Novel of the Year 2022 – RAQ by T.K. Toppin


From editor-in-chief Stef McDaid:

“I’m hellish difficult to satisfy in the literary sense but every now and then I find a book that resonates vibrantly enough for me to set it aside as a keeper – to be read again at a later date. RAQ by T.K. Toppin came out a clear winner of our multi-genre Captivating Opening Contest and continued to captivate me right until the very end.

It is my 2022 book of the year (trad-pub and/or indie) because this character-driven Sci-Fi offering is perfect for cross-genre readers, and the ethnic currency so cleverly used by the author creates an authentic insight into alien sensibilities that is…  well…  just captivating…”


Early readers quickly became thoroughly immersed:

“…engaging, realistic, and out of this world!…”

“…I was captured after the first chapter…”

“…one of the great new voices in science fiction writing today…”

“…vivid and exciting…”

“…a philosophical delight wrapped up in compelling sci fi…” 

Don’t miss out!
