Dessa: Spirit of Vengeance, Book1


Rise above the Decay, in this Land of Blood and Bones

“When you’ve lived so long in the darkness, you forget what it’s like to stand in the light.”
A series built with some solid fives, “Sacrifice, Seduction, Sin, Survival, and Self-discovery”

Fight for the militia? Or for a hidden agenda? Cabil knows Syreene all too well—her motives marked with the stain of vengeance of her murdered parents. But Syreene is bent on learning the craft of elemental-wielding for better or for worse, even though her pyro-dancing human foster brother keeps her under lock and key. How embarrassing, for an elf like herself to bare no earthly arms. It’s bad enough her kind is ridiculed already.

The life of a schoolgirl carries little excitement to spark her itch of finding the demon who slayed her biological parents. Cabil insists on letting go of the past, but the fire under the redhead’s furnace burns hot. Even hotter when her older brother comes home one night, unconscious, past town curfew, slung over a mysterious man’s shoulder and plastered with blood. It’s a lot to take in—having to see her high-ranked, on guard brother wounded for the first time, possibly hanging on the brink of death, and the sight of a man that left her stomach sashaying with fluttering butterflies. Déjà vu—the complexity of the moment follows the adolescent to a reckless encounter where she later finds herself kidnapped—a terrible consequence for trying to seek out her brother’s assassin, someone working from the King’s High Council. Her high-end impulsive trait falling in the hands of Cabil’s sworn enemy—smells like a perfect formula for chaos.

Not to worry, as long as she doesn’t tell anyone what happened in the dungeon that night, all will be well. Wishful thinking!

The story unravels, following the trio through battle, sorcery, adventure, and discovering of family secrets. How will Syreene handle her new persona, and face the man who haunts her dreams?

If you enjoy Mark Henwick, McKenzie Hunter, Steve McHugh, Jim Butcher, Kevin Hearne, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, K.F. Breene, or Shannon Mayer, then the Shadowland Saga is the right touch of darkness in the pot of fantasy gold!

"From the moment that I started reading the first chapter I got excited and intrigued. This genre is one of my favorites, discovering new worlds always makes me anxious to read. The way the author narrates the book is smooth and graceful. I must also add that Cabil is one mesmerizing character, his way of seeing his surroundings, thinking and his actions makes the reader want to stay and get to know the character even more; I totally see him as a character that will make readers just fall on their knees. His sister, Syreene, does not only have a beautiful name; but complements her brother a lot; I got a good view of their relationship, I immediately thought of their bond and totally felt it. It is hard sometimes for a reader to feel something while reading and the author achieved it. I loved her temper and how different she seems from character of other books. Finally, even if I did not get to know Mya much, I already feel that she might be my favorite character. It was easy to get trapped inside the pages of the book; it has a captivating essence to it. You get to feel and really believe everything that is going on, so much that you cannot stop reading. The author made an incredible job while describing scenarios, I got to imagine every scene and it was not hard or tedious to understand. There were moments that I thought everything was moving too fast, but besides that I was fascinated by the book. The cover was also attractive and makes sense with the plot of the book. I personally enjoyed reading this book, a lot. I recommend it for those who are fanatics of fantasy stories just like me, the author is honestly gifted and now I have become a faithful reader. "
