Synopsis from Goodreads:
Devan seeks the respect of his peers, rangers who protect their homeland Centara – an aerock so large that it can haul along smaller lands.
When Alessa’s aerock makes landfall, they bring more than commodities and supplies for trade. They bring memories of past mistakes.
They bring war.
The characters in this novel were quite interesting with unique and memorable and pronounceable names that you are drawn to. You know what everyone does and where they came from, but who they are and what they look like remains a bit of a mystery for many of the characters. The cast of prominent characters is so large that it is difficult to develop everyone sufficiently. I feel that I barely got to know a handful of them. The author also jumps back and forth between the various characters, and it becomes a little hard to keep straight at times.
Overall this was an ‘out of this world’ fantasy (excuse the pun) that would be enjoyed by those who enjoy outer space and fantasies. It is a story of good conquering evil with a twist, a kick, and a few spins.
