My Review:

Pillay takes a well-known fantasy theme and transforms it into a SciFi adventure. The plot that he creates was definitely one of a kind. The story had a great deal of detail, creating a whole that has the potential to stand out. His descriptions bring not only this world, but many worlds to life. Everything was very easy to picture throughout.

I found the characters a bit all over the board. The main characters were well developed and at times quite fun to get to know. There were also a variety of personality types throughout the supporting cast. Some of the female characters reminded me more of a ‘Bond Girl’ than active, important characters in the story.

Pillay’s novel & plot were wildly original and had a great deal of potential, but I simply couldn’t get into it fully. That said, it was an enjoyable read that brought forth some very intriguing points.
