    1 thought on “Dakiti”

    1. Dakiti is a rousing science-fiction action adventure yarn, far better crafted than today's average first novel. (I'm guessing that Transcendence Publishing is a real small press, not simply a printing service for self-publishing authors; but in either case, Fisch has taken her craft seriously and given readers a polished work.) The premise appealed to my liking for action-oriented heroines, so I took the opportunity to try out the series by downloading this novel when it was offered free for a d [...]

    2. Are you in the mood for a para-military sci-fi procedural helmed by a tough-as-concrete anti-hero with PTSD and who looks a bit like Gal Gadot? (At least in my imagination!)Well-paced and detailed, the work of EJ Fisch can trace its ancestry back to the more robust elements of Star Wars' dirty space cities, dubiously far-reaching politics, and white-knuckled action, eschewing the fanciful, elaborate and mystical in favor of the muscular, tight, and intense arc of an elite squad of special agents [...]

    3. I stumbled into this book on referral from a friend, and was pleasantly surprised by what I found. I'm really not all that experienced with science fiction/space exploration genres, but I didn't struggle reading this book at all as an "outsider" to this type of story. The science was sufficient without being overexplained, nor underexplained. What I worried about at the beginning was a "budding romance" story that comes to the MC's out of nowhere, but was really excited that didn't happen, and t [...]

    4. Dakiti is an expansive yet personal sci-fi adventure. It takes place in a vivid setting of multiple species and worlds, feuding factions, diplomatic shenanigans, and the looming threat of renewed war. The fast-paced yet detailed ground and space action scenes send the plot careening forward.Yet Dakiti is at its heart a story about the two main characters. Ziva is a bundle of contradictions sure to provide juicy material for many more books. She's a cold, hardened soldier who is willing to give h [...]

    5. One part Anne McCaffery, one part David Weber, Shake vigorously and get some quality writing! What can I say, I'm very happy I picked this book up on a free promo. Haven't read the 2nd one yet, but I can already tell they're both going in the reread pile. Wonderful stories E.J.!

    6. I came across this book during a random Twitter search and – given my soft spot for action heroines and science fiction – downloaded a sample. That pulled me in and the full book soon followed it to my Kindle.A brief summary of the plot (minor spoilers for the early chapters):Set in faraway star systems in (presumably) the distant future, Dakiti is the first title in a series of novels featuring Ziva Payvan: a cold-blooded, no-nonsense special forces operative. Not the nicest person in the g [...]

    7. On phone so this review will be likely crap.It probably could have been a much better book if one of two things had been the case: (1) Aroska or . whatever his name was didn't exist or, probably better (2) POV stuck with Ziva.The Ziva sections were much better. Maybe around 4 stars. Aroska's sections were around 1 or 1 1/2 stars. I could not stand that moron. He seems to do everything wrong, has a massive chip on his shoulder, leaks secrets like a leaky balloon, and worse yet, just plain rubs me [...]

    8. I loved this story. It was a fast paced ride with believable characters, a fleshed out world and a mystery to be solved. It might be set on an alien world but it felt natural, there was no need to suspend belief or fight to understand something. The two main characters shine and bounce off each other perfectly, dialogue flows nicely and there were moments when I felt like part of a close knit group of people who trust and believe in each other.Am I looking forward to book 2 - most definitely. I [...]

    9. This book has been sitting on my "to read" shelf for a while now and I'm so happy that I finally got to it. I loved the story and the characters! The story was well paced with a nice balance between the plot and the character development. For me, a good story always leaves me wanting more and that is exactly how I ended the book. I can't wait to read the second book and hope there are more after that. A great start to a series and a worthwhile read for space opera/military science fiction fans!! [...]

    10. I read science fiction often as a teenager but fell away from it in recent years only to begin yearning for it again in the past few months after rereading some Anne McCaffrey books. I decided to give Dakiti by EJ Fisch a try, and I'm glad I did. What I found within the pages of this book was an assassin with a secret, some aliens with interesting hair, a creepy medical facility, and unanswered questions that will definitely make me pick up the next book in this series. Four stars!

    11. This is a fantastic first go of it for author Fisch. Worlds were immersive, characters saw the beginnings of true development, and the plot - while a little predictable - was quite good.It's not often I will go out and purchase a hard copy of a book after reading the Kindle version, but this was definitely good enough to do so. I am proud to display it.

    12. From the toughest lady boss I've read in recent memory, to insanely fast action, this is definitely something. Die Hard meets Avatar, butI dunno, that really doesn't do it justice either. My only complaint is that Aroska's growth felt rushed, but hell, the whole book is a rush. Despite the speed, the alien world and premise are still fully drawn.Well worth the read.

    13. Really liked it!The book has some down points regarding the coherence of some characters' actions but the story is so griping and fast pacing that it can be overlooked. The relationship between Ziva and Aroska was very interesting to see develop from the first bad reaction, and Ziva definitely is a bad ass and strong female main character.Deserves to be checked out!

    14. I thought this book was a great science fiction book that had a very distinct spec ops flair to it. Ziva is one of those awesome kick butt heroines that stays true to the end. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes strong female characters and squad based action adventure.

    15. Crisp, concise prose with deep characters weighed down by secrets, emotional issues, and past tragedies that will always linger for some of them? Yes please. An interesting start to a no frills world of betrayal, intrigue, action, and the characters that struggle to survive within it.

