Keyla has built a Futuristic world I was able to escape into. At times though I was glad to not actually live there. Her 3 main characters are well developed with individual conflicts in worlds of multiple alien races and augmented humans. The 3 main characters that I could relate to, each soul searching with their individual adventures yet their lives entwined, hence “The Parallels”. It’s fantastic how she’s created conflict for 3 main characters and tied it all together￼. Here you'll enjoy strong female characters, morally challenged with personal and futuristic worldly conflicts, on topics of racism, careerism, elements of science -medical advancement, new discoveries, politics, ambition, love and parenting. I'm looking forward to the prequel and sequel in this "The Sehnsucht Series".
Grimdark Sci-fi Thriller
This sci-fi thriller explores bleak settings in a dark future, with very morally grey protagonists. If your preferred reading is on the darker side of things like mine is, then you’ll enjoy this book. I didn’t have any issues following the multiple POVs and plot lines. Of the three different MCs, I’d have to say my favorite is Halazar. Her hunt for the murderer of her fellow officer gets very visceral at times, and is just a blast to follow.
Overall, I’d definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a rollercoaster of a thriller, full of aliens, mysteries and action.
