    1. Sci-fi novel available from Riptide Publishing.

    2. 5 mindfucking stars!!!This book was awesome, but if you're looking for a romance story in the traditional sense you're going to be disappointed. There is a story about love but not necessarily between the main characters, although we do have sort of a relationship developing between them as well. Any romance in this book is secondary and nicely woven around the main idea: Fighting to protect the Earth against an alien species that seems intent on destroying us. But is it really? What exactly is [...]

    3. This story IS IDIOTIC!!!!!!!!! The main story-plot is OMG, just pathetic. About romance, hm, I would ask, is there even a romance in it? Heck NO! Oh and don't let me start about the ending, REALLY, what a Happy bullshit.

    4. A good science-fiction story with a frisson of romance. I like a good science fiction story but not those that overflow with complex world building. This story manages to be both engaging and enjoyable sci-fi so that even if the reader is not a sci-fi fan they would still enjoy it. For sci-fi fans it ticks all the sci-fi boxes and it also has romantic themes as well but the romance is not really the story. The war is the story.The world building is excellent. We have planet Earth which is under [...]

    5. ****Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance®****4.25 Stars - Tide of War was a stellar sci-fi novel, although it did have a few flaws. The narrative was smooth and the action was fast paced, but the romance was a little rough and the female characters, though strong and kick ass, were treated poorly in the end.From the beginning I had a sense that all was not right with the way things were, and I questioned myself several times as to whether I was paranoid or looking into things. However, I was right [...]

    6. Set in the not so distant future the Fleet Fighters and the Elite Squadron are protecting Earth from an attacking alien force. While the aliens seem to not be interested in taking over territory on Earth the Menarian’s are certainly interested in damaging as much of the planet as possible. Earth’s retaliation has sent their best fighter pilots and gunners to Epsilon Station, a station that is orbiting Menar. These Elite fighters are taking the fight to their enemy. Sadly as the long years of [...]

    7. I liked the sci-fi aspect and the story twist took my breath away!!!------But the romance (if you can even call it that) well I think the story would have been better off without it.Andrei Dezhnyov (he is bi) has a wonderful relationship with his wife and she of all things encourages him to take male lovers? Kyle West is married to a lesbian and secretly gay. After the death of his lover and his son he starts an affair with Andrei and their wives know about it and encourage them. Well 3 stars f [...]

    8. A review by The Blogger Girls.I am not generally into sci-fi stories, but this was Ms. Witt, so I had to give it a go. It was quite different than what I expected which made it interesting and rather unique. It was like Top Gun in space with a few extras thrown in.So, there is a war going on between Earth and an alien race called the Menarians. There are fighters on Earth protecting from below, and fighters from above (the Elite force located on the battle station Epsilon). The first thing that [...]

    9. This is masterfully crafted, in a way old school, science fiction like only Lori Witt can deliver.The world building is excellent, perhaps in a Wag the Dog way. The character development is phenomenal and our two MCs, Kyle West and Andrei Dezhnyov are so well written that you actually feel their their pain and angst form losing their loved ones.This book comes off so well, with not contrived angles. Top notch science fiction.

    10. I am usually a contemporary romance reader. I hardly ever touch science fiction at all. However, I do enjoy the genre from time to time when I feel that the characters are interesting and the plot grabs my attention.So it is a huge surprise for me that one of my top 10 books of 2015 is this sci-fi novel!!What is so great about this book? Hell, if I were a Hollywood producer, I’d throw millions at this script to turn it into a movie. Even if the m/m romance characters are probably not mainstrea [...]

    11. Wow. This may have been a longer than usual ride as far as length of story, but it was well worth it. All I can say was that the world-building was fantastic and believable, and the supporting characters got under my skin and into my heart.I did not know what to think when the initial way the relationships were portrayed in this story made me question the moral character of the MCs.But. Then. I just got it. It made for a much deeper level of empathy, understanding, and friendship that I didn't e [...]

    12. I'm not exactly sure how to review this I've honestly started it three times at least. You're just going to have to forgive me for being vague. Without giving anything major away, there's just no other way to review The Tide of War, so here it goesThis is a book of love, loss and betrayal but not in the conventional sense. Honestly, romance takes a back seat to the real story, but it's still an integral part of what happens. The twists and turns, hints of what's really going on and several momen [...]

    13. 3.5 stars. Serviceable story that gets a boost from an excellent twist. Oddly enough considering the author and publisher, I think this would have been better without the romance. It was clunky and distracted from the sci-fi plot.Thanks to Riptide and NetGalley for providing me with an advance copy.

    15. This is one of those ho-hum, 'it was ok' kind of books. The writing was fine, the editing was fine, the dialogue was fine. There wasn't a lot of sex, but it was fine. Nothing in the book blew my mind, but I didn't hate it either.Unfortunately, as much as I love me some M/M loving, I thought the book would have been stronger without it. Which is unfortunate, because the aspect of the book I appreciated most was that both men had serviceable, happy marriages that still accommodated their sexuality [...]

