I was given a copy of Sorrow’s Fall for an honest review and I can honestly say that I loved every bit of it. Davonne Burns thrusts you into a world fighting for power over the galaxy. Thrown into the middle of it all is Sorrow, a boy who possesses a gift that everyone wants to get their hands on. He is a weapon. An assassin bred to kill. Nothing more. Or…at least that’s what he believes.

From the beginning I felt a strong connection with this character. I felt for him when he was sad or hurting

This novel is absolutely brilliant. It holds you tight and never lets you go. Novel grips the reader tight and you're left breathless. I couldn't set it down and read it in an entire night. My heart ached and I felt like I was left wondering, "What do I do now?"

I look forward to more works by the author and to see where the story of a boy name Sorrow leads. It can't be all that unpleasant... right?

Davonne weaves a sci fi adventure that will touch you deeply. All writers have strengths and Davonne’s is the simply the way she imparts emotions to the reader, She is a master at getting into the head of her character and making you feel a connection with them. She gives nothing away, as she effortless leads us through the plot. Presently you with endless twists and turns you did not foresee.
I was swept away on the author’s imagination to a distant land were our nightmares reside. A cruel place

Trained from birth, Sorrow is an assassin that is on everyone’s list in a galactic struggle for power.

***
In her first novel, author Davonne Burns’ fast paced, multifaceted action science fiction tome tells the tale of Sorrow, an emotionally crippled, psychic boy assassin. Yearning for love and acceptance, he is physically abused, emotionally bullied and psychically controlled with advanced technical devices by the Barendi clan. He is a pawn in the fight between the clan, various governments and

Just as engaging the second time.

I loved Sorrow's Fall the first time I read it, falling pretty deep into its immersive world of galactic corporations, syndicates, and other things, some of which I didn't expect to see in a sci-fi story.

The first time I read it in its paperback format, but I wanted to see what the book would be like in its original incarnation, as an eBook.

I enjoyed myself pretty much the same as last time. What's striking is how emotional this story is, and I missed a few of

Having learned to read by age four, Davonne hasn't stopped since. At age seven, they read The Yearling and learned something wonderful, books were populated by real people in real places. They never went back to the kids section again.

Their mother, recognizing the need for more substantial reading material, introduced them to Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov and Jules Vern. Thus a life-long love of scie
