Review by Ida Vega-Landow
This is the second ebook I've reviewed for Torquere Press and I have to admit that I'm a little disappointed. You would think that as a fan of Star Trek slash fiction, I would be in my element reading a gay romance set in a futuristic sci-fi universe. Unfortunately, Drew Zachary's space opera hits only a few notes and makes no attempt to develop anything beyond the characters' relationship, which is purely sexual. In fact, this story comes very close to being a PWP (as in Plot? What Plot?). [more]

Review by Leigh Anne Wilson
So, this is Manga. I’ve heard of it, but I’ve never read it before, or even seen it, and didn’t know you read it back to front and right to left. But ignorance has never stopped me from doing anything before, so on with the review!
Sakura Taisen, or “Cherry Blossom War,” is a cute enough story, and seems aimed at the young teenage set. The scene is set in Tokyo, in 1921. Ensign Ogami, a young Navy man, is given what at first blush appears to be a demeaning, insulting assignment: he is relegated to a theatre, and forced to work as a ticket taker. Surrounded by spoiled young actresses all day, he grows increasingly grumpy, feeling like his talent as a soldier is being wasted. During his stay at the Grand Imperial Theatre, he notices that the young ladies, acting skills aside, not only seem to be proficient at weaponry, but occasionally show the ability for telekinesis as well. And there’s also the obligatory village getting attacked by monsters and giant robots, too. [more]
