"Will appeal not only to The Wheel of Time readers, but to anybody looking for a coming-of-age fantasy tale with likeable characters and strong worldbuilding." - Fantasy Faction
It has been twenty years since the
god-like Augurs were overthrown and killed. Now, those who once served
them - the Gifted - are spared only because they have accepted the
rebellion's Four Tenets, vastly limiting their own powers.
As a young
Gifted, Davian suffers the consequences of a war lost before he was
even born. He and his friends are despised beyond their school walls for
the magical power they wield: a power that Davian, despite his best
efforts, cannot seem to control. Worse, with his final test approaching
and the consequences of failure severe, time to overcome his struggles
is fast running out.
But when Davian discovers he wields the
forbidden power of the Augurs, he unwittingly sets in motion a chain of
events that will change his life - and shake the entire world. @goodreads
That was pretty awesome!
loved so many characters in this book! I can't even begin! I guess
Davian, Asha and Wirr are at the top of my list but there are several
This is a book about kids coming of age and having to
take a trial to see if their Essence (magic) is good enough. If not then
they turn you into something else.
Dav is worried because he
hasn't found his gift yet and he's afraid. Then all hell breaks loose
and people are killed, tricked, lied to, going on journey's, teaming up
with mass murderers (or where they) creepy things, and all kinds of this
that and the other!
I thought the author did an awesome job building up this world and all of the cray and the characters.
that ending!!!! I'm really liking this one character and they had to
drop that on him! It bettre not continue on into something bad! You know
how that goes though. Good thing I have the next book on pre-order.
is just so much going on in the book but it's not confusing, it's just
too much for me to try to explain because I'm not too good with
reviewing some epic fantasies. But, it's all good. I think people that
love fantasy will enjoy this book and if you think you might not then
pick it up from the library first. I took a chance and bought it awhile
back and it was a good chance =)
until next time . . .
