Reader Compares New Sci-Fi Novel to Asimov

By Karen A. Wyle
Second in series after Twin-Bred
Genre: Sci-Fi
ISBN: 978-1484889886

Reviewed by R. Lee Holz originally for Amazon and Goodreads


Reach is a worthy sequel to Twin-Bred, which I praised as one of the most original and beautifully written Sci-Fi novels I've ever read. The story line of Twin-Bred is continued and raised in level of depth and complexity. At the same time, a new and exciting story line is added. There is enough back-story provided that Reach can be read as a standalone novel. However, I think readers will benefit greatly from having first read Twin-Bred so as to fully understand how and why the Twin-Bred came into being and why the concept is so different from the usual human/alien encounter books. I trust and hope we are seeing the beginning of one of the outstanding Sci-Fi adventure series. Although the scope and focus differ greatly, I compare the emerging Twin-Bred series with Asimov's great Foundation novels in terms of interest and, particularly, political intrigue. Highly recommended.
