MY REVIEW

I wasn't sure about this book, but something kept pulling at me. It didn't take long before I was fully involved in Teo and Guy's world. I could not put it down and read it through in one sitting. Teo is a recalcitrant prince, soon to be king and Emperor. Guy Erma is an orphan who dreams of becoming one of the Dome Elite. Two boys growing up, so different, yet the same. They have desires and insecurities, egos and jealousy. When Teo has a nightmare of the tunnels...and finds himself taken there, I immediately tried to figure out who was behind the kidnapping. He just happens to be a pawn in the 'game' that is being played for the title of Emperor of Freyne. The characters had me eating out of their hands and I think they will grow and develop into some exceptional people who think outside the box, making unpopular moves that take their world to a better place. D'Elen McClain's writing took me on a space odyssey that included all the things necessary to take me out of this world. We have shapeshifting aliens, telepaths and suicide fighters. Political intrigue, terrorism, plague. Wonderful writing, great world building and so much more. I love the gorans, giant cats that are ridden like a horse, making me think of the creatures in Star Wars. The thrill and suspense held my attention throughout and I love that D'Elen showed the good and bad of her characters, making them more believable. I am curious how she will bring the different worlds together. This may be fiction, but it brings to mind some of the problems of our own world and the question of...will we ever learn to live in harmony with one another? I want to know more of the story of Teo and Guy. Will Nell play an important part in the future? :-)

I received this book in return for an honest review.
