Back home from a war, Brendan encounters a new kind of war but not of this world. The story varies in pace and features plenty of characters. The book is written in the present tense so readers read the narrative in real-time. This is a personal pleasant way to read since nothing in the future can be foreseen and readers learn what happens at the same time as the characters. The present tense also emphasises the suspense and emotional turmoil experienced by the characters featured, particularly Brendan's. However, the dialogue is stiff and this is a lengthy read.


I received a free copy and am leaving a review voluntarily.
Thank you to StoryOrigin and author.

The concept of this book intrigued me - a veteran who gets dragged into extraterrestrial politics and drama after an alien encounter, in which he helps out a stranger. I, however, struggled to get into it. I found the start a little confusing and the writing is often somewhat stilted. That being said, I enjoyed the politics - both extraterrestrial and earthen. I loved that the Earth politics very much refected where we are now with all the hostility and fear and distrust. Definitely believable.

It's always possible I just wasn't in the right mindset for this book. I might pick it up again at some point in the future and see if I can get immersed in this interesting world a little better then.… (mais)
