For too long, Chiari Jhahn has been forced to watch her elder sister’s savage regime destroy the very heart of the Shifter Realm. And now it seems as if her sister, Huntress Reyhani, is hell-bent on starting a war with their long-time enemies, the Vampires of the Everdark. After a disastrous confrontation leaves a prominent leader dead and the peace negotiations stalled, Chiari feels she has no choice but to start a revolution—it’s either that, or watch her people become nothing more than prey for a much stronger predator. Chiari must use every ounce of her intellect and cunning to build a rebellion that will topple her sister from power. But when her friends prove to be worse than her enemies, Chiari finds herself drawn into an intricate web of political intrigue and personal betrayal that could end up igniting the war she’d hoped to stop.

Meanwhile, Matthias Corvas, a human from the Shadow Lands, is hosting an important visitor: a prince of the Solandian Empire. Normally, diplomatic envoys represent the possibility of alliances and trade deals. But the prince of Solandia has a warning for Matthias—his emperor would rather conquer than talk of peace. Knowing his people have no chance against an army ten times the size of their whole population, Matthias must race to find allies in a world where none seem to exist. His only hope is to seek help from the fabled lands of the Fringe—after all, an alliance with blood-sucking predators is better than no alliance at all. But when his search for allies lands him smack in the middle of the Shifters’ war with the Vampires, Matthias discovers that his peoples’ troubles are just a small facet of the building firestorm that could tear the whole world asunder.

For Chiari and Matthias to succeed, they must uncover a conspiracy of continental proportions and root out the war-mongers who are threatening to destroy the fragile peace between the realms. But Vampires aren’t the only monsters in the dark—and they’re not the only predators out for blood. Their shared dream of peaceful coexistence may be nothing more than a naïve fantasy. When political ambition is matched against predatory instinct, the phrase “coming back to bite you” takes on a whole new meaning.

“Definitely worth reading!”

Five Star Review on Amazon By Mratclif

I was given the opportunity to review this book through a review website and let me tell you it was not what I expected. I loved this book. The story line follows shifter Chiari and Prince Matthias as they both work to prevent wars in two very different worlds. War is brewing with the shifters and vampires and also with the humans. Chiari’s sister is current Huntress ruling all the clans within their kingdom, and she feels that her sister is leading through the worst possible means. The two main characters go through a variety of situations that cause them to grow as characters. The book does have several scenes that are a little gory. The surrounding scenery as described by the author is magical. I found it easy to get lost in. This book is definitely worth reading.
