Rosie Black’s last stand

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

Dark Star, the third and final book in The Rosie Black Chronicles by Lara Morgan, came out last year. I read it then and have been avoiding the review ever since. I hate it when a book fails to meet my expectations, especially when it is still a good book. It leaves me floundering when […]

FIVE HUNDRED YEARS INTO THE FUTURE the world is a different place. The Melt has sunk most of the coastal cities and Newperth is divided into the haves, the ‘Centrals’; the have-nots, the Bankers; and the fringe dwellers, the ‘Ferals’. Rosie Black is a courageous but vulnerable 16 year-old who lives in a futuristic world […]

Last chance to WIN WIN WIN!

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Black, Rosie Black! Remember her? Two books so far. The latest is Equinox, which I reviewed a few posts back (see “Reviewing Rosie Black”). And I also interviewed the author, Lara Morgan (see “The marketing of Lara Morgan”). Did my posts interest you in the book? Are you desperate to get your hands on a […]

Reviewing Rosie Black

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

In December last year, I read and reviewed Genesis, the first book in The Rosie Black Chronicles (see “The Rosie Black Chronicles”). I found it to be a good read, but lacking a certain spark. I concluded that I would happily read the second book, but that I wouldn’t go out of my way to […]

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

In December 2010 I reviewed Genesis, the first book in the Lara Morgan’s YA, dystopian, science fiction, adventure series, The Rosie Black Chronicles. (Check out the review.) Well, Rosie Black is back! The second book, Equinox, is out this month. Lara Morgan is off on a blog tour to promote the new release, and she’ll […]

Waiting for the end of the series

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

I’ve always had this philosophy regarding any series of books — I would never start to read the first book until the final one had been published. That way, I would not have to wait the twelve plus months between books — the twelve plus months during which I would forget vital plot points and […]

The Rosie Black Chronicles

Monday, December 20th, 2010

A little while ago a book with an extremely stylish cover landed on my desk — Genesis, Book 1 in the Rosie Black Chronicles, by Lara Morgan (author of The Twins of Saranthium books — Awakening and Betrayal). It’s a YA, somewhat dystopian spec fic epic that will soon be continued in Equinox. It is […]

Who Is Rosie Black?

Monday, October 11th, 2010

Recently, I caught up with WA author Lara Morgan, creator of the action-packed new YA futuristic fantasy series, The Rosie Black Chronicles set in Perth 500 years into the future. (First book Genesis came out this month). Lara was in Melbourne for WorldCon and apart from writing, we chatted for a long time about the […]
