    As a bonafide English teacher, I have read a wide range of texts (by students, as well as published authors) and I have to admit I was more than pleasantly surprised with this engaging and, at times, gripping adventure that takes the reader through a diverse range of landscapes. I sincerely hope that Mr Gill is currently writing the second part of this tale, if he hasn't completed this already, because as soon as I had finished reading, I wanted to buy the second installment. I've recommended this to a wide range of teachers, as well as students. A MUST READ!!!!!

    Set in an alternate universe where many different races live as part of the organisation U.C.E.F., this book tells the story of a human girl’s escape from slavery on the planet Huron, aided by a mysterious ancient being, and her journey from galaxy to galaxy in an effort to attain freedom for herself and the ancient being. This would be a great book for a pre-teen or teen. The story is simple and the characters relatively straightforward so older audiences might find that the book held too little interest for them. For a younger audience, however, the book is a real page turner, powering through suspenseful adventures and imaginative creatures (especially the mysterious Gigantums, huge creatures that float in the middle of space, absorbing solar energy with their wings) in well-drawn futuristic landscapes. I couldn’t put the book down. I felt that I liked the main character, Elya, enough to wish to follow her through the book and into its sequels. She is very human: with fears and... More > fallacies, but is also strong, clever and determined. The ancient being is a more nuanced character, subtle enough to make readers keen to follow his development in further books in this series. Despite many grammatical errors and a tendency to place translations of alien language at the end of a paragraph instead of next to the alien’s speech, this book is well worth the read for anyone who enjoys science fiction and fantasy with a taste for action. I’m looking forward to further books in this series.< Less
