    I received Kidnap:- Volume 1 as part of ireadbook tours. I normally tend to watch films in this genre, but was tempted to begin reading books on this occasion, as I have enjoyed many other books on the book tour. So, as a novice in this genre, I did not know what to expect, so hope I can offer some fresh comments. The book immediately delved directly into the story, which was a new start to a book, in my experience. Once I put aside this deviation from my prior experience, I found myself swept into the story rather quickly. My neural network needs some expanding to encompass the many details that are found in this genre, but I lapped up and absorbed the beautiful descriptions of inter-galatic life. This is certainly different to the films that I have watched in this genre, and less predictable. Of course, every story has it's own beauty and energy. Perhaps it was the telepathic skills that I enjoyed reading about. I loved watching movies about super human skills. I noticed from a young age that I do have some telepathic skills, and spent some years learning how to use that sensitivity. The cleverness of the shape shifters was mesmerising. The awe that each race have of the other, even when enemies is interesting to read about and follow. Melia wastes no time in allowing you to enter the heart of the story immediately, and once entered, you follow a fast pace, like it or not! The authors imagination is vivid and lucid, and it is great that she has shared with us her dreams and visions of other worlds.

    Teodor is a thirteen year old prince with enviable skills, who will some day become king. His energy tangibly ripples through the book, as you join him on his life adventures. Guy is from a less privileged background, and possesses extraordinary skills.

    http://bookandink.weebly.com/the-book/kidnap-guy-erma-and-the-son-of-empire-1-by-sally-ann-melia-review

    My taste for scientific fiction declined thanks a lot of writers who went on a stereotyping spree there by producing a lot of similar books with more or less the same elements. After all fiction is a product of a man's imagination but stereotyping that is akin to obstructing creativity. This writer, Sally Ann Melia thankfully broke all stereotypes by narrating a tale which is set in an advanced generation long ago but with the same human characteristics as the present world. Never did I regret picking up this book.

    In this installment of the series, Sally narrates tales of two boys, one, a prince of the empire, Theodor and other, a reluctant model-aspiring fighter-bastard child, Guy Erma. Both the characters are similar yet have a paramount of difference between them. The narration is set in a faraway planet with astounding technological improvements like flying droids that act as cameras and flying disc which act as transport medium. Theodor ends up being kidnapped by people who don't believe that the Dome (a part of the planet in which the narration is set) should be closed. His mother,Sayginn, embarks on a mission to find missing Theodor. The elaborate description of the Dome is a treat to read. The description was accompanied by beautiful sketches that re-affirmed by visual image from the description.

    The story line as such doesn't have any logical loopholes but sort of lacks explanation in certain parts. After all, this is the first book in the series and may be the writer has more to explain about in the other books. I found the starting of the book a bit uncomfortable and hazy to read for the story sort of began with a bang and a lot of technical terms.

    Premise - It was not the most unique plot but this one's pretty different.

    Characters - I like most of the characters. The problem here is, I'm not sure I like Guy Erma and Teodor, a.k.a. the son of empire. Guy was a bit conceited for my liking. Yes, he's pretty great at the stuff he does but that does not justify being egoistic. Teodor, on the other hand, was not really sure of himself, he's still finding himself, I guess. But, and that's a big but, he's unreasonably whiny.

    I like, however, other people's pov, especially Teodor's mother; I could feel the emotion of a mother when I read her pov. The same applies to other povs that's not Guy's & Teodor's.

    Also, I need to point out that I laughed way too much about the names of the cubs. It's so funny.

    Writing style/technique - I like how it has multiple point of views. It made it easier for me to understand what was happening, it certainly weren't biased to any character. It was, however, tedious considering this is only a part of a book (or was this compiled into a volume?).

    I like reading conversations of the characters and this book gave me a fill of that. The flashbacks and stuff was a bit messy though.

    World building - This is done almost impeccably. The problem was me. I can't imagine the world being described here. I've read some part of the book to my niece and she understood it really well. I can't seem to conceptualize the world with domes set in the future. What I was visualizing was sci-fi set in ancient era. I kept being surprised while reading this and then I remembered, this was a futuristic (?) sci-fi.

    Good thing there was illustrations! It made it, a bit, easier for me to understand the world being built and the characters being described.
