Readers embraced the first two books in acclaimed author David Macinnis Gill's trilogy about Durango, Mimi (his nano-implant with a biting wit), and Vienne (his second-in-command), calling the books non-put-downable, thrilling, funny, and totally satisfying. A surefire bet for fans of dystopian sci-fi, from The Hunger Games to Battlestar Galactica.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Science Fiction! "Shadow on the Sun" is a fast-paced, heart-stopping science fiction novel that opens in Fisher 4 where Sturmnacht troops have been deployed to overrun the mines. Fuse, a former Regulator is forced to hide his pregnant wife and her mother while he goes for help. The story then shifts to Christchurch where Vienne a disgraced Regulator recuperating from life threatening wounds is seeking penance in service to a monastery while she waits for her partner Durango to return. She doesn't know that he's been captured and tortured by his tyrannical father General Lyme. Experimenting on his son the General has duplicated the AI (artificial intelligence) flash-cloned to Durango's brain and has called it Dolly. With this latest weapon he will stop at nothing to gain dominance in the war, even to sacrificing the son who despises him. Can Durango deter this maniac from his plans which could mean the destruction of the planet? The action in this well-written plot never stops, its energy only lightened by the wit and humour of Durango's interaction with Mimi, the sarcastic AI who has begun to show signs of self-sufficiency. Into this creative and riveting story the writer has infused imaginative weaponry like the armalite, the Crucible and symbiarmour (indestructible body armour). The core characters are well-developed, and realistic with their multi-dimensional personalities; like Durango, the former Regulator Chief who's tough, brave and sometimes cocky as well as Vienne, a woman haunted by the past who's pragmatic and blunt-spoken, masking a tender heart. Mimi, the AI is amusing with her droll and clever wisecracks. The brothers Khoumanov with their good-natured insensitivity, determination and loyalty are as entertaining as Mimi. But, it's the villains in the story with their brutal selfishness, hunger for power, viciousness and cruelty that make the reader shudder. All the characters add intensity and strength to a captivating plot. I have read all the books in this science fiction series and have enjoyed everyone, especially "Shadow on the Sun."
