This review is for the Kindle edition ebook.
Who can you trust, when your entire known world is turned against you? Who do you go to when all you were taught seems to be lies?
Khe is special, in many ways. As a member of the farming commune, she must learn to live in harmony and peace. As a member, she was broken. As a good commune member, she must help grow the harvests as big as possible. And, she has learned she must never question her leader. When she realizes the leader is not reporting her abilities correctly, Khe makes a decision that changes her life and makes her question all she has been taught.
The plot as written is great. The decision to go against all Khe knows and attempt to help herself had me cheering for her. I must admit, I often cheer for the underdog in life. This book had me wishing and hoping Khe would be a winner. Going against the grain is very difficult in life, and it is well presented in this story. I found the beginning to be a bit confusing, it bounces between the present and the past. However, do not let that be a block to reading this wonderful story.
This book is well worth reading. It is very entertaining, without being another science fiction “man in space” story. It is an exciting, fast moving story of someone that’s different, without wanting to be different. Alexes Razevich has done an excellent job writing a different type of science fiction, that lets the reader keep guessing.
I can easily recommend this book to readers of science fiction and fantasy. Anyone tired of outer space chases and outer space wars will enjoy Khe. I would very much like to see more works by this author. An ability to write science fiction without following the mainstream is a refreshing change.
