Wraeththu by Storm Constantine
Wraeththu by Storm Constantine
I highly recommend this book! Storm Constantine creates a fully believable world, filled with exotic cultures and even more exotic characters that you will come to love.
Wraeththu is told from first person perspective, which I enjoy, and is broken into three books. Each is told from the perspective of a very different character.

I loved this book! There is something in it to appeal to every reader. A little horror, a little SF, a little mysticism, even a touch of romance.
The main character, David Valentine, is an elite soldier on a near future earth that has been turned on its ear. Man is no longer at the top of the food chain--he has become prey to turncoat humans, genetically created monsters called grogs, the menacing, vampiric Reapers and the alien Kurian masters. He is of the first generation never to have known life without the fear of the Reapers.
The book shows his development from childhood, through his training, and into young adulthood. He is chosen by a good Kurian, a Lifeweaver, to… Read more
