The Xperyion Galaxy 1: Avalon (2020)


Imagine being a Space Traveler living in a spaceship that as traveled through space for ten thousand years.

Avalon was published on the 13th of March 2020. Written by Andreea Albu, it is the first book of The Xperyion Galaxy series. It is currently available in its Kindle edition and it has a length of 356 pages. Which is what I would call a comfortable size.

Synopsis:

After the Space Travelers arrive at their newfound habitable planet named Exer, Ava departs with the E3 on a reconnaissance mission to chart Xperyion in order to discover more habitable worlds. The protagonist and her companions discover a habitable planet with signs of civilization but upon their arrival, they are faced with an empty planet and all that remains are the infrastructure of a society that has mysteriously vanished. Ava is soon plunged into an incredible adventure that will transform her life forever.

Praises and Critics:

First and foremost, I want to begin by saying that the author is really talented in writing narratives. The story is great and intriguing. The characters are well developed and you relate easily to some of them. Furthermore, I like the tempo of the book, it is packed with action but at the same time, you get some good explanations about the worlds they visit and their origins. On a different note, I would of like to have more accurate astronomical details. Just to give you one example: when they first set out to explore Xperyion, Ava and her small group enter a new stellar system. Then they passed the first body in the system, a giant gaseous planet like our own jovian planets, the author then describes the planet as being a thousand times bigger than their ship. To me, it doesn’t make sense, that a ship who contains such a little group of travelers be a thousand times smaller than a giant planet. I don’t want to sound like a know-it-all but it got me thinking while I was reading, I lost track of what I was reading and I had to go back to make sure I did not misunderstand what I had read. Hey, who knows maybe the space travelers are human that left from our Milkyway galaxy, or maybe they are a species of space giants with gargantuan ships, which explain the ratio ship/planet.

Recommendations:

I certainly recommend this book it was a good read. This space opera was certainly an original and riveting story. I think that readers that like science fiction will surely be delighted. It is a good book to get into the genre has it is lightweight in terms of book thickness. Give it a try you will not be disappointed. Furthermore, I can’t wait to read The Xperyion Galaxy book II, which will surely come out in the near future.

Rating:

I think this book deserves four stars out of five because it was entertaining, well written, original, and a science fiction theme. I would of give it five stars if it wasn’t for those astronomical misinterpretations.

Special thanks:

To begin with, I would love the thank Andreea Albu for writing this awesome novel. Additionally, I would also like to thank her for sending me her book for me to review. Thanks again.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
