Book Rating: 2/5
Heat Rating: 2/5
Romance Rating: 0/5
Dark Rating: 1/5

I have to say it took a while to completely understand what was going on, a few chapters in, I was still a little flustered and had to get used to the way the Author writes.
But even then even at 60, 70, 80.. percent I was still a bit confused in areas.

I know the main male and female, were inspired by Khal Drogo & Daene

This is my first book By C.F. Rabbiosi and I have to say that I am impressed. Ms. Rabbiosi managed to create a fresh and original story. The world building is outstanding. I felt like I was truly living in this beautifully crafted world alongside its characters. I love that Calypso is such a strong heroine despite the cards fate keeps dealing her. This story is full of twists that take the reader on quite a ride. There is a certainly a lot of brutality and violent content so this may not be the ...more

Calypso grabs you from the beginning. It’s a wild ride from the beginning to the very end. I love the Sifi feel and the whole story. I need the next book I need to know what happens. I have fallen in love with the story and characters.

This was my first book from this author. I love her creativity. She doesn’t write a cookie cutter book that you feel you have read before again and again. I really liked the character development and the twist turns the storyline took. Hope you enjoy it.

This was an interesting take on a post-apocalyptic/alien invasion scenario and I enjoyed it, very much. The future is one where humans are hiding in small communities, their daily lives highly structured and restricted. Women, especially, are curtailed in their activities for fear of drawing the attention of the aforementioned aliens. Calypso has always keenly felt these restrictions and her differences from the rest of her group. She soon learns the cost of standing out from the crowd.

I've read a few of Charity's books now and I'm always amazed at how she manages to absorb the reader. Her writing style is so in depth, the characters believable and this new one is no exception. I'm totally rooting for Calypso and Kassien excited for book 2.

This is the first Dark Dystopian book that I have read. CF Rabbiosi writes with great description and takes you into her alien world with ease.
This is the story of Calypso, she was a strong young lady but she was different from everybody else. She looked different and she felt different.
The darkness and violence added to the story and made me want to read the book. I liked the way the characters interacted with each other whether they were friends or enemies.
A great first book in this genre.

This was a lovely commentary on climate change, war, species changes and how easily history can be wrapped to suit the needs of one side. Calypso is a simple 20 yr old waiting to be married off. She's in a community that was formed after war with the Koridon's destroyed most of Earth. She may be simple, but she's curious about sex. This community doesn't value it, not even to make babies. There's multiple horrible events that are the catalyst to her new life.

The book is written flawlessly. I fou

This is not my normal genre. That being said I throughly enjoyed Ms. Rabbioso’s interperertation of a future after an alien invasion where humans may be there only salvation. Can two species find a way to coexist and create a new beginning. Looking forward to the continuing story of Kassien and Calypso. I have read other books but this one was definitely inspired and created a different perspective to the dystopian world.

I want book 2, it was sooo good! I enjoy her books and this one, even though they had bad things happen to them, had me turning the pages. I didn't want to put it down. The way she describes her characters is great. They kind of remind me of avatar characters. She's so creative to have given them their own language and the different names she gave them. LOVE her books. 💜

***Thank you C.F. Rabbiosi***

This is a genre that I do not normally read. I really liked this story of Calypso and Kassien. In a nutshell it is a Sci-Fi version of Romeo and Juliet. Looking forward to the next one in this series.

Once a registered Nurse in California I became depressed and rebellious and now find myself living in the beautiful University City of Columbia, MO. writing. I love it.
No more blood and guts.
Well... not the real kind, but damn how my work reflects the realism.
