The whole idea is nicely developped, also the growing relation between Anya and Sherdan.
The end of the book is still very open, even when one episode is clearly coming to an end there.
Finding the good and the bad guys is not that easy there, idealists are not always thinking about the others...
Looking forward to reading the next book in the series, hoping it won't take too long!
ps. I received a free e-book in return for an honest review, this has in no way influenced the outcome of this text!
This is a very intriguing read! I just had to keep reading to see what would happen next especially with Sherdan and Anya and whether or not my mis-trust in Hitchin is well founded!!!
I loved reading as Sherdan managed to secure his "Country"
I was really shocked by Anya leaving the way she did and the fact that I was my right in my thought's concerning Hitchin's!!!
I really can't wait to read the next book in this series to see where Sherdan's and ANya's lives take them and if they will ever be reunited!!!
Sherdan is obviously a highly intelligent man, a scientist who has created a drug, an enzyme designed to trigger special abilities in his 'subjects.' Anya, who sneaks her way into his compound knows of a `prophecy' which immediately causes unrest. She is immediately captured and worse, subjected to two days of torture by his interrogation team. Yet, somehow, she resists by entering a trance-like state - until Sherdan stops the interrogation for reasons even he cannot explain. It appears that Anya is on a higher mission. Yet when Hitchin tells him of a 2nd prophecy, one in which Anya plays a vital part, Sherdan's feelings change and he ultimately wants to protect her.
His over-ambitious 'plan' to establish his own country `Utopia' in which his `subject' reside, angers the British government to an extent where the prime minister calls the troops in. But Sherdan has developed sophisticated defence mechanisms which render their artillery useless. As the story develops, I began to think that Sherdan was not an evil person - a megalomaniac, yes, obsessed with power and trying to play God. Yet he genuinely believes that what he is doing is `good' in trying to create a perfect world. I enjoyed the power play between the two characters. Anya is so sweet and genuinely innocent, she seems almost divine. I could identify with her arguments that a `Utopia' could never exist, due to the corruptible nature of the human mind.
I liked was the gradual change in Sherdan as he began to fall in love with her.Read more ›
If the word Christian makes you feel uncomfortable and negative towards this book ignore your feelings or you will miss what promises to be an enjoyable series. The book is a clever reworking of Beauty and the Beast, where a truly amoral man is touched by the gentle nature and physical beauty of a rather naïve young woman.
The protagonist, Sherdan, is a man so consumed by a dream that he has let all his common humanity slide and considers himself to be more powerful than God with an absolute right to decide who lives and who dies. After the worst possible start to a courtship possible he starts to try to win heart of the girl initially as a cold almost scientific process but then more humanly as his heart starts to melt under the influence of Anya (and a small ginger kitten).
The author deals with Anya's dilemma when she struggles between the tenets of her faith and her growing desire for Sherdan in a sensitive and believable way that many of us will recognise from our own lives.
The book suffers slightly from being the first in a series so very little is resolved and the author is too tied up in one part of the story that the background plot is slightly one dimensional (the fault that denies it a fifth star).
That apart I am, looking forward to the sequel.
