I read a lot of fiction, and my interests primarily lie with Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror, and subgenres and fusions of that. I mention that because I'm pretty jaded at this point to it, so it's very rare that a book or a series comes along that I really love. The characters in "Reality Bleed" are great, the monsters are great, the overall theme and plot are exactly what I love, and the setting and background are superb. I won't give anything away, but I will say that you should read this series if you have any interest at all in Sci-Fi Horror. Easily earned all five stars.
This is not something to read before bed. The adrenaline pumps through you as these authors take you on a nightmarish ride. This will keep your mind churning with the “what if’s” all night long. Tealson is probably my favorite character. Braun.... I just don’t get him. Maybe I’m not supposed to? In short, don’t knock on doors unless you absolutely know what’s behind them.
Crash. Burn. Die. is the 3rd book in this new series and it is a rollercoaster ride from the first page to the last. When I got to the end it was NO WAY, I need to know what happens, who is left and do they make it out? This is a strong story about an international space station set on the planet Mars and how Earth has not been able to contact anyone and sends this small group of people out in order to see what is happening and they end up in a battle to save not only the space station inhabitants but to save their crew from these horrific alien monsters set on destroying each an every person onboard the space station. I am very excited for the next chapter in this series.
Foster and Woodward have hit their stride! The third installment of the Reality Bleed series is the sharpest yet. There is so much to love about this series and this particular installment, I will try to break it down. First I have to say the characters are well written and three dimensional. Alice Winters is a badass and one of my favorite female characters written by men. I am 100% invested in her. Also the villains, oh lord, some are human, some are not, but they are all vile and unique and greatly entertaining. The atmosphere is so terrifying. I find myself getting second hand anxiety for the characters. Another thing I love about these books is the length, they are perfect for a one sit read, which is really what you need because you can’t put them down once you start. I think one of the most important things about this series is that it feels plausible, which is ridiculous considering the subject matter, but these authors have created a world that feels real, real enough to frighten you. I don’t know if I consider this a pro or a con, but they absolutely leave you hanging and dying for more at the conclusion of each book. Both of these authors are great on their own but their collaborative work is on another level, you might even say it is out of this world(I couldn’t help myself). This series is inexpensive and easy to read so you really have nothing to lose. READ THESE BOOKS!
I opened this books with questions running threw my head. Will the crew make it off mars and back to earth? Did the creature make it onto the ship? Who's still alive and who has died?!? COME ON I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!! Book three is going to have you turning every page until you get to the end just to be pissed that you have to wait till the next ones releases... or wait.... maybe that's me, na can't just be me
This is my favorite book of the series to date. I read this during the COVID pandemic and I kept relating the monsters to the virus as they kept recreating and coming on strong. I absolutely couldn't put this book down. It is hard to believe that two writers have shared this creation since the writing is so seamless and so imaginative. It is hard for me to find a sci-fi that I adore from the plot to the characters to the outcome but this one is a slam dunk. I am particularly fond of how the authors grab the attention of the reader by the different styles of writing (some in the heads of the characters, some in interviews to plant a seed, some in timed thought processes). It is very clever. WOW!
Having completed the third book, CBD, I am convinced that the more creative scientists become, the more horrific their efforts may yield. I could say the same about the authors of this series. Foster and Woodward have taken horror to a new level. Only in the game Doom, have I ever encountered any creatures that come close to those portrayed in this series. I am looking forward to the next book, Night Terrors. Until then, I'm going to try to sleep (?)
