Why Read?: Review
Challenges: 100 Books in a Year

I was expecting hardcore sci-fi when I started Warp World, instead, Kristene Perron and Joshua Simpson pleasantly surprised me with a sci-fi with a fantasy feel.

Seg is on his first mission to find vita, a fuel that is vital to saving his world but must be harvested from other worlds.  Ama is a head-strong sea captain who is about to lose her license.  When these two meet, neither had any clue the adventure that awaits them...one that puts their very lives at stake.

What I enjoyed best about Warp World was the feel.  The plot was intriguing and complex, the world was unique and full-formed, and the characters were interesting and well-developed, but what kept me coming back to read - as this is in no way a one-sitting novel - was the mood and tone.  Perron and Simpson have created a work that is highly readable as it cocoons the reader in a time and space nothing like our own, yet totally believable.

As Warp World shows, Kristene Perron and Joshua Simpson make an excellent writing team.  I hope to see more futuristic works by this team in the future

Rating 4/5
