Young navigator Zhendar, who will later become Lutnalind and use the name LX, is assigned to an undercover mission to infiltrate and study the vicious cannibalistic Ksarrichis. They are preparing to devastate yet another planet and its inhabitants, the Daxons, to steal the resources needed on their depleted planet Ksarr.
While Xhartan navigators are strictly forbidden to interfere and are admonished to only observe and report back (and try to remain alive!), Zhendar must constantly fight his own conscience not to save the victims of the maniacal Ksarrichis. A young Dax woman will grab hold of his heart strings, though, and not let go. That’s when Zhendar decides to part with his navigator training, and use his healing gifts and calling of the elements to try to save the Daxons from utter annihilation.
G. G. Atcheson’s ability to step outside the box and transport her readers into her vividly descriptive scenes is profound.
This book contains many scenes of violence and sex, though it does draw thought-provoking parallels to our own “human” view of the cosmos, the possibility of alien societies and that we might treat them as far less than human. Something you may “not” want to consider when on some lonely starry night you find yourself being teleported to the mothership to be probed by gnarly gray ant creatures.
This book takes place well before the events in Fate, but this is the time period LX talks about: the time spent aboard the brutal warship of the Ksarr people. As such, this is something of a dark read. There are parts that were emotionally difficult, and some parts that I admit had me saying, "Ew! Yuck!"
But a good book makes you feel and doesn't always promise those feelings will be nice. This is a good book. It made me think. Loved it.
Matter of fact Zhendar himself though the essence of good permeates through him and he is constantly in turmoil between rules and his own well being, seems to mostly ignore what is right at least by my standards (which might not be 'right' either). Not that he doesn't make correct choices but without that love of the character which I'm sure comes from later books it's hard to love anyone in this book and if you do prepare to be heart broken.
So why did I enjoy this book sooo much: If you loved the original Star Trek show (the aliens, world views and action) and have any appreciation of Anime (especially darker ones) you will like this book. It is fast pace nonstop action, I am a slow reader and I read it in basically a week. This book shows Zhendar's (Alex, LX) birth of strength, understanding and power, the way to use it and way to look at the world.
Ask yourself,(using a currently Popular Anime) did you enjoy and understand the reasons for last two episodes of "Tokyo Ghoul" season one. If Yes, READ THIS BOOK! You won't be disappointed.
