Exciting new sequel to Willow of Ashes! A dark force threatens the world of Nirus. Prophecy says only the ShadowBlood can stop it. But who is this legendary hero... and will he be found in time?
When the false King of Everland declares war on the Reapers, Knights of the Death Realm are forced to fight against living souls in a double-war with both undead Necrofera demons and Everland armies. Caught in the middle are twin necromancers with an unusual condition...they share one body.
Xavier longs to be normal again, especially since he is now reunited with his fiance, Willow. When new information emerges about the possible location of his missing body, Xavier is thrilled. Now he just has to figure out how to put his soul back. And the Dream realm relic, the Orbs of Azure, may be the key.
But their quest takes a detour when their comrades are taken captive. The twins, now fully knighted reapers, join the Death princess on a dangerous rescue mission to free their friends from an impenetrable fortress, and discover unique magic abilities never seen before in the history of Nirus. During the treacherous journey, the reapers run into unexpected royal allies of different realms, all of whom are searching for the "ShadowBlood," someone who looks just like the twins... if they had been born as one.
A unique and original story of brotherhood, mystery, and unexplored experiences, the NecroSeam Chronicles takes readers on a thrilling adventure they won't soon forget!

The first three books in the NecroSeam series were published in 2018: Willow of Ashes, Orbs of Azure and Pearl of Emerald.

Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite Orbs of Azure is the second book in the Necroseam Chronicles by Ellie Raine. I read the first book in the series and I got hooked. This is that epic fantasy genre that draws you in with magic, mysteries, and epic resolutions to seemingly unsolvable problems. I have read Tolkien and most of the other great writers in this genre, and nobody, I repeat, nobody, does it better than Ellie Raine. Her magic is new and mysterious. Nothing is simple or straightforward. We have a protagonist with awesome powers, but he has to share them with his twin. We have sorcerers, wizards, and familiar mythical creatures, both good and bad. But Ellie Raine puts her own spin on everything. No one is quite as powerful as it looks like they should be, and seemingly innocuous powers are sometimes the most effective in the clutch. I think what I like most about Orbs of Azure is the writing. Ellie Raine writes beautifully and every aspect of Orbs of Azure benefits from it. The characters are described so well that you feel like they are old friends or your own personal enemies. The magic is well thought out and balanced. Neither side can gain the advantage unless they really know, and can use, and are gifted enough to use magic to their best advantage. But of course, characters drive a book and determine your feelings about it. You won’t find more sympathetic characters than Willow, Xavier, and Alexander. They are a potent force in this land of death. Rich in detail, with heroes larger than life, sometimes even larger than death itself, Orbs of Azure is a fantasy to remember.
Amazing sequel to fantasy epic "Willow of Ashes"! The world building and character development just keeps getting better. This book has everything I like in an epic fantasy: action, magic, dragons, humor, romance and an intricate, unpredictable plot. But most of all, the story of Xavier, Willow and all their friends is compelling., and even though the world and people are different, it's easy to relate to our world in our times. I couldn't put the book down. Good thing there's a third book out now: Pearl of Emerald.
