5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to a new trilogy 14 Sept. 2012
By Tomass - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Descent, the first part of Falaha's Journey trilogy, does a good job introducing some of the main characters -- and I say some, because I've got the feeling we will meet a couple more in the next book(s) -- and the main over-arching conflict. The characters (even the supporting cast) are well-developed and the main ones have plenty of room to grow during the course of the next two books.

The narrator and MC is a five-year-old girl, Falaha. Another main character is introduced later in (he even gets his POV time in the end), and this is where the story really picks up pace with plenty of tension and excitement.

Falaha is unique, interesting and complex character, and the male leads have some secrets up their sleeves. Every one of them is likeable in one way or another, and you'll get attached to the main cast by the end of this part, if not earlier.

The dialogue is always natural and believable.

The ending is unexpected and will leave you wanting to know what happens next.

This is fast-paced, multilayered story set in the tightly constructed universe. Every word counts, nothing is wasted. The story is episodic and some might feel uncomfortable with that, but the plot is imaginative and well thought out.

One more thing needs to be said here -- there are no humans in this story and not everyone might like sci-fi without human characters or any connections to the fate of humanity/Earth in some way.

Overall a very enjoyable read.
4.0 out of 5 stars Fast Fun Read 30 Sept. 2012

If you are looking for an original story then look no further. This story is told from the point of view of a five year old, but don't let that fool you this definitely a book that is complex and interesting. This is not for the kiddies. The main character is smart and interesting and gives the bad guys a run for their money. Even though the main characer precocious, she still has moments of being a child, which adds to the believability. I loved the twists and turns of the plot and the relationships between the characters. If you like "Ender's Game" then give this one a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars A review by Free Book Reviews 9 Sept. 2012

Overall Feedback: At first I found myself confused about this one. I did not know if I was liking it or just reading it because I said I would. Though as I got further into the "Episodes" of this novella I found myself more and more wrapped up in the storyline. I feel that this novella is a great introduction to what should become a staple in Science Fiction. If you are a fan of Science Fiction you should really give this a try and remember that it should be the first of a long running series so long as the author agrees.

Point of View: The story is told from a single point of view but it is in episodes, so it feels as if you are reading a TV series.

Voice: The author is a fan of episodic science fiction but I do not think there is enough here to make a determination on voice.

Character Development: I found this area to be a bit choppy but in the end you do become attached to both the female and male lead.

Plot: As science fiction goes the author does well to tie in a plot but as an introduction into what shall become a great series I feel that there was to much that could not be told in such a short amount of time. Although it will peak the interest of the reader to read another in the series if just to find out more about the civilizations.

Dialogue: Not enough to make a determination one way or another. If I was to hazard an opinion it would be that the dialogue did not cause issues in the story.

Pacing: Fighting right out of the gate, like a good science fiction should.

Setting: I would like to know more about this, as I said there simply is not enough time to tell or set all of the needed facts to make a determination.

Continuity: I again think this is supposed to be the start of the series and I figure that the author has done a superb job of peaking the interest of the reader. The next shall be on my list of books to lookout for.
