Shepherds always had partners. Then again there was an exception to the rule; Nakio Atana. Her partners either died or found her incompatible, and so Command allowed her to work alone; she was one of their best anyway. That was why they called upon her to face the latest problem. A threat familiar to her distant memories looms in the sky above, and Atana is selected to head up the team that will oppose them. This enemy is taking anyone they can find from the surface of the planet, and Atana is their last, their only hope. But so little is known of these invaders. Atana thrives on being in control, something the unpredictability of not only her enemy, but of her newly assigned allies is making impossible. Can she surrender the control that keeps her sane and focused and, if she does, what buried secrets will emerge?
I found Stellar Fusion (Infinite Spark Book 1) to be a fascinating and enjoyable read. The author, E.L. Strife, pulls you into their futuristic world, introduces you to the ideas and structure of their domain, and wastes no time in driving the plot forward with compelling characters and imminent danger. Camaraderie, loyalty, survival, threats, and danger are expertly woven into an engaging plot. You develop an excellent feel for the characters and the personal obstacles they face, as well as those embraced within the plot. This futuristic world has some technologies that are both beautifully and terrifyingly imagined; those that will aid our heroes, and those that will stand in their way, and sometimes the line between the two can be blurred. Really enjoyable, interesting and, most importantly, fun to read. I look forward to seeing where book two takes us next.
