      I got caught up in this fast moving, entertaining, and action-packed novella. Both the human characters and the hybrid android ones were interesting and I loved the surprise twist.I enjoyed the short bonus stories at the end of the book.The first one was interesting and explained the origins of two of the characters from the previous tale. The second takes place after Dry Land and is a humorous snippet of life for the same two characters.

      This was an interesting Sci-Fi book, I was fascinated by the thought of terraforming the Moon. Based on the outcome, I'm hoping this isn't one of those stories that is more fact than fiction in a couple hundred years!The characters were well presented and believable, both the human and hybrid kind, and the story follows a steady path through a variety of twists and turns.Over all this is a good little read to while away a quiet evening.

    3. Amy on said:

      Well written sci-fi adventure that keeps you turning the pages. Great dialogue and detail put you into the drama of a complex NASA mission gone wrong. The two additional short stories, "Quickening" and "Use Your Words," bring even more humanity to the characters you've come to know and root for in the original novella. Loved it!

      Loved the plot and interesting hybrid android mix. This was an enjoyable quick read (or listen in my case)

      Actual Rating: 4.5 StarsSoundtrack: Moondust by Jaymes Young"I wrapped my arms about her, digging my fingers into the muscles of her back, gripping her to me as if she were my air, my sustenance, as if my entire life depended upon her. I moaned, deep and sorrowful, mournful yet thankful. "Colby.""Make love to me, Ted, one last time," she purred, "and that's an order, flyboy.""Yes, ma'am."For my good friend Jenn, who I admire and respect so much.When I first started this, I was intimidated by the [...]

      This is a novella containing 3 short stories encompassing various parts of the same tale. The first is an interesting and somewhat confusing tale in which a group of scientists, prompted by America and NASA are sent up to the moon to terraform it. It's a fun and action packed read but, if you only like your science-fiction stories that are heavy on the science, this probably isn't a yarn for you. During the first 10 minutes of the moon being terraformed (and somehow given extra gravity?!) Earth [...]

      I actually listened to Dry Land on Audible. I'm fairly picky about narrators and didn't mind this guy's voice. He did great on the accents and if he sounded very much like Carey Elwes in my head, well, that's my deal, eh? Dry Land is a tale about an astronaut named Ted "Shakespeare" Hardiston (Remember, I listened to this, so I'm guessing on name spellings,) going on a mission to the moon to introduce an artificial atmosphere. He is working with several other folks, an American astronaut Daniel [...]

      I was given a free audible edition of this book in exchange for an honest review.First of all, I have to say that Ian Sorensen did an amazing job as narrator on this book. When I looked him up I was shocked to find only one other book on audible narrated by him. I hope he has projects in the works because I am considering reading that other book for no other reason than because he is the narrator and a narrator makes or breaks the book.Now on to the book- What a brilliant imagination Jennifer Se [...]

      Welcome to the late 22nd century where nations as we know them are truly changed, and AI has been incredibly advanced. There is work to be done to make the moon habitable, and Ted is one of the select who is capable. First, he must divorce his wife to save her from problems if he is lost to space. Not an auspicious start. But things get better, more complicated, worse, and then just plain bizarre. Do not expect spoilers. This book, while way too short, is too good for you to miss the author's br [...]

      Good quick read leaves you wanting more, then gives it.I enjoyed this offering. It said all it needed to quickly but with thoughtfulness. The viewpoint from cyborg hybrids was done well, and the legislative explanation for equality a good addition considering current social conditions. I especially liked the way the author portrayed the possible future of America considering current political directions.I skimmed the sex scenes although I recognize their valuable relevance to the story. I also e [...]

      *I received this in exchange for an honest reviewThis type of book was sort of new for me…the Artificial Intelligence/Robotic type of character, but I found that I enjoyed it. Having some of the characters having that type of characteristics, thrown in with regular humans, and trying to find a way of expansion for Earth on the Moon. Now we all know that the Moon is so extremely important to the balance of the oceans, but obviously not all of the characters take this into consideration in this [...]

      Space themes in literature are usually a turn off for me, but I’m so glad I didn’t lump this one under that category. Shakespeare in space is sublime.I was very caught up in the story, it is superbly written and the sharp plot is spun out just right at a satisfyingly quick pace. It isn’t so quick that you don’t connect with the characters though, they had me along for the ride through every plot twist. I didn’t want it to end and I loved that there were two short stories that gave me a [...]

      I love this story. I will admit that I am not usually one for straight sci-fi; I tend towards the sci-fi/fantasy mix or just fantasy. But this story immediately sucked me in. The characters are engaging from the very first moment and the story is captivating. Human hybrids, world destruction, romance, mystery, drama, all wrapped up in a marvelously told tale. One I will definitely be reading over and over again.

    17. Lisa Nash on said:

      I've been a long-time fan of Jenn's work and Dry Land is no exception. She is very creative in the way she uses the SciFi genre -- it is integral to the story, and yet the story is more than just mechanical, futuristic musings. It's SciFi with soul, and more than a little sexy, too. Great read for a Sunday afternoon. Give it a try!

    18. George Stewart on said:

      First story ok second terribleThe first story had some new Sci-Fi twists. It is well written with a good plot line and the ending was not the usual. They should have stopped there and not had second short story that was a terrible read.

    19. M.A. Ray on said:

      This was smart, sexy, and fast. The ideas here could've supported a longer book, I think, but definitely enjoyable and interesting as it was. I recommend it if you'd like something different in your day.

      ImaginativeI had been away from Sci Fi for a minute. This book was an easy Transition back into the genre. Great, somewhat steamy, storyline.

      My original Dry Land audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.In the not-too-distant future, the United States is in decline. NASA is barely functioning and in need of international help to get grand ideas like colonizing the moon accomplished. A small group of humans give up their lives on earth to start the process of readying the moon with gravity and atmosphere. They are accompanied by one android on their journey and others waiting for them on the moon. Androids a [...]
