    One thought on “Homecoming”

    1. Article first published as Book Review Homecoming by Sue Ann Bowling on Blogcritics.As humans explored the worlds, often new and different races were discovered During one of those explorations they discovered the Maungs, who have the ability to wipe out the entire human race It is here that they also meet the R il nai, a race of beings with powers and abilities that help to save them from extinction As the years move on humans have hybridized with the R il nai and have continued their spread ac [...]

    2. This is one of the best books I ve read all year I m a little surprised at that, because it s not perfect A tad too much telling, especially in descriptions of the world Character voices that sometimes are too forced or long winded The odd moment of confusion at the beginning, when trying to figure out what the world is like and who the people are.Yet when I reached the last page of Homecoming, I closed my Kindle with that undeniable sense of satisfaction I only feel when a story has brought me [...]

    3. Homecoming follows the story of several characters of different origins Some of these characters are slaves, some prominent leaders The book follows the stories of these characters, the choices they make, and the fears they face All of this takes place many thousands of years after our current time, when an alien race, the R il nians, the R il noids, and Humans coexist Intelligent life has spread throughout the galaxy, spanning many planets The fate of the Confederation, a coalition of many of t [...]

    5. I first discovered Sue Ann Bowling in 2012 I loved her blog, I loved her theme, and as I followed her afterwards, I loved what she was interested in and her view from Alaska I was a little confused by the serialised Jarn s Journal, which is a prequel to her books, but I read her novella Horse Power, and decided that I also loved her style, and looked forward to reading the first of her full length novels, Homecoming.It s an epic tale of space going aliens who may or may not live compatibly with [...]

    6. What if human and alien DNA were mixed long ago, and human alien hybrids spread out to conquer the galaxy What if those aliens had extra sensory perception and super human powers perfectly complementing human ingenuity And what if their symbiotic relationships were thrown into chaos by a virus that almost wiped out the whole of the R il nai This the background to Sue Ann Bowling s Homecoming, a fascinating coming of age sci fi novel where a human slave lives a dream come true and discovers his l [...]

    7. This is a story of a young slave boy, Roi, who might be much than he d been taught in his young life Told sometimes through his eyes, and sometimes through the eyes of of other characters, we slowly begin to understand humanity s struggle in the future, and the struggle of another race of people from beyond Earth and how their challenges are intertwined.I was fascinated by the DNA, the biology, and the genetics in the story The culture a merging of two very different types of people , was symbi [...]

    8. A bit disconnected in spots when there are events or details that don t seem to add to the overall story Character details are well formed and the world is well designed I am still reading it and assuming these threads will come together I have not quite figured out who the central figure is or what it is the three main players are suppose to save But I continue on Unfortunately, it is hard for me to round up time to read.But I did find the time and have finished the book Those threads did indee [...]

    9. The only reason I am not giving this book five stars is because the opening is a bit muddy The MC is dreaming experiencing the torture of a friend by another person whose sadistic glee is clearly visible on his face in the mirror I didn t know whose head I was in, and even on a second, slower read of the book, still found this confusing.Many people would give up at that point and not read on Don t While there are multiple POV s, once past the first chapter, chapter and a half or so, after that t [...]

    10. More information at sueannbowling It s available as a hardcover and an e book, as well To copy an external review This book is an excellent read, from start to finish I did find the first couple of pages a struggle, as characters are introduced rapidfire, but once one has got one s head around them the story is a pleasure Sue Ann has created a very believable civilisation, and characters who are fantastically wrought Any sane person reading this book will land on the side of the main character a [...]
