Focusing on the humanity of worlds--whether fantastical, futuristic, or our own, is something that's always been very important to me. I'm so grateful that The Reviewer understands how important it is to remember the roots of SFF!
"V. S. Holmes's storytelling is what good science fiction should be: smart but heartfelt, full of profound ideas delivered with a sense of humanity. Travelers is engaging precisely because it is about something all of us have experienced: That moment when you grow up enough to realize that the universe is more wondrous―and dangerous than you could ever have imagined. Lovers of character-focused sci-fi will find plenty to enjoy in this gripping alternate science fiction adventure book."
I am so, so honored when I get reviews like this one from Scribble's Worth. Writing Nel's journey always has its ups and downs, and I worry sometimes whether her temperamental, hard-headed personality will strike its mark. Huge thank you to the reviewers at Scribble's Worth and to Creative Edge for connecting us!
"A razor-sharp story where our MC runs, barefoot on top of the blade. Excellently told, as we can feel every emotion, every droplet of panic on the dangerous scenes in the book!
This book is AWESOME! One of those you can’t turn your eyes away from. *Claps*. Mysterious characters that we know already but somehow are completely new, love stories, heartbreak, exes, chase, bullets, wounds and infection, rotten meat, the FBI and… sexy aliens. HA! Original in so many ways. Deep, solid, gripping, heart warming, heart-breaking and with "steamy doses of lesbian sex. Oh, and curses. Lots of curses. What is there not to love?!"
