Architects of Destiny (Cadicle)

An epic space opera begins… 
Out of sight beyond modern-day Earth, the Taran empire spans the galaxy from its seat of power on Tararia. 

Cris Sietinen was born with rare telekinetic gifts–abilities he refuses to ignore, regardless of the governing Priesthood’s decrees. But, as heir to the most influential Dynasty on Tararia, only a stifled life of business and politics awaits him within the confines of his family’s estate. Determined to be true to himself and explore the potential of his abilities, Cris leaves Tararia to begin a new life touring the stars.

When Cris unexpectedly receives an invitation to join the Tararian Selective Service (TSS), the only organization to offer an official telekinesis training program, a new future awaits. It’s his dream opportunity to be among people like himself, free from the Priesthood and political objectives. Except, Cris’ path was designed, and he’s right where the Priesthood wants him.

Architects of Destiny is the first installment in the Cadicle series, a new space opera epic with elements of “Dune,” “Ender’s Game” and “Star Wars.” A fast-paced space adventure with intrigue, coming-of-age and romance, this short prequel is a prelude to the defining events in Tararia’s history in the ensuing years.

A teen feels unloved, out of place in his home, runs away to see the world and find himself. The setting is science fiction. The world that it takes place in: planets, space stations and supporting characters were all well thought out and described. This is only Part I so the story may develop more in the upcoming series. 

  2. Intriguing concepts and solid introduction I’m excited to see where this series goes. Architects of Destiny is a teaser introduction to the Cadicle universe, and it does that well. It’s a short, quick read that leaves you wanting more.

I’m a big fan of space based sci-fi, so it’s not a leap of faith that I’d like this. That being said, I would have enjoyed this even if it occurred in a different setting and space isn’t the main focus of the story.
