Republic Falling: Advent of a New Dawn is the first novel in the Wars of the New Humanity series by Michael J Brooks. Set in a universe where humans have migrated from Earth, humans are living on four planets Satellites One, Two, Three, and Eden. Randy, our protagonist, enlisted in the Commonwealth Defense Force with one purpose in his mind: get revenge for the murder of his mother. Only people close to Randy know that he was Linked to his mother and went through horrible consequences when she was atomized by her own husband, Arson Scott. Now, Randy has only one purpose: get Arson to pay the price for his mother’s death. Finding his father is easy, and so is exacting revenge, but what happens when you aren’t sure if you are fighting for the right reasons? Before he knows it, Randy is stuck between lies and suspicious people he knows he cannot trust. With Cadet Stacie Spencer by his side, he knows he will have to tread with caution, or else there will be a hefty price to pay!
Extraordinary and cohesive, this novel sets a brilliant start to an incredible story. Randy is the perfect protagonist for the story. He is decisive, smart, and determined enough to get the job done. He is analytical (a trait you hardly find in science fiction protagonists) and truly observes his situation before taking action. While the topic of the fight between the upper class and the lower, less privileged is a common topic, very few authors have the skill to tackle it with grace and clarity. The author shares even the most minor details to make the story interesting and captivating for readers. Author Michael J Brooks introduces some fantastic technology while keeping everything real and believable (something I loved tremendously). I believe Randy has a lot of potential, and the author will fully expand on it in future novels! Kudos!
