For five hundred years the Gods have united the Three Lands in harmony.
Now that balance has been shattered, and chaos threatens.
A town burns and flames light the night sky. Hunted and alone, seventeen year old Eric flees through the wreckage. The mob grows closer, baying for the blood of their tormentor. Guilt weighs on his soul, but he cannot stop, cannot turn back.
If he stops, they die.
For two years he has carried this curse, bringing death and destruction wherever he goes. But now there is another searching for him – one who offers salvation. His name is Alastair and he knows the true nature of the curse. Magic.
My Review: This was a fantastic fantasy book, once I started reading this book I simply could not and would not put it down. The plot was nonstop and exactly what you would expect when you read a fantasy novel that involves magic.
This book has everything now that I think about it, magic, gods, demons, action packed scenes. This is a first book in a series and I will continue to read this series because it is that good. I can’t say enough about the plot without giving too much away but if you like fantasy novels then I can assure you, you will like this one.
The main character has caused a lot of trouble, a lot, but you will not stop pulling for him because who hasn’t caused some issues in their life? Eric is well developed and you immediately pull and love him because he is that awesome.
This is a fantastic book from a new author (for me) I will continue to watch and read this author in my future, I am so glad he decided to write this book!
