Gripping Sci-Fi Epic in the Making
Science fiction stories have to grab me early on to appeal to me. I am looking for a good story, intriguing and complex characters, and a universe I can believe in. All these things I have found in The Ursaverse Volume I. I have just begun reading this story and I am already hooked.
Read the story now
The writing is intelligent and not simply generic sci-fi or filled with the usual clichés. Though the story moves between timelines, this does not break its flow and it builds into the drama. The two brothers at the centre of things are initially shown to us in the midst of their struggles, torn apart by their pasts and now rivals rather than siblings. Even in the prelude, we see a glimpse of who they were, who they are and get a sense of the tension between them. It will be interesting to see how these characters develop further in the story.
I also enjoyed the initial introduction and the asides by the Fatescribe. I know, it sounds strange to rave about an introduction, but I loved this little touch and how it subtly introduced us to the following adventure.
I look forward to reading more from the Ursaverse and discovering its many stories!
