Magic was seeping out of me, black and agonizing. I could see it drifting away. The magic that would let me pass the Road to reach home again.
When sixteen-year-old Anya learns that her aunt, Queen of the Faerie Kingdom of Chrior, will soon die, her grief is equaled only by her despair for the future of the kingdom. Her young cousin, Illumina, is unfit to rule, and Anya is determined not to take up the queen's mantle herself.
Convinced that the only solution is to find Prince Zabriel, who long ago disappeared into the human realm of Warckum, and persuade him to take up his rightful crown, Anya journeys into the Warckum Territory to bring him home. But her journey is doomed to be more harrowing than she ever could have imagined…
Sadly this story wasn’t really for me. I had a hard time getting into it, a lot of it I found to be so so , at times a little dragged out and very long winded.
I couldnt connect with the characters, but will say that the storyline was none the less well detailed and certainly well written from this author.
I found the book just long and would have loved more romance. But that is a personal choice of mine. For some they may find this refreshing, but for myself I like to see some connection with the characters. It just didn't do it for me...
Overall, the storyline certainly had a great concept, but I just found it wasn’t a book I wanted to rush back to – to finish. I did finish it though.
The cover is certainly eye catching.
Thank you to the publisher for the review copy for my honest opinion.
