About Neil Davies

Born in 1959, and preferring not to think too hard about it, Neil Davies writes genre fiction (mostly science fiction and horror, but he refuses to be held to that). When not writing books, he records music with his son as The 1850 Project, and paints pictures of dubious artistic merit with acrylic paints. When not creating, he likes to read books, listen to music and watch subtitled Scandinavian Noir (it started with Wallander and never stopped - and yes, he's read the books too). A solitary animal by nature, he nevertheless lives with his long-suffering wife, two adult children and a cat. It's just possible the cat is the sanest one of them all. For more information please visit his official website -, or find him on Facebook (nwdavies), Twitter (@nwdavies), Instagram (nwdavies) and many other social networks.

I read this a while ago, forgot to post a review, came back to see if the sequel was out and decided to put my omission right. I've been searching Smashwords for decent indie space opera for a while and this is certainly one of the better ones. At heart, it is a political thriller, with overtones of military sci-fi, strange aliens, religious conflicts and a whole heap of complicated personal relationships. Most of the large number of cast are pleasingly well-rounded characters, though there were a few who were not particularly memorable, which led to a bit of head-scratching when they reappeared. The few improbable plot devices were resolved by the twist at the end, which though not entirely unexpected was nevertheless effective.

The author got so wrapped up in "world building" he forgot he was supposed to be telling an actual story. I mean come on, I know what sand looks like, no need to spend page after page telling me. Sorry but at 10 percent there still was no story so... delete time.

This was a set your price book I set to zero and I still over paid.
