Description

Alien hunters invade a dying Earth in search of a saviour, and an ancient prophecy predicts a golden child who will save a galactic empire. A mysterious black ship is Rayne’s guide and a masked outlaw known as the Shrike her guardian. Others want to slay her and prevent the prophecy from coming true. In the midst of two great empires’ strife, the Shrike holds the power to save or destroy her.

    Well written and not at all surprising that earth destroys itself . About to read the other 2

    A slow, tedious read. Nothing much happens to characters I didn't really believe or care about. The only vaguely interesting character (The Shrike) was only so by comparison to the flat cookie-cutter characters that otherwise populate this pointless tome. Save yourself some time and read something else.

    It is a good enough story and although I enjoyed it, I felt two things were missing. Firstly, the characters Rawn and Tallyn were too flat. They need more complexity and depth to be believable. In addition to this I didn't feel Rayne - Shrike interactions were believable. Secondly, the universe in which this is set needs more work. The death of Earth lacked impact and wasn't well thought out. The Atlantean plans for the prophesy were vague.

    It was really quite enjoyable, and I'm about to buy the second part of the story. I do prefer a book to be longer, less than 300 pages is a bit irritating, I like a good, eight or nine hundred pages to get stuck into, but I'll tolerate it this time. It's hard to find good Science fiction books in the iBook store when they are all mixed up with the mountains of vampire and werewolf junk, and the iBooks limited search and filter system is a real pain, so I'm happy I came across this book. But I have to add that it is seriously bad for the reputation of an author to begin a book with that ridiculous paragraph about not sharing your books with others. Its always been the way that authors build up a reputation, people lending books to each other is what creates a following and then further purchases of other books for the author. I bought it, it's mine, and I'll do what I want with it, just as I would with a real physical copy. If its the publishers tarnishing the authors reputation with that rubbish, then it's about time authors dropped publishers entirely. Make your own website and sell directly from there. Do something, anything, there's always a way.

    I found this a tad slow to start with however I still couldn't put it down! It really is a fantastic book and the author really does capture your imagination! I'm a fan of the queens blade series so I trusted the author enough to try this! Just downloaded the next 2 and I already know it's worth every penny. Defiantly recommend this and also the queens blade

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Have just read the 2nd volume, which is a must buy at £1.99, definitely worth it. Would recommend.

    Great for a sci-fi fan, or someone looking for a good book to read. The book is very well thought out, it has surprises, it tells the characters story so well you feel yo know them and it will make you want to read the 2nd and 3rd edition to the series.