    16. This was a fun space opera that threw in just a little too much, and asked me to forgive a few to many faults, but kept the excitement level high enough that I enjoyed it.I will read the next book.

    17. This first novel is a great first attempt by the author. This is a very fun read full of interesting characters. Plot lines are tried and true. I recommend this to anyone that enjoys sci-fi action adventure as it has plenty of both.

    18. **This book was sent to me in exchange for my honest review**RATING: 4.5 STARSE.J you have won me over Such a fantastic story with BELIEVABLE characters. This book was given to me back in December, and I am a bit ashamed that it took me so long to get to it. But I'm SO glad that I finally did.There's a uniqueness to this book. I haven't come across anything like it in a long while, probably not ever, to be honest. The names of characters and locations alone made for a very fun experience. I love [...]

    19. This is the first book I have read by E. J. Fisch and I am impressed. The world building is cleverly folded into the dialogue and on-going events so it doesn't feel so much like "here are the first few chapters of world building before we get to the real story" as some sci-fi books do, especially at the beginning of a series. So it's futuristic, set on unfamiliar planets, with some different people species, and some long standing conflicts of war and commerce and so forth. The main protagonist i [...]

    20. There's a ton to like about this book. It's an impressive first novel and I can't wait to read the second book in the series, Nexus, or the third, Ronan. Dakiti is a space opera in the style of the Mass Effect video games--think Star Wars, but a little less mystical and with more emphasis on special forces and their operations. The story is engaging and straightforward. The pleasure from this book comes not from wondering what the characters will do, but seeing them grow and interact with each o [...]

    21. A great read!I picked this book up after reading the first two books in G. S. Jennen’s Aurora Rising series looking for something similar. Dakiti was similar in how it featured two main characters, a futuristic sci-fi setting and a mystery/suspense element to the plot. It also had an excellent cast of main characters with lots of layers to them. Unfortunately for me I have to say while I enjoyed Dakiti, I like the Aurora Rising series better. There was a lot more detail and world development t [...]

    22. DNF on page 152. By this point, approx 44% through book, I should be feeling some connection to something. The world, one of the characters, the plot, the language used to describe them Something should be hooking me in. But nothing is.It's competently written. I do like how the author has given her different humanoid races different shapes, sizes and colors of hair. We've gotten some background that should make for a tension-filled plot.I dunno. In some cases there's some TSTL going on, for exa [...]

    23. I haven't read science fiction in a while and am now reminded of why I love the genre. Sci fi and fantasy are two genres that allow imagination to burst past limits, create new concepts and build worlds rather than keeping to familiar constructs. EJ Fisch uses that to great advantage in the construction of multiple worlds, cultures and peoples. What a fantastic story! Following Aroska and Ziva along with the elite core group as they uncover multi planetary plots, and struggle to balance duty and [...]

    24. Well the rating should tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was very un-put-down-able and I found myself saying, “I’ll just read another few pages then turn the light out” on more than one occasion.The two main characters, Ziva Payvan and Aroska Tarbic were not just one dimensional, but actually had there own foibles that made them believable and interesting, and the relationship between them is one that keeps you wanting to know more all the way through the book, seeing how it [...]

    25. *I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review*Dakiti is a fantastic science fiction novel.E.J. Fisch’s universe is brilliant and filled with memorable and interesting characters. The two main characters, Ziva Payvan and Aroska Tarbic, are at odds with each other throughout most of the novel and yet must find a way to work through this together for the greater good. Aroska I had a lot of sympathy for and really felt the pain of loss and anger that very much drives him. Ziva is [...]

    26. To start off, this is an entertaining book. It is an action story with hints longer running sub-stories, maybe even a bigger overall story that is more complex. It is a story that has some numbers to the cast but focuses on two people, Ziva Payvan and Aroska Tarbic. We are given some idea of their make up and background but only enough to make want to find out more. Ziva is a strong character, nearly a super agent. She has connections with a mysterious group that is defying her home world, but a [...]

    27. This Book Was Given To Me By The Author In Exchange For An Honest ReviewThis book was awesome! E.J. Fisch is a great author and I really enjoyed the uniqueness of her story. I could not put the book down for a second! E.J. Fisch has a brilliant and creative mind that blossoms and explodes on to the page in a SciFi tale that will set you on the edge of your seat and keep you there for the entire book! I really got into the future way of thinking and way of life these people had and if lived right [...]

    28. The best part of this book came with the realization that I found another author that generates the kind of stories that I really enjoy - a combination of Sci-Fi, action and solid characters whose relationship changes over time with a hint of promise. I found it a little difficult to get into as it took some time grasping the societies and understanding the background to the races, conflicts etc. (I am not sure I really get it now.) The story might have benefited from a prologue. (Hence the four [...]

    29. Set in a vivid world in a distant galaxy, Dakiti's is a suspenseful sci-fi adventure that will keep you at the edge of your seat. The world and the races that inhabit it are intriguing. The story is fast-paced and action-packed, but the thing that makes this book really great are the complex characters and the relationships between them. This is especially true for the two main characters, who are sure to provide us with even more interesting material in books to come. I highly recommend this bo [...]

    30. I really enjoyed this - it’s a sci-fi military story in space with action, mystery, and some rather extreme characters that manage to work very well, individually and with each other.The plot reveal does have a horror element to it, but for some reason it didn’t bother me. (I am the wimpiest person ever.) Some of the plot details get a little lost, but it really doesn’t matter because the story is interesting and fast-paced.I am excited to read the rest of the series.
