Overview

A single baby, born to save a world.

Two ancient prophecies, both foretelling the extinction of a race. Two sides racing to their appointment with destiny.

A leader of men, determined to outwit the foretelling of his doom, leads his people in a sickening massacre to secure the continuation of his race.

A single man, troubled with nightmares and voices in dreams, worries for his sanity as his life crumbles around him. Alone and friendless, Vincent escapes to isolated freedom, the loneliness forcing him to succumb to the terrifying nightmares and finally, to listen to the voices in the dreams.

Many worlds away across the aching void, Farra listens to the voices in her own dreams, and embarks upon a perilous journey to bring truth and justice to one troubled soul struggling to find a purpose.

The child that is now a man must face his nemesis and end the tide of evil that laid waste his world as he took his first breath.

The voices in the dreams lead them on a journey through space and time, from world to world in a desperate struggle for truth, justice, life.

Meet the Author

I am the author of science fiction/space fantasy novels.I have always loved science fiction movies and books and have wanted to write a novel for years. As a teenager I used to get great ideas for story lines in my head and I would try to write them down but I didn't have the knowledge to make them into a book. Now here I am at fifty and I have two novels now available. All things at the right moment huh?As a psychic medium my stories all contain a strong spiritual thread, with both the living, physical world and the spiritual world blending and inter connecting. Those who know me through my work as a medium have often asked me why I don't write a spiritual book. Well I have, but it's entwined within a science fiction/space opera story line.The process of writing is, for me, entirely intuitive and all of my characters and plot lines come to me intuitively. I don't plan my books other than to have an idea of what I want to be the 'main event' in the story. Once I have that, I just sit and begin to write and pretty soon the story and characters take over control and build it themselves. I often say that I don't write my books, I just take dictation from the characters!I am autistic and have a unique capacity for annoying and offending people, none of which is deliberate by the way. I really am a nice person but sometimes I just don't know how to show you that effectively.

This book is set in a futuristic world where travelling from planet to planet and even between planetary systems is an everyday occurrence. The main character, Farra, is chosen for a task which will require courage and self sacrifice. Having grown up during the reconstruction on earth and then joined the deep space core of the military, she is well suited for the job. The other protagonist, Vincent, also survived a life of hardship to prepare him for the monumental task which he must perform. Separately these two characters journey from destination to destination to reach their ultimate common goal which had been prophesied many centuries before. The idiom which came to mind while I was reading the story was: 'one good turn deserves another'. Both main characters show remarkable bravery, self sacrifice and a willingness to help others. This gains them the help and gratitude of the Drycenian nation and numerous others. Yet, despite their positive actions, they are still the victims of jealousy, revenge and suspicion. Although this book has a healthy dose of the usual technology and phenomena common in most space science fiction books, the author masterfully balanced it with a very appealing, unique and original setting. All the characters are human with slightly differing powers and physiology, and not the weird beings so common in many space fantasy books. The characters are interesting and well defined; the good guys highly likable and the bad guys really quite revolting and self-serving. It is a story so full of action, adventure and suspense that I just kept on reading. There are some truly beautiful, insightful moments when I found myself smiling and, sometimes, wiping tears away. The frequent changes in point of view, keeps the reader in the loop; always aware of what is happening on all fronts. I would highly recommend this book to young and old as a futuristic book with a unique flavor. It deserves every one of the 5 stars I am giving it and I am looking forward to reading more books by Merita King. (Ellen Fritz)

Premise okay, but lots of unnecessary words

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review. I love science fiction, so when I was offered this book, I grabbed at it! I'm glad I did, because I loved it! Farra is a human from Earth. She is a very strong character. She is very tenacious, has a will of iron and is dangerous with a knife! I liked her very much. She has been chosen for a very dangerous mission. Will she succeed? Vincent is a very enigmatic character. I liked this character very much, but he didn't feature much in the beginning of the story. He is very much a loner, but being framed for a crime he didn't commit, he has become a fugitive. This was an exciting read that kept me hooked from the first page! Science fiction is a subjective genre, but it allows the author to create beautiful worlds and fantastical characters. Add in a touch of suspense, and you get an adventure of galactic proportions! The author of this book has done just that. The descriptions of the characters and the environs were such that I could easily picture them. The story is told from several points of view, but Farra seems to be the main character until Vincent is brought into it. I was intrigued with Drycenian nation. They are most civilized, and are very technologically advanced compared to all the other worlds. Although, I'm not sure I approved of some of the technology used on Farra. However, I can see why they would do so, and she definitely needed the improvements to aid her mission! The King and the Prince appear to be kind and gentle, but they can be dangerous if provoked. I wouldn't want to get on their bad side! There is a prophecy to fulfill and danger in the form of the Transmortal Army. These are a rather nasty bunch of people but, in their own way, they are pawns in a mad man's vendetta. There are plenty of twists and turns that surprised me, but there was a big one that I certainly didn't see coming! I am now looking forward to reading the next book, The Sleeping. Merita King has written a fantastic science fiction novel that is fast paced and flows beautifully. I am now a fan of hers! Due to some gruesome violence, I do not recommend this book for younger readers, but I highly recommend this book if you love Science Fiction. - Lynn Worton

I find it off-putting that the review for this book is written without any capitalization. That alone makes me want to not read this book.
