Things are in his favor, but a turn in events might throw a spanner in his well-built plans. Will he succeed? Will Salarin find herself? Find out by reading Rulers of the Galaxy.
Rulers of the Galaxy was an exciting book with surprises and twists. Tayma Tameem sure went all out in putting the element of surprise in this book. Bosco, who I believed to be just a raider, wasn't who I thought he was. At the time of writing this review, I was still in awe, trying to come to terms with all the twists and turns.
When I started reading the book, I thought it was vague and boring. The plots regarding Salarin and Daaken were not correlating. I couldn't relate to the two. There was also no sense of suspense initially. The book started to make some sense to me after the first few chapters. It seemed like the story began there. I connected the different parts, felt the climax build, and noticed some scenes that heightened suspense. I had initially lost interest in reading and only continued reading to give an honest review. But after crossing those first few chapters, my interest was aroused, and I couldn't drop the book till I finished.
As much as I enjoyed reading the book, I had a slight issue with it. I had difficulty following the name of the planets the high minister was warring against and the ones that were his allies. This was because the names were so many, and I mostly had to backtrack to follow up. The two names that I followed without issue were the Imperials and Elementals, as they were recurrent. As much as this is a slight issue, I thought to call the author's attention to it.
Rulers of the Galaxy was a book I enjoyed reading. There were a couple of errors, but not enough to deduct any point. Therefore, I would give it a rating of 4 out of 4 stars. I would recommend it to lovers of sci-fi fantasy stories that have an intergalactic theme.
