Victoria’s day starts out like any other aboard the transorbital ship, Phoenix. Such is the life of an emergency medicine specialist in the age of “post-discovery”. Sure, she had always dreamed of interacting with intelligent extraterrestrial life- the real thing, not those microbes on distant moons. Who wouldn’t? She was still happy with her career, however mundane and demanding it might be. That’s what it took to run a ship the size of a small city smoothly. Monotony. But all that changes one morning, and suddenly she’s not so sure she didn’t stick her foot in it…
Be careful what you wish for.
Escape had been their only drive, and even death was preferable to the alternative. But they never thought their flight for freedom would put them in an uncharted system. Forced to interact with an isolated world and its inferior, albeit curious people. When it affords them an unforseen and unprecedented opportunity to take back their world from those who seek to destroy them, however, Aderus begins to wonder if it wasn’t fate. Earth’s proposal is shocking and uncomfortable for a fierce, independent race that relishes in their solitude. But the more he learns of humans, the more he comes to admire and respect them. One, in particular.
Saving Askara is a novel I was desperate to read ever since discovering it and caught my attention right away thanks to its description which alludes to an extraterrestrial life which intrigued me. Now and then a reader will come across that one book that blows them away, it is a somewhat generic term, but that is what Saving Askara did to me… it blew me away and ever since completing it I have been thinking of its intricate and detailed story and how I need to re-read it! That is why I am already going to recommend Saving Askara to you lovely readers, and yes, it may be early on in my review, but Saving Askara is a novel not to be missed.
Saving Askara for me was thrilling, captivating and addictive right from the start and I felt this from beginning to end. Saving Askara was captivating to me from the start thanks to the unique premise of the story and the bewitching literature courtesy of the author, J.M. Link who from the start hooked me with her unique story that was unlike anything I have read before. It is rare to find a science fiction novel that is refreshing, and it is even more challenging to discover a sci-fi story that does not rely on gimmicks and ridiculous sequences!
Saving Askara is a phenomenal novel that will introduce the reader to the protagonist of the story, Victoria. Victoria’s days are somewhat mundane, Victoria is aboard a transorbital ship known as the Phoenix, and she is an ‘emegency medicine specialist in the age of “post-discovery.” So when Victoria’s days become less mundane when contact with an alien species is made, she welcomes it. But soon things get complicated when she meets an alien, and this book lovers is the premise of this science fiction romance novel that should not be missed!
The premise of Saving Askara is exceptional, original and unlike anything I have read before. I loved the many themes and elements explored throughout the book, and all themes are explored by Link wonderfully, and she does this by lacing these interesting themes throughout the text flawlessly and weaving them with the story. The result of this makes Saving Askara a highly addictive and fascinating read that is never once lackluster or predictable.
J.M. Link is a phenomenal writer who knows how to grasp her reader’s attention from the first page. Link instead of writing long, drawn-out builds up which are commonly found in science fiction novels, decides to ditch this approach and thrust her reader into the heart of the story straight away so that the reader is instantly captivated and immersed which is something I love in a story.
J.M. Link is not only a brilliant writer for her ability to captivate the reader’s attention straight away, but she is also an excellent author for her ability to lace exceptional twists and turns throughout her story that genuinely had me shocked at points! The combination of Link’s shocking twists and her explanatory powers will immerse the reader in the story and make them be able to visualize every detail, no matter how small. This writing approach is one of my favorites because it makes the reader feel included in the story and make the reader feel as if they are in the same situation as the protagonists of the novel.
Overall Saving Askara is a thrilling, compelling and thought-provoking novel that will easily entertain readers for many days and nights and so I, of course, have to award this stellar gem of a book five stars!
