Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Today I am excited to share with you my review of an awesome book, The Betrayal of Ka by Shea Oliver. I’d like to send a huge thank you to Shea for giving me the chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
It’s hard for me to thoroughly explain this book as it has a few different arcs that tie into each other towards the end of the book. It is a science fiction novel about a young boy named Ka who gets caught up making some bad choices that ultimately result in his going to prison for murder. From there his life takes many twists and turns which take him far away from his home. While all this is happening to him his home planet is involved in space exploration and the conquering of other planets for profit and they have set their sights on earth.
That is a very very broad description of what this story is about. There is literally so much more at work in this plot that it was like candy to me. I was hooked on the story from beginning to end and when I wasn’t reading it I was thinking about it. It has a very interesting, complicated plot with complicated characters. It is told through multiple perspectives which I loved for this story, it felt very well rounded and the characters also felt very developed. My favorite character is Ka and I enjoyed seeing his journey from his fall to his redemption. I felt for him throughout the entire novel. This story was dark and unforgiving at times, but also hopeful and interesting. I found both the political and ethics systems in this book really interesting. I cannot wait to continue this series and will keep an eye out for book two!
Holy moly! I was not prepared for how much I was going to enjoy this book. I came to the sci fi game late in my life but have in recent years discovered that I love the genre so reading this book was such a pleasure to me and I highly recommend it to any sci fi fans.
