Solaris Seethes by Janet McNulty

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Rynah just watched the man she loved steal her home planet’s stabilizing crystal, destroying it and murdering numerous people, beginning a quest for power few knew was possible. Rynah is driven by rage and vengeance to stop his quest for power at any cost. An ancient myth speaks of four heroes able to help her bring about justice for her planet and people. With help from Solaris, her spaceship, Rynah brings them to her time and together they begin the search for five additional crystals that can form a weapon of unimaginable destruction. Will they be successful or is it too late to stop Klanor from reaching his ultimate goal?

Solaris Seethes is book one in a four-part series by author Janet McNulty. This science-fiction fantasy novel is action-packed with interesting and distinct characters. McNulty’s writing is descriptive and immersive for most of the novel. A plot-driven adventure, it spans both space and time, as multiple characters are from different time periods. The story moves through many settings, including multiple planets, sectors and solar systems.

With characters ranging from angsty teen to inquisitive inventor, and introspective scholar to Viking warrior king, these heroes run the gamut of eccentricities and extremes. One of my favorite characters in this novel is Solaris. Although she is not technically a living being, her personality and tenacity make her a force and an important factor throughout the novel. I particularly enjoyed how she interacts with Rynah, and her petulant attitude.

I recommend Solaris Seethes to friends that enjoy sci-fi fantasy series. Rating it 3 out of 5 stars, I recommend reading the series as this novel is open-ended, and not a stand-alone novel. There is no profanity in this novel; therefore, I can recommend it to sci-fi readers of all ages to enjoy. You can continue this saga with Solaris Strays, Solaris Soars, and Solaris Seeks. If you decide to read this novel, I hope you enjoy it.
