This is an amazing book tht everyone should read like seriously
Altryon is a city within a wall that protects it from the outside. The creator of the city then bestowed one three families powers of beyond regular citizens. The families then decide to fight each other to try and control Altryon. After nearly destroying everything the power is taken away from them and an emperor is elected to run Altryon. The families are given different areas of the city for territory. But they are always fighting, whether it is out in the open with innocents being hurt or killed or through political conniving and rumors trying to destroy each other and the continuous fight for power. But they are all ruled over by the emperor. The story follows along with several teenagers from all of the families. Neil is a Vapros and trying to be an assassin, Lily is a Celerius and trying to uphold her families name, and Darius is a Taurlum that has hit rock bottom and seems to be stuck there. All of them have been fed several stories of how they have to fight the other families to uphold there names and power but none of them really know what they are fighting for. But after a meeting with the emperor, Neil thinks something is going on. When the families are all attacked and members killed they will all have to ask themselves what they are willing to do to fight the evil emperor and what they will do with the truth of the world outside the city walls. This is a great story. I got sucked in with everyone’s stories. I couldn’t help sympathizing with them all as they are trying to uphold each of their families legacies. But when they realize that there is than just your family duties but that they would have to work together, I was cheering. There is a lot going on with this story and I loved how this one ended. I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next story. Kyle Prue is a young author but he is one that you don’t want miss. His writing just draws you in and keeps you wanting more. There is a great story that is well developed and very descriptive. I will be making sure to keep my eyes out for all of his books.
