The Last Hour of Gann is dark, intense, romantic, sad, violent, suspenseful, thought provoking; I could go on. It had everything. It's a combination of science fiction, fantasy and romance, and it works so well. The characters are amazing; some you love and adore, others you hate with a passion.
The heroine, Amber, is strong and determined, which I loved, and the hero, Meoraq, is a sexy lizardman. Amber and Meoraq are amazing characters, and although they are very different from each other, they worked really well together, as well as individuals. I felt every emotion, every physical thing that happened to Amber and Meoraq; and a lot happens to them.
Violence is prevalent throughout with rape, beatings and murder; definitely not for the faint hearted. But it's all relevant to the story and the world the characters inhabit. Nothing is added just for the sake of it. The alien world the author has created is vibrantly described, I really felt as though I was there.
This story is so much more than a romance, the plot is well thought out and executed, and the supporting cast of characters are just as interesting as the main characters. It’s quite an epic story and I loved it. I will definitely be picking up something else from this author in the very near future.
Smith is an awesome writer. I honestly can't recommend this enough. One of my favourite reads of the year....more
