The Utdrendans have spoken, and everything has changed as a consequence. People normally avoid the fog surrounding the cursed Kingdom of Mar, but now they are asking sixteen-year-old Kaia Stone to venture into it. The Utdrendans implied that there is something special about Kaia. They claimed that she could help free the land; she need only carry out their instructions and deliver a message to the Marian king.
Mar, however, is a land in which dark secrets abound, and many will stop at nothing to ensure that it remains forever cursed. Determined to work against Kaia, unfriendly forces have already begun to gather.
Will Kaia choose to abandon the only life she’s ever known—perhaps indefinitely—in pursuit of the greater good…in pursuit of her purpose?
ARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Kaia’s adventure begins when she is set to deliver an important message to the king. Her journey was not an easy one. Secrets were uncovered, and multiple challenges were thrown at her.
I liked Kaia. She was a strong character. She was a risk taker, and instead of panicking, she thought up of ways to get out of a bad situation. Kaia’s sister Elania is also a favorite of mine. I have 2 other sisters, and I could relate to the protectiveness and love that they feel for one another.
I must say that i was quite overwhelmed with all the characters introduced in the first chapter. I had a hard time recognizing who was who, and I just got confused.
I’m expecting to fully grasp the world and the characters in the next book.
