Also, why do authors need 16 books to tell a story. Tolkien is one of the best, and he only took 3 (maybe 4 depending how you count). When there are too many books, I lose interest.
When the time comes for Senya to be brought to court, he is nowhere to be found. Eventually, the royal guards locate him running wild in the slums surrounding the orphanage, and have to attempt to “civilize” him for life as the Crown Prince of both halves of the planet, and the real story begins.
It’s an amazing story, of love and jealousy and betrayal (the man who would have inherited the throne were it not for the protagonist is the chief bad guy here, unfortunately made a negative gay stereotype by the author).
There is also a strange love relationship— Senya as a young teenager develops a close bond, including first sexual experiences for both, with a slightly younger girl... on our Earth! Although she can see, hear, and (definitely) feel him, he’s invisible to anyone else. It’s the Earth of some 75 or a hundred years from now, and she dreams of going to the Academy and joining the Space Corps to explore strange new planets— it’s easy to see where it may end up.
This is the first book of the series, and if the author can maintain its quality, it’ll be one of those series that get frequently reread. [The clichéd evil gay prince lost it a star, though.]
I like the scene descriptions, the little bits of history given here and there, enough to make depth without getting sidetracked and boring.
I have to keep myself from thinking "but why doesn't he just..." or I will ruin the story. Don't worry so much about his motivations, just go with it.
My one big strike against this book is that here we had this great story about these two societies and then suddenly, out of the blue, the author brings earth into it.
WTF? WHY does there need to be a tie to earth? If another society is needed, why not something else? I really do not like the tendency of so many authors to feel like they must somehow tie Earth into their otherwise totally self contained worlds.
It is also an incredibly sexist book, reading that doesn' t bother me so much but I can think of a number of my friends who would not be able to read it because of that.
The past and future of two peoples are resting on the shoulders of one person. With so many people, whole planets, depending on him Sanjay must find the strength to endure what his enemies do to him on his home world and on a prison planet in the same star system. He gains his strength from his fated mate who lives across the galaxy on Earth. His ability to travel in a metaphysical way, to change shape, to see the past and the future, and to read minds are powers that are balanced by physical blindness. His royal blood and his powers don't protect him from terrible injuries and neither can those people who love him.
I am looking forward to reading the second book. I am eager to see what fate, and the author, have in store for the characters in this series.
