The Circuit: Executor Rising
By: Rhett C. Bruno
Sub-Genres: Solar System Colonies / Dead Earth / Political / AI / War & Rebellion – Stars, this book has it all.
Rating: 5 Stars
The Circuit, I believe, has a little bit of something for every science fiction reader. Although there are a few hiccups, mostly with over-description, I could find no true negatives while reading this book. It offers “massive world building done right”, an exploration of human nature, the development of artificial life, politics, social conflicts and a fully fleshed-out, believable future. The characters within The Circuit are unique and three dimensional, and most have no black or white lines drawn – offering instead a gray concept of justice and injustice that all depends on how you, the reader, relate to the characters and their motivations.
For the author’s ability to allow the reader choice when it comes to deciding who is right or wrong, although I dare say that is a highly blurred line in this book, I give The Circuit five stars.
Thought I’d take a break from our regularly scheduled programming to discuss something else I enjoy besides writing and reading. This past weekend, Steam, a digital gaming platform and community, had their annual Summer Sale. They do big sales like these twice per year (the other being their Winter Sale) in which popular game titles, from big names to indi-produced, go on sale, sometimes for under 5$. I picked up four games this time around, spending 25$ of my royalties on over 100$ worth of games. Three of them are in the sci-fi genre, so I thought I’d give three reviews in case you’re interested in something new to play. Continue reading

Welcome to the SFR Brigade Midsummer Blog Hop!
Below you will find an excerpt about two lovers under the stars, a giveaway including Amazon Gift Cards and eBooks, and links to other great Science Fiction Romance reads!
For the past month, my writing time has been devoted to working on my contemporary romance series, The Stables. This has left the Science Fiction side of my brain restless. It has decided to start a little flash fiction project over on Wattpad.
Under These Same Stars is a short/flash fiction story collection based around different experiences during what could be the last night before Earth is destroyed. I don’t have an update schedule for it, but I am going to try and add at least one new chapter per week. Each chapter is from a different perspective, but they will all work together to tell a complete story (at least that’s the plan in my head.)
Check out the story on Wattpad here If you feel up to it, click the Favorite/Vote button on the story and leave me a comment to say what you think of the idea.
