn out well. Click here to read our full review.

Blood of the Cosmos by Kevin J. Anderson is out today in hardcover from Tor Books.

Blood of the Cosmos: the second book in Kevin J. Anderson’s Saga of Shadows trilogy.

An epic space opera of the titanic conflict of several galactic civilizations against a life-destroying force of shadows, a dark cosmic force that has swept through the undercurrents of the human interstellar empire.

The intertwined plots, overflowing with colorful ideas, a large cast of characters, and complex storylines, span dozens of solar systems, alien races, and strange creatures.

As the second book of the trilogy opens, the humans and Ildirans, having narrowly escaped annihilation at the hands of the Shana Rei and their robot allies in Book One, are desperate to find a way to combat the black cloud of antimatter of the Shana Rei. The mysterious alien Gardeners, who had helped them previously, turn out to be a disaster in disguise and because of them, the world tree forests are again in danger. The allies believing they have found a way to stop their dreaded enemies, a new weapon is tested, but it’s a horrible failure, throwing the human race and its allies to the brink of extinction.

Christie Golden’s new Star Wars novel Dark Disciple will be coming out in July, but Star Wars isn’t the sci-fi franchise she started out with. Long before it, she wrote over a dozen Star Trek books. To widen my own field of fandom, I picked up The Murdered Sun by Christie Golden. Click here to read our full review.
