They had a deal…
One hundred years in the future, Earth’s decimated population jumps at an alien offer of inter-stellar technology. All they have to do in return? Travel to the far side of the universe and save the dying planet Dremiks.
Some agreements are easier to keep than others…
The crew and passengers of ISA shuttle Hudson are about to test the extent of their loyalties. Can they trust aliens—or humans? Will honor and friendship triumph over greed and deceit?
Dremiks is Davis’s debut novel. This is a story of immense proportions and great complexity, and I take my hat off to Davis for getting the entire story told.
I did not find the first half of the book easy to read. There were many scene changes that were difficult to follow, and the quantity of POVs made for a somewhat confused reader. Given the rocky start, towards the middle of the book I began to be unable to put it down. The narrative settles down into the story around then, and what a compelling story.
Personally, I wish that the romance between Maggie and Brett had had a few more hints about Brett’s feelings for Maggie sooner. There are hints along the way that he is only currently by-the-book (both personal and work) because of a previous relationship, but hardly any specific references to any attraction to Maggie – if any.
I loved the Dremiks – in conception. And the mystery of their planet. That was inspired. I would have loved to get to know Dwax better – see inside his mind a bit more.
I hope that this is not the last book about Maggie and Brett – and the Dremiks, of course – that we see, as I’d love to explore this universe further.
