After the rise of a deity…
…they fled to a magical kingdom.
But can they ever return?
Nara had spent thousands of years trapped inside her deranged mother’s castle. After being enrolled at the Knight Academy, she thought she’d finally be free. She had everything – a mentor in magic, a loving boyfriend, and a group of friends she called family.
But then it all fell to pieces.
One of her friends was possessed by an ancient evil. The only way for the rest of them to stay alive was to return to her mother’s kingdom.
Nara never expected to return to Aria, let alone after switching bodies with her best friend. Nor did Nara ever think she would be reunited with her traitorous undead ex. To save the only true family she loves, Nara must play a game of life and death against an unknown foe.
The Beast will claim its first victim. And a war is coming.
Friends out to save the multiverse.
I liked the Egyptian aspects with Osiris as the bad guy, and the Arthurian mythology tossed into the story as well.
At the start it felt like a big info dump as the last book and events leading to the present state of things were thrown at me all at once. After I got my head around that, the story moved along nicely. Lots of twists and turns, action, and a bit of romance.
I was not fond of the voice the narrator used for Nora, but he kept her in character and maintained her accent, plus I liked the other voices.
