Overview

Seth is a young man torn by fear and indecision. His life no longer in his hands, he fears an uncertain future where the only certainty is a life of servitude to the kingdom. Fortunatly for Seth, he is not alone. His brother Garret too attends the choosing ceremony where their fates will be decided. Together the twins make their way to the castle city of Valdadore for the choosing ceremony but along the way Seth notices a strange new trend in his life. Time after time strange circumstances befall him in what others might call a coincidence, but Seth knows something else is amiss and begins mentally cataloging each new and strange event. Learning his past is all a lie, Seth begins to fear more for his future as a dark goddess vies for his service to her cause. Seths loyalties and responsibilities begin to stack up as he makes friends and allies and even falls in love, but with the choosing ceremony growing ever nearer will he be forced to flee the kindom into a life of exile, or choose to serve the goddess who swears that only through her will he find peace.

Meet the Author

I currently live in southern Louisiana with my wife and children, though I grew up in Michigan, graduating high school in Mason MI. I also spent time living in North Carolina, Florida, and California during my time in the United States Marine Corps. I have always dreamed of publishing my work, and seeing it on a bookshelf in a store, however with the huge shift to digital media I finally realized that the dream was in my own hands. I tell my children that they can live their dreams, and I believe in leading by example. I enjoy writing across several different genres from poetry, to children's stories, to full epic fantasies. Creating new characters for my readers to connect with, new worlds for them to immerse themselves in, and new ideas to wrap their minds around is an amazing if not humbling experience. I hope that all my readers can take something away from each of my books, and enjoy reading them just as much as I have enjoyed putting them in print. Semper Fidelis

an amazing book of brothorhood and true love tho there is no sex in this part of the series there is sum in the next book how ever i think most parents wont be hard pressed to hand this to a child of at least 13 14 years old if any thing the main characters desire to wait for it untill they are "joined" should be applauded!!!

The storyline is good. How the characters interact with each other especially Seth and Sara is terrible no-one would sleep like that that is how you die.

I liked the idea of the story but was disappointed in the details. The characters were not developed and I was especially not at all impressed by Sara, Seth's love interest, who appeared shallow. Her only interests seemed to be how well she could "tease" and "tempt" Seth, which made the story totally unsuitable for readers under 17.

I can't rate the book, I'm rating the overview: It would be **SO NICE** if the book overview gave some hint as to age appropriateness.   Some clues as to what might be included - adult themes, horror, sex, etc.   I love to get books for my kids but can't pre-read every book for them.   Would like to just shop with a clue whether I'm going to regret loading this for a 13yo or not.
