Vydor is riding a wave of success, but now his ship, the Dragon Claw, is being sent to investigate a mysterious event deep within the Empire’s space. A secret research colony has fallen silent and the forces sent to investigate were never heard from again.

A new enemy has come to the Empire bringing with it dark powers that were abandoned long before the Empire was born. Powers that were thought to be legends and myths.

It's up to Vydor to keep this force at bay and protect the Empire, but it may come at the cost of his faith and shake the foundations of the Empire itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Put It Down February 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought I could read a chapter or two of this book occasionally to fill in time, but noooo... I read it all the way through in 2 sittings; I simply got so much into the story I just didn't want to wait to see what happened.

I haven't had this much sci fi fun since wayyy back when Asimov was writing about robots.

This is a great story line with characters you care about and want to be yourself, with any number of possible future twists. I'm already anxiously looking forward to the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read - 5 stars all round June 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to say I have just finished this book and I cant wait for the next book to come along. The story was fantastic and kept my interest through every page. I think the Mix of Sc-Fi and Fantasy is brilliant, not like the 1 star review I think the writing style is unique and works well for the story and gives us a very intriguing point of view from the main character. All in all a very good read and one which I hope to repeat in the next book

5.0 out of 5 stars Hopefully the first of many in this series February 2, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was kept interested in the characters, and I wanted to read what was going to happen next. I do a lot of "sci-fi" and while the subject might be more magic and witchcraft and less space oddyssey the premise is still the same. Sci-fi readers are looking for escape. They are looking for the possibilities of what can be and most of all they are looking for something outside of their ordinary lives. This books delivers on all these points. I look forward to reading more books by this author. This is a real page turner!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Tough to read, but an interesting story November 15, 2013
By Jimmy-B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this was an interesting story with lots of imagination. I applaud the author on that. However, it was difficult to read because of the writing style. The author would write "do not" instead of don't, "have not" instead of haven't, etc. Every single time. No one talks like that. No one writes like that unless English is a second language, or they took their teachers too seriously in school when they said contractions are unprofessional. It read like it was translated from another language to English actually. Besides the characters not having much depth, there was the annoying habit of repeating certain phrases. For instance, when Vyodar says something we are supposed to believe is shocking, the author writes: "I just let that sit in the air for a bit," or "I just let that sink in." Or something along those lines. I probably read it 30 times in the book and it was the second most irritating thing (first being the lack of contractions.)

Now, this sounds like a lot of criticism and I'm sorry about that because I did enjoy the story. But it was a lot of extra work on my part to make it through the book because of the strange writing style. I'll be skipping the sequels because I assume they'll be written the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, clean, enjoyable read! October 21, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Amazing! Finally a real sci-fi story, not some unimaginative re-hash of the same smut that typically fills sci-fi novels. This one is completely clean and you could read it to your kids at night with no trouble. Strong morals and great sound reasoning. Very good plot as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting twist on a Sci Fi Space novel! January 13, 2011
By Lynz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading this book, it was a refreshing twist on a normal space novel tying in an exciting world of magic. If you enjoy space novels or magical novels I think you would enjoy and appreciate the imagination and creativity in this book. It was an easy read and I would recommend it to anyone. I am looking forward to when the next book comes out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly enjoyable & fast-paced June 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Combining high-tech and magic is often not done well but this book does a superb job of it. It's one of the few books I've read recently that I read cover-to-cover in one sitting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read, give it a try (3.5) May 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like another reviewer I thought I would read this book at a slow pace and found myself not wanting to put it down. Read it in two sittings. Unlike the low rating reviewer I did not find the writing juvenile but at times maybe simple, more could have been said about people, events and things. I am sure the second book will be longer. You mostly get to know the characters through their actions and dialog. It could have had a little more character background, inner thought process exposition, more material to bridge the characters quick evolutionary jumps, more descriptive surroundings, but all this things can be improved. There is nothing wrong with what is written. The story is compelling, the characters are likeable, and the Magic+Sci-fi mix works. I hope there is another book after this cause there is plenty of room for more storytelling.
