Reviews of Riebeckite

"I very rarely pick up a Sci-fi book but this one was presented to me as Sci-fi for people who don't like Sci-fi, and they weren't wrong! I found myself completely gripped from the first page and I could not put it down! The ideas presented by the author in this book are incredibly well thought out and brilliantly original."

"I loved this book from start to finish! The author clearly has a tremendous imagination plus such an amazing way with words, whether that be how he builds engaging characters & relationships, creates visions of beauty & horror in equal measure, devises compelling narratives & enchanting intrigue, all of which keep you wanting more…"

"This is a story that will stay with me for some time. It's an absolute page turner with an intriguing premise and two strong, complex female characters who are easy to root for, even with their flaws and moments of grey morality. I fell in love with the idea of the asteroid, the dust trail to the moon and just the picture of that sky which recurs throughout the book."

"The central idea behind the story is brilliant, and what gives it an extra flare is that it doesn't focus solely on the riebeckite threat, but that a huge part of it was the relationship between the two main characters and the thought-provoking socio-politio-cultural themes."

"A brilliant read! The author has a really beautiful way of describing things, especially when it comes to the moon and the ‘cobalt bruise’ on its cheek, creating lovely visuals. Along with the descriptions for emotions, they really make an impact and create a strong connection to the characters."

"I really, really enjoyed reading this novel, what a great story. It ticked all my boxes for adventure, suspense and excitement. There was a brilliant story of friendship too - that brought a tear to my eye on several occasions - making this a well-needed bit of escapism."

"This book had me hooked from the first chapter to the last. Set in the future but still recognisable, a clever combination of sci-fi thriller and a story of friendship against the odds. The attention to detail is superb, the characters fully believable, and the plot moves along at a great pace. I cannot wait for more from this author."

"The twists and ideas were wonderful to experience. The plot was well paced, and every scene felt vibrant and purposeful. The narrative was engaging and Tahira’s plight had me turning the pages with anticipation."

"An alien invasion that no one sees…..really want to read more from this author. Excellent story. Excellent characters. Think it took two days to read and I was hoping to find a sequel."
