Tentacles of Terror

    • Average 5.0 from 2 ratings
      • An Awesome read.  The story is engrossing and the characters are very
        real.  The various locations in which the story is set are wonderfully
        described.  5 out of 5  (Brendon)
      • This book is a great read.  The author has done a great deal of
        research to create a most engaging story.  The characters are so very
        real that you can really understand their thinking.  There are many
        unexpected twists and turns.  I like the way he mentions a fact
        unobtrusively early in the story which has unexpected and huge
        repercussions later on.   5 out of 5  (Neva)

There is a Gate that links the two worlds, though they are many Planes apart. It operates randomly, when at all, and it's much easier to get there from here – usually by accident – than it is to get here from there. Thus most creatures found here – for instance humans – are also found there. But then there are the others...

Rigantona has two continents. On one is the Empire – ancient, mainly benevolent, wealthy.

Check Mate

    • Average 4.0 from 1 ratings
      • From jbgarner58.wordpress.com:
        
        Happy coincidence has brought a recently-released dish onto this
        reviewer’s plate today.  The chef, Michelle Knight (interviewed here),
        was already in my review queue for some time now with an older recipe
        but, as her newest book came up for sale, I decided to take up this
        newest dish instead.  So is this near-future military sci-fi with a
        side of wit and comedy make for a fabulous meal or some bland tinned
        biscuits?
        
        Before we cut open the MRE package, let us recite the Starving Review
        creed:
        
        I attempt to rate every book from the perspective of a fan of the
        genre
        I attempt to make every review as spoiler-free as possible.
        
        Here’s the rub, my literary foodies, there’s a fine line between using
        humor to flavor a serious dish and overseasoning with humor to ruin a
        dish.  Comedy, especially dark comedy, is hard.  Good comedy is even
        harder.  So, let me put this particular dog to bed and say that the
        sugary sprinkles of comedy are properly used in this piece.  There is
        a certain Doctor Strangelove sort of feel to the comedic elements, as
        well as that dry British wit to the whole affair, and it sits well in
        this Reviewer’s stomach.
        
        With that clear, let’s attack the rest of the components of this meal.
         Check Mate presents a diverse cast of characters and handles those
        characters quite well.  Even the occasional stock minor characters is
        gifted with a particular spark of flavor that makes them just a bit
        more three-dimensional.  There was obviously care taken by the chef to
        make the characters more than the title of their jobs, no matter how
        stereotypical they may seem at first blush, and that defiance of
        stereotype is appreciated.
        
        The plot takes some interesting turns in the classic recipe of
        ‘military-killer-robot-goes-haywire’ (and yes, that IS a classic by
        this point!) while keeping its feet grounded in the realm of
        near-future technology.  The initial start is a bit more mellow than I
        expected it would be.  In fact, it veers dangerously close to an
        extended info-dump, yet it wasn’t to the point of off-putting.  It was
        a thick crust of necessary exposition but, past that initial bit, the
        pacing turns into a even and consistent flow of action and events,
        leading to a rather enjoyable final course.
        
        Stylistically, Check Mate is solid.  Once it hits its stride, the
        courses come along well, properly seasoned, with dutiful wordsmithing.
         If I have any stylistic complaints, it’s the occasional slip of
        British turns-of-phrase in a distinctly American setting.  Naturally,
        most readers probably won’t catch these, as I barely did and I’m a bit
        of an Anglophile, so I don’t see this detracting from most people’s
        meals.
        
        My one real quibble with this particular meal is I wish there was a
        bit more done from the haywire military robot’s point-of-view.  Not
        much, but there were a few bits early on that gives the reader some
        flashes of what is going on and I found those particularly brilliant
        while not giving away the overarching plot.  Some more scenes like
        that I think would have added a bit of needed spice at points during
        the last half of the book (into which I can delve no deeper because
        SPOILERS!).
        
        To bring it all together, Check Mate is a tasty near-future military
        romp mixing some dark comedy with killer robots!  It’s not *quite*
        perfect, but it’s really quite good and I can gladly recommend this
        meal to any lover of science-fiction or enjoys a splash of distinctly
        British dark humor with their meals!  Remember, again, to check out
        the Starving Interview to get a glimpse into the mind behind the
        book.
        
        FINAL VERDICT: **** (A tasty near-future military romp mixing some
        dark comedy with killer robots!)  4 out of 5  (visitor)

There is a Gate that links the two worlds, though they are many Planes apart. It operates randomly, when at all, and it's much easier to get there from here – usually by accident – than it is to get here from there. Thus most creatures found here – for instance humans – are also found there. But then there are the others...

