Overview

Book One in the adult epic fantasy series.

When your family, your home, and the very land you stand on are destroyed, what do you do? If you are a shifter of Massa, you turn around and fight. You fight, because the blood oath will have it no other way.

The idyllic lives of four elemental shifters living in the exiled land of Pyraan are shattered when a tour of legion duty gives witness to a brutal enemy invasion. Despite the heroic efforts of the shifters, the land falls to the invaders. As the only survivors, the four friends are forced to flee south into the lands from which they were banished to warn of the invasion. Heartbroken and weary, the shifters soon learn that the safe haven they hoped to find is cloaked in danger. Throughout a journey fraught with prophesy, betrayal and peril, an enduring friendship prevails, love blossoms, and a riveting saga unravels.

I am not a HUGE fantasy reader, but there was something about the cover that drew me to ask the author to review her book. I am so glad that I did. This book is wonderful! The characters are developed and you want all the crappy things that seem to be happening at once to just go away so they can have their happily ever after. But then I suppose if that happened, we wouldn't get to see them develop further! The story is crafted in a wonderful fashion. You get to see different perspectives- something that Valerie has done well (I've read some stories where it should not have been done, ever.) You can feel the darkness of the Mages. I wanted to riot for the Shifters and rid them of their Blood Oath, who needs exile, right? I cannot wait to read the second book, which Valerie is also allowing me to review! I highly recommend this book to all fantasy readers, and anyone that loves the actiony aspect of a good quest. Dude, just read the book everyone! *I received this book in exchange for an honest review*

I've been reading fantasy for over 30 years and lately I find myself bogged down in all of these 1000 page backbreakers that take so long to read and have just as many characters as they do pages. How refreshing to read a fantasy that was just one plot twist after another with characters I really cared about. i will definitely read the next book. This was a very good read!

Won't lie, the cover didn't impress me & I catch myself attempting to judge the inside with the outside. Fortunately, I read it anyway, enjoyed it & look forward to the rest of the series. I am not a YA, but read more in that style because it feels like authors provide more energy/ action & drama to hold your interest (and apparently mine). The 4 is because although it is good, I can't say I can't wait to read it again. Enjoy :)

Must read. Would be my award for fantasy book of the year. I dont think i have ever read a book that made me cry tears before. 4 especially gifted "shifters" or mages, in a land where all mqgic is outcast, suddenly find their world and lives ripped apart, when a 300 year old monstrous sorcerer and miss legions, attqck their outpost, an wipe out their entire ranks quickly. What ensues is an adventure of lifetime, with highs and lows. The writing kept me enraptured. You will come to poinr in the book, where they stop being characters, and you begin to finish this book as their friends. If you read anybook on nook, read this one.

I was surprised at how much I liked this book. Was well thought out, flowed well. If you like magic, elves ect.. you will like this book. A great good against evil book. I would recommend this to anybody who likes this sci/fi style of book.

This was a great book! Over 800 pages and it was free. I found it listed under the paranormal genre but it is more like Science Fiction & Fantasy. If you like Lord of the Rings, then you might like this one. Has Elves, Dwarves, Magai, Demons, etc. Will definitely be looking into more books by this author.

This book was a very good read! The ending has you wanting to read the next one! Never a dull moment, I didn't want to put it down. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good book about magic, mage's and magical cat's.

I enjoyrd this book a lot. While it can get a little predictable, and there are some adult themes as is stated in the description there are a few good things. It has a unique way of magic that I have nevrr seen before and it's ending is satifying. The characters are unique and they are well developed. There are points where it drags a litte though; esspecially when reading from the enemy perspective.

While the concept is good, the execution is not. The story limps and stutters along. The characters, intriguing at first, became boring and predictable the more I read. I couldn't finish this one.
