"An Author I truly hope to read more of!"
Introduced to a future where earth is no longer home and
our race reaches out to space and it's many planets and
moons to create a new future. Ms. Gray leans upon the
concept of the Scottish clans of old. We learn that this
has become once again then new way of hierarchy and culture
as Clan leaders strike out to survive.
But as there was in the days of old and of this
possible future, something so simple as love and jealousy
can be enough to fuel the fires of war. But long before the
complexities of war take over the Clan Douglas and Clan
Kinsale form a secret betrothal between their children. A
betrothal that is nearly lost and forgotten as war takes
Ms. Gray knows how to weave and tie the knots in this
story to make you accelerate through each word to find out
what happens as she places each unknown betrothed on
opposing sides of the war. But as fate moves forward and
Ms. Gray begins to unravel her work we find that ultimately
Kimberly Kinsale and Lachlan Douglas both want the same
thing... peace. It is this common goal that unites them in
a fragile relationship and tests them as love and
attraction complicate their every move.
I was so thoroughly impressed and fascinated with the
level of detail and creativity in this book. There was no
issue on visualizing Ms. Gray's amazing worlds and
incredible technological concepts.
And of course no book is complete without an enemy
you truly despise and yet can't help but feel almost sorry
for... almost! Rama's actions are so sneaky, sleazy, and
despicable that I found myself squirming in my chair when
ever he'd pop up in the story.
And the secondary characters that framed the hero and
heroine were wonderful and never detracted from the focus
of Kimberly and Lachlan but rather enhanced the story
R. Garland Gray writes an astounding romance that is
action packed and creatively driven. I found my emotions
were well played with each page I read in this phenomenal
novel. This was a sci-fi like no other and I 110% recommend
this out of the world e-book!
