Worlds Apart: Mackov Chronicles by David Krag Usmack is an incredible story that combines romance with political intrigue to set the reader on a rollicking ride on a very strong tide of conflict. Mackov and Bynova are two unlikely people to be together in a romantic relationship, two souls from two different worlds. Mackov is a dreamer, a man who wants to be an inventor some day, and who dreams of a romantic relationship like no one has ever experienced. He can’t find such a romance with his wife and his overbearing boss doesn’t make his dream of being an inventor seem possible.
Bynova has lost the love of her life to a rival. She is an empress who is about to lose her throne as well. A looming threat brings her into contact with Mackov, and sparks ignite powerfully between them. As they embark on a forbidden romance and on the quest to save their realm, they are barely aware of plotters who want Mackov dead and Bynova dethroned. Can they win against envy and hatred?
David Krag Usmack’s story is told with great mastery. Readers will fall in love with Mackov, a man who seems to live under constant stress, but the transformation that sweeps through his life is so powerful that it changes not only his life, but the story of the woman he meets. The conflict is well-developed and explored at multiple levels. Worlds Apart: Mackov Chronicles is deftly plotted and written to an amazing finish, with memorable characters, strong plot lines, and an enticing, somewhat lyrical style of writing that keeps the reader turning pages nonstop.
