A Must Read

What a great start to 2013 with my second 5 star book of the year. This goes to further show that there are so many fantastic indie authors with great stories to tell. So why not give them a try.

Primae Noctis by Aimery Thomas

This is a difficult review to write as I don't want to pepper it with clich├ęs and superlatives. But this book is epic in every sense of the word .

Aimery Thomas takes into a post-apocalyptic world were a dystopian society lives on lies and manipulation of a trusted few. All appears good on the surface but just beneath there is a more sinister and darker side. A cast of well-developed characters takes on a wild ride building up to a thrilling ending.

Yes the story does seem familiar in places and yes it is a long read. But the complexity of the story and the world the author build upon the pages had me enthralled all the way to the end. I wait expectantly for the next instalment of this epic saga. If you read only one book this year make it this one.

5 Stars
