Amazon: C.A. Farlow A Quantum Uncertainty (Nexus Trilogy #2)

1) I think I would have like to have read book one of this series first #1: A Quantum Convergence to get more of the background story on Lauren and Alex. In saying this I enjoyed the read it was very interesting.
2) SciFi through the fresh eyes of a real science person! The story is well-written and reflects some cutting edge scientific applications of theories suggesed as much as a century ago. The characters are a bit self-conscious but likeable. The science is presented in a clear and compelling manner and the SciFi angles are clever and creative. The writing overall is approachable and entertaining. This is the second book in the series.
3) This book left me a bit perplexed, but this is not a bad thing by itself. I loved the first book and this one still have the unique flavour to it. The story keep being interesting and left me with enough on the table that I want to know how things ends. The only two things that could have been done a bit better for me was the difference in pov in some parts of the story and how one of the protagonists seems a bit off center in this one. Everything else is very very very good.

2) Coils Barbara Ann Wright
Lesbian - Fantasy Romance
Paperback: 312 pages
Publisher: Bold Strokes Books (September 13, 2016)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1626395985
ISBN-13: 978-1626395985
Amazon: Coils Barbara Ann Wright

1) A breezy adventure story with a rather abrupt start and slightly underdeveloped characterization, but a tight, engaging plot and lots of imaginative ideas. Delving into the deeper aspects of Greek myth, and contrasting that with the pop culture versions of same, added some much-needed depth. In all, a fun book.
2) Barbara Ann Wright is a reliable author, changing genres and heroines but consistently delivering something unique and worth the read. Coils is no exception. The main character is instantly relatable, and the plot as it develops gains in complexity in weird and wonderful ways. A fun romp through the Greco-Roman afterlife with all but forgotten gods and goddesses...and monsters you might grow to love. I loved the unusual takes on mythology and the writing style was, as ever, compulsively readable.
