Architects of Destiny
Cadicle, Volume 1
Copyright 2015 by Amy DuBoff
Cristoph (Cris) Sietinen is heir to the SiNavTech dynasty, one of the six leading dynasties onTararia who are the joint rulers of commerce and economics throughout Tararian space. Cris,
unhappy with his role as heir, seeks to learn what it feels like to make his own decisions and experience the world on his own terms. It doesn’t help that he has powers that he does not
understand but that are condemned by the “Priesthood” who are the political rulers of Tararian
space and dismissed by his parents as unimportant.
But Cris is in for some serious lessons in war and politics as he seeks ways to understand and control his powers and begins to understand that politics stretch far beyond the realm of the dynasties, and even beyond their conflict with the Priesthood. He also learns that destiny is not controlled by the hand of those destined and stretches across the breadth time, space and wars.
Amy DuBoff has written a space opera with likeable, believable and truly confused and conflicted characters. Cris is a rebellious teenager in the midst of people who know more about him, his abilities and his destiny than he does and who are determined to manipulate him for their own purposes. However, in rebelling, he is facilitating his own destiny and fulfilling the goals of those who are manipulating him. He does eventually find supportive friends in Thom and Scott, and eventually in Kate whose fate is tied to his.
Architect of Destiny is well written and despite a relatively slow start, picks up quickly and is intriguing and entertaining. Fans of classic science fiction and fantasy, as well as those just interested in a good read involving political intrigue and action should like it. I plan to read the rest of the series, Veil of Reality and Bonds of Resolve soon.

Authors need reviews!
Need reviews? I will provide a FREE honest review for 4-6 fiction books each month from specified genre. Reviews are always FREE, I read the following genre: mystery, crime, and science fiction/fantasy only. No romance, young adult, religious or erotica. As a lifelong reader I do not care for serial series books; I will accept them, but I will review them based on my satisfaction with only the story contained in the volume I reviewed.
Reviews will be posted on your choice of Amazon or Smashwords, Goodreads and Library Thing, Barnes & Noble and/or Kobo. In addition, I will post the reviews on this site, on my Tumblr site and my Pinterest Blog Review Board. My reviews also appear in the Midwest Book Review, Polk's Bookshelf, during the following month.
