This graphic novel prequel to the massive Saga of Seven Suns series is filled with dazzling images. I read it immediately after reading the first novel in the seven book story. It is very short, but provides some illustration of a few of the events mentioned in the past of the first novel’s narrative. Some new information is provided, and the images are impressive. I think it is implied that more graphic novels will be created to fill out the back-story, but to my knowledge, that has not occurred. I enjoyed this “book” as an added piece of the large Seven Suns story. Michael Travis Jasper, Author of the Novel “To Be Chosen”

Great artwork and compelling story. This is the prequel for the Seven Suns Series. It explains how Theoroc became independent, what happened to the first Roamer Skymine and the first years of the joint Human and Ildirian Dobro colony. A must have for all the fans of the Seven Suns Saga.

I ordered this book expecting it to be the 3rd installment in the Saga of Seven Suns, instead it is a poor comic book in a hard cover package. I think the packaging is very deceptive making it appear as if was part of the on going series.
