Synopsis:  Collision is a well written story from the heart.  His characters you will respect, fall in love with, and laugh with.  Mr. Cash has a way with words to actually put you in the characters shoes, and let you feel what they feel.  What would you do next, and then you’re reading about it.  Collision is such a perfect title for this amazing story!  I cannot wait to read what he has in store for us next.  Mr. Cash has a way with words with his pictorial writing. I felt like I was right there with this young man who is now looking for the killer of his father to bring him to justice.  His Uncle’s overthrow of his kingdom took a very hard blow to the Prince now king, and yet his beloved Hilde was also slain killed by a psychotic brother as she protected him from a death blow of a Fireblade.

And so… The Darracia story continues with all the main characters and searching for answers throughout their solar system.  Our Prince V’sair struggles to hold his small kingdom together without help from any of his family. His stepbrother Zayden is on a vengeful hunt for his greedy low life Uncle Staf Nuen. Tulani navigates her two worlds trying to bring them together.  His nefarious Uncle, Staf Nuen, the orchestrator of the original coup, is making unholy alliances with nefarious new allies. Like the comet zipping across the horizon, all the different factions are heading for a collision course that will test both their faith and power keeping me on the end of my seat to say the least.

MY THOUGHTS and OPINION In this book, we learn more about Zayden and how he faces life after losing so much. He is troubled and meets someone new. It isn’t easy, but he finally lets his guard down and a probable romance my bloom.  Prince V’sair grows up and lets go of people he loves and tries to have hope that they will return. It is a new world, but evil and change are on the horizon. I was amazed in part how this young King handled each, and every situation.

In reading the brief synopsis of this book it was about all the things that I knew would interest me, and keep me awake (reading puts me to sleep normally).   I have been interested in Sci Fi, fairy tales and mythology all my life, but this book was different.  I started to read, and at first battles, and killings was really kind of turning me off, but the surroundings were intriguing such as the magic, and different planets and trying to picture the land/planet of Darracia in my mind was definitely a picturistic view in my mind.   Without revealing too much of the story the new King was on a quest to rule his father’s kingdom, and bring justice to his murderer, but the path the scenario leads too will be quite a readers delight into this storybook voyage of intriguing, magical, mysterious to say the least tale.  You will not be able to put this book down. He did have a teacher who recognized his quality within, and gave him a great education in helping him run his kingdom. The mystical task of bringing peace to his heart and justice to his father’s killer was worth the time in plotting out to his revenge.

As I read this story it became more of a place that I could go to, and forget about reality, and hide within the realm of the author’s fantasy land.  The author had a way to pull you in with emotional thoughts, and heartwarming scenes, but yet keep you on the edge of your chair with the drama.   At times they were a bit complex, but as you read on you were back in a comfort zone smiling with satisfaction at the author’s sometimes whimsical & mystical way of explaining a scene as you walk through the portal of Collision, and into their time. I highly recommend this story to my Sci Fi friends, and yet mythological friends too.  I myself will be giving this book to my granddaughter who is going through some trying times right now, and I believe it’ll pull her out of it as it did me.  She loves to read, and she has also read Mr. Cash’s first book.  Plus I’m entering every Kindle give-away I can find so I can give her one for her birthday or Christmas.  If I can give her a gift of new worlds to conquer would be my wish fulfilled for her. The author definitely has a way with words to hold your interest, and I hated to put the book down when I had to stop for a moment for the real world’s chores.  Many a time I thought oh this might happen next or that was going to happen next, and I was always wrong.  What a vivid imagination of such a planet with four moons to the new king’s universe, and experience of literature.
