Keyla has built a Futuristic world I was able to escape into. At times though I was glad to not actually live there. Her 3 main characters are well developed with individual conflicts in worlds of multiple alien races and augmented humans. The 3 main characters that I could relate to, each soul searching with their individual adventures yet their lives entwined, hence “The Parallels”. It’s fantastic how she’s created conflict for 3 main characters and tied it all together￼. Here you'll enjoy strong female characters, morally challenged with personal and futuristic worldly conflicts, on topics of racism, careerism, elements of science -medical advancement, new discoveries, politics, ambition, love and parenting. I'm looking forward to the prequel and sequel in this "The Sehnsucht Series".

The Parallels by Keyla Damaer follows intertwining character and story arcs set against a sprawling and incredibly complex sci-fi universe. Aliens, different political and social factions, new and dangerous science, a murder mystery, betrayal, clones – this book has it all.
Normally I would write up a recap of the plot and characters – but so much happens in the first couple of chapters alone, that I don’t think I could do the full book justice in a mere summary. The plot follows three main characters: Halazar, an alien military officer, who is searching for the person who killed a fellow officer; Lanees, a human scientist; and Eleanor, who has woken up with no memories, and only has a voice in her head to trust.
The action starts from the very first page and rarely relents. You’re thrown head-first into the setting, which is sprawling and vast in its worldbuilding. There were times I felt overwhelmed with the sheer amount of information and names and characters being thrown at me, however the detail and depth of the universe is incredible and the setting was vibrant in every page.
The universe is extraordinarily grimdark, but that isn’t a bad thing. This book is perfect for people who like their protagonists morally grey and the universe brutal where bad things happen to semi-decent people, and everyone has their own agenda and motives.
The Parallels is the first in a series, and a lot is set up in the book that is no doubt sure to pay off in the subsequent installments. I recommended this for people looking for sci-fi-flavoured Game Of Thrones-esque books.

Action starts the moment you reach the first page. There is a lot going on. So much so I had to take a minute to catch my breath. A lot went into the making, from names to research. It's thrown right out there, too, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. There is a lot of information at the end for anyone who forgets who is who or what is what.
Aliens, a clone, war... all makes for an interesting Sci-fi read. Looking forward to more from this author.
