The end of humanity will come through the Silver Sickle . . .
Farissa lives every moment with reckless abandon, for it may be her last. Any day now, the alien goddesses will harvest her and take her to the mysterious Silver Sickle, never to return. She’s accepted that. What she can’t accept is this new idea of freedom Zel has planted in her head. She’d give almost anything to be with Zel, but how can she run from her destiny if it means putting the whole kingdom in danger?
Everyone in the desert kingdom believes the goddesses are immortal, but Zel has invented a way to kill them. Now all he has to do is convince Farissa to run away with him and plant a seed of hope in her heart that she’s not destined to die. Little does he know that one seed of hope could change the course of the future.

Seeing the news that always has us Xpresso Books Tour for an honest review, I came across this book, is one of those books that do not explain how it is that attracts you, but yet it does, and in my case started with two words : steampunk and cyberpunk.
Not that I'm an expert in that type of genre, on the contrary, hence the attraction to this book, I wanted to know about these genres and wanted even more sci-fi DISCOVER that was in his heart this story.
By building the foundations of a new world, the duty of an author is to make the reader gets to imagine this place smoothly and that their characters be conformed to this world without any doubt. Both parties are in synchrony to help clear your imagination flow. And when this happens it is a delight.
There are aliens, robots, humans, worlds and not so different from the society we know but with a different touch points. What makes being dressed in a very especial.Y way holding hands with my favorite character: Farissa is strong and determined; and other characters that will make your evening great reading.
Maybe there was light spots where I had trouble with my reading, but nothing was resolved slowly. Contrary.
How to describe this book? As a treat for the imagination.
That's what I loved about this book, his story could imagine fácilmente.Y when a book makes your imagination flow. No doubt, you have to read it. If you're a fan of sci-fi history, this book is for you.
My Stars Review: 4.5
I was born in the jungles of Thailand, was raised in a small farming village in Iowa, lived in the middle of a Texan desert, and now abide in the Ozarks.
I like writing fairy tales, tall tales, thrillers, science fiction, and am seriously interested in transmedia storytelling.
