The Decadents, by M.C. Schmidt

3 out of 5 stars. If you want to read a great story, stop reading after the first third.

Revenger [Revenger #1], by Alastair Reynolds

3.5 out of 5 stars. A swashbuckling space pirate tale about revenge that tries to be a YA novel as well, but ends up being for the more adult audience.

The Chosen Twelve, by James Breakwell

3.5 out of 5 stars. Really interesting setting and story, dystopian countered by somewhat unbalanced humour.
