Synopsis

Hopeless he’ll never be more than the boy who didn’t save his brother, 17-year-old Avikar accepts his life as the family stable boy, trying to forget the past. But when his sister, Jeslyn, is kidnapped, the thought of losing another sibling catapults him on a desperate quest. With his best friend by his side, and using the tracking skills he learned from his father, he discovers Jeslyn has been taken, kidnapped by one Lucino, the young lord of Daath, a mystical place thought only to exist in fables.

And Lucino has plans for Jeslyn.

His shape-shifting brethren feed off the auras of humans, and Jeslyn’s golden hue is exactly what Lucino needs to increase his power. The longer it takes Avikar to reach her, the more entranced she becomes with Lucino’s world, and the harder it will be for Avikar to set her free.

He failed his family once. He won’t fail again.

***Amanda – #NerdGirlWitch’s Review***
This was an amazing story! I don’t usually read books like this one but The cover and Synapses really captured my interest and I couldn’t help but want to read it. Eliza Tilton is a wonderful writer! I loved the characters and the world that she had created, it was a world that made you feel like you were in the past, with horses and buggy’s but at the same time had these magical elements that gave it a modern and fantasy feel all at the same time.

This book had all the fantasy elements: magic, creatures and battles. The characters were like everyday people though and you could connect to each one no matter the character, even the bad guys, which is unusual for a story. This story was so brilliantly written that no one was seen as a various shades of grey, the bad guys weren’t just bad guys and the good guys were just good guys. I really liked it as it brought a feel of real life to the story.

My favourite character was Avikar he was just a boy starting off on the journey to find his sister and he ends the journey a man, a man who knows what he wants and has the strength of will to fight for it. I loved his character also because he struggles so and overcomes so many personal daemons on his journey. I don’t usually pick one of the main characters as a fav but Avi was such an inspiring character that I couldn’t not pick him. My other fav would have to be Raven, smart, sassy and good at kicking anyones ass!…lol

I really enjoyed this story and I can’t wait to read more as I would love to watch these characters grow and see more to come! if you haven’t read this one your missing out get your copy today! this is a awesome one for all you fantasy readers out there!
