A strange darkness is growing in the Ward. Even Corayne an-Amarat can feel it, tucked away in her small town at the edge of the sea.
Fate knocks on her door, in the form of a mythical immortal and a lethal assassin, who tell Corayne that she is the last of an ancient lineage - with the power to save the world from destruction.
Because a man who would burn kingdoms to the ground is raising an army unlike any seen before, bent on uprooting the foundations of the world. With poison in his heart and a stolen sword in his hand, he'll break the realm itself to claim it. And only Corayne can stop him.
Alongside an unlikely group of reluctant allies, Corayne finds herself on a desperate journey to complete an impossible task, with untold magic singing in her blood and the fate of the world on her shoulders.
This was a fantastic epic fantasy. .The characters were multi-dimensional and felt real. You will love and hate them.
This was a loooong book. I feel like this book is more character driven. I was rooting for everyone, minus one. There are 6 POVs which seems like a lot, but actually worked in this book. My favorite is Sorasa. She’s so feisty and blood thirsty. Her dynamic with Dom kept me reading. Im hoping something happens between the two because I’m here for it. He’s a cinnamon roll as is Andry. Andry is too sweet and reminds me of Ansel from Serpent and Dove. I also liked Corayne. I liked the portrayal of a heroine who doesn’t really know much when it comes to fighting. The romance.. there really wasn’t any. There is a possible ship as we’ve only had a small glance.
this book pretty much includes everything I love! dirty pirates! disappointed mothers! mysterious lineages! extremely tired immortals! destinies being thrust upon the unwilling! a rag tag group of the least likely heroes! a very large and scary world! Victoria takes some tried and true fantasy tropes and once again smashes through them with her sword. it's the most fun I've had in a while.
This is a lengthy book but this is a very interesting new series by the author.
Medieval vibes but with pirates, really interesting!
The magic system in this book ahH OMG so good!! The concept of spindles, spindle blood etc...was something.. I just cannot explain it, I really enjoyed.
Sure, I was confused as well but it was a good kind of confused...ohmaiii!!! hahaha
I LOVED IT
