Publisher's Summary

Past meets future in this tale of giants, dwarves, starships, and medieval warriors.
A starship crashes in the land of giants and pits a space-faring race of humanoids against a barbarian race of warrior giants.
The Fomorian giants watch in awe as a celestial object streaks across the sky on the eve of Samhain, the bloodiest pagan festival of the year. Druids proclaim that it's the prophesied Destroyer, and that the end of the world is near.
Fomorian mission: seek and destroy whatever fell to Earth. Starship mission: stay alive.
One giant has his eye on the blonde-haired Brigit, whose fiancé awaits her in a nearby star system, and the giants attempt to barter for her. Refusing their "generous offer" could put the starship crew at even greater risk. Brigit's actions at the barter table stun the giants, who've never encountered a woman so brazenly bold.
Five humanoid races are plunged into a battle for supremacy - giant Fomorians, Humans, Bigfoots, extraterrestrial Tirnogians, and Fenn dwarves - as a child of prophecy lives hidden in the shadows, waiting to fulfill his destiny.

It didn’t seem like good story telling

Short but not-so sci-fi type story has more drama and family politics element to it, except for the names and the use of words technology and starship, the overall science fiction element is very scarce considering the book belongs to that genre.

The story starts out with a very chirpy Tirnogian blonde-haired girl asking for a last get-away trip with her father before her wedding with a handsome man in the near by “star system” and requesting the crew members of the starship, they’re travelling in, for a detour towards Fomorian Earth. Not surprisingly enough, they crash in the land on Earth and thus the actual family drama begins. Because of one mistake, these people are stranded in another system ruled by giants and struggling to be not destroyed by them.

The nomenclature seems way too complicated to get a grip on the story initially, but once you are aware of the characters the only thing matters is who is a giant, a Tirnogian, a Fenn, Bigfoot and a humanoid. Its a war between the races and is built up on a prophecy, eventually leading to the fall of evil. There were also multiple stories going on simultaneously which made it a little difficult to catch up, nevertheless, it was a quick and entertaining read, but not if you’re expecting something sci-fi type.

The writing was not flowy and smooth, so the time lapses were not noticeable. It didn’t seem like good story telling, although the story itself kept me interested to know the end.The war at the end was filled with action which contributed to about only last hour of the story. Elan O’Connor’s narration was not impressive but not bad, the voices felt a little high-pitched, although the variation was great, production was fine.

POSSIBILITIES WERE ENDLESS..BUT JUST MEH STORY!

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

I requested this because I like this narrator, she is funny, and I think she is very talented...but this fell flat in so many areas...the world building was pretty good...but the story jumps around a lot and there isn't enough to it to justify all the jumping around in my opinion...YMMV! Narrator is good though!!!
