“At once gritty and graphic, tender and heart wrenching, Razorblade Tears is the story of two fathers hardened by life circumstances and their respective prejudices who seek vengeance against those who killed their gay sons. The audio was perfection. We NEED this novel to be on the big screen, with Denzel Washington playing Ike. ”Jessica, Main Street Books Davidson
Local Woman Missing
“This domestic thriller has serious true crime vibes, introducing a cast of well-rounded characters (some of whom are, or were, missing women). Kubica crafts multiple strings of mystery and ties them up perfectly. I especially enjoyed the inclusion of a lesbian couple in the main cast, as the thriller genre rarely features queer people whose stories aren't directly related to their queerness. The first chapter will absolutely hook you and the following events will refuse to let you go.”Sam, Phoenix Books

“A prequel to Sea of Rust, Day Zero covers the classic sci-fi tale of robots versus humans with a heavy smattering of high-stakes action and drama. However, it’s the relationship between 8-year-old Ezra and his nanny bot named Pounce that kept me invested from start to finish. Given the choice to either massacre in the name of robot liberation, or to serve the purpose he was designed for, Pounce chooses the side that protects the child that he has essentially raised, all the while dealing with some moral and existential dilemmas. Is it programming that drives him, or love? We’re all familiar with the idea of “a boy and his dog” and how it conjures warm and lighthearted feelings, but after reading Day Zero, it’s the thought of a boy and his “tiger-nanny-robot” that will now forevermore give me the warm fuzzies. C. Robert Cargill’s Day Zero will be a forever book on my shelves.”Nicholas, Mysterious Galaxy Books
