Review: Legend's by Mara Reitsma, and Mark McQuillen
SynopsisMalice had loved, and lost; but the world had not ended. There was so much more to do, so much anger to release. But when a messenger arrives with word of a love returned, after all this time; and carrying a warning that will send ripples across the expanse of space and time, Malice must find the one who holds the key to unlocking the secrets of the enemy, and free Marena from her sweet slumber.
Marena, had been captured by the enemy, torn from Malice's grip as her heart broke. She had been everything to Malice, and was still to this day, though Malice had found herself wrapped in the arms of another. But still, Malice could not resist the urge to answer Marena's call, delivered by the lips of a Demon. Her love had been lost, and though found, remained trapped in the prison of her own mind; a mind, the enemy had warped and twisted...
Kember had been called many things, but she was, by birth right, of royal blood. A Witch, like her mother, she had ties to the outer worlds, that not even her closest friends had knowledge of. She knew things, knew people, and when word of Marena crossed her path, she knew there was one person, who could help her.
Banished from the Order, for breaking their most sacred law and saving the life of another, she remembers nothing; but the visions that plague her. Not even her own, she is forced to witness the lives of others spread out across time, though never catching a glimpse of her own.
Written on pages, and collected within a leather bound cover, were the words of days past, and those yet to come. Engraved with swirls and laced with thin strips of copper cord, the book, and the visions recorded inside, was but a journal; and Navina, was the key.
Lync, had no family. No parents, no nothing. Cast out into the world, each memory forged on his own, he knows nothing of where he came from; just another orphaned soul, lost in the Verse that was. He knows his female is something special, though. He knows that she harbors a dark secret, but his love for her is stronger than ever, and he would die before letting his Navina suffer. 'Write it all down, my love. Let the visions come, record them, and let them be free of your thoughts!'
Together, with the help of smooth talking Demon, and the daughter of the Lord of Darkness, himself, they will find the answers they are looking for; even if it takes them beyond the rift. The stories contained within that leather bound book, would guide them to places they could never imagine; and unlock the mysteries surrounding Marena, and the enemy from the other side.
Get in to those comfy pants, gather what you'll need for the next day or so, and sit back... because this book is going to suck you in and not let go. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and your heart will feel like it ran a marathon as you read each chapter of.....
It's a remarkable story which kept me engrossed right from the very beginning. There is so much happening in this novel, so many turns and twists, it's truly an amazing read.
Navina dreams about things that are not her memories, or may be they are, she doesn't remember much of her past. All she knows is that she was one of the Order. They are destined to witness what happened in the Verse but they cannot interfere. When ever she has one of her dreams she right it down. May be some day these things will make sense to her... Lync is her male. No one knows who or what he actually is. All they know is that he is not human, and that he can't live without Navina. Kember is a witch and their best friend.
When their world is threatened they're forced to work with daughters of the Lord of Darkness, and their mates to try and unravel the mystery of their past, present, and future. Sometimes things go their way, sometimes not so much, but through it all they learn to survive. Slowly the mystery will be solved. But there is still more to come....
The story is set in a fantasy world. It's a mixture of sci-fiction, paranormal, fantasy, romance, and adventure. In other words this book is perfect for anyone who loves to read fanciful stories.
