Editorial Reviews

Red, Red Reader Reviews, July 4, 2012 - "Red" "Red"
Orb was a surprising find and although I'm more of a Star Wars-sci fi girl, I enjoyed it. This book is good for anyone who wants to learn about the human mind and the limitations we set. I would recommend this more for adults or any young reader interested in a more thought-provoking work."
SFRevu: November 2012 - April Disney
"Orb is highly satisfying for a first novel. The scientific questions raised are not cliché and the author deals with them in a mature but entertaining manner. Recommended for anyone with a thirst for good character study or deeply speculative science fiction."
Midwest Book Review: March 2012 - Helen Dumont
"A story of close quarters and the psyche, "Orb" is an intriguing pick for those who like science fiction with a psychological edge."
