Collision: The Battle For Darracia by Michael Phillip Cash is the second installment in a sci-fi series. Prince V’sair is trying to not only keep his family together but the kingdom as well. Zayden, prince V’sair’s stepbrother is on a quest to find his evil uncle Staf Nuen. When he finds him he plans to let his wrath unleash. Staf Nuen is up to his evil ways by forming alliances with those that are just as evil if not worse than himself. All this is just building for a huge disaster. The question is will a Prince V’sair be able to run everything without any help?
Although I have not read the first book in this series, Schism, this book was fairly easy to follow along and understand what was happening and why they were happening. Mr. Cash does a great job in describing the characters and provides a little back story on each, which really helped bring me up to date with the story. The overall plot I understood, the rest just got lost in the shuffle for me. There was too much going on and way too many strange unpronounceable names, planets and things in general to keep track of.
Which I know is typical of a sci-fi novel but I reiterate it made it difficult to keep track of things. The story was too detailed and far-fetched. Perhaps if I was a hardcore sci-fi reader I may have enjoyed this more, but unfortunately I’m not. I went into reading this with an open mind to try something out of my normal genres and unfortunately it just was not to my liking.
