“What if you were thrown into a foreign society, never to see home again? What would you do and could you survive?”
I didn’t need to read much more after that, I knew I wanted to check this book out. Joe is basically given the choice of death, or go live on a new planet, after he’s rescued from a crazy plane crash by something or someone unknown to him, otherwise known as aliens.
I loved the fact that Anyar is similar to Earth from the seventeen hundreds. He has to get used to a whole new life, on a whole new planet. Joe transforms amazingly as a character, and I really enjoyed the adventures he took me on.
This is a great intro to the Destiny’s Crucible series by Olan Throensen. This book is overall fun to read, it certainly kept me highly entertained. I was instantly hooked from the very beginning. Descriptive enough for imagining the whole new world Thorensen has created, without being overly done or tiresome to read. It seemed to me the spelling and grammar was on point, and I read through it with ease.
There’s enough of a small cliff hanger at the end to make me crave more! I can’t wait to read the next sequel. I already know quite a few sci-fi readers that will absolutely love this book! I give it 5/5.
