Caiden’s planet is destroyed. His family gone. And, his only hope for survival is a crew of misfit aliens and a mysterious ship that seems to have a soul and a universe of its own. Together they will show him that the universe is much bigger, much more advanced, and much more mysterious than Caiden had ever imagined. But the universe hides dangers as well, and soon Caiden has his own plans.
He vows to do anything it takes to get revenge on the slavers who murdered his people and took away his home. To destroy their regime, he must infiltrate and dismantle them from the inside, or die trying.
Nophek Gloss is an absolute masterclass in world building and character voice- from the very first page Essa Hansen weaves an almost cinematic web around the reader, absorbing you into the intelligent narrative and mix of action and emotion.
You need to commit to this one but once you do you’ll be hooked throughout..one boy’s journey towards revenge in a world that has taken everything from him, the group dynamic of new found friends and a family forming, all wrapped up in an engaging, vibrant and often violent world. It is multi layered and brilliant.
I can’t wait for part two
