In the year 2067, a new world is discovered amidst the dark expanses of the cosmos. Harvesting the resources of this vast new planet, known as Xavier997, may be the only hope a post-apocalyptic earth has for survival. Upon arriving, however, the explorers of this promising new world discover they are not the only ones interested in Xavier’s rich resources, forcing mankind to fight for the new home they need so desperately, as well as defend the one they already have.
Welcome to the breathtakingly beautiful, yet horribly dangerous realm of Xavier, wherein lies treasures, resources, and secrets to both raise mankind from the ashes, or bring them to their knees…
This is how the author introduces us to his world! A marvelous world it is!!
I really enjoyed this book, it was quite hard to put down. There was very little for me to find wrong with The Scrolls of Xavier, book 1. The plot was interesting, the action was well paced and drawn out. Character development and interactions were very compatible to the story. Captain Michael Dawn was an excellent leader and proved to be a good reflection of military life; his personal angst and fatigue served to enhance the story rather than detract from it. His romantic growth was handled quite well also.
My only complaint was the small handful of spelling errors; they were so few in quantity so as not to cause a serious distraction from the pure pleasure of reading Mr. Ashley’s book.
I rate this book 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. A great romp in alien mud and blood!
