"...A well-developed scifi story with extensive world-building...It is evident how much time and effort the author put into his first novel..." - ohpaperpages.blogspot.com
Top Customer Reviews
Some of the characters are given actions and dialogue that are very inconsistent with the seriousness of the situation that they are in. Dialogue sometimes comes across as stilted and trivial, (for example, the excessively repetitive use of the word "smirk", even in dire situations.) If this were corrected, it would greatly improve the entire tone of the plot. There are a lot of characters to keep track of and sometimes it is hard to keep up with all of their backgrounds. There are a few cases where an incorrect sound-alike word is substituted for another in the text (e.g., "all for not" instead of "all for naught").
All in all an entertaining story, even with the limitations, especially since it is free.
One formatting issue in the Kindle edition: capital U showing up inside words sporadically.
The plot came across as being thought through, but without the reader having to see the effort, creating a story that can grab the reader with plenty of intrigue, a dash of conspiracy, and a fast pace, something of which made me want to find out what happens next.
Wyatt Davenport has the ability to balance action, plot twists, and characterisation together so you can enjoy the story from different sides all at the same time. Lunara: Seth and Chloe is a light science fiction story, which can be enjoyed by die hard sci-fi geeks, someone new to the genre, or a reader who prefers only to dip their toes in.
-The beginning is slow but if you read through it, the story picks up rather nicely.
-Seth is a bit irritating at times while Chloe doesn't get as much exposure as I think she deserves.
However, that could be just me. I think the story is solid, the settings and the premise are interesting and the the writer shows great promise for crafting an entertaining Sci-Fi tale. Do give it a try.
And now I'm glad I didn't pay anything for it.
I couldn't get past the grammar, spelling, and general poor language usage. Every sentence seems poorly structured and awkward.
"Against the fleeting light let in by the setting sun, dimmed and cascading over the upper half of his rough face, agitation wore across the man."
I... I don't actually know what that sentence means. It's setting up a description of the man's face, and I'm guessing he's supposed to be agitated, since that word is in the sentence, but how does agitation wear a face? What is against the fleeting light? How is the sun letting in light at all since it's the source of the light? Wouldn't the windows let the light in? And how is the sunlight dimmed?
Honestly, I couldn't tell you about plot, world-building, or much else because I couldn't continue slogging through the sentences. It was so jarring to read, I couldn't focus on anything but the individual sentences.
And, in case you think I'm being too harsh, here's another one that isn't terribly confusing, just awkward:
"Out of the corner of his blue eyes, a streak, long and narrow, darted across the sky into his view."
It seems odd that the color of his eyes is a part of this sentence. Obviously, the author wanted to slip in some descriptive details about the character, but it seems out of place. It distracts from the actual interesting part of the sentence, that there is something in the sky. Additionally, it seems redundant to say "Out of the corner of his eye" and then finish with "Into his view". It's already in his view at the beginning of the sentence. That's why he noticed it.Read more ›

I think the book has potential. I don't want to completely pan it, and I DID actually finish reading it.

Very different concept and view of what would happen if earth was no more. Very action packed throughout this whole book. Crazy how Cloe's father was to her. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Virginia
This book was just boring.
I was never really interested in characters, their fate, or adventures.
The pace was much to slow for me slow.
Good book overall but a little misleading in detail. What I mean is the author keeps stressing the powers of Seth and Chloe but they rarely exhibit their powers. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Dave
