Martin Martel is an exile in trouble with the gods.
After finding out that he has unusual powers, he is banished from the planet Karnak. Thrust into the tranquil world of Aurore, vacation paradise for the galaxy, Martin finds that the reality of this planet is much different from its serene veneer. The gods are wantonly cruel and indifferent to the chaos they cause: Are they really gods or just men and women with larger-than-life powers? Whatever the answer, Martin Martel must challenge their supremacy to defend his life, love, and the fate of the galaxy.

Not worth the bother
A more concise story that has pace and seams to go somewhere, I have not finished it as I found it irritating and so am sending it back.
No, I like both SF and fantasy.
The narrator drones on and sounds very depressed.
I was disappointed.
I thought it was more of a science fiction, whereas it seams to be more of a fantasy................or something.
