My 5 star #bookreview of The Loranth by Jean Kilczer


Enter Jules Rammis: exobiologist, traveler, reluctant hero.

While searching for the missing link among the mammal life of planet Tartarus, Jules finds more than what he was searching for among the great reptiles of this primal world. Deep beneath the surface, a spectacular culture of intelligent life forms quietly roams the sunken seas. After walking into the lair of a demented member of the species, Jules finds out that the creature plans to destroy humankind and intends to use him as a weapon.

Jules is thrown in a battle against an enemy with staggering telepathic powers and the ability to destroy entire worlds; even Earth. Will he prevail, or succumb when pitted against these impossible odds?

The Loranth is the first book in Jean Kilczer’s Star Sojourner series, a science fiction adventure. If you enjoy unique, well-written scifi with believable characters, you will love the Star Sojourner series.

One bad thing about loading your kindle with a ton of books, you’ll miss a book you wish you’d read when you first downloaded it.  This is one such book.  Almost a year later, and here’s my review.

I really enjoyed this story.  The storytelling was a bit rough in places, but that didn’t take me out of the wonderful world that Kilczer built.  I was hooked from the first chapter as Christine discovers a partial skull of a species unknown on the planet Tartarus.  A planet full of reptiles, but no mammals.  But it’s what finds Christine that moves this story onward.

The main protagonist is Jules Rammis, a man running from a past mistake.  Though, he doesn’t see it that way.  To him, his reason for staying on Tartarus, and not home on Earth with his wife and child, is to track down the missing mammalian link.  It’s not until he’s made a hunter-slave by the evil Loranth, Kor, that he finally comes to terms with his past. 

The world Kilczer built is alive with very unique and different life forms.  Even the different aliens that came to study the planet are varied and interesting.  I love the fact that Kilczer used phrases unique to the story and planet.  That made everything so believable.  I felt I was right there with Jules and Jack as they went to confront the malicious Kor and stop his diabolical plans to destroy all Terrans. Did they make it in time? 

Though the story didn’t end with any cliffhangers, I felt invested enough in Jules to want to find out what the future holds for him.  Will his wife take him back?  So, I’ve bought the next book in the series.  I just hope it won’t take me a year to read it. 

If you love a fast-paced, suspenseful, sci-fi space story, then this one is for you.  I give it 5 feathers.

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.
