The Saga of Davi Rhii. Book 1, The Worker Prince received Honorable Mention on Paul Goat Allen’s Year’s Best Science Fiction Releases of 2011 at BarnesandNoble.com, alongside books by Ben Bova, Robert J. Sawyer, Jack Campbell, Ernest Cline and more. The Saga is presented here with all three novels and two short stories collected in one beautifully designed omnibus.
Davi Rhii discovers that while he may have been raised a prince, heir to an empire, he was born a slave, a worker, and sets out to find the truth. What he discovers leads him on a quest of discovery that pits him against his evil uncle, Lord Xalivar, ruler of the Borali Alliance, and old rivals as Davi leads a rebellion to set the workers free.
New York Times bestselling author Robin Wayne Bailey described it as “full of rich characters and settings, it embodies ‘sense of wonder’ in the best traditions of classic science fiction.” While Brenda Cooper says, “(It) will appeal to readers of all ages.” A roaring epic filled with classic tropes and homages to space operas of old, The Saga of Davi Rhii is a thrill ride a minute.
