Review: Grounded by April Scott-Goss

Author: April Scott-Goss
Release Date: February 7, 2014

Master Trilium Bishop and his platoon of knights are finally going home for good following five years of administering diplomacy and judgment to various societies across the galaxy. While sitting in his aircraft, Trilium’s gift of perception warns him that something is not right and before long, the Knights of Dena find themselves in a situation filled with little hope.

At the same time, Trilium’s brother, Knight Kalin Bishop is being treated by their father on Dena for wounds he acquired from a near fatal mêlée against a dragon. Kalin’s daydreams about his upcoming marriage are rudely interrupted when he is forced to fight his kinsmen in order to save Trilium and his legacy.

Do you ever just not know what to say about a book?

'Tis the season for political intrigue.  Trilium's brother, Titus, has decided (in true George R.R. Martin fashion) that he is going rule as Master and dethrone his elder brother.  The only thing he needs to do is kill all of his family members so that no one can go against his claim.

I enjoyed this book so much.  I had trouble putting it down.  The world Scott-Goss created was extremely interesting and very detailed.  I loved that there was space travel.  And there was a dragon.  And super powers.  So much awesomeness!  This book would have been spot on love for me with just a bit more revision.

The characters, wow there are so many characters introduced even though it's a pretty short book.  And yet they're all memorable.  And they all have great depth.  Leaving on a cliffhanger, I really hope that Scott-Goss decides to continue on with the next part of the story!

Grounded is a nice, quick read.  And the story was so intense.  I totally enjoyed it all the way through.  The story is imaginative and creative.  I highly recommend checking it out!

Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and that in no way changes my opinion of this book!
