An Epic Conclusion
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Book Length (Est.): 487 Pages
Time is a burden that Marsais cannot escape. After sacrificing his bond with Isiilde to keep her safe, he is left adrift. His mind is cracking. As he slips further into madness, a malevolent force is unleashed on the Isle of Wise Ones. Desperate to save the realm from destruction, Marsais and a band of elite warriors sail for Fomorri, a land of death that hides a sliver of hope. But an old enemy appears on the seas and those loyal to Marsais begin to question his judgment. The crew is mutinous, the sea is furious, and all the seer’s careful plotting is torn to shreds when a harbinger of chaos appears on deck.
*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
The journey continues as Marsais, Oenghus, Isiilde, and the band of warriors fight their way back to where it all started. They’ll be hunted, targeted, and tested. They’ll lose people who I’d grown rather fond of and was sad to see go. But they will persevere. Nothing can stop a mad man, a Berserker, and a fire wielding nymph.
As in Sabrina’s previous Legends of Frysta books the detail is almost perfection. There’s just enough to pull you in and hold you hostage within their world. The many characters all retain their individualism and each make the story everything it needed to be.
I’d love to delve into the many things that happen, but I fear anything I say will give away too much. There are many twists and turns and I’d never want to ruin it. It’s best to be discovered. I will, however, say that many things happen that were not expected and just because you know of the enemy doesn’t mean that he’s the only enemy. In a world of magic nothing is off-limits.
My Favorite Moment: Isiilde isn’t the meek little thing she started out as in book one, she’s gown into herself, and I love how she now talks to Marsais and her father. Direct honesty can be very entertaining.
