Review: A wonderful story of two young men in college who find out that all is not what it seems and that everything they thought they knew is wrong. Thrust into a magical world full of both allies and evil these must try to survive and complete a journey that has been foretold throughout the ages.
Marcus while sexy and athletic seemed arrogant and cruel at first until you find out the reason why. I felt bad for him that he had to hide who he truly was at the beginning. Toby seemed to bear the brunt of Marcus’ cruel comments. Toby is in love with Marcus and can’t figure out why he him the he does. A surprise request will throw these two together for a rather harrowing adventure into another world.
I loved all the details of the past that went into the books that Toby was a fan of. I suspected that maybe just maybe the places actually existed. I never however suspected another world altogether. This world is fraught with serious danger all throughout as people intent on evil deeds are out to destroy these two young men. I loved how the story progressed and Marcus and Toby worked together.
I was pleasantly surprised by who Toby and Marcus might be. Some scenes were hair-raising, intense and nail biting, while others were happy, sweet and joyful. Some of the creatures described in this book are horrifying and downright mean. The only thing I did not like was the way the time period would all of a sudden go back five days or ten days especially after a scene where the reader is left wondering what will happen. But I understand why it was done after completely reading the story.
I am looking forward to reading the next book in this amazing journey to find out what happens next. There is so much that happens and so many different characters introduced that it’s impossible to put them all in a review.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure, action, fantasy and paranormal.
