Maicee is known to his peers as a fresh surgical graduate, distinguished and highly ambitious in his field. What they do not know is that he has a hidden past that haunts him in his dreams. When his uncle Kabi stumbles upon a Chamonkey, a talking, monkey-like creature, that he alone knows belongs to Maicee's royal sister, Princess Ausanne, Kabi knows it is time for the war between the light and the dark and for Maicee to uncover his true blood strength, borne of a human and an Archangel, that would be their ultimate weapon against the Supreme Emperor. However, having just been offered an illustrious career by his professor, and not knowing the truth of his past, Maicee refuses.
Nonetheless, he is dragged into the battle. His reluctance is contrasted by his best friend and equally brilliant surgeon, Ben-ho, who joins the team enthusiastically with a self-serving agenda. Joined soon after by his sister, Princess Ausanne, whose blood ties with Maicee are only known by Kabi, the four embark on a journey across the world of Archeonis. Will Maicee and his companions survive the trap set by the Supreme Emperor and save the world from impending disaster or watch it burn to waste?
Three Boundless Stars
New Dawn is part one in the Sci-Fi Series Divine War. It is followed by High Noon and Dark Moon, all are available on Kindle Unlimited. I thought the story was very well written and quite original. Although I did see some Star Wars influences. I wished the story would have been more about Maicee. He is supposed to be the main character but his uncle was given so much time. I get it, he is badass and we need to see Maicee's potential but half the story Maciee isn't in it. I feel like New Dawn is just the build up for the other two books. While New Dawn was exciting at times, and had lots of action, there is a lot going on. There are tons of secrets to be revealed later that keeps you intrigued even when things slow down. Overall this is a pretty good start to a well thought out and complex Sci-Fi story. Reading the blurb for the next book High Noon it looks like more surprises are in store.
