I was supplied with this book free to read and review. Please note this is a review of the complete trilogy as Amazon has the habit of posting reviews against the wrong versions. Although the author calls this a series it is more a serial as the parts do not stand alone and you need to read all three parts in the correct order.
Rarely have I come across a science fiction book that so vividly describes the authors new world with all of the characters and creatures that inhabit it although the styles are different it made me think of the works of "Anne McCaffrey". As this is a trilogy there is sufficient time to develop even the minor characters and the changing relationships between them. I found that I could visualise all of the characters and locations and wanted to know more about them. The main plot is written from the perspective of a race that has been divided on a planet by a permanent storm that prevents anyone crossing it one side of which is permanently light because of three Suns in the sky one of which is stationary, and the other side day and night, an interesting concept. Without giving the plot away there is a mix of 3 races numerous other creatures and a plot that tests loyalties and beliefs. The plot also manages to move quickly and held my attention through all three books. In the end although everything is tidied up nicely there is an indication of more to come and if there are future books I will certainly buy them.
