Synopsis

Unity took us to the stars.
The stars brought aliens to Earth.
Claiming both cost us everything.

A hungry alien empire known as The Collective has betrayed humanity. Earth is taken. Day-by-day, the ruthless Over-Seer harvests the planet we worked so hard to save, and only a mysterious group of individuals have found any success against him. The Elementals.

Damien Vilan is one of these human enigmas. Able to spawn black holes and even smother light, he is the first man to ever command tangible darkness. While Damien stands lonely in the crumbling Seattle Islets alongside his adopted alien brother and an eccentric AI, the occupying aliens are hunting him.

When a botched ambush on an enemy patrol wounds Damien’s brother, the trio is forced to test the weapon they’ve been building. If it works, it could change the downward spiral of the war, but if it fails and Damien’s dangerous powers are exposed? It could bring the Over-Seer himself crashing down on them. The tyrant would love to get his hands on such a powerful man, and he’d surely use Damien to find the elusive island sanctuary where other Elementals are gathering…

When every chance of success has faded with the light, who better to turn to than the man who wields darkness?

HOPE IS BORN IN DARKNESS

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***
 The book is good, but in my opinion not enough so to deserve the rave reviews.
The story, the creation of the world of the future and the consistency are all excellent, but the pace of action is far far too slow. There is too much unnecessary waffle giving details not essential to the tale. If the same tale had been told in less than 300 pages instead of nearly 600 I would have been giving it five stars.
