An enemy slain is not a conflict won…
After decades of war the demon Te Mirkvahíl is dead. But its progeny endure, spilling from the Heart of Mirkúr, sowing death across the land of Ariath. If the people are to finally know peace, the Heart must be destroyed. Theailys An believes he can do just that with The Keepers’ Wrath, an infamous power focus wrought in Ariath’s yesteryears–but the weapon first must be reforged.
War spares no one…
Serece never intended to get involved in Ariath’s war. But history and demons have a way of pulling strings. When she learns Theailys An, a man whom she abhors, bears striking similarity to the first creator of The Keepers’ Wrath, Serece departs her mountain world for Ariath to ascertain the truth.
From patience, hope…
For millennia Behtréal has walked the world alone. Rewriting history to resurrect his people is easier said than done. But Ariath holds the key–soon The Keepers’ Wrath will be remade.
Truth from madness…
As paths converge and a shadow falls across Ariath, one thing becomes increasingly and horrifyingly clear–these events have played out many times before.
CHECK OUT SOME OF THESE REVIEWS
You would never guess this is Luke Tarzian’s debut novel. He has built an incredible fantasy world where good and evil are in a perpetual battle. His words pull you like a stream of smoke from one page to the next until you reach the end.
Sure, this is one of those good vs. evil stories, especially considering the characters, but vultures is far from being cliche. The plot is really complex and layered and there are lots of mysteries. There are mysteries in every mystery and this goes on till the end of the book.
It is a very complicated world that is hard to understand until you finish the story. This is because the details are drawn out slowly throughout the novel. I noticed small bits and chunks at various junctures that often took me by surprise and made me reevaluate what I thought I knew of the story so far. This world is truly unlike any I’ve read before. The characters are darkly complex – each with a set of baggage that no one else wants or needs.
The world itself was incredibly well-developed. There is a ton to this world, and this is a book that very much needs the reader’s full attention. The writing was evocative and made my imagination work overtime. At times, it felt like I was reading someone’s nightmare. It was an uncomfortable but engrossing feeling.
