About the author:
Born and raised in Long Island, Michael has always had a fascination with ghosts, horror and fantasy writing. Earning a degree in English and an MBA, he has worked various jobs before settling into being a full-time author. He currently resides on Long Island with his wife and children.

About the book:
The Darracia saga continues with all the key players spread out and searching for answers throughout the solar system. Prince V'sair struggles to hold his fractured kingdom together without help from his family. His stepbrother Zayden is on a vengeful hunt for his evil uncle Staf Nuen, the orchestrator of the original coup, is making unholy alliances with nefarious new allies. Like the comet zipping across the horizon, all the different factions are heading for a collision course that will test both their faith and power. 

My take:
Have you ever thought about how life would be if you lived in a different place or different time? Or maybe even one of the other planets that are placed out there in space. Well, Collision: The Battle For Darracia, by Michael Phillips Cash could give you an idea. I have not read many science fiction books. Actually, this one I am thinking is the second one that I have read. When I first picked up the book, the cover alone drew me in. I thought it looked like a really interesting book. I was right.

This book happens to be the second one out of a series of three. Even though I haven't read the first one, I was still able to follow along and understand what was taking place in the story. I didn't feel as though I was missing a lot of background from not reading the first book. The author did a great job explaining a little about each character's background and where they are headed. His writing style is very simplistic along with the font size, which allowed me to easily follow and finish the book. He is also very descriptive and I was able to picture what I thought each of these characters looked like or even some of the ships they traveled in. It would have been nice to see maybe one or two characters on the front of the book so that one could see if their imagination matched up to what he envisioned.

I feel as though most science fiction lovers would enjoy reading this series. The other two books in the series are Schism: The Battle For Darracia and Risen: The Battle For Darracia.

This book was given to me by Bostick Communications in exchange for my honest review.
