    Meh I'm disappointed. I thought the first book was innovative and creative. This one just seemed like a techno-soap opera. More drama than a junior high school dance, and about as deep. I was bored by the end. I also was struck by the lack of concern about anything other than humanoid consciousness ... there are a few other species on this planet, ya know. I have no interest whatsoever in reading the third book ... I could barely get through this one. Bleah. Meh I'm disappointed. I thought the first book was innovative and creative.

Humans, as well as alien races, struggle for power and the control of Ambra Dawn, whose powers can make the winner nearly omnipotent. She is the ultimate prize, this girl whose appearance is flawed by a huge brain tumor that gives her incredible god-like abilities to shift through time and space may be the one being who can end the brutal reign of the Dram, hideous and cruel aliens who use humans as pawns with their force and power. Some love Ambra for the hope she brings, some despise her, out of fear or disbelief, but only one man loves her as Ambra, a kind and caring woman whose piercing, yet blind eyes caught his heart many years before. They are lovers who fate has seen fit to bring together, then brutally wrench apart. Nitin is a soldier in a new world, filled with all races and religions, the remnants of the human population who now share the galaxy with aliens far advanced in their evolution. The Xix are allies, eager to assist the humans with their wealth of knowledge and abilities. Nitin is sent on a quest that he and his team may never return from, but for Ambra, he would do anything, including die to protect her. The heinous discovery they all make is unfathomable, warped and deadly, a test of the combined efforts of their knowledge and power, will Ambra have the strength to lead them to victory or has another race been playing puppetmaster behind the scenes with a script whose ending is already written. Erec Stebbins is one of those authors who must mentally work overtime, blending each element of his tale with care and precision in the laboratory that is his mind. Where do his ideas come from, are they some form of mathematical equation he concocts with words? His ability to glue the reader’s eyes to every word is nothing short of phenomenal whether one is a sci-fi/fantasy aficionado or not. Mr. Stebbins has a brilliant sense of tension-building with a cleverly chosen quote for each chapter, that not only sets the stage for the next scene, but slams home the fact that their relevancy truly are timeless and universal. Step out of this world and enter the world Erec Stebbins has created, you’ll be glad you did. I received a copy from Erec Stebbins in exchange for my honest review. Series: Daughter of Time - Book 2 Publication Date: April 25, 2014 Publisher: Twice Pi Press ISBN-13: 9780986057113 Genre: Science Fiction/Time Travel/Romance Print Length: 324 pages Available From: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

    Stebbins has done it again. He has created a wonderful sequel to your marvellous 'Reader'. I suggest reading in order, though that isn't vital. However, doing so will help you understand and empathise with the expanding vision that is the mind of Ambra Dawn. I sure this book stands alone, but there is a definite downsides to the lack of story revision. All authors of book series have the same impossible problem of balancing back-story and progress that can never satisfy all readers. This is a se Stebbins has done it again. He has created a wonderful sequel to your marvellous 'Reader'. I suggest reading in order, though that isn't vital. However, doing so will help you understand and empathise with the expanding vision that is the mind of Ambra Dawn. I sure this book stands alone, but there is a definite downsides to the lack of story revision. All authors of book series have the same impossible problem of balancing back-story and progress that can never satisfy all readers. This is a second visionary, speculative fiction masterpiece; and yes, as is all the best fiction in this category, it is highly philosophical. Stebbins takes us through the lows of his dystopian vision to soar out like the Phoenix into a new and growing existence, a possible Utopia. Well at least the vision can be left to grow unmolested until the inevitable third instalment arrives. What will that be called? My speculation gives me, 'Creator'. I feel sure that we will then come to be told whether the Orb is an essence of God, or is just one of His old lanterns. There is one 'improvement' in this second volume. We have escaped the terrors of mathematical formulae that pitched up at the start of every chapter. These are replaced by very sharply relevant, richly worded, quotations. I was thoroughly absorbed by this book, even though my weak mind faced the occasional threat from drowning in metaphysics. But then I'm sure we were meant to feel submerged, as was the mind of our heroic, tragic narrator, Nitin. We were lead by the thoughts of a 'human' doing his best to explain a story that he couldn't ever really comprehend. I guess Nitin was even more at sea than I would be in explaining mathematics. I sympathised with Nitin to the very end, for ever relieved that at least Ambra Dawn, through Stebbins pen, seemed to understand. What the heck are sentient being doings in the physical cosmos anyway? We understand far more now, don't we Nitin? But do we yet really know anything? We need book three. Stebbins puts together words very well, which is just as well because as we leave the Earth behind, let alone New Earth, the cosmos gets very complicated. In this exciting plotting we are so spellbound that that doesn't actually matter, or even anti-matter.

    I received the book from the author for an honest review. I really loved these books. The author's absolute flair with words as he painted the love between the two main characters, Ambra Dawn, and Captain Nitin Ratava, with so much depth and passion that you feel like a third person most of the time when they met. As if you are invading their privacy. I have never read a science fiction book with this much romance in it that it really grasps your attention all through its pages.

