Captain Rez Cantor is a diplomacy officer in the Imperial Army, and personal attaché to Princess Leanna, the sixteen-year-old daughter of the Emperor, and sole heir to the Melelan throne.
On the eve of a treaty signing ending the twelve-year-war between the alien-hybrid Relcor and the Empire, Rez Cantor learns that the Imperial family has been slated for death. Under orders from his Queen, Rez is given his final command–save the Princess at all costs.
Overcoming incredible odds, Rez abducts Leanna, and the two flee Melela along with others of the Imperial guard. Unfortunately, their ship is nuked as it enters warp creating an event horizon that sends the ship 128,000 light years across the galaxy to the Moons of Tiiana. It is on one of these moons that Rez awakens on a beach–injured and alone–without the Princess.
So begins the sojourn of Rez Cantor upon the Moons of Tiiana: Five moons stagnating from a 2000 year-old war that has left its alien races in limbo and decay. Five moons that crave a hero bold enough to lead its people out of the darkness. Five moons that hold the future of the Melelan Empire deep within the ashes of war.
This was a very interesting book! Characters that captured your attention, a plot with tons of adventures, from plain survival, to updating a primitive culture, well, it's just really, really, really good! So enjoyable to read!
One thing that I should mention is that it took a little over half of the first chapter for me to realize that the narrator was male, because Rez's narration for me, didn't give an indication either way. Plus having not read the description didn't help, either! But this was a really great book, really enjoyed it!
I enjoyed the world, and how things were set up, with the weird names, like Rez Cantor, and Tiiana, because yeah, fantasy book! And oh, the history, that the moons have a 2000 year long war, well, yeah, doesn't speak too good of them, but it's a interesting history!
I enjoyed where things wrapped up, I felt like the characters were left in pretty decent places, considering that it's a series. The only character we know is going to be in the next book, is Rex Cantor, seeing as it's his name in the series. The rest of them, it's not 100% that they'll be in the sequels, so yeah, left in pretty good places!
I enjoyed this book a ton, it was really entertaining and great!
