For centuries, the half-blooded elf has hidden herself away from the world and lived in isolation. Things have been peaceful, quiet. But some have a greater calling, a destiny. When the humans unwittingly set about a plan to release the source of all evil back into the world, Celeste is called upon by an old ally to stop them, and to keep all of Altierra safe.
Now she must face her past as she and her allies travel across the continent to save a world she has been apart from for eons. Will even her angelic birthright and druidic powers be enough to stop the rise of the last god?
She never asked to be a hero.
Destiny can be funny that way.
Yes, I just sighed.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
Had I known that I would have had my heart torn out of my chest and stomped on, I'd have taken more precaution while reading this. Alas, it has already been done and the tears have been shed. I suppose I could, in time, come to forgive the pain I have gone through if one was to say... Give me the second book immediately.
Anyway, I really did enjoy this book. I am a lover of fantasy, and frequently partake in the tabletop variety of shenanigans. This book was true to much that I love about the genre, and for that I would have to highly recommend it to others of good taste.
There were some parts that I felt could have used more explanation for me to fully connect with the characters. More so at the beginning.
I absolutely loved the world I was brought into and cannot wait for the second book. Literally. I need it immediately. I am not one to read teasers for the next book in a series, especially when they're included at the back of a book. Because I hate being teased, and I'm horribly impatient. But I couldn't help myself this time. I read it... And things happen... And I need the next part now.
