    1. I really enjoyed this. It's rare that a science fiction book features a singular female protagonist but one who's competent and doesn't need to be saved is something I appreciate. All of this wrapped up in a geeks delight of AI, nanotech and a race to save the world made for a brilliant read.

    2. Imagine a world where the richest of the rich have bought all governments and now have total control of the entire planet, its resources, and beyond into the Solar System. These wealthy, all families of the globe’s top multinational corporations, have access to nanotechnology to create or recreate themselves and their children, to heal their ills or wounds; internal AI’s give them 24/7 access to news, data, or any other information, through “the Cloud” without having to lift a fingertip.

    3. No! No! No!!! You can't do this to me!!!! Firstly I would like to thank the author for the reader's copy in exchange for an honest review.So, I got a free copy of this book and I started reading it immediately. But I couldn't quite get into it the first time. After a couple of weeks I tried reading it and this time I got around to actually reading it. The beginning was a little confusing to me and most of the terms bounced off my head but as I kept gettig into the story, I couldn't put the book [...]

    4. Helena is a tall, elfin beautiful. She draws eyes to herself but none meet her eye. She has intelligence, wealth, power, emotional control and enhanced abilities. Barring accidents, she is almost immortal. She is from one of the leading Oligarch families and has been working as a negotiator for the Euros when unexpectedly tasked with finding the mysterious Boy, who, she is told, can alone prevent the war initiated by the rival corporation, the Indexiv, and perhaps stop the genocide of the Normal [...]

    5. Imagine if the current ultra rich among us, the famed 1% managed to develop and utilize technology to enhance their biology giving them god-like qualities and life spans that boggled the imagination? Welcome to the world of "A Family War." In the novel, business rules the world and these new, nano-machine enhanced Oligarchs rule business; "normals" are still identified as either middle class or lower - you can tell by the grade of physical or mental enhancements they have as to which class they [...]

    6. Book Review originally published here: iheartreading/book-tou In A Family War, a group of elites have found a way to enhance their genes by incorporating technology into their bodies, making them live for far longer, and making them far stronger than ordinary people. They’re called the Oligarchs, and they rule the world of business, and as such the world. The world has stumbled back into a class-system, with people who have had no enhancements belonging to the lowest class, and being responsib [...]

    8. One of the most exciting science fiction books I have read in a long time. The story is wonderful and exciting. It had me from the first chapter to the ending page. As our technology today is growing this book makes you think about what will happen with future breakthroughs and how will they be used. The characters are great and you really feel for them and the situations they are in. Looking for your next book to read? Look no further! I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest re [...]

    9. This book is was outside my genre preference, but I liked it a lot.Things I enjoyed:* strong female protagonist, easy to empathise with without her being weak or fluffy* setting explained enough to make sense, without over explanation which could have seemed condescending to the reader* lovely use of language* fast paced with lots of action* interesting plot twists and turnsI look forward to the next book in the series.

    10. This was an interesting read. For me Science Fiction can go two ways - tech heavy (which usually turns me away) or tech light (which I tend to quite enjoy). Thankfully, although there is a good bit of future technology in 'A Family War' it is not at the expense of a story well told. The set up is a future Earth where business rules and the technologically enhanced Oligarchs are the top of the tree. The Oligarchs are scientifically enhanced humans with almost Godlike powers and our heroine, Helen [...]

    11. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, from start to finish.The bleak and soulless image Hotston paints of the future is both scary and entirely imaginable. The extremity of it all however, keeps the book entertaining and just this side of depressing! For me, a lot of the book stands out as metaphor for what could happen should inequalities, both social and economic, be accepted and embraced. All of this brilliantly illustrated with the extreme events occurring within the story.The world is richly fles [...]

    12. I'm not sure how I felt about this book. The story line was interesting, the characters were fleshed out but it just felt like the writer was more concerned about all the technology and not the story. Even though there was a lot of action and fighting, it seemed like the story really dragged at points. If you know me, you know I HATE Cliffhangers. and guess what, cliffhanger! I was hoping that a book as long as this one would end in some kind of conclusion to the story. But no, it ends at a rand [...]

    13. An exciting and gripping tale, A family War leaves the reader wanting more. The novel takes a new twist on the usual Sci-Fi genre and keeps you engaged throughout. Beautifully written with an excellent narrative.

    14. A Family War is a book that not only pulls you into a war that has the potential to be literally world-changing, but which utilises technology which can only be imagined right now. A scientist, Hotston not only writes intelligently, but with a keenness that shows every bit of technology in the book has been carefully thought through rather than just slapped onto a page because it's cool. As a result of this approach, I truly believe that Hotston is King of Nanopunk.

    15. I couldn't stop reading this book. I relish finding Sci Fi with solid and capable female protagonists. Not only did I find her in this novel, but she is also a complicated character. The story line is solid and true to good Sci-Fi, the future is plausible because, no matter how "enhanced" humanity gets, human nature remains the same.

    16. A Family War is, I believe, a debut novel by Stewart Hotston. If that's the case, I can only assume he has a few unpublished try-outs in a desk drawer somewhere, because this is an assured, polished book with none of the "kitchen sink" approach that characterises many first-time novelists.Set in a future that I think is just a few centuries hence, but which might as well be millennia, A Family War follows the adventures of Lady Helena Woolf, immortal corporate diplomat.Woolf is quickly thrown in [...]
