The Empire and The Rebels by Elizabeth Lang #bookreview

empire-rebel tour banner 2

  The Empire All Adrian Stannis wanted was a quiet corner of the galaxy where he could work on his beloved scientific experiments, but unfortunately, he was born into a world at war, where his people are struggling for survival against a vastly superior alien invasion force and he is a genius who was trained for the very thing he hates, the creation of deadly weapons. Not to mention, he appears to have been genetically mated to a telepath by his government and he doesn’t find her…uninteresting. In fact, she appears quite intelligent. So what will happen to this solitary man when his peace is shattered in every way possible and there is nowhere left to run? Buy on Amazon | Kobo | B&N | Smashwords

The Rebels  Adrian, Kali and Adrian’s personal assistant, Bryce are finally free of the oppressive Empire. They hide on a planet called, Orasis, a tech-4 world on the Outer Rim whose only usefulness is a low-grade source of Tri-Iridium ore. Not the kind of place to find the most advanced weapons scientist in the galaxy. Things go well, relatively, and Adrian and Kali finally have time to develop the relationship they didn’t think possible. Adrian and Bryce even start up their own fix-it business. Then a stranger arrives on the planet. Buy on Amazon | Kobo | B&N | Smashwords

My review: I have read a lot of different types of scifi so I think that somewhat of an authority on the subject. It was refreshing to find a new take on the genre because this book has a lot of depth and layers. The characters are well developed and the two main characters come from completely different places but their common predicament brings them together to deal with the life they are currently dealt. I liked The Rebels a little more than The Empire, it seemed to flow better and keep your interest a little more. I definitely joy both books and I am looking forward to reading the 3rd book to see how the story progresses. A solid 3 1/2 stars from me.

About the author: Elizabeth Lang is first and foremost, a geek with the obligatory love of science fiction and fantasy. She spent most of her life in the computer industry designing computer systems for world domination the mundane industry of life insurance, which is surprisingly, not as exciting as it sounds. Now she creates enchanted worlds of magic, explores the human condition in the light of future technology and civilizations, and dreams about world domination. Or at least, some of her characters do. Her first book, The Empire was fortunate enough to be a finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards and she has never looked back.   Author Social Media Webpage: Facebook: Elizabeth Lang Twitter: @Elizabeth_Lang Pinterest: Elizabeth Lang
