Book Description

"Pearseus does for ancient Greece what Game of Thrones did for Medieval England."
The first three books of the Amazon genre best-selling series

Three hundred years after humans crash land on Pearseus, Styx, the Capital's cruel ruler, learns of a dark prophecy: Cyrus, a young boy, will one day slay her. She imprisons him, but days before his execution he escapes with the help of the First, the planet's native inhabitants. On their way to safety, nightmarish monsters attack. Cyrus flees, scared and alone, until a pair of First warriors rescue him and spirit him away to the mysterious Old Woman. 

All Cyrus wants is to reunite with his family. But the Old Woman insists Cyrus is the foretold instrument in the First's ancient war against a shadowy enemy who will stop at nothing to prevent  him from fulfilling his destiny. Heart and mind war within Cyrus as he learns he must choose between his family and preventing humanity's extinction.  

The bundle contains the three first books in the series.

Note: The original version of this bundle contained the prequel, Pearseus: Schism. The new version contains Rise of the Prince, Mad Water and Vigil.

4.0 out of 5 stars An epic sci-fi and fantasy series 19 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This box set is a bundle containing the first three books in the Pearseus series:- Year 18: The Schism, Rise of the Prince, and Mad Water. The third book does not finish the series, and is left very open ended. ... The author says on his website that Book Four is on the way soon!

This is an epic fantasy series, that has strong tones of science fiction, as well as Greek myth. What a feast.

Book One opens with an explosion on spaceship Pearseus, and the escape pods land on a new planet that the settlers name Pearseus. Shortly after, there is an encounter with one of the natives: a First. Due to the confusion of one of the captains, this doesn't go well, and the First move away from the humans over time. 18 years after landing, a schism develops amongst the survivors.

Books Two and Three span a further 300 years, and show the political intrigues and upheavals that beset the settlers. There is more to the planet than the humans had at first realised, and they have to deal with the "Whispers", the "Orbs", and the "Fallen", to name but a few.

The plot, pacing, character development, and world building are all done very well. The book would benefit from a further proofread, as there are words and punctuation missing in places, and also extra words in others. Some of the sentence constructions are clumsy, and delaying action with "started to/began to" is overused. The writing is passive in places, but on the whole is tight.

I found this an easy read, and very entertaining. The book held my attention throughout, and by the last quarter of the novel I really cared what happened next. There are many threads expertly woven throughout the tale, which all add to the enjoyment of the read. Book Three doesn't tie any of them off, but leaves them loose ... so now I am avidly awaiting the release of Book Four.

Readers of sci-fi and fantasy will love this series, and I can heartily recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars the story of a world not a hero 24 Sept. 2014
By Loren Weaver - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Book One: Schism
In the not so distant future, a space ship crash lands on a far away planet. It seems like an accident, or was it? However they got here, the survivors from Pearseus are left to set up a new civilization, if they can work together. And for a while, they do.

But the possession that seems to have brought them here is never so far away. And the whisper in the dark just adds to an already corrupt human nature... right? So when everything crashes, the civilization splits ... and we have the schism that creates Pearseus.

Schism is a shorter book that opens up the world and sets the stage for the drama that is about to unfold on the new planet Pearseus.

Book Two: Rise of the Prince
Three hundred years have passed since that first split that created distinct empires on the new planet Pearseus, not to mention the native First. But the whispers in the dark never did go away.

There's now three main Newcomer factions, plus the First. Not to mention the shadow war between the Orbs and the Whispers. We meet characters from each of these places as they struggle to keep the peace, stay alive, and win wars. Leadership changes, friendships are born, and battles won.

Rise of the Prince isn't a story about a single character or hero, but the story of a world struggling to find peace. The dynamics and alliances are constantly changing, and through it all, we have to decide for ourselves who's in the right and who's not.

Book Three: Mad Water
Cyrus now rules in the Capitol, but the wars aren't over. Less and less in the shadows, the history of the battle between the Orbs and the Whispers comes into dramatic light. Not to mention the Iota, another native species from time almost unremembered.

Some of our heroes are dead, and the next generation is left to take their place. But the battle isn't so straightforward, and our new leaders must find their own balance in the world. Alliances and declarations of war aren't so simple anymore, because first each person must determine for themselves exactly what it is they fight for.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a highly recommended series 19 July 2014
By Flamingcrystal - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Almost from the beginning, it amazed me. The cruelty of Styx moved me to tears, as did the subsequent feelings of suspense, relief and shock as the story unfolded and the ending drew closer. This is a highly recommended series of books, that I couldn't put down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended! 18 Aug. 2014
By MariaM - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the three books in the Pearseus series, and I'm not a big sci-fi/fantasy fan. But these books offer so much! Are you a history buff? Test yourself, deciphering the amazing analogies presented here. Do you appreciate philosophy? Existentialism and a Cartesian outlook are expertly woven into the stories. Are those aspects too profound, and you're looking for hot action and fleshed-out relatable characters? Stay put. Are you skeptical, thinking that those fantasy tales spread themselves too thin in plots and sub-plots? (I usually am.) The author here has placed each character's point of view in a separate short chapter, so that you can follow the story and the character's thoughts clearly, eliminating confusion. Oh, and the writing is excellent!

All in all, I highly recommend this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll have to read all of them at once! 14 Aug. 2014
By Georgios Giaglis - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Pearseus is an interesting mix. On the surface it is:
-a fantasy epic with fight scenes, swords, armies, tactics, allies and betrayal, scheming and hidden agendas
-a science fiction world with a space ship, e-libs, ray-guns and aliens

and underneath it is a thought-provoking tale combining
-eastern philosophy with ancient greek history,
-human emotions and (flawed) human behavior with moral dilemmas and difficult decisions.

Each book builds on its previous one, as the story unfolds itself. Once you start reading, there is no going back! You'll have to finish all of them!
Its only flaw: the series is not finished yet (at least, not at the time I write this review). On the other hand, we have more excitement to look forward to!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reading 27 Dec. 2014
By John Maberry - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Don't be fooled by the bargain price for the three-book bundle on Kindle, the Pearseus series is worth much more. Thankfully not quite as complicated as George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire," there are still enough characters and factions--that continue to develop as the series progresses, to keep you occupied. It kept me turning the virtual pages. I can only hope the fourth book in the series comes out soon because now I really want to know what happens! If you like fantasy or sci fi, you should like this.
