After a google search I found the right description and Star Fantasy fits into the “Hybrid Fiction” genre. Its blends elements from fantasy novels (which is more my thing) with a kind of military scifi space opera.
The pace of the story is good. There are three main storylines (The story of the planet called Eltheran; the Captain of a Spaceship discovering something important about himself; and the mad Goblin King on a quest for vengeance on a planet that banished them). However, from these three stories, there are more subplots that interweave and lead towards a pretty cool conclusion to the story.
I toyed with giving the book 5 stars, based on the fact that it’s a good read, its 99p and it won’t bore you…However, it gets 4 stars from me. (It’s a really good book, but its not Epic – but that because I prefer Fantasy over Science Fiction).
All the characters develop through the story but not to the point that you learn everything about them (you will be left wanting to know more) and there is a twist – which to be honest I guessed was going to happen but didn’t spoil the story. (In fact I want to know more).
The book definitely stands by itself as a single novel but you can tell the writer has more to say about these characters and would make sense for there to be a continuation of the story told. So I won’t lie, like most independently published books, it could have done with a final run through from a copy editor but don’t let that stop you from diving into to this fascinating story. Once you are in you won’t want to stop.
My verdict – a decent enjoyable read, 99p if you get it on the Kindle (which is an absolute gift) and £5 in paperback which isn’t bad either if having the physical book is your thing (which it is for me).
