    1. A refreshing readI have been looking for a good sci fi fantasy novel for a while Something to sink my teeth into and relax with The problem is that they are difficult to find I write mysteries, but I truly enjoy reading sci fi fantasy, and Curnow didn t disappoint me with this one Her writing is beautiful Sparse when it needs to be, and perfectly descriptive when it calls for that I have always enjoyed books where an author combines fantasy with sci fi, and cultures at different stages of develo [...]

    2. This debut novel from author Susan Elizabeth Curnow takes two men from vastly different worlds through shocking twists of loss, betrayal, and torture Reeling from pain and enmity, they must ultimately realize that no one else has the power to save themselves and their worlds.In a way that is deeply sympathetic to prisoners of war and soldiers exposed to terrible hardship everywhere, the author speaks to the heart of the reader with truth as well as compassion.The author s grasp of the human cond [...]

    3. I read some early chapters of this book a few years ago as a beta reader, but never read the finished book until now Those few chapters made a vivid impression and I was happy to see my memory wasn t embellishing the story Games of Adversaries really is a vivid tale of harsh survival and lessons learned the hard way.Both main characters suffer for their arrogance Yiahan truly believes he is evolved than the humans he meets after his spaceship crashes on an isolated, primitive world already reel [...]

    4. I admit, when I first started reading Games of Adversaries, a sci fi fantasy blend, I thought, Uh oh, Aliens vs Cowboys Trust me, that movie has nothing on this book.Curnow does a superb job of storytelling as she explores a culture clash so immense there were times I wondered how she was going to overcome the gaps One culture is advanced enough to move among the stars The other so medieval that food and water are their primary concerns Well, that and dealing with the threat of an unknown enemy [...]

    5. Games of Adversaries was quite a surprise for me In the beginning it seemed to jump from one type of reality to something so completely different that I wondered if I had missed something Not in the least though, as reading on showed me.This story deals with a coming together of cultures so different that it s amazing I don t want to spoil anything for you but that is difficult There are two main characters, one from each world, and they need to work out a mutual problem, but before they are rea [...]

    6. This is a brilliant read Fast paced, with vibrant characters, it is set on another planet The plot twists and turns in a delightful way Highly recommended.Jealousy, hatred covetousness and greed for power inspire a space going race to invade a medieval planet When Yiahan s space craft crashes, the inhabitants have to know if he is one of the guilty Marcus, responsible for the safety of his king, and hurting from the loss of his family to the invaders, must find the truth The world and lives of a [...]

    7. Games of Adversaries is written with an eclecticism that takes the clash of cultures conflict to places it has never known On one hand is a civilization of such technological refinement that it s citizens are virtually immune to the vagaries of nature, controlling their environment as easily as you or I would flip a light switch What could possibly be a threat to the individual, especially a prince of the realm, in such a utopia On the other hand, we have a world in which the people must respect [...]
