A well-crafted sci-fi. One thing that really struck me as I read this book was how much thought went into this universe and characters. The action starts right from the beginning of the story as guy-next-door Roman Doyle is viciously attacked by an unusual and ruthless gang in the streets of London. I was hooked pretty quickly and enjoyed the fast pace and interesting details that brought the story to life. As the complicated history is revealed the strange events started making sense and the adventure really took off. Each character plays a unique role and I enjoyed getting to know them. By chapter 17 I already feared for Soraya, felt for Roman, enjoyed Chi-Ro’s perspective, dreaded encountering the Asing or Brakis Tarn, was intrigued by Nuri, and interested to know more about Zachary’s history. In my haste to see what would happen next, because of the cliffhangers at the end of each chapter, I often didn’t realize how long I had been reading. I honestly couldn’t put this book down. I also found myself laughing out loud at some of the things Chi-Ro said and even quoting him later. Everything about this book screams creative, intelligent and well developed. The glossary at the end was extremely helpful in understanding this complex world. With likable characters and beautiful/fascinating sceneries I truly felt transported into this book and eagerly await a continuation of the story.
This book drives you in from the very beginning and not a lot of novels do this. A fast-paced read, the action starts on chapter one and doesn’t end until the very last word. I love science fiction and this a great addition to the genre. You know you are reading a good book when every page leaves you hungry for the next page and you just don’t want to stop until you’re finished. For me, this was definitely that kind of book. Along with all the action, the novel has other things going for it. You can tell that a great deal of time and thought went into the development of the storyline. The author did a great job of building a fantastically detailed world. The narration was great; it really drew me in. The scenes were well described but not overdone, so it wasn’t distracting but engaging. Additionally, the characters were dynamic, well developed, and likable. Another important aspect of an awesome book is the dialogue – which does require a good deal of practice – and this author does a fantastic job of it. The fighting scenes were also well-crafted. The writing was very good and the novel was well-edited which adds even more value to this wonderful story. I thoroughly enjoyed this awesome read and would recommend it to anyone whether you are a fan of science fiction or not. This novel does not disappoint. I will be looking out for more from this author.
Great book. Just as described.
When given this book to review by Darkiss, I was unsure if I would like it or not. I am not a huge Sci-Fi fan. However, from the very first page Veterans of the Psychic War grabbed my attention. This book is jam packed with action and it grabs hold of you as we follow Roman a school teacher, married to the love of his life and soon to be father, being swept up into a nightmare that he can't escape. As a martial artist I was enthralled with the way the fight scenes played out. The author has a unique writing style that placed me smack dab in the middle of elaborate fight scenes. I found myself fighting alongside of Roman and Chi-Ro on more than one occasion. I was transported into a world where the boundaries of time did not exist and anything was possible with the sheer power of thought. The depth of the characters held me captive and I felt my heart ache for Roman who is trying to grasp and understand the truth of who he truly is. He is driven by loss and the love of this wife and unborn child. The author did a fantastic job of creating supporting characters that you either hated or loved. He gave glimpses of their stories and I was caught up in all the gamete of emotions that each character went through. The authors writing style is truly brilliant and his ability to draw you into his universe is second to none. From the start you are as confused as the books hero but together you are led forward into an incredible conclusion that left me stunned, shocked and greatly satisfied. I have to say that the conclusion to this tale was practically orgasmic. I can not recommend it enough just on the merit of it's plot twist.I highly recommend this book if you are a Sci-fi lover for it has everything you are looking for!!
