When asked what sort of books I like my reply is always the same - “I’ll read anything as long as it’s well written”. After reading the sample I decided that this one probably qualified so I took the plunge and downloaded it, even though I’m not usually a big fan of sci-fi. Well I’m glad I did!
The unlikely hero is a humanoid-android cross called Kylem and the way this adolescent character is developed really made me empathise with him. In fact all the characters are believable and “real”, so much so that I completely accepted the reality of an alien race, living aboard a starship the size of a small planet and cheerfully immersed myself in their world.
I’m not going to add any spoilers because I want others to enjoy it as much as I did. So suffice to say it’s a well-crafted story with a diverse cast of characters, a captivating plot and you don’t have to be a sci-fi aficionado to enjoy it.
