Filled to the brim with forbidden love, an ancient evil, and a nation in disrepair, Empyreal Fate is a tale of riveting bravery and mortal corruption.
The land of Llathala lingers on the brink of war between men and elves, a dark history surrounding each race. Stirred by tensions of the land, a shadow of the past reemerges, taking precedence in reality and consuming the very soul of mans’ mortal weakness. Darrion, the son of a poor laborer, is ensnared in a hostile world, forced to choose between loyalty to his king or the counsel of the elves. Yet Fate has other plans in store, tying his course to Amarya, an elven royalblood of mysterious quality and unsurpassable beauty. But this forbidden connection incites betrayal from members of their own kin, marking them as traitors to the crown. In a land torn asunder, only Fate’s decree can allow such love to coexist with an ancient enmity.
Behold: A Llathalan Annal: Empyreal Fate – Part One.
Blurb and cover from Goodreads
Been a long time since I’ve read an *epic* fantasy!
I think it’s time to run again.
Oh, yeah, Drevan. Sure it’s *your brother* who’s the fanciful one.
Stop that psychotic human! Stop him at once!
Shouldn’t somebody be watching the baby?
Oh, of course. Stab yourself in the leg, everyone knows that’s an excellent anger management practice.
Sethran is acting so dumb…
Curses! Insults! Unrepeatable oaths! She BETTER not go through with this or there will be CONSEQUENCES!!!
Now would be a really awesome time for Sethran to show up…
I DO NOT LIKE THE CURRENT COURSE THIS STORY IS TAKING!!!
Tell the king anyway. Tell the king anyway. Tell the king anyway. Do I have to say it again?
Here’s an idea: Why don’t we bump off this Laervyen creep? Then 51% of our problems would be solved!
Gee, the murder option looks prettier with each passing paragraph…
Where have those flippin’ fairies gone?!?!?!
I love the idea of a review in progress report status! I’ve not read the book but your little comments made me laugh – especially the one for 70%
I wrote a proper review, but looking back at my Goodreads status updates, I HAD to find something to do with them, so… =D
Great way for us to follow your trail of thought as you read the book… most enjoyable:)
These were my Goodreads status updates. Glad you enjoyed them!
