Review: QUANTUM COP by Lesley Smith

QUANTUM COP is one of the most delightful stories I've had the pleasure of reading. Delightful, because it's enjoyable, entertaining, and as well, thought-provoking. In addition to being a fast, pleasurable, read, QUANTUM COP stretched my mind and my imagination from the very first page.

The characters are realistic and well-developed. Madison, the protagonist, is a brilliant, adventurous,, scientist and academic, but a little too prone to emotional fallout, as is the very hapless grad student she advises, who inadvertently enters into Madison's unexpected experiments with reality creation.

All told, I highly recommend this great read.

Transient Echoes (The Variant Saga, #2)Transient Echoes by J.N. Chaney
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


In this sequel to THE AMBER PROJECT (VARIANT #1), author JN Chaney weaves a blend of futuristic science fiction with Dystopiana, survivalism, and otherworldly fantasy. After an alien gas known as Variant destroyed most of humanity in the 22nd century, leaving only a small enclave to live underground, genetic engineering and improved technology have finally allowed human scientists and military explorers to live aboveground, provided they remain a safe distance from the residue radiation caused by the Second Jolt. Meanwhile, the hybrid child Terry, who closed the Rift which allowed in Variant, is exiled unwillingly and unintentionally to a farflung world where survival is equivalent to the life experienced by earthly cavepersons. An extraordinary vivid and poetic imaging keeps the story turning.
