Book Description

The first three books of the Amazon best-selling series!

If you like dark epic fantasy with a sci-fi twist, then you'll love Pearseus.

On New Year's Eve, the year of 2099, the distinguished guests aboard the Pearseus did not get to countdown seconds. Instead, they counted bodies and survivors after the spaceship's crash landing on another planet.

The good news? The planet was seemingly hospitable both in resources and in terms of the natives' attitude towards earthlings.

The bad news? They might have come on this planet bare of possessions, but what they hadn't been able to shed were the shortcomings of their human nature. Will that be the sole threat to a unified future, or is the new land and its first inhabitants not as innocent as they look?

The bundle contains the three first books in the series. Starting 300 years after the events described in the prequel, Pearseus: Schism, they examine what happens when humanity is forced to start over. Again.

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 Amazon.com
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 Epic Adventure with Great Action 30 Mar. 2015
By Diana - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Pearseus trilogy is an epic adventure that chronicles the feats of four protagonists that become embroiled in the complex political and philosophical factions of a multi-dimensional world. Ultimately, they play key roles in saving the planet’s inhabitants from annihilation.

This is one of those tales that balances nicely between science fiction and fantasy. Though many of the beings and events have a fantastical feel to them, they have alien versus magical origins. Earth technology still exists, but is limited and barely understood. I enjoyed the occasional resurfacing of Earth artifacts, wisdom, and colloquialisms.

The overall feel of the trilogy reminded me of Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time series. The sweep of the story is epic in nature and new people, beings, information, technology, and weapons routinely come into play, modifying the scope of the protagonists’ goals and challenges, and upping both the dangers and the means to overcome them.

One of Rossis’s strengths is his meticulous world-building. Pearseus is a planet claimed by three different sets of inhabitants. Refugees from the Earth spaceship, Pearseus, seized the world from the First, who previously usurped it from the native creatures and terraformed it to their liking. This layered history of conquest serves as a major source of contention in the plot. At the same time, Rossis gives the current nations of the globe distinct political and cultural identities with a realistic smattering of political maneuverings, back-door alliances, and betrayals.

The trilogy has quite a bit of philosophical discussion as the varied cultures play against each other. These unhurried moments are interspersed between great action scenes, and they lessen as the plot picks up speed and zooms toward its conclusion. Action descriptions are skillfully done, effortless to follow, and frequently bloody. The main characters and supporting cast are well-rounded, believable, and easy for the reader to identify with. Teo, a despicable power-monger, is particularly engaging and I looked forward to his scenes.

All in all, a great choice for epic fantasy and science fiction readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a highly recommended series 19 July 2014
By Flamingcrystal - Published on Amazon.com
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 Epic 12 Feb. 2015
By Catherine Mackay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a fantastic series this is and can hardly wait for book four. In the first book, Schism, we start off on the spaceship, Pearseus and after a catestrophic accident the survivors find themselves on a nearby planet that they name for their lost ship. What I loved about these three books was the author's ability to weave in ancient Greek mythos,cultural and historic influences; it felt like ancient Greece, complete with warring city-states but set on a far-away planet. The characters felt vivid and memorable, including the creepy and scary Fallen, the honourable general, Parad and the enigmatic First are only some of the characters brought to life within the pages of this book. This book is done on an epic scale too - in the background, with humans largely unaware, is the war between the Whispers and the Orbs. The Whispers feature strongly as an influencing force in many of the tragic events that the people of Pearseus find themselves a part of - they are masters of manipulation and finding the weaknesses in humans. Equally, the Orbs are powerful but dwindling and the war with the Whispers is not going well for them and their supporters, the First. So if you really like healthy doses of science, fantasy, magic,tragedy, memorable characters both the good and the bad, an exciting writing style that never bores and has very few editing errors, a complex and well drawn universe, then these books are definitely for you.
