Journeys Through SpaceTime (Journeys Through Book 1) by James Talisman – Review by Beth McKitrick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is a lot for me. I tend to enjoy fluffier, easy reads, which this is definitely NOT. It’s not a bad book, it just wasn’t really my style. However, if you like sci-fi/fantasy books with lots of world-building and many characters, you’ll definitely love this! It reminds me a bit of game of thrones, which is an amazing series but too complex and hard-to-follow for my to really get into and enjoy. Many other people love them though!

Journeys Through SpaceTime is a complex, multi-layered story. Not a bad one, just hard to get a handle on at first. As I kept reading, it became easier to read and get a handle on the flow of the story. Once that happened I really got in to all of the “worlds” that Tailisman built.

While some parts are a bit wordy, the action adventure, and characters kept me engrossed. Talisman definitely gives each world its own feel with loads of space and time factors, and tons of plots, hidden agendas and conspiracies.

Tailosman definitely left us wanting more, while tieing up a few threads. In a way this book left me feeling like I had just read a spacey J. R. R. Tolkien or “Game of Thrones”.

I will definitely be reading the second in this series.

This book was different then things that I normally read, but I love it. It kept me going back and forth trying to figure out what was going to happen next. This book also had a few different main charters, and at 1st I had trouble keeping them straight. However, once I got about halfway through it got easier. I would definitely recommend everyone to read this book.

Well written and intriguing story. I was not sure how I was going to feel about this one, as sci-fi is not normally something I read, but I gave it a go and was pleasantly surprised at how it kept my attention. Initially, I felt the story was fragmented and hard to follow as it jumps around between multiple perspectives that don’t seem to have any connection. Once you get past this initial part, the story’s are all quite interesting. The various stories and perspectives that are shared range from edge of your seat, accidentally reading past your hour break at work (oops), to interesting enough to still be thinking about it later in the day. I really enjoyed getting opposing perspectives in the same storyline in some cases. I think this really made for a well-rounded and immersive experience. I would definitely read again, and plan to read the next book!

Can I just say, again, wow what a read!?!? First off I really just commend the author for adding a Character List at the beginning of the book as this was very helpful. There are many characters with different POVs and so much detail, this really made me think I wanted to be part of this story in the book. I love the action, adventure, mixed with betrayal all wrapped into this book. The author did such a fantastic job on details and having different worlds revolving around all the characters. I love the fantasy/sci fi in this and truly looking forward to diving into book 2.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Alterations was a very interesting read, while Sci/fi isn’t usually my thing I really enjoyed this short read. While alterations was a short read Jane Suen was able to pack a lot of information into her pages and developed her characters well. Her characters are so well developed and the story so intriguing that you’ll find yourself quickly devouring this book in one sitting. Ms. Suen gives us so much mystery,and drama that she will keep you guessing until the very end. So if your looking for a Sci/fi filled with great characters, mystery, drama and more then you should read Ms. Suen’s Alterations.

This is an excellent sci-fi read! I so enjoyed all of the characters that you get to read about and it helps that there is a character list at the beginning of the book. I loved reading all if the different descriptions of the multiverse! I really liked reading about Hirisho and about Rashella. The writer is descriptive but not overboard and he has a great writing style. I look forward to reading more from James Talisman!

Alterations (Alterations #1)Alterations by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alterations is a mysterious sci-fi read that draws you in from the first chapter and holds you captive until the last. What really drew me into this book was the theory of it all. Science is constantly advancing, changing, and things like cellphones, microchips, and robots are ever-changing – the impossible has become possible. So, when the idea of ‘altering’ something on cellular levels is posed in the way that it has been in this book, I was hooked. The events of the book are told in such a way you’re constantly finding something new out – either about the advancements of a doctor’s technology or that of the lives of people he’s directly or indirectly affecting. You can see the intentions of the tech is good, but there’s that little voice in the back of your mind whispering, ‘something’s not quite right here…’.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This original and intriguing story is the first book in a new trilogy and having been gripped all the way through this first instalment I now can not wait for book two. This fairly short but action packed read is a real page turner of a sci-fi thriller and although not my normal genre I was thoroughly immersed in the unique storyline and felt engaged with the main characters. This is a book that really gets the reader thinking. The story is told from three very different but relatable women’s view, Gigi, Ellen, and Lilly all of whom are desperate to change their lives and so turn to the fourth main character, the mysterious Dr. Kite. He offers them a radical new medical procedure, a ‘quick fix’, an implant that can control their mind. The three women are willing to risk the unknown side effects in the hope that they find the happiness they crave. However, will getting their deepest desires become their worst nightmare. A thought provoking read which I definitely recommend and as the story continues in book two I am now eager to read the next instalment.

I enjoyed this book by Jane Suen. Alterations explored the possibility of individuals being able to change aspects of their bodies or minds with technology. The story gave us a glimpse of what the future could be, both the good and the bad should humans try to go down the path of playing god in the attempt to perfect the human body. Jane Suen’s novel provides both hope and caution to humans as we continue to look for easy fixes in a quest to live forever. Jane Suen is a new author for me but based on the book Alterations, I look forward to reading more from her.
