My Book Review of Sunset Distortion: The Pyramid at the End of the World

Sunset Distortion: The Pyramid at the End of the World by Paul Bahou
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Surprising Read

I’m an avid reader, who doesn’t limit my genre. This book is a perfect example of why – it’s a bit of a gem.

When I first picked it up, I had my doubts. I love aliens, but space opera… hmm. Initially, I felt disconnected from the story, not seeing why, or how, certain pieces were in frame. Then, they snapped together and the action kicked in, makin it was hard to put the book down.

What I liked was the laid back attitude of Lazer. I loved the friendship shared between Lazer, Streek, and Zizi. Gray and Dex intrigued me.

The world building was excellent – the societies generally well thought out and developed. I found myself left with questions about the moss lifeforms on Zizi’s planet, Qiti’s consciousness without an apparent conscience, and why most lifeforms were humanoid. Still, I’d be more concerned if I hadn’t had any questions at all.

There was probably more gore than I needed, but it fit the story. It will be very appealing to many readers, and made the fight scenes and scary aliens more realistic.

Very cool tech. It was an interesting mix of primitive warfare with advanced weaponry. Also, cool how some of the tech was actually lifeforms.

I recommend this book. You’ll need to stick with it the pacing won’t bring things together until you’re just past halfway through, but it is magical when it does. It’s perfect for readers who love action/adventure, aliens, space fantasy, horror, friendship saga, humor, or entertaining sci-fi with subtle commentary on human nature.
