Spotlight: Apophis by Raj Anand (and a $25 giveaway)

Hullo, friends! I’ve got another sci fi book for you to check out! Today we have Apophis by author Raj Anand.

This isn’t the first book with that title that I’ve encountered so I was interested. I looked up Apophis and found out that it’s the Greek name for the great demon serpent Apep in Egyptian mythology. Apophis is associated with earthquakes, thunder, darkness, storms, and death, and is sometimes linked to the god Set, also associated with chaos, disorder, storms, and darkness (source). Interesting. Also, it’s the name of near-Earth asteroid 99942, first discovered in 2004 and calculated to fly-by really close to our planet in 2029 and return years later (source). Very very interesting, right?

Anyway, this book is just as intriguing! Read more about it below, check out an excerpt and join in on all the book blast fun! Enjoy and goodluck! :)

It sounded like an interesting and unique take on different concepts and I love stuff like that. I checked out the reviews on Goodreads and they’re all pretty good so far.

Read more about the book, read an excerpt and read all the way to the end of the post to join in on all the blog tour fun! :)

Today I have something sci-fi for you! We’re featuring Dark Genius by author H. Peter Alesso!

At first I wasn’t so sure about joining the book blast for this book, so I did a quick research on the author and found out that he’s a scientist and has written a few space opera/adventure books that look interesting. So I thought, okay lemme help out with this one. Also, the blurb mentions the “God particle” so that really caught my attention. Yayyy.

Bookish Spotlight: Rarity From The Hollow by Robert Eggleton

Last year we featured the book Rarity from the Hollow, a unique science fiction novel  by author Robert Eggleton. The new edition was just released recently so we’re featuring it again!

I find this book really intriguing but I have yet to read it (I haven’t been reading this month gah!). According to the author the book is “not hard science fiction and includes elements of fantasy, everyday horror, a ghost – so it’s a little paranormal, true-love type romance, mystery, and adventure.” The book also addresses social issues like child abuse, domestic violence, poverty, mental health, as well as local and intergalactic economics.

Anyway, please read on to know more about the book and support this author!
