Thrilling Galatic Space Opera Synposis: Two boys as different as any two boys might be. Guy Erma has only one dream - to join the Dome Elite, a planetary protection force of space marines and fighter pilots. An unregistered orphan, to gain his place Guy Erma must plead his case to Chart Segat, Commander of the Dome Elite. Teodor, Prince of Freyne, lives a life of privilege as heir to Freyne 2 and the Freyne Empire. He has tutors and all the things money can buy. When the Prince is kidnapped by Battle Borgs, his mother, Regent Sayginn, will go to any lengths to find him even losing a political debate. The two boys' paths are drawn to a crossroads as a horrific planet-killer peril is revealed and changes both their lives forever. As with any great science fiction story, Guy Erma & the Son of the Empire takes a little while to acclimate to the new world and terminology so it does require some rereading of parts. But onceI got used to it, I was eager to find out what happened next. It reminded me of Dune with the fast paced action, double-crossing villians and young heroes forced to grow up fast. Overall great read for any young adult or older who likes science fiction. Can't wait to see what the future holds for the Freyne Empire!
Sally Ann Melia's Guy Erma and the Son of Empire is an absorbing read that drew me in from the beginning. There's so much action, intrigue and adventure in this space/fantasy adventure that I was thoroughly entertained throughout. The plot moves swiftly with lots of great characters to love, hate, or worry about. (Amazing creatures/aliens!) Although there are some dark moments in this beautifully crafted tale, they serve to lend depth and authenticity to a fantastical tale that is entirely suitable for the young adult readership as well as the young-at-heart. I will definitely be seeking more from this talented storyteller.
