Breakers of the Dawn
on March 23, 2016
*I received a free ARC for an honest review.*
Breakers of the Dawn is an epic sci fi saga that blends elements of fantasy and good old fashioned space opera. Unlike so many books in this genre, it doesn’t stun you with a big data dump at the beginning. Instead, it plunges you into the action from the first page, and lets the world building unfold naturally.
The writing style is clean and simple, allowing the story to take center stage. The narrative moves quickly and shifts between multiple perspectives, both human and alien. You can easily inhale it in one sitting. While the plot is complex, I was able to keep track of it all, and it came together nicely in the end.
Ironically, my biggest criticism is that this book may not have been long enough. More fully realized characters—especially the humans—as well as additional detail on the Ashamine (human) and Entho-la-ah-mine (insect) civilizations would have made this debut novel even better. As with most indie books, there are a few minor formatting glitches, but nothing so distracting that it pulled me out of the action.
Bottom line? This is a highly entertaining first novel, and I’m looking forward to seeing more from Zachariah.
