As a huge fan of classics such as '1984' and 'Brave New World', I am always on the lookout for new authors who share with us their creative vision of a future world. To this end, I have had some disappointment over the years with novels that come with an excellent premise and much promise but in my opinion, the authors generally fail to fully realise their ideas and leave me noticing gaps and shortfalls rather than enjoying the book. Of course even "The Hunger Games" has such a strong premise, but the opportunity to flesh it out with more political references, and more backstory was limited by its genre of Teenage Fiction

You will NOT be disappointed in this way by Primae Noctis. In fact you will be refreshingly in awe of the level of intelligent detail contained in the future world. Not only is the world's current situation full of imagination and intelligence, the backstory is also fully explained.

Aimery Thomas has succeeded in addressing every facet of the the modern future world. This includes sexuality and relationships; vocation, leisure and entertainment; spirituality and philosophy, food and beverages, a vast array of technology and warfare, and of course the all-encompassing, all-powerful new political structure.

In addition, the characters are strong and likeable and the story is compelling with lots of twists and turns to keep you interested and yearning to know what happens next.

My only tiny critism of this book is that I did get lost in some of the scientific detail. But that is more a comment on my lack of knowledge in this area rather than of the book itself. After all, it IS science fiction, and science is there in abundance.

An important note: This book has been published independently.

And I just can't. Maybe it's because the writing is too pretentious. I'm about 33% into it and don't give a rat's behind about any other the characters -- and I don't believe any of it. Life is just too short to spend on this (and I really hoped I'd like it since the premise is so interesting!)

So, Primae Noctis. The title itself caught my attention. The book sounded interesting to read, I thought.

... Unfortunately, while the story itself is good, save for the ending. The ending repeated itself something like 10 times? I don't know, I didn't keep an accurate count, but it pissed me off because it made me think there was something wrong with my Kindle.

But no, it's the story. I've knocked it down two stars for that. Too aggressive? Maybe, but that's my opinion and I am sticking to it.

There are writers that can capture depictions of a future society but there are very few that are able to look outside the boundaries of our consensual reality and can accurately render a realistic portrayal of humanities existence after a major catastrophe. Author Aimery Thomas does just that in the first in a series of what is truly a sweeping epic. Characters and multilayered plots unveil themselves with exceptional attention to detail as the plight of humanity swings in the balance and the reader is caught up in a sense of urgency that makes it almost impossible to put this book down.

This is huge story and was a lengthy read. Initially the plot started slow, but picked up about halfway through the novel. I enjoyed the rich, complex world-building of Archonae. In the beginning, the reader gained the perspective of life from those living in Archonae and then slowly the viewpoint shifted to outsiders' perspective of this civilization. With this change of context came large revelations. I found the descriptions of the various aspect of daily life interesting and the big reveals enjoyably shocking. Thomas did a wonderful job building tension and shifting perspectives.

I struggled with the characters. At times some of them seemed to be caricatures or stereotypes (and there were many characters---although it didn't feel like too many). However, I became fans of Nan Allegra Prospero, and Jones.

This novel was a great start to an interesting story line. I am looking forward to see how it unfolds as Thomas continues to tell it in the next book.
