*I won a free copy of this e-book in a LibraryThing Member Giveaway *
is the 3rd book I won and read from J.R. Tomlin, and it amazes me that
she choose to specialize in this genre of books. There are some
typographical errors, though nevertheless, you could still read the
story without further hindrances. the story is well-built to the point
that the readers could finally believe what's going on and the
atmosphere it created.
Although, I agree that this one had
somewhat characters which are not really that remarkable, or in other
words, they just stay who they are, never moving, never improving. And
yeah i notice the bad guys too, their motives had never been clearly
identified, though maybe the author could provide us a sequel or a
prequel. I think what lacks in this story , is the history of it,
because a reader could not fully comprehend the series of events, if he
hadn't known first what this is all about.
Ixich, huge demons
summoned through a savage blood ritual, lead an army through a mountain
pass, slaughtering all who would stand in their way. Tamra, Captain of
the Guard of Wayfare Keep, and an allied army from the city of Madrian
mount a desperate defense against the onrushing enemy. When their army
is defeated and her lover is lost in the battle, Tamra is devastated but
must somehow struggle on.
Even worse lies ahead as the secrets
of her past come to light and her loyalty is tested. Yet, she must
protect all those who trust her against the ixich horde. In her darkest
hour, haunted by loss and with defeat imminent, can Tamra fulfill that
trust and do her blood duty?
