Next up for review is Wild Sun by Ehsan Ahmad & Shakil Ahmad
Here’s the blurb –
Genre – Science Fiction
On a world enslaved, the last embers of hope are fading into an unrelenting darkness. Conquered and broken, the natives are forced to ravage their own lush planet of its natural resources—all for the glory of a mysterious empire they’ve never seen and barely comprehend.
But not all light is lost. In the heart of one young woman alone, the gods have set a flame that cannot be extinguished. Cerrin remains as fierce and unyielding as the planet itself. And her chance to strike is fast approaching.
Above the skies of her home world, soldiers of the empire are welcoming their new civilian commander—a vicious nobleman blinded by hidden ambitions. When the new face of darkness turns its eyes on Cerrin, the fate of countless worlds will change forever.
Wild Sun is an epic tale around slavery/domination and the fight for freedom.
The tale focuses around a few characters, one being Cerrin. She’s forced into servitude but yearns for freedom and will risk it all to get it.
Sonus is another of the unfortunates forced to serve the Vitaari, he’s smart..super smart. When his life is turned upside down it’s time to step-up and get revenge.
While these two have never met their paths are going to collide.
The Vitaari are a race who want only to dominate..they use technology to suppress those they feel are less than them but they are vain..and a little complacent at times..that will be their downfall.
Cerrin’s and Sonus’s path cross with the thanks to some allies.. the time to rebel is fast approaching.
I really enjoyed Vellerik, one of the Vitaari.. while he’s one of the bad guys he’s the best of the bunch..honourable.. when push comes to shove what we he do?
The plot was very good, clear, focused and with enough detail to paint a vivid image of what it must be like for those captives. The writing style meant the book flowed well..There’s a lot to take in at first but after the initial couple of chapters I was easily hooked…it kept getting better and better with every chapter.
I don’t often request books from NetGalley but im glad I requested this one in exchange for an honest review. Well worth reading!
My rating 4/5 Stars!
