Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

In the Orbit of Sirens, the first part of The Song of Kamaria series, is a work of science fiction and dystopia by author T. A. Bruno. Set in a world where members of the human race are now part of an endangered species, the book follows two characters working to provide refuge for what’s left of humanity on the planet Kamaria. Whilst the new world seems like a paradise, it comes with new dangers; first and foremost a deadly disease, the cure to which is closely guarded by the locals. But as the effort to treat ‘lung-lock’ pushes forward, it accidentally causes an even more dangerous threat that could wipe out humanity once and for all.

Author T. A. Bruno delivers a dystopian delight which is truly out of this world, and one which I enjoyed immensely. This was right on the money for my favorite kind of fiction, not least for its lavish, vivid depictions of a desolate world and desperation for survival, but also because of the keen parallels to our own contemporary lives that are hidden in the dark shadows of the piece. The work is well suited and accessible to all readers, tense without being graphic, emotive without overreaching. The characters are also deeply considered with some very dynamic dialogue that digs into their psychology in this brave new world. Overall, I would highly recommend In the Orbit of Sirens as a must-read for sci-fi and dystopian fans who want to embark on an original and engrossing new series. Unmissable.
