Time’s Tempest (The Chronicles of Xannia, #1)

by M.J. Moores



Embarking as a guide into the death zones that are the Deserts, Taya leads a group of civilians who blindly follow a prophet obsessed with preventing the planet Xannia from environmental self-destruction. Here, Fate and Destiny wage war propelling an epic search for truth amidst 2000 year old lies, in opposition to a government bent on burying ancient secrets and anyone who goes looking for them.

As Taya desperately attempts to keep the prophet and his followers alive, this journey forces her to grapple with the circumstances of her past which have aligned to hurdle her into her darkest memories; making choices she never wanted to consider; learning truths she was never meant to know.


‘Time’s Tempest (The Chronicles of Xannia, #1)’ by M. J. Moores is a well written, action packed science fiction story. The book held me captive from beginning to end. The author writes descriptive action and adventure throughout the story

J. Moores does a great job building and describing the world of Xannia. Moores writes her characters in depth, drawing the reader into each one. Taya, the main character, tells the story from her point of view. The author takes the reader into Taya’s head where the reader hears Taya’s thoughts and feels her doubts, fears, and uncertainties as she faces her obstacles head-on.

I loved this book and highly recommend this book to all fantasy and science fiction readers.

5/5 Stars
