I received this book courtesy of Mr. Cash for the purpose of a fair and honest review.
Overview: On the planet Darracia there is a storm brewing. The Darracians are the ruling class, with the Quyroos seeming to be the serving class. The current king has long ago committed a trespass against the Darracian way. He married a Plantan woman. Their son, V’sair, is partially the cause for the stirrings of a civil war. Will V’sair fall due to his own insecurities? Or will he gain the aide of the Elements to save his family?
Story Telling: Well, we have come from Urban Fantasy, through horror, and to a science-fiction tale from Mr. Cash.
Likes: V’sair is the premier Doubting Thomas. He understands the Doctriness, yet he doesn’t feel them down in his gut like the rest of the Darracians do. But he doesn’t deny the ideas when he witnesses them.
Reminda and Drakko truly had big plans. I hope that their plans come to fruition.
Zayden didn’t seem to hold any animosity against his half-breed little brother. He showed how much he is willing to give for him.
Dislikes: Staf’s attitude left much to be desired.
Favorite Character: It would be Reminda.
Favorite Quote: Reminda to Drakko: “Sometimes we must let nature do what it must.…It is not easy , but we must let him find himself.”
Favorite Scene: I enjoyed the part when V’sair learns that maybe the sacred texts might have been misinterpreted.
Conclusion: This is a good start to the trilogy. I hope Mr. Cash manages to keep up the threads through the next two books.
