Review: Time’s Tempest by M. J. Moores

Time's Tempest - Official Book Cover

Embarking as a guide into the death zones that are the Deserts, Taya leads a group of civilians who blindly follow a prophet obsessed with preventing the planet Xannia from environmental self-destruction. Here, Fate and Destiny wage war propelling an epic search for truth amidst 2000 year old lies, in opposition to a government bent on burying ancient secrets and anyone who goes looking for them.

 As Taya desperately attempts to keep the prophet and his followers alive, this journey forces her to grapple with the circumstances of her past which have aligned to hurdle her into her darkest memories; making choices she never wanted to consider; learning truths she was never meant to know.

Review

Time’s Tempest is an epic journey, with so many twists and turns my head is still spinning. There is action throughout, and the intrigue, the sheer excitement of the journey had me completely hooked.

I love conspiracy theories, so add in science fiction, prophecies, destiny and a fight for the truth, and it equals one grand adventure. One which is too good to miss. I found myself immersed in a new world, and life on Xannia was extraordinary. The hierarchy is well established in the beginning, introducing the Kronik and their own brand of government. M.J. describes the world beautifully; the descriptions are well written and the colour she provides is exquisite.

The novel is told from Taya’s point of view and I really loved her character. It’s not only her strength and resilience, her sense of authority. It is her quirky ways and the fact she has real heart – that’s what really draws a reader in.

Taya is a government contractor who accepts a mission to guide a prophet and his followers into the Deserts. What begins is more than a journey of discovery. The group face danger at every turn, but within the danger, the conflict and the quest to find the ultimate truth, there is a deep sense of connection. In its essence, it is a beautiful love story.

The relationship between all the characters is engaging, often electric. The first time Taya meets the prophet, Dezmind (face to face), I could feel the power in them, and the more time I spent with them, the more I grew to love them. But I liked getting to know each member of the group as they journeyed together, fought for each other, and drew on each others strength. I can’t say too much about what they faced in the desert, without giving too much away. I enjoyed it so much I don’t want to spoil it for you.

I said it earlier – this story is too good to miss.

    1. Take a look at the free Lost Chapters that happen before the action of the book. You can find them at Smashwords, Kobo, Barnes & Noble and the ibook store 🙂 “Time’s Tempest – The Lost Chapters” – there are 4: The Gauntlet (1), Probationary Effect (2), The Platinum Hall Debacle (3), & Finding Truths (4). They can give you a sneak peak at what’s to come 😉

  1. Oh, Melissa – you make my heart sing 😀 I love that you “get it” with the story and especially Taya. I’ve had a few reviewers not understand why someone would like her because she’s so self-righteous and bitchy at times… but aren’t we all? Thank you for the absolutely wonderful review 🙂

    1. It is my absolute pleasure 🙂 I got her from the moment she stood up to the profressor and only liked her more as time went on. It was wonderful to share her journey and you should be so proud of the book 🙂

      1. Honestly, the reality of having written and published a book is only just hitting home this week – especially today with your insightful and inspiring review. This truly shows me that what I have to offer is ‘reaching’ people – now that’s a high let me tell you, lol!
