Review:

In part two of Guy Erma and the Son of Empire, Sayginn, Regent of Freyne, Teodor’s mother, enlists the aid of ally Karl Valvanchi, a Zaracan warrior of Sas Dorana to find her kidnapped son. Sayginn, as Queen Regent, is expected to marry the Emperor in order to form an alliance and produce heirs for the empire. Despite the fact that they come from different worlds and look completely different from each other, Sayginn and Karl form an unexpected bond of trust and are able to read each other’s thoughts. With their combined telepathy they know that Theodor is alive but have no idea of his condition or whereabouts.

Together with Guy Erma “who spins like the wind and bites like a goran”, they put together a rescue mission. The mission is dangerous, as they must face live Battle Borgs, half men-half-machines who obey without conscience. As hostages, both Guy and Teodor, both highly skilled athletes and students in combat are pitted against each other to figh to the death. Guy is given the command to kill as Prince Teodor must be removed as heir. Guy must obey.

This incredible story continues with the same amount of vivid imagery and description as the first segement, Kidnap. Different storylines begin to blend together and we find ourselves cheering for both Guy and Teodor.

Although I enjoy watching sci-fi and fantasy films, I am completely new to reading these genres. This complex story had me a bit befuddled at the beginning but as I continued reading on everything fell into place. Looking forward to part 3 – Exile.
