Title: The White Wolf and The Darkness
Author: Kevin Gubernatis
Genre: Sci Fi / Magic
***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
The Covenant Of Earth Nations, Earth’s governing body, has lost contact with a deep space research station orbiting a black hole known as the Dark Star.
COEN has sent a team of specialist commandos to discover the reason for this communications blackout. Along with these specialists, they sent a young magician, Asala. She and her commandos are prepared for any situation involving entities supernatural or mundane, or so they believe.
Little do the COEN Corps commandos and their magician know that what awaits them aboard the Dark Star is far beyond anything ever experienced. A presence waits in the shadows, hungry and curious. Can Asala confront this terror and keep her commandos alive, or will she and all those in her charge fall victim to…The Darkness?
This is Sci-Fi with a difference. About 1,000 years in the future, magic is in use throughout every aspect of living – including military hardware and protective clothing. Asala’s team certainly needs it. The ‘entity’ referred to in the synopsis is as unpleasant and hard to deal with as any I have ever read about (and I’ve been reading Sci-Fi for over sixty years.)
You will join Asala as she struggles to deal with it, and will even wonder if she and her team will ever manage it. This is at the same time as trying to work out (with her) just what the ‘it’ is. Definitely worth the five stars I gave it.
