On to the full review…
Biosphere is a fast paced, action packed sci-fi short that is a page turning and thrilling read.
To say that this book is just over 100 pages Cole does an incredible job at making you forget its a short. Cole makes every word count and has you continually wanting to read the next page.
Cole sets up a really cool world in Biosphere: Hazard, these regimented futuristic settlements run by droids are really exciting to read about. Despite the page count of this boo you still learn quite a lot about the world and truly feel for each of the characters and their situations. This book had a really unique feel to it, and you just keep wanting more! To the point that I kinda want a full length novel of this book, with a bit more detail and history that full length novel affords a writer.
Now, I am a bit of a sucker for a good brothers storyline so I really enjoyed the plot of this sci-fi tale, add in the injections of gore and horror it is literally a perfect book for the season. I liked the character in this book and could understand the motivations of many of them considering the world they live in!
And whole planet prisons…well who doesn’t love that idea!
While this is a short review this is a supper fun read, it is season appropriate and it genuinely is a crazy, fast paced and fun read!
As you are now aware I rate on a buy the hardback, buy the paperback, buy eBook or library rental/wait for a sale scale. This is a BUY THE EBOOK ranked book for me.
- It is free with Kindle Unlimited
- It is a reasonable priced eBook
- I would read this again.
- I actually LOVE the cover to this little gem!
