Product Description

Product Description

When Queen Tassin Alrade of Arlin is forced to flee her kingdom on the backwater planet of Omega Five, she has no idea that the strange warrior who helps her is a cyborg; the deadliest hi-tech killing machine ever created. Her world has forgotten the technology that almost destroyed it, but then a freak accident damages the micro-supercomputer that controls Sabre, and he is free to take charge of his destiny.

The cyber-bio combat unit has metal-plated bones and internal body armour, and is virtually indestructible. He is trained in every art of combat, able to use any weapon, speak every language and operate any craft, and the data stored in his brain, intended for the supercomputer’s use, is even updated at regular intervals.

Sabre agrees to help Tassin escape the kings who pursue her with the intention of annexing her kingdom through marriage, by right of capture. Tassin, however, has never known hardship, and finds Sabre’s lack of courtly manners annoying, while he finds the high-spirited and spoilt young queen a trial. Yet he cannot abandon her, for she needs his help, although her high-handed ways always seem to land her, and, by association, Sabre, in trouble.

After she foils several of his attempts to rescue her from the enemy kings’ plotting allies and keep her safe, Sabre is left with only one option: to flee into the Badlands, a radioactive desert that was created by a nuclear war centuries ago, at the centre of which lies the most dangerous and dreaded area on Omega Five: the Death Zone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprising hit 10 Jun 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I first started to read this I was not immediately drawn into the plot but 20 minutes in I was hooked.
The book is well written and keeps its secrets close to the chest, every time you think you know where the author is taking you there is a new tantalising glimpse of what lies ahead.
The character of Cyber/Sabre is very one sided and monotonous and just when you think you have his type, there's an interesting twist that keeps the book storming forward and adds a whole new attitude. This is also where the well timed laughs started coming.
Intriguingly, you only find out at the very end some information that makes you think the next book will be worth it and I will be downloading that asap.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time 13 Oct 2011

I downloaded this because it is free, bad move.
I love sci fi and some fantasy, but for me this was a poor read, thin (non existent really) plot, characters that you really couldn't care less about, inane dialogue I could go on. I forced myself to finish this waiting for the humour mentioned in the previous review I wish I had not.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not up to usual standard 7 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I usually like this author's work - but not this one I'm afraid. The plot's OK but the main character has nothing going for her at all. She is totally self centered, seems to have no redeeming features at all and I found her extremely irritating. Shame really. So I won't be reading the rest of this particular series. It hasn't put me off this author though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read. 17 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this for three reasons. 1: It was a different type of book to what I normally read. 2: It was free and 3: I liked the product description.

I have to say I wasn't disappointed. I laughed out loud at some parts, gasped in others. I really did enjoy this book and it's characters. If this book was a film, I could picture Dolph Lundgren, when he was a little younger, playing Sabre.

I've wish-listed all the rest of this series and look forward to getting and reading them.

For 77p, you're getting a good story, it's worth it.

Brilliant author- can't recommend her enough. Try her other series and you won't be disappointed. She has a new way with Fantasy where the Hero is- not going to tell you as it will spoil it!
