The 5 Moons of Tiiana / the Chronicles of Rez Cantor: A Swashbuckling, Science Fiction Epic Filled with Adventure, Mystery, Romance, and Fantasyby Paul Harry
After saving the Princess of Melela from certain death at the hands of the alien hybrid Relcor, then getting her off planet, Captain Rez Cantor is in a quandary. Instead of reaching a safe haven as planned, the unthinkable happens, and the results leave him injured and alone on an alien moon with no recollection of how he got there. To make matters worse, his life is in danger. There is a strange alien cloud hovering over him with the intention of devouring him.
Welcome to the 5 moons of Tiiana---five moons unlike any other in the galaxy.
This story is an epic narration on Rez's quest as he searches for the answers to the mysteries surrounding Tiiana and her 5 moons. But first, he will need to survive and adapt, second, locate the princess, and third, save the races of Tiiana from annihilation.
The journey begins on Urlena, a water-covered moon populated by the Aquella, a race forced to live underwater because of Giragoc, the cloud God, who rules the sky.
Next comes, Boutal-a medieval moon divided between three rival races, the human-looking Motula, the ape-wolf Solula, and the flying gargoyles known as the Brata.
Aura is a dead moon ruled by robots, the only surviving remnants of the first moon war.
Zin is a moon peopled by the Zecla-a warrior race of locust who breed uncontrollably every 2000 years crushing and devouring everything in their path.
And lastly, there is Vashia, the cool blue moon ruled by the Visi-a race of ghosts who hold the key to everything.
Intrigued by this wondrous array of moons and beings? Perhaps then you'd like to join Rez on his quest. The journey begins on page one . . .

The 5 Moons of Tiiana brings to my mind the old black and white sci-fi shows I saw as a kid on Saturday afternoon when it was too rainy to play outside. Author Paul Harry mentions he grew up as a big fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs and certainly there is a resemblance to Burroughs’ John Carter of Mars in this new novel. The protagonist, Rez Cantor, believes he has lost everything he has worked for his whole life as a soldier, but the invasion of his home planet only takes him on a more important mission than he could ever have imagined. And, he takes his sword with him. Much as fugitive Henri Charrière in “Papillon” had things go in his favor only to be thrown back to the fire, Cantor moves from one moon to another, sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. This is a steady read, the pace moderate. The plot is set early: save the princess, trials, tribulations, survive to fight another day. Character motivation is simple as the book revolves around Rez and the princess. The arch-nemesis is a whole race of marauding Space Lords who are destroying every planet in their wake, which also reminds me of a 50’s movie, “The day the earth stood still.” Author Harry gets credit for his imagination, introducing strange and interesting creatures into the story such as the Dolla, a group of smart, telepathic fish with a great capacity for helping our hero. And of course, there is Cantor’s main mission: to protect his planet’s princess. This is a good rainy day book.
"5 Moons of Tiiana" is a fast paced, action packed adventure that was difficult to put down. With the author's imagination and the characters that just came alive, it caught me from the first page. I would recommend this book to all sci-fi lovers! This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.
The 5 Moons of Tiiana is a fast-paced, action-packed adventure perfect for lovers of sci-fi. First off, I really enjoyed the characters. Rez Cantor is my version of a sci-fi Bond--except more human. I felt I could connect with him because he wasn't perfect (*gasp*) but the mistakes he made solidified his character. And despite the cliches many of the minor characters took on, I found I didn't mind. For the most part, the book flowed. Every now and then an awkward sentence would pop up that momentarily disconnected me from the story but it wasn't often enough to detract from it. Again, cliches appeared with phrases this time. Harry made them work, tying everything together in a page-turning adventure but I think the novel could have done without so many (as a reader, I could figure out that Rez was short on time). This book wasn't entirely original in some of the smaller aspects but is a good read for those ready to disappear into another world. If you like the class "hero's journey," you'll love Rez and his adventure. I recommend this for anyone with a taste for space and the effects of war among the stars.
