The Silver Sphere by Michael Dadich

The Silver Sphere by Michael Dadich (2012, 274 pages, 1260 KB)

The Silver Sphere by Michael Dadich is the first in a series of science fiction/fantasy novels.    As the novels opens six teenagers are transported to another planet and they soon learn this planet is their real home.  The planet is under assault from very evil forces and it is teens have been brought their in the hope they could save the planet.   Each teen has special skills and powers that are very valuable in the fight.

The planet is full of strange creatures, some friendly some pretty nasty and you have to be fast on your feet to deal with them.  There are some great battle scenes and lots of wonderful descriptions.

Some of the characters are fully developed and some are just outline.  There are a lot of people in the book and the author has provided us with a glossary at the end of the book.  

There are lots of fabulous creatures in this book.  At times it feels as much like a medieval fantasy book as science fiction.

The Silver Sphere by Michael Dadich  is a fast moving escapist book I really enjoyed reading.

You can learn more about the author and the world of The Silver Sphere on his very well done webpage
