A Sort of Justice by P. E. Sibley
This was a terrific novel! As a big fan of a variety of genres, this book gave me everything I was hoping for and more with its elements of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, and action/adventure. The plotline was great, the writing and editing were truly well done, the sci-fi details were creative and plausible, and the characters were well developed and realistic. Main characters Mark Praed and Alexandra Lansing are people that you just can’t help but grow fond of and root for; I can’t wait to see what happens next for them. Author P.E. Sibley is a very gifted and talented storyteller and writer. A Sort of Justice is one of the best books I’ve read, either traditional or indie published. I am really looking forward to reading future books in this Mark Praed series, as well as other books by this author.

In my earlier years, I read every Sci-fi novel I could get my hands on. I then wandered off to other genres. It has been awhile since I have read one and I found “A Sort of Justice” to be refreshing and interesting. In fact, it sucked me in immediately. I enjoyed the slow reveal of Mark Praed and his abilities. Alex made the perfect counter balance as an energetic, curious, smart new partner.

The blending of earth and alien cultures and sci-fi ‘speak’ was easy to follow. The writer built a wonderful, intelligent and entertaining combination of government intrigue, cultural differences and action. From the beginning I was curious and couldn’t put it down until I figured out where it was all going to end. Wonderful characterization, just the right amount of suspense, detective work, plot development and plain, good old fashioned story telling. I consider this as good as any Heinlein I ever read. I can’t wait to buy the others and continue this adventure.

Very well written, and for an indie writer, nicely edited and easy to read. I highly recommend this book to any who like the Sci-fi genre.


More Than Just Science Fiction

A Sort of Justice: A Mark Praed Novel, Book 1 by P E Sibley is a science fiction mystery and thriller. While science fiction isn’t what I usually pick up to read first, I couldn’t help but be impressed by not only the writing style but how well it flowed.

What this means to me as a reader is that I no longer cared what genre it was and was immersed in the story instead of focusing on a particular genre. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ll read any genre if the story itself interests me and that is what this did.

This is a story about Mark Praed who is a half-human and an agent at the CIS which is the Commonwealth Intelligence Service. There is intrigue, betrayal, action, and of course, science fiction. If you love sci-fi or just love a well-written book about intrigue then this is definitely for you.

This is well written and highly enjoyable science fiction. I really enjoyed the team of Alex and Mark and watching their relationship develop. This book is the first in a series and it is off to a wonderful start. The author writes dialogue that is realistic and natural and her writing style is clean and efficient. The action moves along nicely and is easy to follow. Every reader has their own preferences, but I would have appreciated a little more descriptive detail. Also, I’m not sure if it was an isolated problem, but the chapter breaks were not working on my Kindle. The characters are ones I’ll want to revisit again, so I’ll be checking out the next book in the series.

From the first page to the last I was enthralled by the adventures and misadventures of Mark Praed. I had to read the whole book in one sitting before being able to put it down. I had to do the same with each as soon as the succeeding two books were available. The vivid imagery, depth of character development and plot twists keep the reader glued to the story. Highly recommended reading.

A Sort of Justice by P. E. Sibley is a Science Fiction detective novel set in a time where space travel is a reality and not only are aliens real, but there are now half human half aliens. One such person is our protagonist Mark Praed. Mark is member of the Commonwealth Intelligence Service who transfers to the counterterrorist task force after being captured and tortured. In A Sort of Justice Mark and his new partner Alexandra Lansing are sent on a covert mission to test out their new partnership but are unsure if they can trust each other.
A Sort of Justice is the perfect mixture of Science Fiction and Mystery and I for one absolutely loved it. Sibley divulged new information at just the right pace to keep things interesting, Mark and Alex were extremely likable characters and I cannot wait to read more.

I enjoy sci-fi books as well as the mystery/detective genre so this book was a really nice combination of both. The author does a very good job of keeping the pace moving smoothly. I read almost half the book in my first sitting without realizing just how much I had read, which is always a good sign. I would definitely recommend this book and I am looking forward to the future Mark Praed novels.
