Guy Erma and the Son of Empire is a new three-part action adventure, set a long time ago on a planet far far away.
” Someone somewhere had decided Sas Darona plague could be used as a weapon.”
“They called them poison pills, and in some cases the glass eco-systems containing six venomous flies were displayed as part of contemporary interior decor.
Strange!” Karl Valvanchi mused, “When you consider the insects are practically unstoppable and breed exponentially into great clouds of death. These plague weapons went beyond deadly. They were planet-killers.”
13-year-old Teodor has found a way to escape from kidnap, how long before he is safely home?
13-year-old Guy Erma has run away from everything he has even known and no longer knows what the future holds.
Their adventure has forged an unexpected friendship, but do they really trust each other? Dare they share their darkest, deepest secrets??
The paths of Teodor Freyne and Guy Erma have now become one, their fate becomes that of the Empire they were born to when they discover a hidden terror.

I am 100% wrapped up in this young adult science fiction adventure. I probably shouldn’t because let’s face it, there is nothing young adult about me, but I really am enjoying this entire series.
There is plenty of action (nothing too graphic). There is betrayal and loyalty and conniving. There is politics. There is suspense.
I don’t want to give too much away, but you definitely have to read the first two books in this series to understand the third.
There are still some fuzzy areas that I am not entirely sure I have figured out, but I really enjoy that part. It keeps me wanting more (and I am very impatiently waiting for more!)
I am curious to know what is going to happen with Guy and Teodor. What is going to happen to Freyne and the Regent. What is going to happen with Chart Segat and the Emperor.
There are so many characters and so many things left up in the air.
A lot happened in book three and I am trying to be vague because I don’t want to give anything away. I would venture to say that more happened in book three than it did in book one and two. I feel the first and second book were really just settings us up for this book and what is yet to come.
I am telling you, if you are into the science fiction, young adult type books; Guy Erma and the Son of Empire is a fantastic read.
I would venture to guess that a strong reader who enjoys science fiction would also enjoy this. I’m not sure my 9 year old daughter would enjoy it, but I would venture to guess a 10 year old boy would.