The author's absolute flair with words as he painted the love between the two main characters, Ambra Dawn, and Captain Nitin Ratava, with so much depth and passion that you feel like a third person most of the time when they met. As if you are invading their privacy. I have never read a science fiction book with this much romance in it that it really grasps your attention all through its pages. The turmoil of their choices as they accept this love just to be together, kept you turning the pages. The love that this man had for this deformed young woman was something you don't witness often. When they finally meet and was introduced to her world his devotion became just clearer. But yet he was a strong man with his own unique characteristics that qualifies to be her lover and friend. Adding the plot of the New Earth that is still in danger and had to be rescued from the ever dreadful Dram, you were totally lost in the story itself. As the story unfolds and you become involved with it, you could not help but be fascinated with this Universe he was describing, with so much color and life that you are in awe yourself as they go from new planet to new planet, even the Milky Way, riding the Orbs in the quest: it all becomes so alive right in front of you. I liked the new cast of characters as well, with some of the older ones still there, giving it more substance. But I must say I really liked Moore's character the best. His wit was just something that made the story very realistic. With the eminent threat of Dram, the Anti and Shadows a new threat surfaced as well. One amongst their own that left them with many riddles as calamity follows them wherever they went to investigate. Time was of the essence. A fascinating tale of endurance, and love infused with science fiction at its best. Really a keeper to add to your shelf. Again, the quotes was a wonderful edition to each chapter that keeps you curiosity, wondering what will happen next.

    Extraordinary Literary Descriptions In this second installment of the Daughter of Time series, author Erec Stebbins continues the saga of Ambra Dawn, The Daughter of Time. This is a tale of survival and cooperation between species and races, an account of hatred, vengeance and annihilation. But woven throughout is a remarkable love story.

This is a tale of survival and cooperation between species and races, an account of hatred, vengeance and annihilation. But woven throughout is a remarkable love story. The Dram and their allies, the Anti, created the ultimate weapon to use against the Daughter of Time … one she would never suspect—one that could not fail. Can the connection of the star-crossed lovers save the universe or will nothing prevail? The depth of love between Ambra and MECHcore Lieutenant Nitin Ratava cannot be expressed in a few words in this review; it is something that needs to be experienced by immersing one’s self in their story. Stebbin’s’ extraordinary literary descriptions of time, place, action, emotions and spirituality take us to worlds and experiences heretofore unknown to us. Enthralling to experience. I did find a couple of instances where the narrative seemed to go on longer than necessary, but soon found myself drawn back into the world of the Daughter of Time. In the end I didn’t have the feeling that anything had been left out. I am once again pleased to recommend Erec Stebbins’ work.

    After I read the book, I read the reviews. It was immediately apparent you really liked the book (4or 5 stars) or you hated it (1 star).

It changed focus from the individual into a projected many. It did a good job in the authors dimension and required the reader to stretch his/her mind to understand several of the concepts. I don't personnally buy into the theory that a group mind is what our ultimate goal is, but it is a fairly common concept in science fiction. Maybe it's the premise that with total immersion comes understanding, that with understanding comes love and that love is the greatest strength of all. I can easily accept that love is the greatest strength, but I'm not sure that subsumming myself into a group is the way to go, or that failure of an individual or race to do so dooms them to eternal nothingness and complete desolution of mind, body and soul. Could be I'm wrong and I have misunderstood everything I have been taught throughout my life. I highly recommend this book and believe you must read the first book first to be able to better comprehend this one.

    I really enjoyed Reader and expected Writer to be more of the same. Writer is in a way a continuation of Reader. Yet it is completely different as it is from the perspective of Ambra Dawn's lover, Nitin. As a love story it is okay. As a novel it is not particularly engaging. If I say that I like watercolours and Reader was a watercolour. Then Writer was an overworked oil painting. It was too heavy and intense in the way it was presented and I found myself skipping bits to move the story along. I I really enjoyed Reader and expected Writer to be more of the same.

    I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads. Writer is the second book in the Daughter of Time series. The point of view has changed from Ambra (Book 1) to Nitin Ratava (Book 2), who is Ambra's prophesied love interest. I thought the book was well written, though perhaps with a bit too much foreshadowing. I enjoyed the combat sequences, some of which reminded me of something David Drake would write.

    Book 2 is a bit confusing to start because it goes from book 1, where Ambra Dawn narrated to book 2 narrated by someone else, who you find is writing 200 years after the 1st book... This is a very unusual series. I am not sure how to explain it to say whether you would enjoy it or not. Sort of like how do you explain the Sixth Sense before someone sees it? Some how I find myself thinking in lines of the Matrix movies...

    A series that keeps getting better - can't wait for the third book. Love the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. The book is (like several of the quotes) a cross between Olaf Stapledon and Carl Sagan. "We are the Universe's way of knowing itself"!

    Good story, different from the first book and continued the plot from the first book. Definitely for me, reading the first book helped to enhance the story of Ambra Dawn, and what is needed for her to survive.
