This is the first instalment of the Dark Escape series.

This novel is interesting, it isn't quite Sci-fi and it isn't quite Fantasy, it's more a hybrid born of both worlds. But even though it doesn't sit firmly in either genre, I would still classify it as an epic, with maybe a toe hovering over the Steampunk world depending on which direction the Author takes the other books.

The characters are well thought out, and nicely developed with there being not one, but two main leads; a male and a female. The male lead is quite likeable and full of all the characteristics we would expect of a person of his position; unfortunately the female lead is his total opposite and, at times made me think of Sansa in the Game of Thrones series.

The descriptions in the novel are sweeping and epic, setting the scenes nicely for what will come in the future, and raises questions in the reader's mind that I hope will be answered as the series progresses. However, there were a few images I found a little too fantastical even for me, and this did detract from the overall feel of this novel

As with all first instalments it is hard to say whether or not the remainder will be a success, as the Author is just getting his breath and setting off on his journey with his characters and in their world. Personally, I would like to see the Author add some elements of Steampunk into his later works, as I feel this would add an extra dimension to the series, and really make it well worth the readers' time.

I would highly recommend this book to Teens/YA and adult readers alike, and also to those lovers of the sci-fi and fantasy genre. This is a quick read that moves along at a steady pace, and doesn't need to be over thought, so ideal when you're travelling.

This book was great. It has romance, suspense, adventure and has humor in it. I liked how it was so descriptive on the elements of the world they lived in. Their world is so much like ours but at the same time, it has differences. I am glad the author put a map in, it made it much easier for me to visualize the cities that were talked about in the book. This book was very enjoyable and unpredictable. I look forward to the next book and see the outcome of this story. Definitely recommended for young adults.

I thought this book was very exciting to read. It held my interest and I found myself having trouble puting it down even though my eyes were burning at times, I had a desire to continue reading. Great plot, good love story twist to it, and a lot of action. I want to see more stories from this author.

First, I want to say that I won this book in a contest.

The story takes place in a medieval time similar to ours, but on a planet where there is no darkness, which makes it difficult to classify. Who cares? I loved the book! It has everything from love to adventure and most importantly for me, likeable characters. Although written with teen and young adults in mind, the plot has enough twists and turns to appeal to people of all ages. Aaron Gee has a way with words; he can make you feel as if you are standing in the majestic sceneries along with the protagonists. I would recommend the book to anyone who is looking for a good entertainment in an easy read.
