I am late to the party on this one. A combination of work and life got in the way! Thanks to The Write Reads for organising and letting me take part!
This post is a first chapter review. The first chaoteris always crucial for me. If it doesn’t draw me in from the beginning then I’m likely to put the book down and pick up something else.
An enemy slain is not a conflict won…
After decades of war the demon Te Mirkvahíl is dead. But its progeny endure, spilling from the Heart of Mirkúr, sowing death across the land of Ariath. If the people are to finally know peace, the Heart must be destroyed. Theailys An believes he can do just that with The Keepers’ Wrath, an infamous power focus wrought in Ariath’s yesteryears–but the weapon first must be reforged.
War spares no one…
Serece never intended to get involved in Ariath’s war. But history and demons have a way of pulling strings. When she learns Theailys An, a man whom she abhors, bears striking similarity to the first creator of The Keepers’ Wrath, Serece departs her mountain world for Ariath to ascertain the truth.
From patience, hope…
For millennia Behtréal has walked the world alone. Rewriting history to resurrect his people is easier said than done. But Ariath holds the key–soon The Keepers’ Wrath will be remade.
Truth from madness…
As paths converge and a shadow falls across Ariath, one thing becomes increasingly and horrifyingly clear–these events have played out many times before.
This first chapter was fantastic!! I was thoroughly drawn into the story not only because of the writing but also because as everyone who knows me knows, this is my type of book!
The writing is great, the intial imagery is fantastic and I admit that I read a few more than the first few chapters 😊 I highly suggest that everyone picks this one up and gives it a go!
I cannot wait to finish reading this one and give you a full review!! Apologies again for it being late. I would love to hear your thoughts and don’t forget to check out all the other reviews and posts on the tour!
