Teenager Randle Dobs lives with his father, Len, on an earth decimated by drought and pollution where mankind has regressed to a time before law and order. But Len Dobs was a moral man who raised his son following the “old ways”, before the apocalypse that left man barely better than savages. When his father dies Randle is left to fend for himself.
What follows the death of Len is an exciting adventure that leaves Randle exploring new worlds. His father’s teachings stay with him and he maintains the dignity he was taught. Finding himself in another world Randle begins to assimilate in the strange world of the Luxon’s. From the moment he awakens his life is changed dramatically. Learning the ways of the Luxon, adjusting to their different appearance, Randle soon becomes part of their society.
Mitchell has created a fascinating tale of courage, tragedy, friendship, and even romance. The characters in the book are as real as your next-door neighbor. There are friends and enemies, kind people and people who would easily cut your throat in the pursuit of glory. The author’s grasp of military maneuvers is amazing. He sets battle scenes that are so realistic you can practically hear the roar of cannons and smell the smoke of burning vehicles.
This is an exciting book with a solid plot and the potential to be the beginning of a series. I look forward to reading more books by Charles Mitchell.

(I heard from a little bird after I wrote my review that Mr. Mitchell is working on continuing this story, which makes me happy. So it really should be HFN: Happily For Now)
Randel: Human boy
Jiesal: Luxon Woman (Alien)
Well, I’d like to start off by saying this novel is not one you will be able to read during your lunch break. This fun, creative, action pack Sci-Fi is roughly 120,000+ words, about 400 pages. It will definitely keep you entertained through the entire story.
This novel can be broken up while reading into three parts. I have to admit that the first part has a sad moment that almost had me in tears. Also in the first part, there is a section that I had a hard time reading (due to the content matter, a bit dark) you’ll know it when you read this novel.
The second part was the most action packed, intergalactic battles as well as war on the planets. I don’t want to give too much away and spoil it so I will just say the war/battles scenes are where you really get a sense of Mr. Mitchell’s strengths. I’m so glad there are several throughout the entire story. I’d have to say they are my favorite part of this story.
The last part of this story is where I feel Mr. Mitchell focused the most on relationships. Not just between Randel and Jiesal, but all the characters…between Son and Fathers, between best friends, and so much more. Mr. Mitchell does a great job in concluding this story. It does end with an HEA at the very last second.
I will add, I WANT SOME NANO BOTS! You’ll understand why when you read this novel! I really enjoyed the science aspect of this story too.
For me, I found that I was unable to predict anything that happened. I found that to be surprising and there are some plot twist that have you asking, WTF? It’s really good!
So, I do recommend this novel for reading. You will be very entertained and may even get you thinking about our world as it is now and what the future of Earth might be!
