Uncover a Lifetime of Lies in this Fantasy Adventure!
On Day One, Charlie Damuzi and her mute twin brother, Tirigan, are blissfully unaware of the dangerous world they live in. They may be aliens living on Earth after the extinction of humans, but to Charlie, life is pretty mundane.
On Day Two, the Damuzi family is ripped apart by a secret that forces the twins to flee the only home they've ever known. Determined to reunite their family, Charlie and Tirigan travel to uncharted territory in search of their salvation.
But that's just Charlie's side of the story.
In the future, forty days from when we first meet the Damuzi twins, Tirigan is on the move. His destination is unknown, as are the people he's surrounded himself with, but his mission is still the same. Keep his sister safe and reunite their family. However, as Tirigan attempts to navigate the complex bonds he's formed with his companions, he's forced to confront the one thing in life he has yet to fully understand. Himself.
Family. Deception. Power. Destruction.
It all begins on Day One.
This novel is written in such a unique way. You can kind of tell from the synopsis that there will be some time jumping. This is a difficult thing for an author to master as to not confuse their reader. I'm happy to say that Indie Gantz has done this masterfully.
One thing that you need to be aware of that is this is a Book 1, so there is a LOT to learn about the world Indie Gantz is taking us into and the characters. That is a huge part of this novel, backstory and getting the reader up to speed. I think that future novels will up the ante when it comes to action.
There is an immense level of detail the author puts into her setting and characters and I think that helps the reader imagine the characters and world vividly.
A great start to a new series and I look forward to seeing where Gantz takes it from here!
