The Eye Of Icarusby Michael D'Ambrosio
Will Saris, an ambitious and young officer in the Space Fleet, embarks on his first mission alone with one directive - be discrete. He disobeys that directive and sets off a chain of events that not only change his life but much of the universe as well. The Eye of Icarus, book one in the Space Frontiers Series, starts off with edge-of-the-seat action, heart-throbbing romance, and chilling suspense where Will Saris goes from a rookie Officer and boy to a mature master manipulator of the alien races. The Eye of Icarus is the long awaited follow-up to D'Ambrosio's Fractured Time Trilogy as Will Saris, son of Fractured Time's Billy Brock, proves to be much like his father as he weaves his own thrilling and romantic adventures in a hostile universe.

The characters were very entertaining. They had a great chemistry. The plot was well constructed and kept me guessing what the outcome would be. The writing style was good and I enjoyed the dialogue. It was appropriate where used. it was especially touching the way Will and Shanna's romance evolved. The rivalry that developed between Will and the alien king was great! I could feel the rage in the alien king whenever Will outwitted him. I can't wait to read the sequel, Dangerous Liaisons. This is a must read for anyone who enjoys reading.
The characters are diverse and entertaining. The plot is well written and provides a great web of interaction for the development of the characters' relationships. The originality is great considering we've already seen and read stories like Star Trek and Star Wars. The author does a good job in taking the reader to a new and exciting universe. Will and Shanna's growing relationship has its share of tender moments as their lives become more entwined. I could really imagine the things that happened in the story and felt as though I were part of it. I recently bought the second book, Dangerous Liaisons, in this Space Frontiers series. I can't wait to read it.
