The author categorized this book as Dark Fantasy/ Steampunk. I was there reading and a moment occurs in the book. I kid you not, I was on the verge of tears. Living eye water near drip from mine eyes. So I was like, WAIT. I’m not supposed to be crying. I’m not supposed to be emotional. After all this is Dark Fantasy.
In all honesty, this was my first read of anything under such a genre. I didn’t know what to expect. My heart was set on getting a good fright, blood and guts. I was served a great heap of them all… I won’t complain. However, I certainly wasn’t expecting to bawl. Which I believe was unfair. I was all in my feelings and then the end came. Geez! My heart couldn’t take it. It was an enjoyable read from start to end.
Let’s get into the fun part, the story itself. We are first introduced to a silver haired, paled skin, beauty. Her name, Lilyth. Who stood as the last Rhai-Angof of her time. She was rescued from near death by a Duwaiu, William. The last of his species. They are supposed lovers. Reunited. It should feel so good after such a long separation. Yet, there wasn’t any kisses in the moonlight or dirty dancing. Lilyth has lost her memory. She doesn’t recognize the face of her ‘saviour’.
The madness that shone within William’s eyes scared her. Let’s not forget his incoherent mumbling episodes. Shall we say, “Freaky!” So she did what any girl would do in the moment he tried to have his way with her. She stabbed that sucker in the leg and ran for it. Believing that he could heal himself she felt no remorse. Until it was later revealed he couldn’t. Darn. That gripped at her conscience. She wanted to stay with him then. He wouldn’t let her. It was too dangerous. There was no way his dark magic could protect her from the evil which were the Vildarii. Who wants to see her dead.
Alone in the forest she soon found help. The blue eyed mister’s name was Sky. They journeyed together and along the way they adopted another, Vergo. A clown looking fellow. Odd team indeed. They were on a mission, to fight all odds. In order to save the world by restoring a balance of power. Their common enemy, the Vildarii.
Bury your nose in this book to experience a world of love, fate, betrayal, magic, revenge and power. It was a darn good ride. Happy reading!
