The Rise of Europa Prince by Alon Lavie is the first book in the author's The Venom Sector series, which propels readers into a future where the existence of mankind is in grave danger as contentious aliens await the opportunity to destroy the human race. The only thing keeping them at bay are the more benevolent aliens who have determined that mankind is worth saving. And at the heart of it all is a fiery protagonist named Alexa, who always seems to be one step ahead of her nemesis, Black Widow, in a race to save humanity and restore a propitious balance in a universe ripe for slaughter.
The Rise of Europa Prince by Alon Lavie is a fast paced debut into the best that science fiction writing has to offer. The story is well drawn out and the author has a real talent for action scenes and tension building, which makes the story wonderfully accessible and engaging to readers. The icing on the cake is truly a strong female cast, one in which a supporting character - Ayana - can walk up to the President of the United States while he's still in bed and lay out the what's-what in the world, with the word "sir" being tagged on toward the end of the conversation, almost as an afterthought. You've got to love a book where women are running the show. This book is well developed and the characters are well fleshed out, but where it shines and ticks the most important box of all is in its pacing and action sequences. If you're looking for a space-age thrill read, this is it.
