The Song “Turn Down For What” by DJ Snake and Lil Jon comes to mind with this book. It hits the ground running and doesn’t let up.
But I get ahead of myself. Micheal Lee Nelson asked for a review and I said sure. Then sends me the first two chapters to get a feel for the entire novel. First, a synopses:
Desperation is the father of invention.
In the year 2525, Ceres desperately searches for his parents, long held captive among the Galactic’s 500 colony worlds.
When he too is taken, forced to duel to save a slave with powerful secret abilities, he determines to fight his way to the top of the pirate ranks.
Can he justify this within his objective moral code? Will Ceres’ faith, his soul, survive?
As you can tell, this isn’t about Ceres, but a guy name Ceres. I was given the first two chapters to read. Micheal Nelson drops you in the action from line one and doesn’t give you time to really breathe (in a good way).
The first chapter deals with Ceres initial adventure to find his father and drops you in the action. The second chapter is a flashback to Ceres birth and why he was given that name, which is, of course, action packed.
Would I pick up the entire book? Yes, yes I would. If you are looking for a High-Energy Action Sci-Fi, then this is for you. Slam your favorite energy drink and get ready for a ride! Enjoy!
Well, see ya’ later!
