A work that combines fantasy and sci-fi in an exhilarating ride, Terence Simmons’ The Lone Planet features a planet that runs the risk of becoming extinct. Aquant sits comfortably at the outer edge of the Andromeda galaxy and it is experiencing a lot of turmoil as it loses its gravitational pull. But this isn’t enough to send dire alerts to the inhabitants of the planet because there is a rebel group that is causing a lot of destruction and death in its wake and it won’t be long before Aquant is overrun. Can anyone or anything stop the Laggards?
The Moah, the distressed leader of the planet, must assemble the best talent he’s got to stop the attack on his planet. Now he must count on the support and skills of his Sky Watcher scientist and his estranged son, Ryon. And what about Aken, the Moah’s son who has joined the rebels? The Lone Planet is a great story with compelling characters. I loved the portrait of the Moah, a ruler who seems to have suffered so many losses. His wife is dead, and his two sons have both moved away from him, unable to get his attention. He has cared so deeply about his kingdom that he’s forgotten to take care of his immediate family. The plot is well-paced and readers are sure to find many surprising moments as they read on. Terence Simmons has a gift for descriptive prose and he successfully paints a world that readers can mentally navigate without any strain. I enjoyed the characters in this story and how they fitted into the compelling and powerful conflict. This is a well-written sci-fi with interesting elements of fantasy, an entertaining read.
