Book Review – Falaha’s Journey

Falaha's Journey Cover - Descent, The Pit, Perseverance

Falaha’s Journey Cover – Descent, The Pit, Perseverance

Title: Falaha’s Journey: A Spacegirl’s Account in Three Movements (Descent/The Pit/Perseverance)

Author: Jeno Marz

Smashwords | Amazon

I so love this series’ ability to do it all.

It’s an epic, but told with a singular voice. It’s a space-opera on a universal scale, but it leans heavily toward intricately detailed hard science. It has big action, but it revels in down-to-earth and touching, intimate moments. It’s often deadly serious, even downright gory at times, but it balances that with interactions full of warmth and humor. It is told from an alien culture and perspective, but resonates with very human wishes and hopes.  I know “this has it all,” has become a clichéd way of putting things, but what else can be said when a story has, well, everything?

There are a few practical things to note about Falaha. This is a complete omnibus edition, meaning you don’t have to wait to finish it. And while this series has a younger female protagonist, it is definitively adult in its sensibilities and action level. In all, this is a remarkable and inspired series and I hope someday to see more from Jeno Marz.

Rating: ★★★★★
