Book Reviews: Mountain of Stolen Dreams+Sideshow

Planet Builders #1: Mountain of Stolen Dreams by Robyn Tallis

This reminds me of Melinda Metz’s ‘Roswell High’ book series. In the future, the planet Gaugin is the latest to be colonized. A group of teenagers are sent out into the wilderness where they will learn some secrets about their new home.

This is an enjoyable read. The mysteries of the planet, the back-story of the colonization project and the revelations about the planet’s original inhabitants intrigue. This makes you overlook the trope teenagers and PC.

Sideshow by Sheri S. Tepper

Tepper has written disappointments like ‘Six Moon Dance’, ‘The Waters Rising’, ‘Shadow’s End’, ‘The Awakeners’ and ‘Raising the Stones’ and then she’s written weirdness like this novel.

On the planet Elsewhere, their way of life is well established. No deviation allowed. But strange occurrences and manifestations are afoot. Fringe Owldark is one of those investigating the goings on.

She is about to embark on a quest of wonders and horrors. This is a bizarre but enjoyable read.
