Excelsior by George H. Sirois

       4.5 STARS

Courtesy Author's Website
Several storylines are creatively juggled in this science fiction adventure tale that centers on the tyrannical excesses of an invading force against a people who refuse subjugation and enslavement.  Pertinent elements of the adventure are shown from different perspectives so that while an action may be only briefly alluded to in one section, in another segment the reader is taken fully into the thick of the engagement. This book is, thus, brilliantly crafted and unique in its rendering.

The story unfolds in a complex and compelling manner that soon had me caught up in the action and wondering what evil adversity would be revealed next. There were many characters, but they were, for the most part, fully-realized and living within the pages of the book. Read the Full Review
