This is a complex sic-fi story that includes machines, cyborgs and humans and the dark side of life as they try to live alongside each other. We get a violet world with revolution and violence bubbling on the surface. This is an exciting and thought provoking piece of old-school sci-fi that you will want to read more than once.

You will never look at Robots in the same light again. Great escapade into our future. And with a cover like that a great movie in the making. Lee hits it out of the ballpark with this one. A MUST READ>>>

Kira Zo is a human female who serves in the army of the alien T'Akon race on the planet Zanath. The human race had spread throughout the galaxy, only to be enslaved by the T'Akons. The aliens turned many humans into cybernetic hybrids to work better for them.

When the story opens, the T'Akons and their hybrids and humans are at war with the Elayan race. Eventually a treaty is signed between the two alien species. Kira however, already angry at the kind of life the aliens have allowed for the humans, becomes enraged when her parents are executed for violating a breeding directive. She then spearheads a Resistance movement against the T'Akons, which enjoys increasing success, until the Elayans themselves decide to return to the fight. As the story ends, even with life for the humans returning to a more free and happy state, Kira wonders if after all their efforts, the humans on the planet have not simply traded one alien overlord for yet another.

Death on Zanath is basically a military "small resistance group fights a larger force" story. As such it might barely warrant being a science fiction story. But the development of the hybrids, how one hybrid helps the Resistance, the society of the T'Akons and that of the Elayans, the state of things back on a nuclear-wasteland ridden Earth, the FTL star-door technology, and the dilemma facing the heroine at the end, bring this novel strongly into the science fiction genre.

Kira is a marvelously written character, although at times she seems simply an always-angry (to the point of reacting to almost every situation that does not go her way with emotion). She is fiercely strong and independent, without a lot of apologizing for being so.

The beginning of the book doesn't prepare you for how the story evolves and then ends up at a place you never expected. Reading this can make you uncomfortable because the main character doesn't play by the rules, but personally, I'm tired of cookie-cutter stories, and this definitely is not one. So if you want a book that's going to take you to several different worlds and situations and make you say "Whoa!" more than once, where you cringe along with the characters, this is the book for you. Constant action, even the reader needs to step back once in a while to catch their breath.

Lee writes on a topic that has survived, unfortunately, throughout all of history. One race/species dominating others, someone rebelling, beating off (sometimes) the opressor(s) after rallying support of others, and turning the situation around only to see it return at the hands of one of the "allies".

This story has good continuity of plot and subplot, great character development, lots of suspence and just enough conflict and violence to make it work. This story presents an historic recurring theme in a new time and expanded setting without being repetitive, keeping ones attention throughout. This might make an interesting movie some day....

The author launches this mystery in a whole new realm. It's a gripping sci-fi mystery and crime thriller rolled into one. Lee Gimenez writes another page-turning tale, this one robot-style. If you like mysteries and sci-fi, it's well worth your time.
