Dreamtime: The Gil-Garem
Edmund Mortani lost his wife in the war between the Gil-Garem and the Sorisentine Dominion ten years ago. The pain that now seems to linger around him leads to him staring a new settlement far away in the borders of Sorisent’s wasteland, just to be rid if the Dominion. His settlement now thrives and is self-sufficient, with no reason to be influenced by the Dominion. When danger starts to get too close to his city, Edmund is dragged back into the Sorisent drama. As Edmund continues to be at the center of the Dominion’s drama, he further risks everything he has carefully built and the people he is protecting. Edmund doesn’t know who to trust or what to expect now that the Dominion has changed.
If you like science fiction novels with their own language and a complex storyline, then this book is just for you. This was my first sci-fi novel. I like that the story had its own language, because there aren’t many authors, which I know of, who take the time to think of a new language to intertwine with their story. The book also has a bit of romance between a couple characters. This is one of the things that caught my attention, because who doesn’t like a bit of a love story set in the dystopian future.
Personally speaking, the plot is brilliantly written, but at some point, it is a bit complex and hard to follow. It could just be the unique names of the settings and characters or it just could be me. I guess this book was too complicated for me. If other readers do enjoy the intricacy of this novel, then it will be a splendid read. C.S. Benjamin did a fine job in Dreamtime: The Gil-Garem.
