The Journey of the Marked (The Miyran Heir Book 1) by Rebecca P. McCray


Rebecca P. McCray has a fantastic imagination and her vividly detailed writing brings to life the complex world of Zolei.
The many different species living on the planet are wonderfully described and I have a clear picture of most of them, although keeping them straight was hard at first, I soon figured out who was who.

In some chapters we join the five marked teens; Eros, Tip, Kenrya, Prizene, and Azetan, as they make the dangerous journey to the Miyran training camp. Other chapters follow the family members and friends who were left behind, as they meet up while searching for news of the five. There are also chapters that show the story from the Tyrnotts and Graeliths (the bad guys) point of view. These different perspectives give the story and the characters a great deal of depth.

It's an amazing book that I did not want to reach the end of, but I have, and now I'm desperate to read the next one!





Synopsis:

On a distant planet, Eros thrives in the Human settlement he calls home. Raised to follow his grandfather's noble footsteps, he studies the details of each species that co-exist here. But when his sixteenth birthday arrives and the mark appears, he's called to fight, which changes his life forever.

Forced to abandon his home, the mark makes him the hunted. He's attacked the night he arrives in the city. A tough, street fighter named Kenrya saves his life. When they join others on the same journey, her cynical attitude drives a wedge between the group.

Given the perils facing them, can they put aside their differences and trust each other long enough to survive?

Discover this epic adventure where an individual's unique abilities can change the course of the future.



The Author:

Rebecca always has a story "playing" in her thoughts. If she puts a book down, her imagination grabs the story and starts creating alternate storylines, expanding on the world to which she's already been introduced by the author. Over time, she began developing the concept of an advanced species that is the imminent example of the "survival of the fittest" evolution theory. That species was the beginning of her series, The Miyran Heir. The first book in the series, The Journey of the Marked, is now available on Amazon.

An avid reader, she enjoys fantasy, sci-fi, mysteries, and culturally-based biographies/travel stories. She is intrigued by cultural differences and this appreciation for variations throughout the world can be seen in her writing.

Rebecca grew up in Lexington, Kentucky and attended the University of Kentucky. She has also lived in Oregon, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England. She currently lives in the western part of the US.
