Death and destruction will bar her way. . .

Kyndra's fate holds betrayal and salvation, but the journey starts in her small village. On the day she comes of age, she accidentally disrupts an ancient ceremony, ending centuries of tradition. So when an unnatural storm targets her superstitious community, Kyndra is blamed. She fears for her life until two strangers save her, by wielding powers not seen for an age - powers fuelled by the sun and the moon.

Together, they flee to the hidden citadel of Naris. And here, Kyndra experiences disturbing visions of the past, showing war and one man's terrifying response. She'll learn more in the city's subterranean chambers, amongst fanatics and rebels. But first Kyndra will be brutally tested in a bid to unlock her own magic.

If she survives the ordeal, she'll discover a force greater than she could ever have imagined. But could it create as well as destroy? And can she control it, to right an ancient wrong?


The Cover

Another book that PanMacmillan has repackaged, reshelved and reread by a few. This is a lot better suited to trilogy than the original jacked design. 

The Content

It would be a lie if I said that I went into this with no preconceived notion of somebody else's opinion, After reading Starborn, I can safely say that I disagree with said person's opinion and I enjoyed this, a lot.

Pacing is something that I thought to be the main issue that I had and only in the last hundred- hundred and fifty pages. A lot of events and unravels happened that I couldn't get a grasp of straight away. I had to reread a few pages 

 more than I would have thought. Kendra has a unique arc that I hadn't seen with used with many protagonists.
