Savage Dawn - Michelle Hercules Wow - what a ride. The story kept me hooked all the way to the end. The characters were interesting and each had their own powers. Samiah and Malachiax are together from the start I liked seeing them together and working to save the planet. Femror was an unusual character and I would love to read more about him and Lochiana. I felt for Durgin and need to see where he ends up. First book for me from Michelle Hercules and I will definitely pick up the next one in t ...more

Malachiax has an affinity with the earth and can control it, to a degree. When the opportunity to examine a new archaeological site is offered to them, they and their team jump at the chance. The site offers clues to the location of a portal to other places, long-thought to be a myt

Savage Dawn by Michelle Hercules is the first book in the Legends of Gattica series. It follows a group of Arcadians on a quest to stop or contain a dangerous threat to their planet after a portal that explorers had been studying was finally opened.

I really enjoyed this book. It had not only a lot of action, depicted as a frantic journey to get ahead of and stop the threat to their world, but there was a romantic side to the story as well. In addition, the mismatched group of explorers, royal pr

I received a free copy of this book from the author. I had the opportunity to review or not.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more. The characters are diverse, exciting and well-developed. The plot is fast-paced and riveting. I had started another book but put it aside to read this one. A group of explorers inadvertently opened a portal to dangerous, invasive killers.

The story revolves around the attempt of the group to find a way to close the portal against extremely d

Where kickass heroines meet mayhem. Love Samiah and Malachiax, they are soul mates and she is expecting twins. They are in on a dig trying to figure out a mystery and they let something sinister into their world. Now they have to figure out how to save everyone. There are four couples who must save the world.

I really enjoyed this exciting adventure filled with danger, mystery and magic. The charters are so real they engage the readers heart strings. The world is described in such detail that you can see the adventure as it happens. Loved every heart pounding twist and turn in this gripping journey to save the world.

Savage Dawn is a book with a gripping plot from the first page. It has everything that must be included in a good fantasy/sci-fi book:
- love and betrayal, but without this boring love triangles. It's pretty, not irritative, and cute.
- strong both male and female characters that are real enough to believe them.
- unusual things such as a planet that can make its own decisions and regulate some things, portals between very far of each other places, and other interesting stuff
- magic, simple, but in
