About the Author
Drew Wagar was born in Canada in 1970, but has lived in the UK since 1972. He was educated at the university of Brighton where he studied Computer Science. Drew published his first novel, Torn, in 2011 and followed this up with contributions to the Fusion anthology in 2012.

This book, Elite: Reclamation was published in 2014 by Fantastic Books Publishing. Drew is currently working on a wholly original SF series called the Shadeward Saga. The first instalment, Shadeward: Emanation, was launched at Fantasticon, 2015. The second instalment, Shadeward: Exoneration, is available now in ebook format and will be launched officially at FantastiCon 2016.

At the end of the first book, Meru sets off in a flying metal machine to warn the people of Scallia about a catastrophe that is about to befall the planet. His friends, Mel and Coran take a floating metal machine that runs on 'tricity to another area to warn people.
Of course, not everything goes the way it is supposed to, and a few more people are thrown into the mix for good or ill. Sometimes it is hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys. It reminds me of a quote from a film - "I have seen good men do bad things, and I have seen bad men do good things".
There is plenty of action and intrigue in the book with many twists. You find yourself hoping for some characters to survive only to start hoping they die later. And the other way round - you hope some people and then find yourself glad they didn't. Wagar builds characters well and makes them believable with their views and scheming.
The creatures, measurements and times in the books are unique with no description needed as to what they mean, although there is a glossary in the back if you want confirmation. Creatures like flits, which, from the brief description, you know are butterfly-like creatures and marsips which in my eyes, are rabbits or something similar.
The only problem I have found with the book is the length of time I have to wait until book three comes out. At the moment, that is looking like 2018. So you have plenty of time to grab the first two books and read them.
Exoneration is a must for any library of fantasy lovers.
As the first book sets the scene for the story this book, after a brief synopsis of the first, gets stuck into the action, I was hooked straight away.
Action from pretty much page 1 and a boat load of character development. I can't say much about it without giving away bits of book one or sounding like Drew's biggest fan boy.
Just buy it. Read it. You'll enjoy it. And that's me trying to be objective.
