Envy of the Gods – Reserve Review

Envy of the Gods – Book Review

Envy of the Gods, a science-fiction novel, has a cast of 5 main characters that cope an increase to management, tough ethical decisions, the re-discovery and use old textbooks, and also a society that aims for a much better, more effective lifestyle.

In a fierce and brutal age, much like our age of barbarian kingdoms, the novel takes the reader via enormous social as well as governmental changes. Cold, power hungry Duke Atan Ishtba gets on his way towards unchallenged dominance of surrounding kingdoms. Yet Raphela’s extreme elegance not only brought him to his knees. All his initiatives at charming her with gems and finery are just fruitless. Her heart lay with the rightful leader that is destined to rule the land with a caring as well as resourceful heart. Between both they bring education to the masses, equality to females and much better financial situations for the public.

This is not done with some sort of super-human power, but instead with real effort, learning to utilize their minds creatively and also through the kindness of the Ancients– who left a composed legacy of their sophisticated understanding. The faithful support of pals like Mahtso as well as Fatell, aid these 2 via their numerous experiences.

The author never ever informs us much regarding the Ancients, the surface or other such background details. I was unaware, until it was made clear in the end, that the book is based in an additional world entirely. Certainly, the characters were fairly most likely to be of humanoid life. Envy of the Gods is really interesting indeed, and deserves a second read.

I do, nonetheless, feel it is required to articulate some adverse comments. The back cover does not discuss guide extremely well at all and the front cover picture does not have much appeal. I felt, that sometimes, some of the occasions were not exactly believable or could fit a reasonable schedule. Yet then, science-fiction genres can press numerous limits that various other genres can not.

This 320-page novel by Andrea Savitch is the first in the trilogy and though it does not require succeeding books, the author has actually developed enough interest to tempt visitors to ask yourself where she will take them following.
