Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.
I'm just trying to light up the world as much as I can one SciFi/paranormal/fantasy/space opera/time travel book at a time.
This quick, SFF romp through seven galaxies was a lot of fun. It was an easy read that had me up into the wee-ist of hours... Off on a guilty pleasure literary adventure. One of this book's most endearing qualities was its bevy of unique beings & creatures. I loved the diversity though the insta-love I could have skipped. It wouldn't have been a bad pairing if only it was more of a slow, smoldering burn instead of a super quick flare-up. Another point of contention was the insta-power. Our MC Lilla, suffered from the Golden Child syndrome where she was the last and only hope to fight the Evil and save every "living" species. Once she found out that she was magical... BAM, she's not only magical, she's (almost) all powerful. She has a direct connection to the goddess of Light... I mean DIRECT... she says "hey, we need to chat" and the goddess of all that's good and holy comes a running.... POOF, one goddess delivered.
All things aside, I thought the world developement was solid, the character build-up was strong and the premise was unique. The ending was a bit cliffy... easily leaving room for book#2. Will I read onward? I'm going to leave it as a definite Maybe. The pros were entertaining and unique but the cons were many and irksome and THAT usually leads to a Pass from me BUT we'll see.