Check Mate

    • Average 4.0 from 1 ratings
      • From jbgarner58.wordpress.com:
        
        Happy coincidence has brought a recently-released dish onto this
        reviewer’s plate today.  The chef, Michelle Knight (interviewed here),
        was already in my review queue for some time now with an older recipe
        but, as her newest book came up for sale, I decided to take up this
        newest dish instead.  So is this near-future military sci-fi with a
        side of wit and comedy make for a fabulous meal or some bland tinned
        biscuits?
        
        Before we cut open the MRE package, let us recite the Starving Review
        creed:
        
        I attempt to rate every book from the perspective of a fan of the
        genre
        I attempt to make every review as spoiler-free as possible.
        
        Here’s the rub, my literary foodies, there’s a fine line between using
        humor to flavor a serious dish and overseasoning with humor to ruin a
        dish.  Comedy, especially dark comedy, is hard.  Good comedy is even
        harder.  So, let me put this particular dog to bed and say that the
        sugary sprinkles of comedy are properly used in this piece.  There is
        a certain Doctor Strangelove sort of feel to the comedic elements, as
        well as that dry British wit to the whole affair, and it sits well in
        this Reviewer’s stomach.
        
        With that clear, let’s attack the rest of the components of this meal.
         Check Mate presents a diverse cast of characters and handles those
        characters quite well.  Even the occasional stock minor characters is
        gifted with a particular spark of flavor that makes them just a bit
        more three-dimensional.  There was obviously care taken by the chef to
        make the characters more than the title of their jobs, no matter how
        stereotypical they may seem at first blush, and that defiance of
        stereotype is appreciated.
        
        The plot takes some interesting turns in the classic recipe of
        ‘military-killer-robot-goes-haywire’ (and yes, that IS a classic by
        this point!) while keeping its feet grounded in the realm of
        near-future technology.  The initial start is a bit more mellow than I
        expected it would be.  In fact, it veers dangerously close to an
        extended info-dump, yet it wasn’t to the point of off-putting.  It was
        a thick crust of necessary exposition but, past that initial bit, the
        pacing turns into a even and consistent flow of action and events,
        leading to a rather enjoyable final course.
        
        Stylistically, Check Mate is solid.  Once it hits its stride, the
        courses come along well, properly seasoned, with dutiful wordsmithing.
         If I have any stylistic complaints, it’s the occasional slip of
        British turns-of-phrase in a distinctly American setting.  Naturally,
        most readers probably won’t catch these, as I barely did and I’m a bit
        of an Anglophile, so I don’t see this detracting from most people’s
        meals.
        
        My one real quibble with this particular meal is I wish there was a
        bit more done from the haywire military robot’s point-of-view.  Not
        much, but there were a few bits early on that gives the reader some
        flashes of what is going on and I found those particularly brilliant
        while not giving away the overarching plot.  Some more scenes like
        that I think would have added a bit of needed spice at points during
        the last half of the book (into which I can delve no deeper because
        SPOILERS!).
        
        To bring it all together, Check Mate is a tasty near-future military
        romp mixing some dark comedy with killer robots!  It’s not *quite*
        perfect, but it’s really quite good and I can gladly recommend this
        meal to any lover of science-fiction or enjoys a splash of distinctly
        British dark humor with their meals!  Remember, again, to check out
        the Starving Interview to get a glimpse into the mind behind the
        book.
        
        FINAL VERDICT: **** (A tasty near-future military romp mixing some
        dark comedy with killer robots!)  4 out of 5  (visitor)

        there was a bit more done from the haywire military robot’s
        point-of-view.  Not much, but there were a few bits early on
        that gives the reader some flashes of what is going on and I
        found those particularly brilliant while not giving away the
        overarching plot.  Some more scenes like that I think would
        have added a bit of needed spice at points during the last
        half of the book (into which I can delve no deeper because
        SPOILERS!).
        
        To bring it all together, Check Mate is a tasty near-future
        military romp mixing some dark comedy with killer robots! 
        It’s not *quite* perfect, but it’s really quite good and I
        can gladly recommend this meal to any lover of
        science-fiction or enjoys a splash of distinctly British
        dark humor with their meals!  Remember, again, to check out
        the Starving Interview to get a glimpse into the mind behind
        the book.
        
        FINAL VERDICT: **** (A tasty near-future military romp
        mixing some dark comedy with killer robots!)  4 out of 5 
        (visitor)

A stroke of fate saw two memory cards being swapped.

There is a Gate that links the two worlds, though they are many Planes apart. It operates randomly, when at all, and it's much easier to get there from here – usually by accident – than it is to get here from there. Thus most creatures found here – for instance humans – are also found there. But then there are the others...

Check Mate

    • Average 4.0 from 1 ratings
      • From jbgarner58.wordpress.com:
        
        Happy coincidence has brought a recently-released dish onto this
        reviewer’s plate today.  The chef, Michelle Knight (interviewed here),
        was already in my review queue for some time now with an older recipe
        but, as her newest book came up for sale, I decided to take up this
        newest dish instead.  So is this near-future military sci-fi with a
        side of wit and comedy make for a fabulous meal or some bland tinned
        biscuits?
        
