Qeya is stuck on a mining ship after her royal family was forced from their home world. Though she and her brother are next in line to lead their people, she's essentially baby sitting until the ship is attacked and they crash land on a new world. Now she and the children must put their years of training to use to survive, with no more than the help of a "filthy" miner.
The wold building is fantastic, plot compelling, and characters interesting and (especially in the case of the children) highly entertaining. Jennifer Silverwood is an author to watch.
Ok ok so I read this is when I was done my initial thought was -- that was it? Alright don't go all coo coo cachoo on me, I meant that in a good way as in -- I wanted more! It was a shorter story than I expected but throughout the whole thing I kept thinking -- Wow this is awesome. I should stop reading before I finish this in an hour -- then I would take a break that consisted of half a minute then I would be back to reading this beautiful read.
Qeya is what they call a `hunan', and is basically on the run with her family and other members of her race from whoever took over her home planet. While they drift along in space Qeya does her duty which is to teach and prepare the younger ones. One day while upon the deck a group of Miner appear and try to warn Qeya's father that something is wrong however he chooses to ignore them.
After the Miners leave Qeya decides to take matters into her own hands. She goes to the lower deck where she - a royal - dare not to go. While she is there, the ship is attacked and she is saved by one of the young Miners, Ohre. They soon crash land upon an alien planet with only little survivors.
Even though the story was somewhat short I felt the author put a lot of information in to the point when it ends your like -- NOOOOO. Then you wind up wanting more.
I also loved the way the way the story was told, each little detail may not have been huge but it was described so well. Kinda like watching a movie in your head -- if that even makes sense.
Qeya is one of those characters that hard not to like. She puts everything and everyone before herself. She is willing to do anything to keep her people safe and secure. When she met Ohre, there seemed to be a bond that started to from between the two which is frowned upon by her people, being that she was a royal and he a Miner. But yet Ohre was different to her, special in a way.
Overall a really great read and I enjoyed being able to read this Qeya's story. It was wonderfully written!
Thanks for reading and happy reading!
I am open for book recommendations and reviews.
It's gripping!! Just when I was worried I might start to get bored, the author read my mind and fixed that in a jiffy by blowing up a spaceship.
I really liked the gifts these characters have. The sharing memory gift sounds like it would be wonderful and horrible for so many reasons. Although I would enjoy seeing my parents lives, seeing their deaths would be a nightmare.
I really didn't know what to expect when I requested this book, but I thought the cover looked cute, and I'm really a sucker for a cute title. I honestly didn't expect such a well written story.
I would easily recommend this book to any of my fantasy/scifi friends.
This is the first sentence of Qeya, and it should give you an idea of just how fabulous this book is. Qeya is a space-scifi-political-epic survival drama. Those are a lot of ideas for one book, and you'd think that the author would have difficulty keeping the story dynamic and cohesive. False. Qeya sucked me in right from that amazing first sentence and didn't let up.
I loved Qeya as a character; she was smart and actually used her brain, and wasn't afraid to do what she needed to do to keep her people alive. From the very beginning, when she is one of the only people to see the danger for what it is (catastrophic) to the end, when she and the remaining survivors from her ship are stranded on a deadly planet, Qeya remained a strong female character that put the good of her people above her own needs. That is the kind of woman I like to read about!
And the details! They were short, but not lacking for punch. I loved to read about the Miners and the interesting 'hunan' race. And, well, everything.
This book was short- about 71 pages or so. I would have liked to read more, because it was such an interesting story. Otherwise, this is a five star book. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a fast, engaging read.
I got a free copy of Qeya in exchange for an honest review.
