{Synopsis} –Darkness is covering the land. As the city of Mezrah grows with power and greed, the rest of the world can only stand by and wait for their inevitable destruction. The only hope against this growing power is an ancient prophecy that people have stopped believing in.

Then a star begins to fall.

Princess Kyla of Taramon stopped believing in the power of light the day her father died. Trapped in a city she does not care for, under the watchful glare of her mother, the queen, she struggles to accept her fate.

Then a star begins to fall.

Jethro has loved Kyla for as long as he can remember. Learning that she was to marry his cousin drove a wedge between him and the feisty princess. Watching her from a distance is a torture he is unable to free himself from.

Then a star begins to fall, sparking an ember of hope and sending two seekers on a treacherous journey into the unknown.

{My Thoughts} – This book is fantastic. Every princess dreams to go on an adventure of their own. They want to explore, they want to wander the lands, and take in everything around them and all it’s beauty. This book is based on a princess named Kyla and her best-friend named Jethro. They are two very special individuals because they have been chosen to go on a very special journey for their god {Oron}. This journey is based off a prophecy that has long since been banned from being spoken about. However, a Seer of a nearby village comes to the Queen baring the news of the prophecy being set into motion. This book is full of emotions such as: self doubt, lust, love, regret, betrayal, forgiveness and more. The author leaves us with a cliff hanger, which leaves you wanting to read the next book in the series almost as soon as you complete this one.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
