Giveaway: Fires of Man by Dan Levinson
Posted by brriske
In a world where a gifted few can manipulate reality with their minds, two great nations—Calchis and Orion—employ these psionic powers in a covert war for global superiority.
In the heart of Calchis, a powerful young psion named Aaron Waverly is kidnapped, and forcibly conscripted. To the north, in the capital, a plan is hatched to decimate Orion, to be carried out by the ruthless operative known only as “Agent.”
In Orion, fresh recruit Stockton Finn comes to terms with his incredible new powers, and learns firsthand how dangerous they can be. Meanwhile, officers Nyne Allen and Kay Barrett navigate the aftermath of their shattered love affair, oblivious to the fact that Calchis draws ever closer to destroying the tenuous peace.
Finally, in the arctic land of Zenith, Calchan archaeologist Faith Santia unearths a millennia-old ruin. This lost temple might just hold the hidden history of psionic powers, as well as hints of a deeper mystery . . . that could shake the foundations of all mankind.
It was a thrilling beginning to this military scifi tale. The whole world was well crafted and you were immersed fully inside as soon as you read the first page. I enjoyed how the book was told from multiple points of view allowing the reader to see all sides of the story. Each character was unique and real facing everyday problems along with unique threats. Each character had their own quirks and perspectives. The story flowed along well. In the beginning it took a little while to sort out whose side who was on but it got easier as it went. I hated how the ending left you waiting for the next installment.
I recommend this for any scifi military fans out there. If you enjoyed Ender’s Game you are sure to enjoy this novel.
I would rate this five fangs.
