The Daragh Deception is a fast paced, easy read. Even if you aren't into Sci-Fi, Fantasy type of books. You will like this. New beginnings, in new places are always such great reads. I really enjoyed the complexity and the mystery that went along with the two main characters. It gave them a realistic feel. Which helped keep me reading. Waiting to see another layer come off of them as the journey went and the danger became greater.
I received an ARC, this is my honest review. I look forward to the second book!
Her characters are well-developed, her settings are completely believable, and the storylines are compelling. I'm a crazy stickler for grammar and at first read, there were no issues at all. (Or subsequent readings, just saying.) Usually, with self-published books, there is a myriad of errors which drive me bonkers. Her books are clean, well written, edited appropriately, and interesting.
So when the chance came to read a preview of The Daragh Deception, I jumped at the chance. And you guys, I loved it. I wasn't sure -- it was definitely more sci-fi, but it is amazing. Again, Ms. Davidson does not disappoint. Her characters are well-developed, the world in which the story is set is described such that I could easily envision everything that was happening within the book. The storyline is fantastic.
Honestly, I'm excited to read the rest of this series. AND, for those of you who hate to read a series where most of the books end on a cliffhanger, let me just help you out as I despise authors who do that. None of these books end on a cliffhanger. These are all stand-alone stories. Of course reading them all gives you more depth to the world Ms. Davidson has created, but you can read one of the books in the series and be just fine.
Love at first chapter.
Commander Devan Rybeck can be my new book boyfriend.
Seriously, I don't write reviews unless I REALLY dig what the author is putting out there. I'll give stars, but liking a book/author enough to sit and pen a review is rare. (And btw, it's a review. Not a book report, please. If I want a synopsis, I'll read the synopsis of the book graciously provided in the book description.)
ANYWAY, I first became acquainted with Kenley Davidson when I read her Andari Chronicles - also very very good, you should check them out if you haven't already. Shadow & Thorn was my favorite...but Pirouette was pretty wonderful too.
When I saw that she would have a sci-fi/spacey novel, I was intrigued. This is not my usual cup of tea, but Kenley Davidson obviously is.
Could not have been more pleased. The world building is excellent and authentic. I could easily visualize Daragh - I'd even like to visit.
Great character development; I loved being with Emma as she got her spunk back, I loved breaking through the cold shell of Commander Rybeck. Ian - I'd take a book about Ian. Can we have a book about Ian?
You know what else? I didn't like Trina, but by the end, you made me love her. Thank you, Mrs. Davidson!
The plot clipped along at a perfect pace, I started to see where we were going about the same time Emma did, but I loved watching it unfold. Mrs. Davidson has a lovely way of turning a phrase; I fell in love with the quality of her storytelling in the Andari Chronicles and saw no shortage of the same here.
I loved that it was a standalone book (if it was a cliffhanger I was going to die before the next installment came out - but that's a good thing! That's the reaction you want as an author! As painful as it may be to me....but anyway).
Also, it's the Conclave Worlds Book 1 - so there could be more to look forward to? Ian?
All in all - highly recommend. Two thumbs up! An enthusiastic 5 stars! GO READ IT!
