5 feather #bookreview of KYRATHABA RISING by William Bryan Miller


170 years from now, aliens decimate Earth. A relative handful of humans survive, hidden in deep subterranean enclaves that offer some protection from surface radiation. Although the main attack is now seven years in the past, one alien ship remains in orbit, and the conquerors are not content merely to let humanity lick its wounds…


This is the type of book that’s hard to do a review on because I don’t want to give anything away. The plot, or should I say multiple plots, keeps you going back and forth, which personally I love. It’s sci-fi without going into the dreary, unnecessary, technical details. There is no confusion of characters and I became involved in the story almost from the beginning. My favorite character didn’t make itself known until the end, Mephord. Before that, it was Grant Thompson. What he finds in the subterranean water system is mind blowing. Makes me wonder, What if?
Yes, it ends with a cliffhanger, but this is definitely a series I want to finish. There are so many questions that we, the Readers, need answers to. And there are enough twists and turns to keep anyone with an active imagination happy. I love the whole concept of Kyrathaba. I love computer RPG’s so this feeds my Mage/Ranger fantasy. Now you’ll have to read the book to find out what I mean.
If you like action adventure and sci-fi, this will be right up your alley. I give this book my 5 feathers. My poor goose is going to be bald.
FOOTNOTE: At the time of my initial review, I wasn’t aware the author would not be finishing this series.  So, he has a lot of disappointed fans.


About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down. About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done. So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made. One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors. Anyway, enough about me.
