“Asylum” by Ashley Bazer


This book is published by an up-and-coming author from Westbow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson for independent and new authors. 

A science fiction novel of futuristic events, Ashley Bazer brings a fresh and unique voice to interspace travel and adventure. Straight from the publisher, Westbow would describe Bazer’s work with a twist of suspense:

When Chase’s wife, Trista, goes missing, he follows a trail that leads to imprisonment on a space-based facility for the insane. Chase leads a revolt against the doctors and takes control. Other circumstances bring Trista to the ship, but when she encounters Chase, she is different. She calls herself Krissa.

Bazer’s writing has received an average of four star reviews, and I agree with them. Her writing, as previously mentioned, is fresh and unique, and a welcome addition to the scifi space arena. Bazer’s writing is descriptive and guides the reader through the scenes. However, the descriptive wording comes at a fault of occasionally dragging out the tale. Overall, Bazer’s abilities as a novel writer are welcome and exciting, but not for my personal taste. Many may find The Circeae Tales an excellent and suspenseful thriller for their own reading pleasure, but for those who need a faster read, such as those like me who read before retiring, may need a quicker pace to keep their interest piqued.Disclosure: I have received a reviewer copy and/or payment in exchange for an honest review of the product mentioned in this post.