    16. I was really attached to the group dynamic between four of the principal characters, I really did not take keen on the death of all and only female characters of the book to only advance the storyline of the male protagonists. I have the feeling that in the end the author didn't stay true to the personality of the characters they created themselves. I am myself in a Poly group and just went through a heartbreak. Andrei's despair is not half what it should have been and Emily's death was POINTLES [...]

    17. OMG!! I'm a sucker for a good sci-fi that's light on the sci and heavy on the fi Oh how this fit the bill I wouldn't exactly call this a romance but there was lots of honest to goodness love involved, with some tastefully understated sex. There was great intrigue, lots of adventure, plenty of action, a giant conspiracy, loss & despair, and a great big surprise. The ending could have been a bit better but if a series is coming I'd read the next book.

    18. One pretty twisted book, nothing warm or cuddly here. I'm intrigued with what might be in a follow up book?

    19. This is more like a 3.5 star rounded up. First up this isn't a romance book. It would have been better with the romance aspects a little more muted and sold as a straight up military science fiction book. It even fails at the m/m labeling in that Andrei is bi and in a open relationship with his wife that he loves very much. The relationship between Andrei and Kyle felt like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. It was clunky and needless deaths happened to fit them together for a quick rid [...]

    22. Anybody who has read my reviews before knows how much I love it when an author manages to surprise me. To say The Tide of War managed to amaze me would be an understatement. I knew I wasn’t about to start reading a typical m/m romance when I first opened this book, but little did I realize I was about to lose myself in a tale that would break my heart, make me angry, scare me and leave me with rather big and disturbing issues to think about. And while all of that happened, I also fell in love [...]

    23. Dystopian sci-fi plot at its finest! 4,5 holy-shit-I-didn't-expect-to-like-this-book-so-much stars for this wonderful piece of workOkay, first of all I love the references the book kind of starts with combined with what we know from the synopsis.

    24. I knew it! I freaking knew it! And I can’t even say what I knew because it’s a complete spoiler. But the best part is that it wasn’t a foregone conclusion or the obvious direction of the book. In all actuality, the main reason I figured it out was because The Tide of War is the type of sci-fi romance that brings out my un-nurtured, hiding-in-a-corner in the depths of my mind conspiracy theorist. I am not a conspiracy theorist in my day-to-day life and yet at 31% in a directive is given tha [...]

    25. 4 Heart Review by SheenaIt’s not often I read a book by a veteran author and put it down feeling so very conflicted. Lori A. Witt, or L.A. Witt, or Lauren Gallagher, or any of her other numerous aliases, is a fantastic, skilled, and masterful author who churns out novels faster than people can read them. While rarely do I come across a book of hers that I didn’t enjoy (in fact, it has never happened to date), this time, with The Tide of War, Ms. Witt left me in a shaking, wretched, angry, gr [...]

    26. On the surface, the idea of the story is somewhat similar to Starship Troopers: aliens attack Earth, Earth defends itself and tries to take the war to the aliens. After devastating events on Earth, L.C. Kyle West and his gunner, Cmdr. Emily Blaine, finally decide to leave Earth to go to the Epsilon station, near to the alien homeworld. It's voluntary service, and everyone knows its a one-way trip, so no one goes unless they have nothing left to lose. Everyone has a story, and no one wants to tel [...]

Check out the full review on Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous.Note: This ARC was provided by Riptide Publishing in exchange for an honest review.The Tide of War is the first novel in the Defending Epsilon series by author Lori A. Witt. I only realized this was part of a series when I went on in order to snag the cover photo for my review. The book reads quite well as a standalone, so I'm curious to see as to what the next book will be about and if American pilot Kyle West and Russian gunner Andrei [...]

    28. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/The Tide of War is a book about different relationships, loss, and the things that keep people going. Author Witt sets up strong family groups only to break them down one by one with devastating results. The focus is on life and loss - not romance, sex, or even sci fi. Story: The Earth is under attack by an alien species with whom no contact has been possible. The 'why' of the attacks isn't even known - only that humans have focused [...]

    29. A Joyfully Jay review. 4.75 starsThis story was fascinating and sucked me right in from the start. There is this horrible alien force wreaking havoc and destroying Earth. The fear, worry, and tension just leaps off the page and settled right into my gut. I was on the edge of my proverbial seat and the world was laid out before me, intricately built and wonderfully described. It’s the not too distant future, and a lot of the world has a familiar feel. But there are so many advancements in techn [...]

    30. The Tide of War is a unique take on the standard military science fiction novel, stepping into the growing genre of LGBT science fiction without slapping you across the face with the rainbow hammer (patent pending). The LGBT aspects are kept subtle enough to make it all seem normal without losing the substantial impact having such LGBTQ normalcy within a futuristic Earth setting provides. Aside from the LGBT aspect (which is refreshing), the core of the book is military science fiction with roma [...]
