REVIEW OF OPUSLAND BY S. BEEVER

OpuslandIn the book Opusland, our planet after being abused for thousands of years suffers a cataclysmic event, forever changing the landscape of the entire world. Those who populate the land following this global catastrophe must evolve and adapt to the strange new environment they inhabit. Similar species come together and form clans and lay claim to whatever territory they can.
Not all species, however, seek only food, shelter, and peace. Some want  power and dominance, and it is this compulsion that wreaks havoc on the already fragile world.
In order to defend themselves, their families, and their homes, several clans come together to fight their common enemies. Though very different, they are bound by their mutual desire to survive and later find they may have more in common than they once thought. 

About the author-

Stephen Beever resides in Wigan, England, where he is a principal mechanical engineer. He and his wife, Lisa, have three sons: Jonathan, Michael, and Mark.  In his spare time, he enjoys riding his motorcycle and singing karaoke. 


My Thoughts-

I have always enjoyed science fiction novels but the book was a little hard to follow. There were many different species of creatures introduced, that I had some trouble keeping them all straight. The book was relatively short and the plot was interesting. The description of the scenery was good and I felt that I was right there among the creatures. I wonder if Mr. Beever is planning another book in the future? I hope he does.
