I'm not much of a sci-fi fan but this sounds interesting. I'm so curious about 'Seven Worlds where the children of the gods and Darsen once fought their battles'. The Worldship reminds me of the starliner Axiom from the animated film Wall-E. Now, I'm really curious. I hope I get the chance to read it. Great review!

@rssllue a burnt off arm, and magically appearing runes--I'm in!!! Great job drawing us in without giving away too much. This sounds very interesting, and it's going on my shelf. Congratulations to the author, building such an immense world can only be amazingly difficult, but to do it well to positive review is quite the feat!

Fantastic review! You did a great job summarizing the story without giving away too many details. This sounds like a very interesting read. I am going to add it to my list. Great job.

Thank you very much! I hoped that relating the first battle would draw you into the story right away, because it sure did for me! Mr. Gryn did indeed do a great job in constructing his universe!

Thank you very much as well! I hope both of you will let me know what you think of the book once you have read it! Enjoy! :D
