The Scalian Legacy

4 StarsThe Scalian Legacy is science fiction tale that follows a man named Jack Felder who thinks he is going on a leisurely trip in the Amazon, when he finds out his brother, Robbie, has been taken and Jack needs to save him. At the same time, a hundred light years away, another planet is brutally attacked. Jack’s rescue mission turns into an adventure outside this galaxy and into a battle to save not only Jack’s brother, but the fate of several other worlds. This alien invasion based story will take readers on a wild ride where they never know what to expect. It takes them beyond the world they know and introduces them to something new and unique.

Norman Monfort provides a tale that will keep readers on the edge of their seats waiting for more. And it seems this novel is ripe for a series of novels. The prologue treats readers to a vivid description of a planet named Helos 4 being attacked. I was immediately drawn in and the rest of the story just takes off from there. There is never a dull moment, nor does it ever feel like it is going too slow. Don’t try to predict what will happen in this novel because you won’t be able too, there are so many twists and turns, you’d think you’re riding a roller coaster. You never know what to expect with this novel and that makes for a fantastically thrilling story. The writing is not highly complex with words most people don’t use every day; it is written plainly and right to the point without a lot of filler material.

There are points in the story where the characters talk about how belief systems effect how you handle tragedy, this is a part that is highly interesting and you don’t find in many books. What Jack has to say about what he believes is interesting and causes the readers to almost stop reading and think about how their own belief system affects the way they handle tragic times. Monfort writes in a way that makes the reader feel as if they are sitting and listening to the story being told rather than reading the story, which heightens the enjoyment of this story. Readers will find themselves engrossed in the story, unable to tear themselves away from the pages.

This book will thrill science fiction fans and military fiction fans. It has a little something for everyone in this novel. I highly recommend this novel to anyone looking for a new author to fall in love with. The Scalian Legacy is a book that would make a great addition to any bookshelf and will find itself being lent out to others to read.  It is easy to see why fans will be eagerly waiting more books from Norman Monfort.

We're always open to book review requests and have aspirations of one day being sucked into the Twilight Zone episode with Burgess Meredith where all he wants to do is read, but can’t until the world ends; you know what I mean?
