Review: Conviction by S Usher Evans

Conviction by S. Usher Evans Series: Razia #3 Published by Sun’s Golden Ray Publishing on January 1st 1970 Genres: Sci Fi, Young Adult Pages: 242 Buy on Amazon Clink. Razia is in trouble. Captured by a fellow pirate, she now finds herself back on probation with a bounty worth zero credits. In the cold reality, she begins to question herself and everything she has been working towards all of her life–and what she’s willing to do to reclaim her glory. Conviction is the third book in the Razia series. Piracy is a game. What do you stand for? I thought about just leaving this picture but I guess I owe you a little more about this book than just that. In my review of Double Life, I talked about how I liked the story, but I wished that Razia was…. more. I want her to be kinder, more understanding, more mature. I struggled with her maturity level because I could see the person that she could be. If only she would calm down and stop jumping to conclusions all the time. I liked Alliances too. There I revealed my everlasting love for Sage Teon and Lizbeth. The two of them are a formidable team when it comes to annoying Razia as well as keeping her out of trouble as much as possible. In Alliances she had grown a little but […]

Review: Alliances by S Usher Evans

Review: Alliances by S Usher Evans

Alliances (Razia, #2) by S. Usher Evans Series: Razia #2 Published by Sun’s Golden Ray Publishing on March 10th 2015 Genres: Sci Fi, Young Adult Pages: 259 Format: Paperback Buy on Amazon Piracy is a game. Whom do you trust? Lyssa Peate has found a tenuous balance between her double lives – the planet-discovering scientist and space pirate bounty hunter named Razia. No longer on probation, Razia still struggles to be thought of as more than a chocolate-fetching joke, and Lyssa canÂ’t be truthful to those closest to her. But both lives are turned upside-down when feisty government investigator Lizbeth Carter shows up to capture the same pirate Razia is after. LizbethÂ’s not interested in taking RaziaÂ’s thunder; rather, she convinces the caustic bounty hunter to help solve a mystery. SomebodyÂ’s hiring pirates to target government ships, and thereÂ’s a money trail that doesnÂ’t make any sense. From the desert planet of D-882 to the capital city on S-864, the investigation leads them deeper into a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of the Universal Government – and to one of the most painful chapters in LyssaÂ’s past. Alliances is the highly anticipated sequel to Double Life, Book 1 in the Razia Series. Alliances is the continuation of Razia’s story and it picks up right after Double Life.  When this book starts out, she is struggling with the […]

Review: Double Life by S. Usher Evans

Review: Double Life by S. Usher Evans

Double Life by S. Usher Evans Series: Razia #1 Published by S. Usher Evans on June 12th 2014 Genres: Sci Fi, Young Adult Pages: 244 Format: ebook Buy on Amazon Piracy is a game. How much are you worth? Since she was a little girl, everyone – from her father to the Great Creator himself – told Lyssa Peate the same thing: she’s worthless. But when she becomes the pirate bounty hunter Razia, she can see the price tag on her own head. Employed by one of the four pirate syndicates, she uses bank transactions and her considerable wits to capture rival members. At least, she would be if Razia’s boss ever gave her a chance. It’s a manÂ’s world, and all sheÂ’s allowed to hunt are purse snatchers while she languishes on probation. To pay the bills, she’s stuck in her old life as Lyssa, discovering and analyzing distant planets and selling them for cash. She’s doing just enough to stay out of trouble, pretending to be continuing her father’s mysterious research while away for long periods of time. Her slimy boss is always asking questions and even assigns one of her younger brothers, Vel, to intern with her. Already struggling to keep the balance between her double lives, she tries everything to rid herself of the kid… …until the universal police mistake LyssaÂ’s intern for Razia’s hostage. […]

Awesome Indies: Empath by S. Usher Evans

Awesome Indies: Empath by S. Usher Evans

For more information, check out the Awesome Indies page I’m so excited to have S. Usher Evans here today to talk about how she finally started writing her ideas down. She also talks about Razia, which is her series about a space pirate. Since she didn’t mention it, I also want to make sure you know about Empath, a fantasy novel. S. Usher Evans Thanks so much to Emily for letting me hang out today! I’m so excited to talk about something that I’ve been wrestling with for a few weeks now – the idea of finally putting pen to paper when you’ve been dreaming about it for decades. My true “novel writing” career began around aged eleven, thanks to some awful middle school bullying and such, I began to disappear into my headspace as a coping mechanism. During the three years at Gulf Breeze Middle, I wrote something like ten different series, all terrible and 90% dialogue. But those characters stuck with me and became my closest friends. Razia, my space opera series, was the last kid to the party, showing up in 2001. I probably wrote and rewrote Double Life eight or nine times between 2001 until 2007, when I graduated college and became an “Adult.” Even though I stuck all my creative stuff on the back burner, sometimes I’d listen to songs that would kickstart the […]
