Descrição do produto

By the author of Only Human and Rebel Alliances

An immense asteroid field is on its way to deliver a torrent of pathogens into this galactic sector, guaranteeing the destruction of any civilization in its path. Cyann, astrobiologist and Human-Delphian hybrid, is eager to join the research expedition dispatched to investigate.

Before they depart, she is called upon by the secretive members of a Delphian sect who believe that the elusive Tughan Wai, a supernatural creature of their own making, plays a part in this calamity. Her own genes hold the key to finding the Tughan and so she and her teammates are sent on a separate, secret mission to the outer rim.

She is not prepared when they are stranded among an alien species whose motivations are enigmatic at best. It seems that nothing can be done to stop the lethal asteroid as it barrels into a densely populated region. The mighty Tughan is not their salvation and so Cyann is forced to draw upon the mental aptitudes of her father's people and the intrepid resolve of the Humans to find her purpose in this fight for survival.

Sobre o Autor

I am a first generation Canadian currently and out of necessity residing on planet Earth (which, in the general and interplanetary scheme of things could REALLY use a catchier name, if you ask me. I mean, imagine heading past Proxima Centauri and someone asks you whence you came and you tell them "dirt." All theological implications aside, that just won't do.) My first full-length work of fiction, Flight To Exile, is a fantasy which, I just realized, takes place on a planet that doesn't have a name at all and blurs the line between sci-fi and fantasy in ways that are probably illegal. I then headed out far beyond Proxima Centauri and found a nifty story that soon turned into a Space Opera complete with wormholes and improbable laser guns. What fun. Laws of physics need not apply if you find a way to explain them away. The series stars Nova Whiteside as a space marine whose pesky humanity keeps getting in the way of her doing her job according to protocol. Currently, there are four books in the series, with two more planned. When not finding ways to torture my subjects or entice them with inter-species hanky-panky, I design web sites or write about designing web sites. I enjoy long walks on the beach or, given the local beach shortage, write about beaches far beyond Proxima Centauri.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Don't you just love it when your favourite series continues? 28 de junho de 2013
Por MsTee - Publicada na Amazon.com

Thank you, very much, Reher, for answering my prayers....err...I mean hopes! You've written another great piece for this series, and like the ones before, it was an engrossing and pleasurable read.

Nova's no longer the star of this show - her daughter is. She's got the strength, the smarts, and even the stubbornness down pat, just like her mother. But Cyann is not without her flaws. A product of an interspecies union, she struggles with her identity to the point of feeling insecure and 'less-than' her peers. Thankfully, she's got an old friend - and adolescent crush - to show her differently.

Don't get me wrong, though. While the side-romance and family time is enjoyable, it does not detract from the real genre. This book is every bit the space opera/space exploration it's supposed to be. We're thrown into the story from the word go when Cyann and her team are warned by a strange visitor of an upcoming threat to their entire world. Plans are put in place to deal with this threat, and while doing so, new information comes to light about the Tughan Wai (first seen in Only Human - which, though you don't need to read first to enjoy this book, would certainly help if you did).

And now it's on. In true Reher fashion, everyone scrambles and fights to save what's most important to them. The mighty Tughan is not that mighty anymore, and Cyann finds herself struggling between sadly accepting this fact and doing her damnedest to restore him for the sake of their world. A new species is introduced into the culture-rich world of Trans-Targon and whether they're of an inclination to help or hurt is uncertain. Hard decisions as well as sacrifices are made, and through the pacing of this book, one can see that Reher has done their homework on space and biology.

I have rated this book five stars because the author has clearly (and successfully) done their best to provide a great and engaging read. For my own personal enjoyment, I would give this work four stars. I cannot pinpoint why or where, exactly, but for me, it did not have as much oomph as the previous works in the series. In any case, if you love space operas with a cup of adventure, a tablespoon of romance, and a dash of humour, I believe and recommend that you will enjoy this book, too.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Amazing book... amazing series. One of the better authors I've ever read. 11 de junho de 2015

This whole series has been an amazing find. So glad I stumbled across the first book and tried it. The characters are interesting, unique and very well developed as are the story arcs. But, most importantly, the stories are all very entertaining and interesting and because of this all 5 books I've read so far have been serious page turners. Be careful sitting down with these books for an hour or so... you may just find that time shifted while you were in the pages and several hours passed without you noticing.

Chris Reher has turned me into a fan. Her imagination is as endless as the night sky. At first blink her ideas may seem outlandish (which, of course, they are). But her space operas become credible when she populates them with characters as flawed and real as the people we meet every day. I think her ideas are visionary. Someday we may actually find keyholes in space through which we can travel vast distances. Five hundred years ago, who envisioned seeing and speaking with another person in real time thousands of miles away. Today it is an ordinary occurrence. I am looking forward to her next installment of the Targon Tales. Although I finished "Delphi Promised" feeling her story was complete, she left many avenues yet to be explored.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Love 15 de janeiro de 2014

Chris Reher creates a very plausible world, and his characters are fleshed out extremely well. He isn't afraid to show the weak and flawed side of humans as well as showing their strength under pressure. Very nicely done. You fall in love with them and can relate to most of his characters, even the villans. Nova Whiteside is my favourite,and this is the 3rd novel in this series that I read.

Worth every penny

I enjoyed this story the most of the series. What was lost was found and apocalypse was averted. Interesting character interaction and dialogue. Lots of aliens and romance.
