A strong book about the battle between science and religion without exaggerating either side. A scientist who has a dream he wants to fulfil at seemingly any cost, even when he needs to `break' people for that, meets his match in someone whose resilience is beyond what he can imagine.
The end of this book, which is the first part of the Sherdan series, left me in need of the sequel.
Note of warning to parents: this book is not suited for readers younger than 16, perhaps even 18, as there quite some violence and abuse in the story.
From the beginning I was riveted as Anya was captured and tortured by Sherdan's men while trying to find the book that held the prophecy. Her faith holds strong in her God and she never wavers. Sherdan stops the torture of the his prisoner and while she recovers he tries to convince her to be his queen of this new Utopia. With the gifts his people have, can they make a new and different world? Can he convince Anya the Christian, to live in his world of science? Can Utopia separate from the UK and become their own country or will they be destroyed? There is a growing love between them but can Anya forgive Sherdan's treatment of her? All good questions...
I don't read political intrigue novels and this one kept my attention. I read it all in one day of reading.
I didn't see the end coming, so Surprise! Thank you Jess Mountifield for a great read and I look forward to reading more from you.
The whole idea is nicely developped, also the growing relation between Anya and Sherdan.
The end of the book is still very open, even when one episode is clearly coming to an end there.
Finding the good and the bad guys is not that easy there, idealists are not always thinking about the others...
Looking forward to reading the next book in the series, hoping it won't take too long!
ps. I received a free e-book in return for an honest review, this has in no way influenced the outcome of this text!
I'm probably in the minority of readers, but I didn't like Sherdan. He's a control freak would be a large part of the reason. To tell you the truth, I would have liked to have seen him die. Really liked Anya, she someone I would have liked to meet in real life.
I was provided a review copy.
This is a very intriguing read! I just had to keep reading to see what would happen next especially with Sherdan and Anya and whether or not my mis-trust in Hitchin is well founded!!!
I loved reading as Sherdan managed to secure his "Country"
I was really shocked by Anya leaving the way she did and the fact that I was my right in my thought's concerning Hitchin's!!!
I really can't wait to read the next book in this series to see where Sherdan's and ANya's lives take them and if they will ever be reunited!!!
Sherdan is obviously a highly intelligent man, a scientist who has created a drug, an enzyme designed to trigger special abilities in his 'subjects.' Anya, who sneaks her way into his compound knows of a `prophecy' which immediately causes unrest. She is immediately captured and worse, subjected to two days of torture by his interrogation team. Yet, somehow, she resists by entering a trance-like state - until Sherdan stops the interrogation for reasons even he cannot explain. It appears that Anya is on a higher mission. Yet when Hitchin tells him of a 2nd prophecy, one in which Anya plays a vital part, Sherdan's feelings change and he ultimately wants to protect her.
His over-ambitious 'plan' to establish his own country `Utopia' in which his `subject' reside, angers the British government to an extent where the prime minister calls the troops in. But Sherdan has developed sophisticated defence mechanisms which render their artillery useless. As the story develops, I began to think that Sherdan was not an evil person - a megalomaniac, yes, obsessed with power and trying to play God. Yet he genuinely believes that what he is doing is `good' in trying to create a perfect world. I enjoyed the power play between the two characters. Anya is so sweet and genuinely innocent, she seems almost divine. I could identify with her arguments that a `Utopia' could never exist, due to the corruptible nature of the human mind.
I liked was the gradual change in Sherdan as he began to fall in love with her.Read more ›
