The Hannaria Series ~ Out of the Gray ~ Patricia Gilliam – Book Review

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on February 20, 2012 0 Comments

Author Patricia Gilliam has certainly hit the Sci-Fi writing scene with a bang with this first book in the Hanneria series. Out of the Gray is an exciting read for young adults (YA) or older adults who enjoy an exciting trip to another era in the future. The main characters in this book find themselves thrown in the midst of a political war while they are teens and still finding themselves. These characters are great role models for teens in today’s society. This story not only has a great story-line but has characters who, even though are on opposite sides of the struggle, stand up for their integrity.


I give this book a 5 star and suggest the reader get all four books that are currently available in this series at one time.  The reader will want to finish up one book and start into the next immediately.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good sci-fi story. It is action packed and draws the reader into the story from the first chapter till the last. It leaves the reader hungering for more. This author has four books in this series already published.

 The author has a talent for using words that show such great description that the reader feels like they are in the midst of the struggle themselves. I just loved this author’s style of writing.

Editorial Reviews

By Michael Anderson With Out of the Gray, Patricia Gilliam wastes no time getting into the thick of conflict. The novel sets the premise quickly, and the complications arise naturally. When the twists and turns rear their heads, they aren’t contrived, as in many tales. Once the chain of events begin, the momentum builds until the conclusion, which of course sets up the second book. The story itself is great, and the point of view switches between two characters, with both of them taking turns in telling their persp
