This is a review of the Strange Worlds box. Both of this month’s selections are the first books in a series.
Superposition by David Walton
I’m halfway through this book, and I am loving it. The whole thing is quick, clever and unique. It inspired me to buy the book How to Teach your Dog Quantum Mechanics, so I could better understand the quantum world.
A QUANTUM PHYSICS MURDER MYSTERY.
A Mind-Bending, Near-Future, Science Fiction Technothriller.
Jacob Kelley’s family is turned upside down when an old friend turns up, waving a gun and babbling about an alien quantum intelligence. The mystery deepens when the friend is found dead in an underground bunker…apparently murdered the night he appeared at Jacob’s house. Jacob is arrested for the murder and put on trial.
As the details of the crime slowly come to light, the weave of reality becomes ever more tangled, twisted by a miraculous new technology and a quantum creature unconstrained by the normal limits of space and matter. With the help of his daughter, Alessandra, Jacob must find the true murderer before the creature destroys his family and everything he loves.
David Walton is a brand new name to me, and I’m excited to finish this book and read the next book in this series, Supersymmetry.
Twelve Kings in Sharakhai by Bradley Beaulieu
As soon as I finish Superposition, I’m starting this book. It gets wonderful reviews, and I am always up for a brand new epic fantasy world. Especially one with strong heroine.
The Song of the Shattered Sands: Book One
Sharakhai, the great city of the desert, center of commerce and culture, has been ruled from time immemorial by twelve kings — cruel, ruthless, powerful, and immortal. With their army of Silver Spears, their elite company of Blade Maidens and their holy defenders, the terrifying asirim, the Kings uphold their positions as undisputed, invincible lords of the desert. There is no hope of freedom for any under their rule.
Or so it seems, until Çeda, a brave young woman from the west end slums, defies the Kings’ laws by going outside on the holy night of Beht Zha’ir. What she learns that night sets her on a path that winds through both the terrible truths of the Kings’ mysterious history and the hidden riddles of her own heritage. Together, these secrets could finally break the iron grip of the Kings’ power…if the nigh-omnipotent Kings don’t find her first.
Amazon chose this book as one their best books of 2015 in the category of Science Fiction and Fantasy. Plus, there are two more books in the story, so I’m ready for autumn!
This was my favorite Bookcase.Club collection yet. I’m loving Superposition, and I am really excited to start Twelve Kings in Sharakhai. Bookcase.Club definitely pushes me out of my comfort zone, and for $15.00, I think it is a really good deal. If you want to check it out, use code Beeju15 to save 15% HERE.

I am a vegan, homeschooling mom who might be a tad obsessed with subscription boxes. My infatuation is evidenced by my uncanny ability to recognize the sound of my mail carrier’s truck engine. I’d like to say don’t judge me, but if I were you, I’d judge me. I love vegan/eco-friendly, literary and thoughtfully curated boxes.
