Then Nixon twists the story again and we go from heroic fantasy adventure to full blown space exploration and adventure – with Tiva still acting as our main character. It sounds a little odd, but honestly Nixon pulls it off. Her writing style pulls you in and keeps you committed to the story and characters. The story never feels like it has any padding, and she manages the pacing with great skill.
I had a couple of minor issues. There are a lot of character names thrown at you in this story and I started to get them a bit confused. The brisk pacing works great in most aspects, but sometimes it moved so fast that I didn’t get a real feel for some of the supporting characters. This would reflect my issue with remembering their names as they showed up later. I also feel that Tiva is a little too perfect sometimes. Even her character flaw of stubbornness turns out to be a benefit most of the time.
But these are minor complaints and didn’t harm my enjoyment of the book in the least. In fact when I finished the first novel I really couldn’t wait to pick up and find out what happened to Tiva next. That is the biggest compliment I can give an author for her series. So I certainly recommend this series (both books are great reads) to anyone looking for something fresh and engaging in the fantasy/sci-fi genres.
If you enjoy reading a unique Sci-fi fantasy then Tiva Boon is for you.
That baby grows up to be Tiva Boon, daughter of a long line of Guardians to the King. Tiva is ambitious and tenacious and becomes the first female Guardian, the most elite of the king’s protectors. Over time, as Tiva rises through the ranks, a growing rebellion sweeps Abennelp. Tiva is willing to fight to the death for her king, who takes a special in her. The reader knows why even if Tiva never learns.
Jenn Nixon tells a story in three parts, beginning with Tiva on Abennelp. The the kingdom falls and alien influence becomes clear, she flees to another world that adopts her and helps her join the Union, an intergalactic entity that spans galaxies but only has a handful of member worlds.
The series has been described as Game of Thrones meets Star Trek, but the novel has a YA feel. If it has a shortcoming, it’s that the space opera elements do not really enter the story until about halfway through. Beyond that, Tiva is a compelling protagonist, and Nixon lays enough eggs to hatch later on in the series. This is one worth watching.
This is a really great book. I will admit I had a hart time getting use to the language at first because it was old world but once I was use to it it only added to the book and its characters. while reading you get attached to each of the charterers and feel for them. so of course I cried like a big baby when Tiva's significant died in her arms and cried even harder when she wiped him from her memory and every one just played along with it. And I will admit that I was super pissed when Tiva lost all her family! I mean as if her man aint enough she has to lose he mother and both fathers and everybody in her life. But It only made me what to read book 2 and see where the Heck Miss Nixon was gonna take this. but it was an over all great book. Thanks a bunch for writing it. It was very much enjoyed! <3
