I received Empress of a Thousand Skies by Rhoda Belleza from the February FairyLoot box. The box was amazing I am now signed up on the monthly subscription. The subscription boxes have opened my eyes to so many new book that I would have missed out before, even with my eyes opens to a different selections of books I would have over looked this book. This book is more science fiction than fantasy which I hadn’t read much of before, but I will now be looking out for them too, to the detriment of my bank balance.
Empress of a Thousand Skies follows Rhee the Crown princess of Ta’an the last in her bloodline who will take her place on the Thorne on her 16th birthday. Rhee lives in a world where peace is a delicate situation, peace has been reach after many years of war between planets. But Rhee comes to realise that not everyone want peace and what they will do to start a new war.
I am always jealous of writer that can create these amazing and detailed world that are nothing like what we have or every read before. The world and the people of Empress of a Thousand Skies are so different and interesting that you could easily have books about the different planets, its people and it histories and that would be fascinating in its self.
I always enjoy when the writer has chapters that follow different characters, Rhoda does that with Rhee and Alyosha they have very different lives but their stories are intertwined. It also helped me get a better understand of the world and what there is to lose if they don’t succeed in their personal missions. Another reason I like this is that it keeps the pace of the book up, so something is always happening that moves the story on.
I will be looking out for the next book in the series, as I want to see what happens next but also so I can get to know the character and the worlds better.
I give this book 4 out of 5.
