Cataclysm marks the end of Andrew C. Broderick’s 12 part Relissarium Wars Space Opera series. A thrilling story of war and strife between races. The sky above Relisse is besieged by Imperial Forces headed by the emperor Pollus, as both the Carbonari and the Yasta fight together against their common enemy.
While Cherish, Hubard and the rest of the main Carbonari and Yasta forces attack the Imperial Fleet above Relisse, Cierra and Theo escape the arena to hunt down Pollus and free the concubines from their life of slavery. But which side will conquer, and who will remain alive to claim the victory?
The Relissarium Wars is an engaging fast-paced series that has been a joy to read. The characters are well-written and relatable, reminding us that heroes can come from unlikely places. It is the choices we make in life that shape who we are, and our selfless actions towards others that make us heroes.
The only let down in Cataclysm, and indeed the rest of this amazing series, are the countless spelling errors that seem to be part and parcel in most independently published books these days, resulting in a rating of just 4 out of 5 stars for both Cataclysm and the series as a whole. With a little more attention to spelling, the series could actually be improved upon.
I have voluntarily chosen to write this review, and would like to take a moment here to thank Andrew for providing me with ARC copies of all 12 of his Relissarium Wars novellas.
