Jetta, Jaeia, and Jahx are powerful telepathic triplets living under abusive and poverty-stricken conditions. Even the planet they live on is not very hospitable to humans. But there is more to these three than being able to speak into each other’s minds, or read someone else’s. They have the ability to assimilate information gleaned from another person’s mind, granting them skills, comprehension, and maturity far beyond their years. In fact, I frequently had to remind myself that these three were only five years old at the start of the book. I say that because of how they act so much older.
When their kind uncle sends them to be tested, and eventually recruited into the Eeclian Dominion and their abilities are discovered, they are forced to participate in a military strategy game that is more than it seems.
To say that these three children who are not children experience horrors beyond belief is an understatement. And the mystery of the origin of their telepathic power is a dark silhouette in the background of this story that keeps you ever wary as you turn one page to the next. LJ Hatchmeister has crafted a fantastic science fiction epic that will keep you reading well into the night. Species from many different parts of the universe populate this story in living color, and I found myself jarred when I (hesitantly) put the book down for a meal break and realize I wasn’t in the middle of a group of individuals from different planets. It’s that immersive.
Triorion: Awakening is a fantastic book that I can’t recommend strongly enough. Whether you’re a long time science fiction reader or have yet to try the genre, do yourself a favor and give this book a go. It is fantastic, front to back.
