As the spaceship secretly lands on Earth, Ka’s mission is clear: find and kill Transprophetics. His shipmates think of him as a killer. On his home planet of Koranth, he is considered a murderer. Haunted in his dreams by the boy whose life he stole, Ka struggles to define who he really is.
A girl in a temple in Thailand. A boy kidnapped in Mexico. Both can do the impossible. Both can move objects with their minds. These two Transprophetics pose grave risks to the Donovackia Corporation as it plans its invasion of Earth.
With a blade in his hand, Ka’s decision to kill, or not, will reverberate across the galaxy.
This book is GRITTY. It hits on politics as well as some of the lesser used subjects in science fiction. It will kick your butt.
On the one hand, you want to hate Ka. You really do. He does something incredibly immoral and stupid. He pays for it though. He pays for it for a long time.
I had to remind myself that he was just a kid who found himself in a very bad situation with some very bad people. Being under that kind of stress can make a teen justify action’s they normally wouldn’t. You really have to keep that in perspective.
Watching those around him react to him with no real knowledge of the situation was eye opening. I realized that often we make assumptions about someone with very little real knowledge of the exact circumstances. Circumstances matter. They really do.
This book is multi-faceted. It brings up real political issues that are relate-able to our current time period while at the same time creating a story that is both entertaining and emotion catching.
It take’s talent to be able to draw so many things into one story and have it all tie in together.
There are no real cliff hangers in this book. You leave the story with a sense of transition more than frustration for not having it completely tied up. It is the first book in a series and I am really looking forward to the second.
Series books make me happy. They really do.
I rate this book with 5 stars.
