“Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.” – Carl Sagan
I was recently asked by Project Kyle on Goodreads if I would read and review his new book Deep Cosmos and was supplied a copy in exchange for an honest review.
“Protect your sanity at all costs”
Those 5 words were the last spoken to David, a survivor of a cosmic tragedy. Now he finds himself running for his like and seeking refuge in a galaxy – a galaxy filled with danger and mystery.
The only way for David to survive is to hide and hide he does in pain sight, disguising himself as a space explorer called Nerd. In this disguise, David recruits crew members to join him in his adventures whilst also hoping that he can avoid any unwanted attention.
These adventures are a part of something bigger, the Deep Cosmos; an organisation which David is a part of…an organisation fighting for good.
But the galaxy is being threatened and David and his crew can no longer lay low. The criminal mastermind has a want for human life and for David and his team hiding is no longer an option.
“…ordered the mutilation of 685 subjects, including men, women and children.”
He must put an end to this mastermind before humanity becomes extinct.
“May the human race continue to prosper, and may better times come our way.”
But can the heroic team survive the challenges that face them or will they fall into the endless chasm of the Deep Cosmos.
The unpredictability of this story is only enhanced by the deception of the villains; and with plenty of twists and turns with plenty of action, this is a book which is sure to keep you entertained. Details you feel aren’t important pop back in to your mind as the story unfolds and that’s a credit to Kyle, the author.
One of the best and most admirable things about this story is the main character is on the autism spectrum – aspergers. There aren’t many books out there with the main character having a learning difficulty. Nerd’s ‘odd’ behaviour is explained further in the story, that there’s a reason behind his unique abilities and this in turn makes his character even more endearing. He keeps himself to himself and away from other but is actually a hero in this story and in turn sets an example to those who also have Aspergers – you are more than what others judge that you are capable of.
Whilst at times during the book I felt it difficult to connect with the emotions of the main characters, there were moments where you can connect with them. A great book nonetheless; perfect for teens, young adults and sci fi lovers alike. A fast read with lots monsters vs aliens and good vs evil action.
If you like the sound of this or just love sci fi, check it out.
Thanks so much for reading and thank you to Project Kyle for giving me the opportunity to review it.
Until next time,
