The Golden Queen, Book 1 
When GallenO'Day is hired as a bodyguard to escort a young woman through the woods to the forbidden ruins at Geata Na Chruinn, it seems like an ordinary job-but all too soon, he finds himself fleeing for his life from creatures that seem like escapees from a nightmare-the alien dronon, led by their golden queen. With his best friend, a genetically engineered talking bear named Orick, and his girlfriend Maggie, Gallen soon finds himself tangled in an interstellar war that he never knew existed, racing across a host of worlds, confronted by a future unlike any that he had ever imagined.

This is a fantastic start to this tale.  It gradually picks up the pace with a systematic injection of repeated wonder and creatures.  Love it so far.  Love the way you rifled through the early life of Gallen.  Brilliant!  Absolutely brilliant!

Good beginning! I love the names you chose-  Everynne, Gallen, and Veriasse. They really get you in the mood. :)

The world building caught my interest. Incendiary rifles, horses, vanquishers and an Irish setting. You want to read on to see where this is going.

A fantastic action fantasy novel like J R R Tolkien and Raymond E Feist.
