Are you ready for the human race to explore the galaxy? Are you ready to be part of an advanced civilisation that values science and knowledge? Are you ready to save Earth from a super weapon? Then step right up and read this book! I had a bit of trouble with the time lines but if you ignore that little issue you’ll get on fine with this book.

An ancient and wise civilisation offered humans a new way of living 300 years ago which a bunch of them grasped and they left the original earthlings to fi

Some humans left Earth 300 years ago and went along to experience advanced space travel, technology etc. In their new galactic world a small group of humans and aliens is sent back to Earth to overcome a group of rebels who hold some sort of device that could destroy life.
It's not a bad story but it did grate a bit. No great technology leap forward so its not challenging to read, life for the aliens and life in Earth seem too similar, the English language had not changed over 300 years, of cours

I really enjoyed this sci-fy thriller. It provided an alternative theory of life here on Earth. Humans left with the Gods 300 years ago to explore and settle other planets. The humans were left on Gaia and built up a technology heavy world with none of the violent traits of the humans left on earth. In between Earth and Gaia is a world called Anthara. It too is inhabited by human-like creatures called Antharians. They were left on Anthara and are war lovers. The story revolves around characters ...more

This was a great start for this series!

It was a bit of a weird start and lots of names to remember, but once they all connected I couldn’t put it down.

I can’t wait for the next book.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for this ebook arc in exchange for an honest review.

3 1/2 rounded up. This was a pleasant surprise for me. I haven't read sci-fi in a long time and just thought I'd check it out. Turned out to be a great decision.

This story line hooked me right away and I really enjoyed the story. It's an interesting concept of humans leaving the earth to colonize elsewhere. That civilization thrives (called Meridians), while Earth is as we know it- war-torn, pollution, unrest, etc. When a rival alien race comes to Earth as well to discover a missing artefact, T

There I was, merrily reading along in this science fiction book. Then WHAM, S. Ghali ruined it completely. How? They depicted the main female character as having an irresistible attraction to the alien who was her enemy minutes before, a member of a race she's been raised to consider lower than animals. Of course, she doesn't understand what she's feeling, and I imagine she'll fight it to some extent, but that was it for me. ...more

I liked the book. Elmyra and Zayn are quite a pair. Both have some serious emotional issues and a world ending problem to solve. It took a bit for the book to get going, but the background makes it better. There were a couple of times I questioned the action being quite believable, but the rest of the book made it worthwhile. It is a bit of a cliffhanger as the main issue is not resolved.

This book had an intriguing and enticing plot; however the writing was awful and I could not finish it. I read about one third of it over more than a week and just couldn't take anymore. A shame, because it could have been good. ...more

This book describes different versions of humans. It was a little hard to follow the beginning of the book, but we can see what happens later on. The book is full of action and is quite the quick read. I enjoyed this book. Warning! Be prepared to want to read the second book right away!

I can’t wait to read the next book. It does start off slow but once it gets started I couldn’t put it down.
