A space pilot, Brian Zaks, finds himself pulled into a tight situation when his employer offers him a chance at an insane treasure. Brian’s ex-girlfriend works on the same crew and asks for protection from the strange creature that lurks in the dark. After a few close calls, Elwood’s Privateers find themselves up against an ancient cult and some supernatural powers. This Horror-tinged Sci-fi adventure keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. While it uses many Christian elements (Not entirely restricted to one denomination), it doesn’t feel like a preachy book in any way. I think even an atheist could enjoy this book. It’s a great story if you’re looking to escape the real world for a while.
The unique design of the symbol superimposed caught my interest a little bit. But I honestly didn’t know I wanted to read it for sure until I read the description. The starburst on a black field gives it a good space feel but doesn’t reveal too much about the book. Overall, the cover is clean, crisp, and straightforward.
You’ll find yourself floating on your bed, couch, floor, or wherever you read as you flip through the pages of Uriel’s Revenge. You will find the romance between new and old flames. The danger arises at the most inconvenient times, as it is known to do, and propels the story along like a spacecraft thruster. The appreciation for this science fiction novel’s scientific side reassures the reader that Roome is a subject matter expert. All in all, I couldn’t be happier about this Indie-Author find and look forward to reading the second book in the series, The Fountain Mechanism.
