Product Description

Product Description

When the Nevians arrived on the Homeland, they not only demonstrated their military might, they brought with them nearly invisible entities that hungered to feed of the worst of human emotions. The entities particularly lusted after those with exceptional Talent in order to twist it under their control.
Nevian Talents knew how to fight off the Molochs, Talented humans did not. Karra was no more than a child when a Moloch approached her. It offered her the strength to settle the forces that had turned her world into chaos. Such beings usually ignored children, but once this child fully matured, the Moloch who approached her planned to feed off her emotions as she experienced life in all its darkest beauty.
The adult Karra, once she understood what had happened, realized she either needed to find a way to defeat the alien, or allow it to control her and take away all she loved.

About the Author

Heroes are not born. We make choices that define us. Born into an abusive home, Patricia determined to make a better home when she married. She realized as soon as her first child was born that she needed to relearn how to parent. After much reading, trial and error, and advice, she accomplished her goal so well she began to parent other children in her home. That is the background Patricia brings into her stories. Her "children" are heroes, survivors who lived through tough childhoods and went on to become successful adults. Although her work is mainly science fiction, her characters are based on composites of real people who also must live with their decisions. Patricia and her husband, yes, they are still married, live outside of Durango, Colorado, surrounded by national forest, a great environment for a writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw and Powerful 15 July 2012
By LKayH - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Author Patricia Renard Scholes tells a raw and powerful story of a young woman whose homeworld is enslaved. The invaders, the Nevians, dominate and exploit her people, but even worse are the Molochs, non-corporeal beings that control the minds and souls of those who have unusual Talents. Karra herself was so talented that a Moloch took an interest in her as a young child, and has drawn her deeper and deeper into a terrible and beautiful life, where it can feed on her suffering and hatred. Now Karra has a daughter, and Karra will do anything to protect her.

The world-building here is haunting and the characters will stay with you. I highly recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gooooood SciFi 26 May 2014
By Jay - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review I loved the blurb it was well written and definitely made me very interested in the book. The cover on the earc was different than the goodreads which is a little boring. The cover on the version I got had a more scifi vibe but it could have been better.

The book is well written, but not quite what I was expecting after reading the blurb I got the impression that Karra was aware of the entity which inhabits her but she's completely ignorant to it. However that seemed to be a good move on the authors part because the story gets better as she begins to realize that voice in her heard isn't schizophrenia is the entity that's been inhabiting her mind since the day her father was murdered. And boy the story gets better As you read it. Karra has so many enemies I'm almost frustrated at the injustice of it all. In the end Karra realizes she's the one who holds all the power and manages the free herself from the entity named the Molloch.

The book was good definitely scifi and well written. I like the way it ended because although there will probably be more to the story the book fulfilled it's purpose and the writer achieved the task of writing a good novel and it did not feel unfinished.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and Mysterious 26 Dec 2013
By Maggie Joy - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Anyone who enjoys delving into the possibilities of the physical and spiritual will surely enjoy this as much as I did! It kept me coming back for more and hating to put it down when I had to. The author did a great job of describing this fantasy world and the nature of the demons who can get hold of our own world, using deceit to make us into whatever they want. Cant wait to see what happens in the next book and if our heroine can defeat what evil has taken hold of her!
5.0 out of 5 stars A strong voice about a fight between good and evil 1 April 2014

If you like stories of a futuristic and fantasy realms you will love this book. Kara is possessed of a spirit of pure evil but you can see there is love in her that the spirit that possesses her can not completely subdue. Set in a futuristic world where the Nevian's have conquered the human inhabitants and keep them in poor circumstances. A few humans have managed to live in the rich world of the Nivian people but most are controlled and kept in dire straits just trying to survive. Some of the humans work to overthrow the Nivian conquerors as members of the militant resistance organization, the Homelander Front. Kara's journey to survive and live uncontrolled by the Nivian's and the dark entity that is part of her is a deep study into her inner self. She must learn who or what to trust while trying to find a way to be with her only daughter, Chalatta. Even with the things Kara does and goes through you will keep rooting for her to find her way to the right side. A story of redemption.
Sometimes the unusual names for the people and for the physical things around them made me stop reading to think, what does that mean or who is this person, but that is probably just me. I sometimes have trouble with normal names if there is a lot of characters in the story. I got into this story and had to keep reading to see if Kara would make it or not. Now, I want to know more about what happen to the character at this point.
