Weary of the long and vicious Mogge war, Commander L’ Hyatt Tsaurine Mharc’s rebellious nature is further stretched by the sudden appearance of an antiquated Earth ship and its two pilots arriving in the system with no possible explanation for their presence. The embodiment of the Nihili need to satisfy curiosity, Mharc is driven to find the answer even if she has to risk court-martial to do it. There is more danger than even she can imagine, and it will lead her, her loyal crew, her new Earth friends and the mighty Antares to certain destruction if she cannot solve the puzzle in time. And if there were not already enough at stake, she must decide if contact with a member of a secret race, resembling living gargoyles, represents doom or salvation. Mharc could have her finest hour, or her utter defeat as she risks everything on a belief once held to be myth.
T.L. McDonald you have done it again! Book lovers, T.L. McDonald is an incredible science fiction writer who had floored me with her first novel; Revolution . I have to admit, I was worried that the sequel would not live up to my expectations; I was worried because of how madly in love I was with the first novel because it was so incredibly brilliant and I wanted it to be great. That is why I am so happy to write book lovers that Distant Family, the brilliant, mind-bending sequel in The Chronicles of Mharc series is just as, if not more brilliant than Revolution!
Distant Family is an incredible, science fiction novel that will make you feel excitement as well as fear. It is a novel that has a powerful, prominent feeling of suspense. You are kept continuously guessing, and continually being led down a winding road with the destination unknown. That is exactly how I would describe this novel- an incredible adventure that takes you to many wonderous, but terrifying places, places which you did not know you were going to come across. My point is, is that this novel is unexpected, you will not guess a single event that happens, and that is something I love in a fictional story!
Distant Family was a book I struggled to put down. This is no surprise considering I felt this with Revolution, but I felt even more compelled with Distant Family. I believe this is because I was already invested in the characters as well as the general story. I desperately wanted to know what was going to happen, especially to the beautiful protagonists, I had grown to love in Revolution! This proves to you that T.L. McDonald is an author who knows how to captivate her audience. Her brilliant book will make you have many sleepless nights… that is a promise! It is too incredible for you lovely readers to miss it so that is why I would recommend that you lovely readers read this book series!
The plot of the novel was just as superb as the plot in Revolution. Unlike most readers, I adore sequels. I love them because the author has a great platform to build on. The first book is all about world-building, you have to create the world, the characters, everything! That is why sequels (especially in this genre) work so brilliantly because the author already has a great platform to expand on. McDonald showed her readers that there is more to this world and her characters and she did so by developing them further as well as providing more detail, and I have to say; I loved this!
T.L. McDonald can only be described as an excellent, well-accomplished wordsmith. Her words always feel so radiant, so much so that they have a sense as if they are shining of the page. I felt pure enjoyment reading the fantasy words, a sense of warmth accompanied me too because I was so engrossed and intrigued by the story. It is the kind of book I would love to read again so that I could pick up on all the small details I may have missed!
To summarise my thoughts on this extraordinary tale, I would say, if you are looking for a new book series that will entertain you for hours on end (so much so that you can’t sleep!) and that you will fall madly in love with then this excellent book is for you! This exceptional novel gets Five Stars from me.
