Imagine being able to visit any library in the world with just a key phrase… pretty cool, right? This becomes a reality for Gia. She doesn’t know she do it until quite possibly the most handsome guy she’s ever seen vanishes. This starts a journey she couldn’t even dream of, but was destined for! One wizard wants total control and revenge, however there’s a prophecy claiming a child born to two Sentinels will be the one to stop him. Is Gia the child of the prophecy? If so, will she be brave enough to stop the horrible wizard?
This was an action packed story that flowed quite well. That being said, there was so much going on that at times it was just too much. The world building was a bit slow, but if you’ve ever been to Boston you will have a few points of references. What I found fascinating was the world building of the mystical world and the magic within it. The bravery of Gia and the sincerity of Arik made this an interesting story. The slow build of their romance was perfect. This is set up to be an amazing series and I can’t wait to follow and see where it leads!
