The Last Titan
Author: Craig Wainwright
Genre: Adult Sci-fi, Superhero
First they came as explorers. Then they came and interfered. Now, one has arrived on Earth with her gift of death.
On the run from the government and a local gangster, Daniel White thought things couldn’t get any worse. But then, he’d not reckoned on meeting a woman who informs him that his whole life has been a lie and he is in fact an alien brought to Earth as part of a surrogacy program…
All right, so I am a little behind on book reviews. Let’s just say, February has been a busy month.
Marching onward into March. Ha. Haha.
To the point!
Immediately, the story pulls you in. I was intrigued by this Daniel White character, and wanted to learn more about his history.
In chapter two, we are transported to Hellas, where chaos breaks out and a war begins. It was blow after blow and I couldn’t stop reading.
The story itself was well written. The plot flowed, coming together flawlessly at the end. All in all, it was a very entertaining read.
If I am totally honest, I do not read a lot of science fiction, so forgive my lack of knowledge on this bit, when I say the science-y stuff was very well written and believable. I enjoyed the creativity inserted into this novel.
While reading The Last Titan I could feel a different read to it, being that originates from the UK. It reminded me of those blissful days when I read Harry Potter for the first time. *le sigh*
I was immediately impressed with Wainwright’s ability to distinguish accents, for example one of the main characters grew up in the States and therefore could express herself as though she lived in America her whole life.
There is only one beef I have with The Last Titan. I don’t really like to put emphasis on my love for romance, because a story needs more than that. Come on. But I really, really do have a soft spot for romance, and while this novel has its share of moments *winks*, what I was really missing was the development of the relationship between the two main characters. They simply jumped right into the relationship after officially meeting.
DON’T MISUNDERSTAND ME. I get they are made for each other, and they basically already acquire their lovey-dovey emotions before meeting… but I get a thrill when it comes to first meeting and learning each other. But it’s not the story’s fault, it’s me. *It’s not you. It’s me.*
All in all, I have to give The Last Titan four out of five stars - and that is a spanking good rating in my books (pun intended). The only thing being my lack of knowledge in this genre. But hey! For someone who doesn’t read much sci-fi, I enjoyed this! Good job, Mr. Craig Wainwright!
