Book Review of Warpworld by Kristene Perron and Joshua Simpson

Once again we are pleased to host a Tribute Books blog tour. Please welcome Kristene Perron and Joshua Simpson as we take an inside look at their novel Warpworld.

Warpworld Book Summary:

How far would you go…

On his first crossing through the warps, Seg discovers a world rich in vita – fuel to save his dying world. Cold, brilliant and desperate to prove himself as a Cultural Theorist, Seg breaks away from the recon squad sent to protect him, to scout out prime vita sources. But to find his prize he must face his biggest fear: water.

Fiery and headstrong, Ama receives an ultimatum from her people’s tyrannical overlords: betray her own kind or give up the boat she calls home, forever.  When a wealthy traveler hires her as a guide, Ama thinks her prayers are answered – until a violent murder reveals Seg’s true identity.

On the run, over land and water, hunted by a ruthless and relentless tracker, and caught in the schemes of a political powerhouse, Seg and Ama will have to strike an uneasy truce to survive.

The fate of two worlds is in their hands.

Kristene Perron's Bio: 

Kristene is a former professional stunt performer for film and television (as Kristene Kenward) and self-described ‘fishing goddess’. Pathologically nomadic, she has lived in Japan, Costa Rica, the Cook Islands, and a very tiny key in the Bahamas, just to name a few. Her stories have appeared in Denizens of Darkness, Canadian Storyteller Magazine, The Barbaric Yawp and Hemispheres Magazine. In 2010 she won the Surrey International Writers’ Conference Storyteller Award.
Kristene is a member of  SF Canada. Her novel Warpworld is the first in a five-book adventure science fiction series, penned with her Texan co-writer Joshua Simpson.

She currently resides in Nelson, BC, Canada, but her suitcase is always packed.

Joshua Simpson's Bio:

A career nomad, Josh Simpson has driven trucks through the lower
forty-eight states, treated and disposed of hazardous waste, mixed mud as a stonemasonry laborer, failed abysmally in marketing, gotten on people's nerves as a safety man, and presently gets on their nerves even more using nerve release techniques in musculo-skeletal pain relief. 

He lives amidst the scrub and mesquite of West Texas, cohabiting with the writer's requisite minimum of two cats. Warpworld is his first published novel. 

Our Review of Warpworld 

Kristine Perron and Joshua Simpson have undertaken the co-authoring of a five-book adventure science fiction series. They are off to a good start. The co-authors have created two very engaging main characters in Seg and Ama. Their relationship develops slowly and carefully as their individual weaknesses find support in the strengths of the other. 

Additionally, the two worlds in which the action unfolds are convincingly drawn, the supporting characters are interesting and amusing, and the level of detail is just right to bring the whole thing off in a fun, entertaining read. 

Congratulations on your first novel in what promises to be an interesting series. Fans will be waiting anxiously for the next installment of the adventures of Seg and Ama, to be sure!
