The Risen EMpire

I know this wasn’t on the list to read, but I picked it up at Dymocks before I left and really enjoyed it! Read it, I command you.

The book has a host of things I liked: A love story (I’m a sucker, yes, but when you’re parted from your loved one its much more intense) between two likeable, strong and complex characters, a great female character battling with her empathic abilities and her job as Senator, awesome AIs who have character and finesse, battleships, honour and action and of course the old political subertfuge, rebellion and betrayal.

This is a fast paced book, with a lot going on on the different planets. The world itself is great medieval yet sci-fi – and I love a personlity cult dictatorship. Facsinatingly evil.

Anyways, if you haven’t read it, do and let me know what you think.

Cool. I have looked at Scott’s book before but never picked it up. Ellen and I haven’t had a club meeting since you left us, so will add that to the list for next time!

He also does a range of YA books which are v popular. Definitely give this a go – its well worth it.
