Currently Reading April 2023

 Hello Fellow Readers,

It's April! I know it's like the middle of April but still, we are a quarter of the way into 2023 and I actually feel good about my reading. I've started a groove and it's a lot of reading what I like and not reading just to read. If that makes sense. Anyway, let me show you what I am reading.

Speak of pain, and I’ll tell you of the Time who stole it away…

Besieged by war, ravaged by monsters, and crawling with the undead, the land of Okarria is dying. Seventeen-year-old Emara survives by using her modest healing gift to save as many as she can while eluding the invaders who thirst for her enchanted blood.

So when a cursed cat saves her life and reveals Emara is the legendary Time Heir the necromancer king’s been searching for, she agrees to act as bait in a plot to destroy him. But when the plan goes horrifically awry, Emara must discover how deep her powers go, what she can change…

And what she cannot.

Unfortunately, Time Heirs have a history of getting killed, and with Okarria’s future on the line, Emara may have no choice but to follow in her ancestors’ footsteps.

Monsters, mad science, and recklessly brave women collide in an unforgettable trip to the 1893 World’s Fair.

Fireman Rosie dreams of attending the Columbian Exposition for a glimpse of her hero, Nikola Tesla. When she is assigned to an overnight train bound for Chicago, she jumps at the chance. Her shift takes a dark turn when a peculiar trunk is discovered, and a passenger goes missing. Caught in a nightmare, Rosie must use her wit and courage to uncover the truth behind the mysterious cargo before more passengers disappear.

Strange Happenings is a series of short stories set in an alternate timeline, where steampunk technology clashes with the monstrous. The Monsters and Machines collection brings together five tales of mystery, horror, and adventure:

Something Happened on the Way to the World’s Fair
The Blood is Life
The Living Metal Man
The Assistant
The Resurrection Experiment

Ness Brown's The Scourge Between Stars is a tense, claustrophobic sci-fi/horror blend set aboard a doomed generation ship harboring something terrible within its walls.

As acting captain of the starship Calypso, Jacklyn Albright is responsible for keeping the last of humanity alive as they limp back to Earth from their forebears’ failed colony on a distant planet.

Faced with constant threats of starvation and destruction in the treacherous minefield of interstellar space, Jacklyn's crew has reached their breaking point. As unrest begins to spread throughout the ship’s Wards, a new threat emerges, picking off crew members in grim, bloody fashion.

Jacklyn and her team must hunt down the ship’s unknown intruder if they have any hope of making it back to their solar system alive.
