Watership Down it ain't. It's a futuristic story with the humans (Danog) and intelligently evolved animals who call themselves Tsaeb (beast spelled backwards) and they all live together in semi cooperation. After the strong prologue the first chapter was a little confusing, I didn't understand whether I'd been reading about a battle or a dream that Syl had. It also had a lot of characters. And I have to admit I did struggle with the sample and put the book down several times, but the original concept of evolved animals (humans came from primates, so why not a human type person evolving from rabbits, or other animals?) made me pick it up and persevere. And I'm glad I did. I thought I was reading a child's book until I got to part one and then something sinister began to take place (Dean Koontz took over the writing - or so it seemed!), the writing and storyline really heated up!
The Tsaeb stopped becoming 'silly little animals' and became REAL people. People I could relate to and like. In part one a spider called Lactella was able to control a Danog by sinking its fangs into the flesh and injecting venom.Read more ›
Rogers has a large, well developed cast of very diverse characters that stay clear and well defined throughout the novel. Also, even though he has a large number of characters, no one gets bumped to the wayside as the story progresses. I appreciate the fact that this cast has characters of all ages. Rogers doesn't keep himself to any particular age range. Everyone has a chance to prove themselves in this novel.
Overall, this unique novel is fun for all ages. It hooks you from the beginning, pulling you through this fun tale that will leave you with a smile.
Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This was a really unusual read! For one thing the Tsaeb are descended from animals which I was not expecting from simply reading the synopsis. I found it took me a while to get into it as I was thrown by this revelation and then uncertain about the tone being set. I wasn't sure what age-range it was aimed at as it felt like a strange choice of characters for an adult novel yet the way it was written seemed a bit complex and serious for children.
Part two was where the book really captured my interest with a very interesting and creative choice of villain. I was hooked at this point and the story started to fall into place for me. I started to notice a hint of humour in places and I found myself not wanting to put the book down. It's not just an adventure story either, there are serious environmental issues highlighted with the animals pointing them out to the oblivious humans.
Overall this was an enjoyable read, and quite thought-provoking in places. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys fantasy and has an interest in environmental issues.
