Writer (Daughter of Time, Book 2)
Two hundred years ago, Ambra Dawn, the Daughter of Time turned back time to save humanity and combat the tyranny of the Dram. With the aid of alien allies and her ability to bend space and time, the Dram have been pushed almost to the point of extinction. But the tide of the war has turned, and the victories are being reversed, and drastic measures are needed to restore the balance.
Lieutenant Nitin Ratava is an elite soldier, trained in the latest tactics and equipment to battle the Dram. And he has been entranced by Ambra Dawn since he first saw a hologram of her in school when he was a child. Some people worship her. Others hate her. But Ratava’s obsession is personal, love fueled by haunting dreams and a sense of connection. When he finds himself assigned to the Temple, deep in the Sahara, it is his chance to finally meet her. Their connection is deeper than he could have imagined, but it will draw both of them into a desperate mission against enemies they don’t fully understand, whose power may eclipse Ambra’s.
Writer: Daughter of Time, Book 2 is a deeply thoughtful and exciting scifi novel that hits all the right buttons, warping space and time and the expectation of the genre and still staying grounded in a modern, thrilling narrative. It stays fun while plumbing unexpected depths, and reminds me of Dan Simmons’ Hyperion and Endymion, though more approachable. This is the second book, but if you missed Reader, don’t worry about being left behind with Writer; it is immersive in the way of the best scifi, sucking you in and pulling you along. If you enjoy science fiction at all, take a look at Writer: it’s worth the read.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
