Thr Last Hour of Gann

The Last Hour of Gann

The Last Hour of Gann 
By R. Lee Smith

Rating 5 Stars

I obtained this book through kindle and the number of pages showed 23,412. I do not know how Kindle came up with 23000 but it did. Did it feel like 23,000 YES! This may be a good thing or bad thing but for me it was very good. First I hate waiting for the next book in a series. Her books pretty much is a five book series in one, which I love! 

It was her last chance:

Amber Bierce had nothing left except her sister and two tickets on Earth’s first colony-ship. She entered her Sleeper with a five-year contract and the promise of a better life, but awakened in wreckage on an unknown world. For the survivors, there is no rescue, no way home and no hope until they are found by Meoraq—a holy warrior more deadly than any hungering beast on this hostile new world…but whose eyes show a different sort of hunger when he looks at her.

It was his last year of freedom:

Uyane Meoraq is a Sword of Sheul, God’s own instrument of judgment, victor of hundreds of trials, with a conqueror’s rights over all men. Or at least he was until his father’s death. Now, without divine intervention, he will be forced to assume stewardship over House Uyane and lose the life he has always known. At the legendary temple of Xi’Matezh, Meoraq hopes to find the deliverance he seeks, but the humans he encounters on his pilgrimage may prove too great a test even for him…especially the one called Amber, behind whose monstrous appearance burns a woman’s heart unlike any he has ever known.

From R. Lee Smith, author of Heat and Cottonwood, comes an epic new story of desire, darkness and the dawn that comes after The Last Hour of Gann.

WARNING: This book contains graphic violence, strong sexual content and explicit language. It is intended for mature readers only.

My Thoughts
I loved this book. Every moment in this book seemed well thought out and very detailed. I am not someone who enjoys a lot of detail but it was very interesting because if really put you in the shoes of the MC. From looking upon an Alien and describing what you see and think to learning to live off the land. I honestly appreciated the detail in this book more then I have any other book. 

I loved Amber. She was sweet, determined, and strong. I really liked her as a MC and enjoyed her fight through survival. I was unsure how I would feel about Meoraq. He is an alien who is the Chosen/Holy/Law/Judge/Can take and Have anything he wants so naturally he is big headed, however he does seek his Law and God above all choices he makes. Its a really interesting duo in a character but Smith is able to really create an Alien that I would want for myself. 

In the book there are events that occur and I just do not understand. The other Humans for instance. I do not understand how in a time of survival that people do not learn and adapt or make amends  It seems the only one growing is Amber. and its her against everyone else. Nikki is a sad excuse for a human being. Skut is beneath shit and all his cult follow. 

In all I loved it. I enjoyed and tried to force myself to stay up till 4am every night. I hated every moment I had to put it down.  Smith has made me a follower
