There is only one way to bring back order to the galaxy, and that is finding the legendary planet Sanshli.
Eleven Years ago, my life was ripped away from me. My father, my brother, my humanity. Everything. I was thrown into the Kamps, created to become a mindless machine. But I fought against it, not letting them take away my memories of the past.
And I succeeded.
It has been seven years since I was taken out of the Kamps and made into the Emperor's Shadow. Now I only take orders from him, and him alone, without question. That is, until my brother, whom I thought was dead, shows up and kidnaps me in order to help him find some long lost planet that our father used to tell stories about. According to the legend, any who find the planet Sanshli can rewrite the past, and my brother wants to use it to destroy the Empire. My loyalty will always be to the Emperor, but what if this planet is real? And the longer I stay with my brother, the more I begin to find that the Emperor has been keeping secrets from me. But I can't turn my back on him...
Or can I?
This is the first book in a trilogy. The third book is set to be released on June 16th, 2020. If you are interested in reviewing all three books, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
"I've always been fond of the "syfy family drama" genre. But this one went beyond that. Does that sound gushy? Well, it's true!! 'The Quest' by Dani Hoots is the story of a girl named Arcadia, who is torn between family and loyalty to the Emperor. It was interesting to see how a innocent but brave girl came to be in a strong position. I was rooting for her from the beginning, especially since everyone wanted rid of her. When her brother shows up they both go in search of a lost planet named "Sanshli". There he hopes to destroy the Pandronan Empire and usher in a new age, but will Arcadia help! This book I'd recommend to readers who enjoy female lead characters as well as YA science fiction. It's well conceived with a first book feel and I will read the sequel :D" ~ Amazon 5 star Review
"I am a big fan of Sci-Fi style books (primarily the Star Wars series) and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This is also the first (full) book that I've read electronically. I found it hard to put the book down, as it was a very exciting and good read. I would spend my lunch at work reading, and even clocked in late at times a I didn't want to put the book down!
The story line was well developed, and very believable in a futuristic and intergalactic setting. Characters were well defined, as was the relationships and interactions between them. This book easily stands on it's own, and even leaves the ending open for future installments!
If you enjoy a well developed, action packed read that is hard to put down, then I highly recommend this book!" ~ Amazon 5 star Review
"Holy Hangover!!! I CANNOT wait for the next book in the series. Wow! This book had me riveted to the pages so much I couldn't even set it down at work (don't tell the boss lol). I loved this book and will read it again just to make sure I didn't miss anything. There were hints along the way for some of the twists and turns but not all of them. Dani has to have a lot of talent to go into this much detail and keep the story flowing along with all the unexpected happenings. I would definitely give this book at least 6 stars if I could." ~ Amazon 5 star Review
