    Good start to a new series

    This was a very fast and entertaining read! A story mixing, elves, dwarves, humans, and gunpowder is a mix I haven't read before. I have to say, that other than name I didn't notice a lot of difference between human, elf and dwarf. Though that didn't bother me, but it just felt right in this story. I liked the main characters, though I personally am not the biggest fan of diary style books. But I got used to that pretty quickly and got sucked right into the story. The one missing star is due to it feeling a bit like "Riding there - winning there. Then riding somewhere else and doing so again". It could have been a bit more epic in style and a bit more diverse in action. (And no, I didn't spoil it - there will be important characters dying too... It's not the "nothing bad can happen" kind of book. The two main characters were just a bit too perfect at fighting at times to be fully believable.) Otherwise a really fluent story that kept me well entertained all the way through!

    Mix of GoT and Lord of the Rings

    It's like a remix of Game of Throne and Lord of the Rings and I love every single bit of it ! The story is about Helisah, a young elf girl starting her new school year in the kindgon of Callists like any college students. Until one day, her supposedly boyfriend Khal betrayed the land and helped out Thrakoth A Talurian lord to turn the city upside down and killing everyone. With the help of an assassin troup, Helisah will begin her journey to the road of revenge. I think this is the perfect book for any fantasy fan: it has magic, sword combat, funny lines, and amazing character's development. What I love the most about this book is Helisah and her twin brother relationship ( Aegras). The author succeeded to make us feel close to them. They were always united and no matter what hapened, I knew that they will always have each other's back. The ending didn't disappoint either, a hint that there will be other stories to come and I cant wait for it to come out :)! Thank you to the author himself for sending the ARC of this book.

    Fallinng in love with Helisah...

    So this took longer for me to read through ... not because it was a struggle to read it, but I wanted to keep reading it while fighting my urge to sleep. This book, this story, is just beautiful. The narrative is just freaking beautiful to me--it's written in diary format, yet it painted such a world in what's considered (for me) a short fantasy read. Eric did a superb job with the diary format. Helisah Almari is the voice of this story. Told through her eyes, it never faltered for me. I felt like I was there with her every step of the way. But, honestly, without spoiling it too much, her and her twin brother Aegras are telepathic; they escape the wrath of the first attack and fled with The Raiders--a group of assassins; the evil Telurian Lord Thrakoth is after her family and her friends with benefits (the one that fills her up with so much lust) led the first attack. Along with her brother, The Raiders and a group of citizens they travel through the known lands fighting against the Telurian armies and taking back towns/cities and what belongs to them. Her entire demeanor through the entries was written so I never pitied her and I understood her thinking process throughout the first two years of war. I loved Helisah to death--her eyes through this war isn't pity, depressed or overly pure hatred, but with an attitude to fight back. That's what I enjoyed the most. I wished I saw more of Aegras, but his presence in the book semi met my quota when I reached the end. The characters throughout Helisah's entries that were introduced came with brief introductions and few tidbits of background information, yet, you felt like you knew them. She wrote about them in her entries whenever she encountered them and her sense of telling her day in her entries made me feel like I was there in the present with her or reliving it as she wrote in her diary. The fight is far from over, but where Eric ends the story gives you a since of peace until you pick up the next book. **I received this book in Ebook format from Eric Mrozek, the author, for free in return for an honest review.
