Great read for sci-fi lovers and sci-fi newbies alike!,
This review is from: Inquest (Rogue Hunter Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Rogue hunter follows the story of Zyra, A bounty hunter and how she has ended up being on trial for breaking out one of New Venuses most wanted criminals.
I haven't read many sci-fi novels but I am so glad that I have read this one. From get go i was hooked!
You discover why Zyra is in the predicament that she is in through the medium of present day narration and through flashbacks. Even though this is a litter confusing at first, you get used to it and in the end I don't think there would have been as much depth to the tale if it was written in a different way.
I love the Zyra! As a main character she is brilliant. She is so complex and there is so many different sides to her character. She seems quite harsh and robust but bit by bit it you can discover how soft she becomes, especially when it comes to her love for Mikaela. You feel sorry for her too because she seems to be so broken and confused. It is awesome to see her highs and lows throughout the novel.
Another thing I adored was the world building. This universe is a whole new concept for me but due to wonderfully descriptive writing style. You are able to picture it so vividly. I find the concept of this interpretation of the future so intriguing! The politics between the worlds in the galaxy also had me. They were not too complicated and it was very easy to follow.
Normally with books I can guess elements of what was going to happen. But this, with each turn of the page took me by surprise. I would be sat there reading and be like: OMG DID THAT JUST HAPPEN!!
At 175 pages on the PDF, I was scared that this novel would not be long enough; that the characters would be introduced in a rushed manner and the world building would be scarce... This novel could not be further from this! I could not have been more wrong! This read is so action pact... so much better than novels triple its size! This is definitely a perfect example of quality over quantity.
Recommend to lovers of Sci-Fi adventures and also to people who have never read sci-fi but want to try it!
I will be totally be keeping an eye out for more of Kevis's work. Many thanks to him for the review copy.
