From Darkness Won
Achan steps into his role as Crown Prince and prepares for war. But war against whom? Could Esek still be alive? Has Lord Nathak taken Esek’s place? Or is the mysterious Hadad the true enemy Achan must confront?
Vrell has her own agenda of serving Prince Oren as a healer, but when she is stormed and lost to the Veil, Achan does all he can to bring her back. His conversations with her are strange, though, as if she has no memory of who he is.
In a land consumed by Darkness, the fate of Er’Rets hangs in the balance as Achan endeavors to take the throne and end the reign of Darkness.
The end nears! I enjoyed this book better than the last one, but not as much as the first of the series. Achan has (finally) decided to believe wholeheartedly in Arman (God) and trust that things will work out whatever happens. This book takes us through the final battles and the final resolution for Er’Rets (which is the weirdest name if I can say that) and for Achan and Vrell. It was a good ending, but kinda lacking at the same time. I can’t really tell people to definitely go out and read this series simply because it wasn’t written very well as a whole. It had its moments but let me down in other respects as to plot line and development. It was a solid average series, and I’ve never read a Christian fiction before that wasn’t LDS (Latter-Day Saint) so it was a bit strange for me. Overall though it was fun to read and I’m not sorry I read it, but can’t really say drop everything and go get it.
3 out of 5 for the series
