Author John Migacz introduces the reader to a likeable cast of characters who are at once strong and vulnerable, brash and timid, childishly innocent one minute and fiercely protective the next. They are, in a word - human. And that, paradoxically, is both their strength and their weakness in this well-plotted novel of civilizations colliding. In a rollicking journey filled with menacing forces of evil and swashbuckling heroes, 'The Dieya Chronicles: Incident on Ravar' is a page-turner that will grab your interest with the first chapter and kep it piqued through a series of rolling turns and hyper-leaps from the dusty planet of Ravar to the far quadrants of the universe. Migacz's characters Balthus and Adrianna carry the plot forward with witty banter that belies their heartfelt devotion to each other. After a run-in with bandits, Adrianna says, 'A few inches of steel under the breastbone will do the same job as opening a man from head to groin, you know?' Balthus replies, 'Where's the fun in that?' Well, there's lots of fun in this debut piece of work from John MIgacz, who promises more of the same in the not-so-distant future. Sci-Fi fans everywhere, let us hope he makes good on that promise!
