Thousands of years ago, the Ancients bestowed the Nine Energies of Magic to certain humans known as Descendants. When Aurora, briefly in possession of all Nine Energies, defeated King Zagan during the Battle of Venom, peace returned to the ravaged queendom of Thurnadan. Eleanor has been placed back in charge of her queendom, and although the war torn country has been ravaged, the strength of the community is bringing things back to normal, piece by piece.
Until a new adversary has emerges: The Jinx. Far more threatening than Zagan and his army, The Jinx is a disease with a one hundred percent mortality rate. The race to find a cure is on; it is only a matter of time before the disease mutates and becomes capable of killing every living thing in its path. Terror spreads. The Jinx seems to be unstoppable, especially when fate rests in the hands of the disheartened. A disturbing Seer’s vision and long-neglected maps are the only guidance the people of Thurnadan have in their frantic search for a cure. Turning to lore of the Ancients for answers, a dark Prophecy threatening the end of mankind’s reign is discovered, but a sliver of hope is also found within its riddle of verses. Do the Ancients still live? Will the disease mutate and grow more powerful? And how much time does the queendom have before all are certain to perish?
|“Stuck in the crossroads of magic, secrets, and time lies the blank banks of a dark and icy river, lined with the shed scales of our departed Ancients…”
First of all, thanks to the author for sending me the e-copy of her book in exchange for an honest review.
My favorite characters: Aurora, Xenos, Ipo, Gwendolyn and King Malcolm. I felt such evilness from queen Eleanor. Now I am excited to know about her character in the next part.
The story becomes a bit boring in between and a bit slow paced too but then suddenly towards the end the events took a drastic turn. I really love that when this happens.
I took too much time reading this book because I procrastinated alot and then this whole month of November was so busy for me. But I am happy to finally complete this book and start the next part.
