Ciaran Richards’ father was a soldier. A hero.
But now he’s dead. Or is he?
How does a world equipped with bows, arrows and catapults, where steam power is just beginning to replace horses and sailing ships, avert a conquest from beyond the stars? Prince Regilius has been engineered to combat the Dalthin, a predatory alien species that enslaves worlds telepathically, and to do so he must unite his people. But when his mother murders his father, the land descends into chaos and his task may prove impossible. Faced with slaying the one who gave him life in order to protect his world, he seeks a better way. Set in a vast and varied land where telepaths and those with unusual metal abilities tip the course of events, Awakening goes to the heart of family, friendship and betrayal.
Pure escapism and a rip roaring tale is the order of play in Awakening, the first book in the Ydron Saga by author Raymond Bolton and it’s a grand debut. An ambitious and well considered SF crossover, it begins at a blistering pace and continues throughout as Bolton builds his beguiling world of contrasts. His characters imbued with an inherent sense of purpose that provides for insightful perspectives on an evolving plot with intrigue and suspense woven through its core, the prevailing conflict providing for an abundance of action. Eschewing the more commonly overt manifestations of alien technology and the well toted elements of fanciful magic, Bolton breathes originality into the genre with his singular focus on telepathy.
A highly recommended addition to your bookshelf, Awakening is a top notch read that will have fans of fantasy fiction eagerly awaiting the next release from author Raymond Bolton.
