Book Review Earth Cell

Title: Earth Cell: The Ux-Blood Trillogy (Book One)
Author: Charles Brass
Genre: Science Fiction

For centuries, the League of Cells and the Witches Guild have worked together to maintain order and stability across the overweb’s countless worlds.
Walking the pash of a warden for the League of Cells requires dedication, sacrifice, and devotion, as young Maels Raptori, the last of his kind, has learned. But he’s embraced these hardships, for serving as a warden represents the highest honor one might achieve in his lifetime. For six years under the tutelage of his adopted father and the wardens of Earth Cell, he has prepared to fulfill this dream.
When a powerful intruder nearly seizes control of Earth Cell, Maels is tested beyond anything he has experienced. He finds the strength to defeat the invader, but his trials have only begun. Chaos is spreading across the overweb, engulfing all who stand in its way. The conflict soon breaches Earth Cell. Alone on a world of violence, at the mercy of ruthless captors, Maels discovers his years of dedication and devotion may not be enough. To save Earth, he may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice...

Science-fiction with witches? I had to read this one, and I can say, I definitely wasn't disappointed!

For centuries, the League of Cells and the Witches Guild have  worked together to maintain stability in the worlds of the overweb. Maels Raptori is the last of his kind, and he serves as a warden for the League of Cells. The warden training isn't easy, and he's witnessed many hardships in life.

However, when a powerful intruder tries to seize control of Earth Cell, Maels really tests have only just begun. When he's the only one left to save Earth Cell, even all his years of training may not be enough.

Solid writing, an intriguing world system, and an enigmatic main character. Earth Cell is an interesting start to a brand new series. I for one, am looking forward to reading the sequel, and am thoroughly impressed by the world building and character development here.
