read review on episodes 1 and 2
On the other side Dr. Barkman is growing more and more frustrated with the new marshal. How long can he keep his secret from the 'justice for all' law keeper? With the sometimes inept deputy to the marshal showing that he may not fill Matthew's boots if he were to become the new chief of police, he must do something to stop the ambitious man from knowing too much.
As the two men prepare to battle, Matthew finds himself defending more and more the Ananke people - the very same ones/family who murdered his parents all those years ago.
When his wife who recovered from cancer is suddenly dying from a heart problem, Matthew faces a new challenge. Can he turn the other cheek to save his wife, to save his family?
A great book in which it being serialized has built the anticipation at the end of each episode. The characters met in the beginning don't lose their vibrancy and the dialogue is consistent throughout each chapter. The premise of the plot is a really good one - a doctor who carries out lifesaving operations but at the risk of another species. Is it still right to continue? Morey's series would have worked just as well as an 'in one go' novel, but the episodic way of treating it makes for an exciting discovery into the new world of Altair.
Even if you're not a 'sci-fi' fan, as I'm certainly not, guaranteed this book is still worth looking into. A highly recommended read.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author to review. The opinions expressed are my own and I am not not required to give a positive critique.
