I so love a good space opera filled with space and land battles, impossible relationship and interstellar politics. And I do have to say that the THRONE OF NOVOXOS has all of those and more.
When I first started reading the book and met Comron I was immediately taken back to Dune but that impression didn't last for long. While there are politics, they seem to be more approachable then the ones in the old sci-fi standby. And to tell you the truth, I found Comron to be a bit of an ass. I know that a good portion of that is his upbringing by his insane father but still.
The character that I really liked is the one that Comron fell in love with Vaush. She is down to earth and just wants to make the world, or in this case worlds, a better place for everyone to live. So of course she saves Comron even though their families are deadly enemies because that is the type of person she is.
I really enjoyed THRONE OF NOVOXOS with its fast pacing, interesting characters, an unauthorized love and danger around every turn. I do think that my readers who enjoy space opera will enjoy it. There are a few sex scenes but nothing too graphic so this book would work for older teens as well as adults.
