Book Description:

Winner of the 2016 Independent Author Book Of The Year Award for ‘Outstanding Fantasy’ and semi-finalist in the Kindle Book Awards.

It is said that the past always returns to haunt you, yet some forgotten pasts have whispered names and a debt for collection.

Dangerous curiosities stir a hidden darkness, one that patiently waits to seize control. The subtle periphery between dream and reality is in peril, and those chosen must face the evil behind this looming disaster.

But lurking in the shadows, guiding their hand, lies the true threat – and a hidden agenda. Can they discover the truth in time, or will would-be-heroes become nothing more than pawns of evil?

Darrienia (The Forgotten Legacies Series Book 1) by K.J. Simmill is a wonderful fantasy novel I have read and K.J goes on describing her own pure imagination throughout this book impressing the reader's mind. It is so correct to mention here that the tale kept me in its captivity throughout my reading and I highly enjoyed this. The book is descriptive and easily understandable as well. The book itself is action and character driven, the heroes face great beasts as well as their own personal challenges that need to be overcome if they are to save Darrienia, and their own world, from the peril set into place by Night. The characters are forced to grown and change as their adventure progresses, forming bonds of friendship, but even friendship has its limits, especially when each of them harbours a secret, or hidden agenda. Through out the book K.J. surprised me and kept me guessing and yet I found controversy at the end I have to say that I did not see that coming. It took me by surprise and I was drawn away to an emotional stream which I enjoyed very much. A+ for this book.

I’ve had my eye on Darrienia (The Forgotten Legacies Series Book 1) for a while and it was a great way to end my reviews for 2017! Read on for my thoughts! Synopsis (from the author): It is said that the past always returns to haunt you. Yet some forgotten pasts have whispered names and a debt for collection. Dangerous curiosities stir a hidden darkness, one that patiently waits to seize control. The subtle periphery between dream and reality is in peril and those chosen must face the evil behind this looming disaster. But lurking in the shadows, guiding their hand, lies the true threat and a hidden agenda. Will they discover the truth in time? Or will those who should be heroes, become nothing more than the pawns of evil? What I liked: Darrienia had many things I like to find in fantasy novels. The world building was amazing, the characters well developed, and the book provided plenty of action, mystery and a grand quest. The intricate plot referenced Greek mythology and the quarrels among the gods, while it kept me guessing about what would happen next. All in all, an excellent fantasy! What I didn’t like: At times, Darrienia left me confused as to whether the characters were in the dream world or not. The length of the book also made it a tad difficult for me to keep up with everything that happened. Neither of these things detracted from my overall enjoyment of the novel. Overall impression: When you read this book, be prepared for an excellent though long read! The intricate plot, interesting characters, the intrigue surrounding Zo and Marise, and the quest make this a fantasy that I highly recommend! My rating: 5 Stars
