My #bookreview of REBORN (The Cartographer Book Two) by Craig Gaydas


Mankind faced extinction centuries ago, but with the help of the intergalactic Consortium they were rescued from the brink of destruction. This time, Nathan Chambers will have to fight a war on two fronts if he hopes to prevent their demise. The conflict will test the strength of his friendships, the strength of his body and the strength of his character, and he will need to shed his naive teenage persona and be reborn as the defender his allies desperately need.

Reborn introduces the Twelve Timeless, ancient survivors of a universal catastrophe who pledge their help to Nathan’s cause. Will their assistance be enough to prevent history from repeating itself?


This is the second book in the Cartographer series, and you can read my 5 star review of The Cartographer here .  At the end of book one, the fate of Earth lies in Nathan Chamber’s hands.  Will he be able to save Earth, and his parents from Meta and the Consortium? 

The first book was a light, adventurous tale.  This one starts turning darker.  No matter what Nathan does, his friends are dying and he can’t stop the destruction of everything he holds dear.  He even faces his own painful tragedy at the hands of Calypsos cohorts.  This book is appropriately named Reborn as that is what Nathan has to do.  To overcome the evil influence of Calypso and the Consortium, Nathan must grow into the leader the rebels so desperately need. 

I really like Nathan’s character.   When reality sets in, he rises to the challenge.  I feel his character is very believable.  As in the first book, there is plenty of action in this well-written plot.  We meet new worlds and characters, mainly The Timeless, people who survived the creation of the Universe.  They are considered immortal, but they really aren’t.  Each different character is very well-defined.  It amazes all the different varieties of life forms Gaydas envisions.  Some are quite ghastly.

If you’re looking for an adventurous space odyssey, I highly recommend this book.  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.
