Far, far away, hidden on Insula Sacra—Island of the Accursed— lives a forgotten world of man and beast.
Damned by the Gods, and forced to live in everlasting darkness, they continue to fight a war that has long since been buried in time.
With each rise and fall of the cursed moon, they are reminded of all they’ve lost.
Desperate for freedom, they await the night the one true king will rise to power and free them from the curse.
The King, however, cannot rise without his Queen—both blessed with the mark of the Gods, they must end the war to save them all.
Or so the legend says…
My Review: 3 1/2 stars
This is my first “shifter” book. It was different but it wasn’t bad.
This book has multiple characters.
Karzan- The true king of the island of Insula Sacra but he doesn’t know that yet. It’s a secret his mother has been hiding from him. He is half human/half beast, but he has never been able to release his beast since a curse was put over the island by the gods.
Janey- Has been told stories of Insula Sacra since she was little. She wants to find it one day. To see if the legend of the island is true.
“It’s a legend, Janey. And legends always ring with truth.”
Kirkcheck- Who took over the kingdom once Karzan’s father was killed and his mother ran away with him to keep him safe.
Kala- Karzan’s mom who has done her best to protect her son. But when the time comes, she will push him to do what is right.
When Janey ends up on Insula Sacra, everything on the island changes. The curse has been broken and Karzan realizes that his true mate is near. The mate he has dreamed about.
But how can Janey be his true mate? They have never met. He has never seen her. But he can feel her presence. He just knows that she is what will make everything better.
“Peace is won with war. It’s not given; it’s taken.”
But what happens when Kirkcheck finds her? Will Karzan be able to save her in time or will he fail and lose her forever?
This book was different than any book I have ever read. I liked it. Didn’t love it, but it was a good story. I was able to connect with the characters. I was able to follow the story.
Overall, a decent read.
