Overview

Duty versus love is the one battle warrior Kae does not know how to fight.

Kae has trained his entire life to become an elite Protector of the Realm. When he finally achieves this honor he finds himself protecting something far greater: the Veil separating two worlds. On one side of the Veil lie unlimited stores of magic. On the Realm's side, magic is all but obliterated, and Kae is one of the few who can use it. The priests who secretly rule the Realm will do everything they can to control his growing magical abilities. Kae's willing to pay the price, even though it separates him from Issa, the girl he loves.

But the Veil has weakened over the last thousand years and powers on both sides will stop at nothing to keep it intact. Strangers from the other side have kidnapped Issa to take her across the Veil and sacrifice her to strengthen it. Kae is the only one who can find her. Going to her rescue means forsaking his oaths and duty, and leaving behind the future he always wanted. But if he chooses duty over love, Issa will die.

    Almost 1000 years ago, the kingdom was split into two parts and a veil was created to keep the two sides separate. However they didn’t always stay separate. The Queen of the larger, more human kingdom came from across the veil. However not everyone was happy she arrived, and it led to her death.

    The kingdom has priests, who have magic, and protectors, people skilled in types of magic and protective fighting arts. And then there are the “pure ones” but they are a secret only a few know about.

    Kei is friend and protector of the Issa, the princess. He loves her, which is not allowed. He also has unusual skills that scare the priests, so he is transferred. The something happens to Issa and he may be her only hope.

    This story is a sweeping epic type story. Sometimes I had trouble keeping all the people straight. A lot of the names were similar enough, and there were a lot of people that had key roles, that I got them confused. I think if I had taken the time to make a character tree a lot of that issue would have been resolved.

    The story has unrequited love, fantasy, adventure, fighting, travel, space hopping, a historical feel, and magic. All my favorite things rolled into one. The story was charming, fun, and moved along at a good clip. I give this story 4 out of 5 clouds.

    This epic fantasy book is about a world that is divided by a barrier. The Protector Kae has to figure out his role in this strange world, while also dealing with his love for the princess, who he is not allowed to love. The story is told from the viewpoint of many characters, which I like. All of them are engaging and my personal favorites were Entan, King Ardnan, and of course Kae. I recommend this book to epic and high fantasy fans.
