The Prodigal Sun Book
The whole Evergence book series is set in over 40.000 years in the future. We find out that the human race has evolved and mutated into many groups that differ quite a bit from each other. The Pristine Caste are the ones that look the most like the humans of today as their resemblance is as far as it goes.
The others are way different. A lot has changed in the human race in those 40.000 years as almost all of the history of Earth has been lost as humans have expanded almost throughout the whole Milky Way galaxy.
Commonwealth of Empires
Sean starts the story by letting us know that the galaxy is being ruled by the declining Commonwealth of Empires. We meet the first ones to withdraw from the Commonwealth of Empires, The Dato Bloc, and they set out to cause nothing else but trouble with this decision.
We then meet some of the first main characters in this book, Morgan Roche, he is an intelligence officer for the COE who has a not so important task of escorting a Box which is an AI, something that is quite common in that future, to the colony on Sciacca’s world.
The Dato Bloc
We finally come across the troublemakers, The Dato Bloc, as they ambush the ship of Morgan Roche. The Dato Block fighters were after this Box and as Morgan escapes barely to the surface of the planet she is starting to become a very popular character with a very important task this time, unlike before.
Soon starts a very important quest that meets many dangers, adventures, and life-threatening decisions. The Box which we mentioned is an Artificial Intelligence being, starts asking questions of its own, making things more complicated. For the sake of not spoiling the whole story in our review of The Prodigal Sun book, we will let you find out how this amazing story ends, and how it continues in the next book from the series.
You are definitely in for some exciting adventures, dangerous battles, meeting some crazy characters, and much, much more.
