Editorial Reviews


Gripping action, provocative questions, and a universe big enough to play in - what more could I ask for? Astra Ching has never expected much from her life, and she certainly never wanted to compete in a mysterious interstellar game to the death. Caught between ruthless aliens and government conspiracies, Astra faces threats she never imagined, and in the end, her humanity will either prove sufficient to keep her alive, or lead directly to the entire Earth's end. J.D. Edwin's HEADSPACE is an entertaining, engaging romp from the boxes of an unpacked living room to the creation of our universe, and it's a ride you don't want to miss. —Ruthanne Reid, best-selling author of the Among the Mythos Series

Headspace is a thoroughly enjoyable read, packed with lots of action, memorable characters and twists that surprised me time and again. If you liked the Hunger Games, you'll love this book. Only in Headspace's game, sadistic aliens are setting the rules. Great writing from a talented new author.
—Evelyn Puerto, author of The Outlawed Myth Series

It has been a while since I read an entire book in one sitting but HEADSPACE is just that intriguing. An action-packed thrill ride that feels strongly realistic. As if it could take place this afternoon! With relatable characters and vivid descriptions, HEADSPACE puts you front and center in the thrill ride of a lifetime. The array of representation in this book realistically and beautifully encapsulates the human experience. Outstanding and amazing! I can't recommend it enough.
—Tangela Williams-Spann, author of Sad, Black, and Fat: Musings From The Intersection

HEADSPACE by J. D. Edwin is an intense, science-fiction thriller that pulls no punches. Her characters manage to be both flawed and lovable, making even the aliens deeply human. It took me a little while to get into this book, but once I was there I couldn't put it down. I literally read the last half in one day.
—Abigail Silver, author of Child of Awareness

A strange object from outer space has come to Earth. It's definitely alien, but what do they want? I bet you'll never guess. I sure didn't. This is one of the most atypical alien-visitation stories I've ever read. There's always something interesting happening, even in the more leisurely moments. And I'm never able to guess what happens next. Edwin writes an entertaining story with exciting action and compelling characters. There's a little bit of everything in this novel: action, adventure, drama, mystery, science fiction, and even a little romance.
—Dawn Ross, author of the Dragon Spawn Chronicles Series

Innovative, entertaining, and clever. A pleasure to read.
—Ichabod Ebenezer, author of A Shadow Stained in Blood and Beyond the Rail and Other Nightmares

What happens if you suddenly are thrust into the spotlight and responsible for the human race's extinction?...the game is a deadly one; not only for Astra, but for the entire world...Astra has to win the game or no more planet Earth...
—Kana Wu, author of No Secrets Allowed