        Before we cut open the MRE package, let us recite the Starving Review
        creed:
        
        I attempt to rate every book from the perspective of a fan of the
        genre
        I attempt to make every review as spoiler-free as possible.
        
        Here’s the rub, my literary foodies, there’s a fine line between using
        humor to flavor a serious dish and overseasoning with humor to ruin a
        dish.  Comedy, especially dark comedy, is hard.  Good comedy is even
        harder.  So, let me put this particular dog to bed and say that the
        sugary sprinkles of comedy are properly used in this piece.  There is
        a certain Doctor Strangelove sort of feel to the comedic elements, as
        well as that dry British wit to the whole affair, and it sits well in
        this Reviewer’s stomach.
        
        With that clear, let’s attack the rest of the components of this meal.
         Check Mate presents a diverse cast of characters and handles those
        characters quite well.  Even the occasional stock minor characters is
        gifted with a particular spark of flavor that makes them just a bit
        more three-dimensional.  There was obviously care taken by the chef to
        make the characters more than the title of their jobs, no matter how
        stereotypical they may seem at first blush, and that defiance of
        stereotype is appreciated.
        
        The plot takes some interesting turns in the classic recipe of
        ‘military-killer-robot-goes-haywire’ (and yes, that IS a classic by
        this point!) while keeping its feet grounded in the realm of
        near-future technology.  The initial start is a bit more mellow than I
        expected it would be.  In fact, it veers dangerously close to an
        extended info-dump, yet it wasn’t to the point of off-putting.  It was
        a thick crust of necessary exposition but, past that initial bit, the
        pacing turns into a even and consistent flow of action and events,
        leading to a rather enjoyable final course.
        
        Stylistically, Check Mate is solid.  Once it hits its stride, the
        courses come along well, properly seasoned, with dutiful wordsmithing.
         If I have any stylistic complaints, it’s the occasional slip of
        British turns-of-phrase in a distinctly American setting.  Naturally,
        most readers probably won’t catch these, as I barely did and I’m a bit
        of an Anglophile, so I don’t see this detracting from most people’s
        meals.
        
        My one real quibble with this particular meal is I wish there was a
        bit more done from the haywire military robot’s point-of-view.  Not
        much, but there were a few bits early on that gives the reader some
        flashes of what is going on and I found those particularly brilliant
        while not giving away the overarching plot.  Some more scenes like
        that I think would have added a bit of needed spice at points during
        the last half of the book (into which I can delve no deeper because
        SPOILERS!).
        
        To bring it all together, Check Mate is a tasty near-future military
        romp mixing some dark comedy with killer robots!  It’s not *quite*
        perfect, but it’s really quite good and I can gladly recommend this
        meal to any lover of science-fiction or enjoys a splash of distinctly
        British dark humor with their meals!  Remember, again, to check out
        the Starving Interview to get a glimpse into the mind behind the
        book.
        
        FINAL VERDICT: **** (A tasty near-future military romp mixing some
        dark comedy with killer robots!)  4 out of 5  (visitor)

        dutiful wordsmithing.  If I have any stylistic complaints,
        it’s the occasional slip of British turns-of-phrase in a
        distinctly American setting.  Naturally, most readers
        probably won’t catch these, as I barely did and I’m a bit of
        an Anglophile, so I don’t see this detracting from most
        people’s meals.
        
        My one real quibble with this particular meal is I wish
        there was a bit more done from the haywire military robot’s
        point-of-view.  Not much, but there were a few bits early on
        that gives the reader some flashes of what is going on and I
        found those particularly brilliant while not giving away the
        overarching plot.  Some more scenes like that I think would
        have added a bit of needed spice at points during the last
        half of the book (into which I can delve no deeper because
        SPOILERS!).
        
        To bring it all together, Check Mate is a tasty near-future
        military romp mixing some dark comedy with killer robots! 
        It’s not *quite* perfect, but it’s really quite good and I
        can gladly recommend this meal to any lover of
        science-fiction or enjoys a splash of distinctly British
        dark humor with their meals!  Remember, again, to check out
        the Starving Interview to get a glimpse into the mind behind
        the book.
        
        FINAL VERDICT: **** (A tasty near-future military romp
        mixing some dark comedy with killer robots!)  4 out of 5

Life is a game of chess and we have been programming our computers to play it for generations; each time honing the programs to work smarter, faster, with more efficiency and higher accuracy than ever before.

A stroke of fate saw two memory cards being swapped. In a military laboratory, the most powerful game of chess ever written was accidentally loaded in to an experimental, highly agile, weaponised robot. From the moment they hit the run command, that robot had only one purpose ... to win the game...
