Synopsis:
Before…
Aelwyd has worked hard to become strong. As the Fairest One of Vallenthar, her power is formidable. Years of battle honed her into a fearsome warrior who never falters in front of an enemy.
However, there are shadows that when they come, they can swallow you whole.

After a hundred years of praying against it, the minute she walks into the chilling scene of death in front of her, she knows her personal nightmare is back.
He nearly destroyed her once, but she isn’t a victim anymore. This time, she will stop him, or she will die trying.

Now…
Dalbran knows nothing of friends, joy, or mischief. The orphaned ward of a ruthless warrior woman, she’s never showed him love or affection. Instead, she fills his days with learning the art of battle, savage teachings of how to survive in their harsh world. Days are filled with pain and exhaustion, but nighttime used to be his own. Even that is now lost, though, for something lurks in the shadows of sleep, clawing at him the moment his eyes close. He tells himself it’s okay, that he can handle it. However daunting the voices may be, however cold the hand that chokes him in the darkness, as long as it stays within the nightmare, everything will be all right.

As long as it stays within the nightmare…

About the Author:
abgArel hails from the sunny land of Florida, USA. She struggles with the heat and the social life and washes off the frustrations of it with large (likely unhealthy) doses of J. K. Rowling, J. R. R. Tolkien, Christopher Paolini, Anne McCaffrey, T. A. Barrons, and whatever other books she can get her greedy hands in.

She’s been writing since she was a little girl, and proudly declares herself a mythology junkie. She loves Fantasy, Romance, and History and is a big fan of comic books, especially Japanese manga (that’s right, you heard her!). Things would be far easier for Arel if she was not a writer, but hey, who doesn’t like a challenge, right?

You can contact her through her email: abgwriter@gmail.com

She will answer you (most likely) as soon as she can.

My Review: ✭✭✭✭
This is amazing for a debut novel. It is so complex and detailed. The characters are well thought out and interesting. The world is well done and the magic makes sense in it.

There is the confusion of the “then” and “now” that the author uses to tell the story. Switching back and forth can be very effective when telling this type of story and it can be confusing. It can also be both. This time it’s a double header. It really works well to tell the two aspects of the story this way, but initially, it is very confusing. It took me several switches to get comfortable with it. And figuring out who was the common character took me almost three-quarters of the book.

We start out with Rodan, the elf king’s brother and head of the White Knights, and Aelwyd also called Fairest One, who wears the Rose of Vallenthar, a blood ruby which holds great power and is hers for life. We meet a horrid monster who kills all he comes in contact with. And we end up with Dalbran Darod Thord, a strong warrior, and Naviri, the last unicorn.

This is the beginning of an epic fantasy series, I think. The author has set it up so that there are monsters aplenty to conquer. And a whole wide world to see for Dalbran and Naviri.
