LEX TALIONIS by R. S. A. Garcia reviewed by Caribbean Beat Magazine

COVER (2)

“Written with an arsenal of tension-building armaments, and wearing all the hallmarks of a science fiction thriller that’s done its worldbuilding homework, Garcia’s first novel leaves readers eagerly anticipating a sequel. Lex Talionis sings a bloody song of both forgetting and redemption, and of the price we pay for a little tenderness, when least we expect to be taxed for our freedoms.”

In addition to all the usual distribution channel, this book is now available for full distribution in all RIK Bookstores in Trinidad.

LEX TALIONIS by R. S. A. Garcia: Nebula weekend, giveaway, and media round-up

COVER

Click on the cover to enter a Goodreads giveaway for 5 print copies of this stunning debut novel by a Caribbean science fiction author. The giveaway will be open until the release day on May 30, 2014.

R. S. A. Garcia’s science fiction thriller is receiving a great response from readers and early reviewers, in the wake of the starred review from Publishers Weekly that came out earlier this month. Here is what the reviewers say about the book:

—————————

“The setting is handled in an effortless way that makes aliens and advanced technology feel commonplace. Artificial breeding, interplanetary settlement, and political rebellion are just a few of the concepts that Garcia infuses with ethical tensions and deep personal emotion in this intense and intriguing work.” — Publishers Weekly

A tense, morally complex science fiction thriller that tackles hard questions of loyalty, exploitation, and human decency without compromising on plot.— Elizabeth Bear

I could not put the book down and stayed up all hours reading.— Angela Street

Wow. WOW.” — Kate McNeil

This is a very complex book with many different aspects and if you can follow along without getting lost it is very much worth the read. The story ends, yes, but it does leave it open for more and I hope their are more books coming. — Hannah

An exciting and thought-provoking story! I hope it is the beginning of a series.” — Jay Williams

A compelling, thought-provoking novel. R.S.A. Garcia is an author to watch!” — Analouise Keating

the story was entirely compelling, I couldn’t put it down and when it came to the end, I read and re-read the last chapters wishing it weren’t over and trying to eek every last nuance out of it.— Erin Burns

I had some preconceived notions about this novel as the author is new and the publisher fairly unknown. What surprised me was how much I enjoyed everything about this novel. The characters were very well developed within the movement of the story-line. I really liked Troi and Chris even though they had minimal appearances. The world building is splendid in that you get a sense of the alien/human interaction that promises a truly unique experience.— Koeur

“R.S.A. Garcia is good at tense moments that hook the reader…  The way the scenes flowed together was flawless and enthralling.” — Beverly

Worth a look at.— Jaiw
