I received a free ecopy of this book from the author.
After reading the first couple of chapters of The Zarion: Saving Mankind, I almost decided I couldn’t finish it. The grammar is distracting but even worse is the constant switching back and forth between first person and third person. I decided to stick with it, though, since I like the concept of the book.
The Zarion: Saving Mankind is science fiction with two different alien races fighting over Earth. The Zarion are trying to protect Earth from the Fallen, an evil alien race.
The main character, Davis, finds out that he is the first human/Zarion and that his destiny is to have a role in saving mankind. There’s a lot missing as far as character development and the characters’ emotions being portrayed well enough for me to be able to empathize. One example is the office romance that isn’t actually a romance. Davis and Jeanette seem to instantly fall in love without knowing each other at all.
The Zarion: Saving Mankind was not the easiest book to read but I believe, with a good editor and some serious rewrites, this could be a good book.
