Hidden Sunlight 1. Aspects of Dawn

   (3 reviews)

Facing a life-changing medical procedure, 14 year old Shay approaches it with the same detachment, confusion and dread that has haunted his emotions for as long as he can recall. Yet what follows instead is something that he could not have anticipated in his craziest dreams, and everything he knows is about to change forever.

This story (and sequel) definitely sets the standard to base all stories by, regardless of genre. The storyline is compelling and beautifully written. The characters don't disappoint: they captivate you and take you along for a ride through all that they experience. You'll want to be Shay. You'll want to experience Mira. And you'll definitely WANT a certain Russian...

This story has everything a good SciFi needed. It also has a great Romance feature to it as well. Excellently written, and captivating. The characters come alive, and you feel a connection to them. I highly recommend it. Five Stars.

Although I read this story years ago, a recent note by the author compelled me to leave this review, so here goes.

Content on GA, like most human endeavors, follows a Pareto distribution: only 20% of it is worth reading at all, only 20% of that is any good any only 20% of that is truly art.  Hidden Sunlight falls into that last category.

This book isn’t a great story by GA standards - it’s a great story by any standards.  It ought to be published and read widely.

From the first chapter until the nail-biting conclusion, the adventures of Shay and those he meets on Aspira draw you in.  The world-building is first-rate, the science believable (I’m a physicist by training and my disbelief was suspended) and the characters made me care about them. I read this while it was being posted, with sometimes long gaps that only heightened my anticipation.

If you like science fiction at all, you’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t stop what you’re doing and start reading this book right now.  Stellar’s three books are all in my GA top 10 and I’ve been reading this site for 15 years.

Response from the author:

I don't know what to say.

Thank you for the regard with which you hold me. It Is truly my pleasure.

However I would remind you that the 'third book' I currently have is Spirit of Fire which is NOT science fiction. It is its own brand of contemporary fantasy. Yet another addendum on that is that I am working on the actual third book for the sci-fi trilogy.  So, 2021, I hope.
