Book Description

Unique and distinct in setting and style, Lunara takes the reader on a space adventure set in our solar system. This full length novel (388 print pages) is a mix of action adventure and space opera.

Earth is dead, destroyed by a barrage of meteors. What was left of the population has escaped to Mars and colonized it as humanities new home.

Lunara, a small colony on Earth’s moon, is charged with catching and mining meteors for desperately needed minerals. But the deep-seated human thirst for domination is not easily defeated, nor is the capacity for deceit and betrayal. All it needs is a powerful catalyst, a prize valuable enough to risk plunging mankind into another destructive war.

Parker McCloud and his friends, Seth and Chloe, are caught up in a violent series of events when Lunara is invaded. On Mars, Parker, Seth, Chloe, and the crew of the Protector attempt to sort out who is responsible, where the tide of suspicion swings back and forth between Aethpis and Zephyria.

In the end, we see barbarism by the leaders of Mars, great courage by the crew of the Protector, and immense valor by the military on Lunara in adventure one in an exciting new series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting Story With a Few Faults January 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author has written an intricate and often very captivating plot. The battle scenes are exciting, as are some of the individual missions of the main characters. Science and technology are generally pretty good by today's standards, but have a few glaring holes: The plot centers around a very unique substance, which is never really described except by some fragmented and not very convincing dialogue by various characters. The condition of the Earth is key to the story, yet the reason for this condition was never really described in the text, (maybe in a previous book in the series?). Some of the technology is not very plausible, including winged fighters and "sonic projectiles" in vacuum and a "napalm" grenade to knock down a blast door. The story starts a lot of sub-plots and doesn't resolve most of them until very late in the story. A few important ones are never resolved. The ending is apparently set up for sequels.

Some of the characters are given actions and dialogue that are very inconsistent with the seriousness of the situation that they are in. Dialogue sometimes comes across as stilted and trivial, (for example, the excessively repetitive use of the word "smirk", even in dire situations.) If this were corrected, it would greatly improve the entire tone of the plot. There are a lot of characters to keep track of and sometimes it is hard to keep up with all of their backgrounds. There are a few cases where an incorrect sound-alike word is substituted for another in the text (e.g., "all for not" instead of "all for naught").

All in all an entertaining story, even with the limitations, especially since it is free.

One formatting issue in the Kindle edition: capital U showing up inside words sporadically.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Rounded, Enjoyable SciFi September 4, 2011
Format:Paperback
For a reader who reads more dystopian style and virus related science fiction, I found Lunara: Seth and Chloe to be a pleasant surprise. While I found it difficult to feel the urgency the character's felt in the beginning, I was quickly swept along by the story and finding myself thoroughly engaged by the characters, in the end cheering the good guys, booing the bad guys, and generally caring about their outcomes. The character's reactions were believable and relatable for a story set in space with realistic ideals of what humanity can accomplish as the background setting.

The plot came across as being thought through, but without the reader having to see the effort, creating a story that can grab the reader with plenty of intrigue, a dash of conspiracy, and a fast pace, something of which made me want to find out what happens next.

Wyatt Davenport has the ability to balance action, plot twists, and characterisation together so you can enjoy the story from different sides all at the same time. Lunara: Seth and Chloe is a light science fiction story, which can be enjoyed by die hard sci-fi geeks, someone new to the genre, or a reader who prefers only to dip their toes in.

2.0 out of 5 stars It Had Potential April 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Lunara: Seth and Chloe, well, I had high hopes for this book, the first in a series but, it left me disappointed almost from start of chapter 1 to the finish at chapter 41. I say almost from start to.. but that wasn't true. There was something about the book as I read that I just couldn't put my finger on and it wasn't until about the fourth or fifth chapter that I suddenly realised what it was that was making it difficult, it was the writing style!

Did you know that in 1820 Sir Walter Scott wrote one of his grandest opus's, Ivanhoe and that it was over 179,000 words in length? He of course had an excuse for being so verbose, as that is how the English language was back in those days, it was exact. Time moved on as did language and if we all spoke perfect, grammatically correct English it would take most of our day just to have a simple conversation. It's the same with written English, if it is written in precise grammatical sentences it becomes unwieldy, a burden and a chore to the reader.... Now there are papers, legal documents, written laws passed by government, etc., that I suppose require to be grandiose in their language, although I fail to see why, but they are. But, a modern book or novel, no, not unless of course it is a specific text book for learning and is required in that format. But a work of fiction no, it doesn't do it for me. Just as Ivanhoe isn't doing it for some in today's modern world and so it is being abridged down to 80,000 words to make it more readable for today's consumer, link here.

Lunara_ Seth and Chloe has been written in the same fashion as Ivanhoe. The grammar is so precise with no contractions, or very few, that I could see and while the story had merit it just made the whole book rather tedious.

2.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't get past the language issues May 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This sounded like an interesting read during the free book thing on Twitter.

And now I'm glad I didn't pay anything for it.

I couldn't get past the grammar, spelling, and general poor language usage. Every sentence seems poorly structured and awkward.

For example:
"Against the fleeting light let in by the setting sun, dimmed and cascading over the upper half of his rough face, agitation wore across the man."

I... I don't actually know what that sentence means. It's setting up a description of the man's face, and I'm guessing he's supposed to be agitated, since that word is in the sentence, but how does agitation wear a face? What is against the fleeting light? How is the sun letting in light at all since it's the source of the light? Wouldn't the windows let the light in? And how is the sunlight dimmed?

Honestly, I couldn't tell you about plot, world-building, or much else because I couldn't continue slogging through the sentences. It was so jarring to read, I couldn't focus on anything but the individual sentences.

And, in case you think I'm being too harsh, here's another one that isn't terribly confusing, just awkward:

"Out of the corner of his blue eyes, a streak, long and narrow, darted across the sky into his view."

It seems odd that the color of his eyes is a part of this sentence. Obviously, the author wanted to slip in some descriptive details about the character, but it seems out of place. It distracts from the actual interesting part of the sentence, that there is something in the sky. Additionally, it seems redundant to say "Out of the corner of his eye" and then finish with "Into his view". It's already in his view at the beginning of the sentence. That's why he noticed it.
