Summary

A young dragonfly scribe with wanderlust. A deadly ranger. Thrown together to protect all that they hold dear.

For generations, the Odonata have lived under the ever-present threat of attack from the Hawker Clan. The Hawkers were once a noble race of paladin-protectors, masters of Chama Fogo fire magic, and sworn to defend their Odonata brethren. Then the Day of Corruption came and the Hawkers’ Basilica home was engulfed with Malada, a pollution that twisted and tainted the Hawkers within, turning them into cruel and vicious beings, revelling in torture and cruelty.

When the Hawkers get dangerously close to uncovering what came of their Enchiridion, a powerful spell book seized by the Odonata’s Emerald Rangers long ago, Dax, a young scribe, is sent on a quest with the beautiful and deadly Emerald Ranger Yslana to find Ithios the Viajante, the Jracon devoted to hiding the truth about the Enchiridion at all costs.

Can Dax and Yslana find the Viajante before the tainted Hawkers do, or will Odonata society fall to the cruel and vengeful hand of the Hawkers?

A tense and action-packed fantasy novel set in a vividly-described world that might be right under our noses.

My review

4/5 Stars

Such a dramatic work with plenty of strong visuals and excellent worldbuilding. From the beginning, the reader is pulled into a world of corruption and battle. The idea of a dragonfly society gave it a fresh and unique feeling from other fantasy novels as we follow the main characters on a quest to find themselves in a world designed to destroy them.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
