Having spent two years in forced exile, all Naytan desired was to assist in the liberation of his violently occupied home-world. But when a coded transmission begins to issue across the vacuum of space, unexpectedly threatening to turn the tide of battle, the very survival of his people is called into question.
Faced with seemingly insurmountable odds, Naytan must now travel to the code's source and discover the truth before all is lost.
With time quickly running out, he soon discovers that it is not just the fate of his own home-world that hangs in the balance, but that of the entire galaxy as well. For within the darkest reaches of space, a long hidden nation stirs restlessly, preparing to join the conflict - a nation comprised of terrifying supernatural warriors.
Utilizing all the classic elements of contemporary space-fantasy (intergalactic space travel, alien races, future weapons) and combining them with the best of traditional fantasy literature (kings and queens, elves and dwarves, perilous quests and of course dragons), The King & The Shadows relates an epic adventure spanning the width and breadth of the galaxy.

This appears to be a limited edition so might be a hard book to get hold of, not to sure how the title fits in but I like this book, you know its left its mark on you when for days afterwards you keep thinking back over events in the story, took a little while to get into it but once I did I was glad to see the story picked up and was a good read, sure I have read better but this is pretty darn good read with new ideas, hope his next book is on the way.
Looking forward to your next work Mr Milne.

Fresh new idea. As a sci-fi fan I find the last few years have not produced a lot of original work. Books you can just sit down and read. This one I liked. Look forward to seeing future titles from author, new work might be a bit more polished but hope it maintains that gritty feel. LWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
