This is the 2nd book in The Kota series. The four Kota warriors from book one are center-stage again, but there are also some new characters introduced, which adds some nice variety.

The story starts where book one left off. The warriors have gone through a portal into a new dimension and crash-landed on Ebon, a new planet. The species they meet, the Ebonites, are descendants of humans some time ago, but have changed genetically over time to better adapt to their world. Due to this, there are

I loved the first book in this series and wanted to be blown away by this one. I was! There are many really great writers in this genre but few I have read who create such amazing worlds. The detail Sunshine Somerville goes into really brings her characters and settings to life, making them both powerful and easy to imagine. This series really is pure escapism, transporting you to another place for the time you are lost in its pages.

I knew this was going to be a five star read from the beginning. For my money it is actually better than The Kota which I loved as I think there is another level of complexity to the ever evolving saga. I really liked the change of focus and as usual Sunshine Somerville creates awesome worlds and characters.

She laid the foundations in The Kota and whilst she relies more on genre tropes this time around she still

I really enjoyed the author's first book, The Kota, and was looking forward to the sequel. Again, she demonstrates her mastery of rich, textured prose and multi-layered, deep characters. Again she has that distinct voice that is so important in any author. She is truly invested in her characters, especially Cliqani, the unsung heroine of this novel who is not flashy, but earns a deep reservoir of respect through her mature, unselfish, and noble deeds as doctor to the sick.

Ultimately, my only
