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.
While Celeste, is a half elf/half angel Herald of Malek is the main character of the book, I think the party that formed around her could be considered to be an ensemble. Being a huge fan of the Elder Scrolls video games, Theri, a kedistam, reminded me a lot of the Khajiit, the cat-like people of that series. Everyone else in her party was great, and I liked them a lot.Tarnelius, who had been in a relationship with her when they were both younger. I also liked Arcus, a human druid along with Siobhan, a paladin. Usually when I think of paladins I think of a goody goody two shoes, but she proved to break that mold. One of the things I loved about all these characters is that they all had moments in the novel where they all displayed a certain level of amazing magical and fighting prowess, not to mention all of them felt like they were very well developed and felt three-dimensional.
My rating is a very highly recommended 5/5 platypires.
