A flashback to 9 years earlier, to the war that wiped out her entire family, all but her sister Mataya and we learn she lost her baby girl, love-of-her-life husband, and parents. The war wiped out her entire city, all but 200 who banned together to rebuild their community. We are invested in Malkia and care about what is will happen to her. The evildoers are several days from her city and she, the leader, has chosen to gather the people and flee. It is a sorrowful departure from the only home she’s known.
The journey to the safe pastures begins and we meet a cast of characters that help propel the story forward. There is a powerful and interesting theme and message about the calm life that was had before the sky people came and brought technology: cars, phones, TV, airplanes, and war. Prior to this people, animals, and nature lived in harmony. It’s a powerful message that bodes poorly of our obsession on earth with stuff/objects and the moving away from community and responsibility for other living forms and nature.
Without retelling the entire story and no spoilers suffice it to say this ambitious first in a series takes the reader on quite the adventure, which includes Dragons, castles, large cages filled with people, prison, special gifts and abilities in the protagonist. The surprise and emotionally charged ending helps to clarify some unclear points in the beginning, for Malkia and the reader, and sets up the story line to progress into the sequel.
Like many complex characters, she is conflicted, finding herself torn between her love for her new family and the powerful but mysterious attraction feels toward Damon, the ruthless leader of the savages, who becomes obsessed with Malkia and is determined to capture her at all costs. There is little doubt about where her true loyalties lie, but the reader can't help but wonder if her mysterious attraction to Damion will affect her judgment and pose a threat to the group.
The story is a page-turner. It flows from one page to the next. It has everything a science fiction/fantasy fan could hope for: imaginative worlds, fascinating mythical creatures, ruthless villains who will stop at nothing to get what they want and strong heroic characters who must use their incredible powers to overcome incredible odds. Highly recommended!
