Overview

Two-hundred years ago the powerful Iástron race disappeared. Fifty years ago it died out completely. Darkness followed. War and death and suffering, born of prejudice and fear, fills the Four Systems. Crilshar’s power grows. The Systemal Alignment trembles. Titan, the only force able to fight back, has never been weaker.

Upon Titan, moon of Saturn, Anna Berenguer plans her escape. A way out of the relentless shadow. Her personal demons are but a sign of what is to come. Her journey into the unknown a battle with fate itself. Her destiny as yet unclear. Her enemy and the enemy of all mankind . . . awoken.

I never think too much about free books, in part due to the question of just why they happen to be free. Saying that, I would have gladly paid for Iastron (unconventional title, but credit where credit's due). The author has created a vivid, imaginative world which I feel has only been partially revealed to us so far. I won't say much about the plot twists, only that one or two I really didn't see coming! This appears to be the first in a series, so I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for the sequel.

A little confusing in the beginning but when you push through it all the dots get connected and it all makes sense. Then thats when it gets really good.

This book starts out confusing. Many characters are quickly introduced at one location. Then the story jumps to a new location with more new characters -- over and over. It isn't till about 200 pages into the story before any of these characters start connecting. The middle section of this story is pretty good. You finally start to make some sense of all the different locations and characters and find the storyline. Unfortunately, it starts to fall apart in the last third of the book. There may be lots of twists and turns, but they are one-trick ponies -- a character dies or seems to ... oh wait, no they're not dead after all. The backtracking to explain how the person who died, isn't dead after all just gets ridiculous. Oh and just about every character goes good guy, bad guy, good guy. Could have been a much better tale if the author hadn't tried so hard to create an epic. Ended up with quantity and not enough quality.
