excerpt 2

She flushed with fear as she tried to stay calm and still. There was a splash behind her and her heart did a double jump. She clenched her fists together and gritted her teeth. She trembled to the bone and her mouth threatened to erupt in a succession of screams. She held her lips together and stifled the faint whines in the back of her throat. A sharp strike of flint sounded against the stone, and she cringed as she turned to witness the foe.
En guyen naha lin sanse.
Kaliel understood it this time. The Flame inside of her struggled with all of its might to emerge. As she closed her eyes, it rushed out of her. She took a sharp breath as she looked at the people in the cell. There was a body on fire next to the girl now, flames smoking out of his form as the foul smell grew thicker.
The one with rosy pink eyes stared at her and the meaning of the words flooded her mind. Run. Hide. He will take your soul.
The foe didn’t seek to kill the Flames, he sought to possess them. Kaliel felt sick to her stomach as she fought to bring herself out of the dream, back to reality, back to the place where she could find Krishani, warn Mallorn, tell the elders everything she had seen. She tried to close her eyes, but she felt like they were fused open as the foe crouched beside the girl and presented a tiny crystal clear orb. She watched as the pink essence from the girl’s eyes flowed into the orb, turning it into milky pink vapors. The foe stood as the girl slumped to the side, dead.
Desperate, Kaliel tried to back away, but the foe turned his gaze towards the darkened tunnel. His white-lightning eyes sparked, making contact with her amethyst enflamed ones until everything fell away into awful blackness.


review by sue 2

I have not found a book by this author that does not have a gorgeous cover.  The details to this book will keep the reader well in knowledge of what is going on and the surroundings of the characters. I enjoyed this the most because there were no stones left unturned for your mind to wonder if a portion of the story was missing, this tends to happen in fantasy books. The author truly wanted you to picture what you were going to be reading about, and I loved the visualizations that they brought me.

This book has all the perks of a great fantasy book adventures, magic, fighting, and love that should not be. The story is about two Elvins who consistently causing more problems and disappointing the elders. The author also helped out by giving us a little guide incase we needed some information on who was who.   As you read you are able to see from both point of views from the main characters of Krishani and Kaliel.  The flow of the story even with the point of view changes were still continuously without a flaw. Everyone has destinies to fill and these two may end up needing to find different paths, are they meant to be? And if so what will they do to overcome their true destiny.

The author has left the ending of the story for another but your wait was not long. I would definitely recommend this to all Fantasy lovers!!! I have truly enjoyed this book and will admit that the author has her own unique writing style. It is amazing!
