Publisher's Summary

Kendro, King of the Aonise, can do nothing to prevent their sun from collapsing, consuming their home planet, Letháo, in a single fiery blast. Running out of time and options, he evacuates the entire population, setting off into the unknown galaxy in four crowded ships. Under constant danger from their ancient enemy, the Zefron, treasonous dissent seeps into his inner circle. Threatened inside and out, Kendro struggles with whom to trust, until a mysterious vision finally brings hope to the distraught king. A new home awaits the Aonise - if Kendro can only unite them long enough to survive the journey.

Just did not grab me..

What did you like best about The Secret King: Lethao? What did you like least?

Nothing really grabbed at me, there was a lot of action but no substance. I did not connect or relate to any characters. I read other review and there was a mention of Battle Star Galactica but it did nothing for me.. never watched the show.

Could you see The Secret King: Lethao being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Maybe... Battle Star Galactica.. ?

Any additional comments?

There was no connection for me to the book. Even the different names of all the characters was so foreign to me that I was not even paying attention anymore. Maybe if I have watched Battle Star Galactica it would have made more sense.This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

Richly Drawn New Universe

Dawn Chapman has conceived of a detailed, intricate society with characters that are intense and compelling. Kendro must save his people from a dying sun, an enemy bent on destroying them for apparently no reason at all, and from enemies within his own royal house. In the middle of it all, he has to find the energy and alliances to save his son and hold his number one together as well.

Aonise who seem on the king's side to begin with turn out to be enemies and others who appear sinister turn out to be friends. In the middle of it all are complex family relationships with familial struggles to work out. This is a story science fiction story fans will be able to sink their teeth into. I, for one, will be on the lookout for the next book in the series to see if Kendro can overcome all the obstacles placed before him and find the courage to face his greatest enemy and save his family and people.

Greg Tremblay does an excellent job bringing this universe to life. Each character has a distinct voice that he accomplishes through surprisingly subtle variations. I enjoyed the story much more because of his ability to consistently pronounce all of the exotic words used to create the people and language used to create the Aonise culture and society.

I received this book for free from Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.
