About the Author

My journey to become a writer began in 8th grade, when I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and pulled from school to recover. During this time, I was left alone for hours on end and it was then that I discovered new friends within the pages of books. I also learned the blessing of creating my own friends by writing down the stories that plagued my lonely mind—as demented as that sounds. Therefore at the ripe age of fourteen, I wrote my first novel. It sucked! But I kept going and now I am an Indie Author with numerous books out. I never imagined that first horrible novel about a man who crash landed on his long lost home world would turn into a lifelong passion. I now live in Chicago, IL with my amazing husband and two rambunctious kittens, Groot and Rocket.

While there were some errors in the writing, overall I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I went on to read the next two books in the series, as well as the prequel. I found great character development in the main character, Bethany, throughout the series. And while some might argue that her behavior was unrealistic (acting out while a slave, knowing it would bring severe punishments), I would argue that it was perfectly natural for her to do so, considering the circumstances. The human spirit does persevere. One star was taken away because although I could overlook a few writing flaws, I cannot get over how often the author started a sentence with, "Sadly, ..." when there was NOTHING sad about what followed the word. It literally started making me cringe every time I encountered the word.

I tried to push through but after a quarter of the way through, I had to give up. Some actions simply were too far fetched and unrealistic. A slave trying not to laugh knowing severe puishment awaits? Commiting acts of sabatoge knowing shed be caught? Also, it was very slow going. I kept hoping it would kick to a higher gear. Its a shame because obviously the author can write and tell a story, or will be eventually. DMB
