Aurora Grimaldi’s life has been about fighting for justice under the ruthless regime of Shadow kingdoms. In a twist of fate, she uncovers a secret organization run by creatures of magic- the Imperium.
The Imperium is in a crisis. Something has been stolen from them and they will stop at nothing to get it back. The more Aurora gets involved, the deeper she is pulled into a web of lies and deceit. And it doesn’t help when the Shadow kingdoms start interfering.
With the thief lurking in the shadows, Aurora struggles to find her place in everything that is going on and her choices may just have far more dangerous consequences than she could have imagined.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
In a genre mashup of fantasy and dystopian, we meet Aurora, a female lead worthy of the big screens. Aurora is caught in a magical crisis that threatens to destroy the world as she knows it.
Written at a very fast pace and with multiple POV switches, as well as timeline switches, there were times when this book got difficult to follow. I LOVE different POVs, but even I got a bit confused at times and had to go back and reread things. There were also a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could not overlook.
This storyline is very original, and that is what kept me reading. Rarely do you get such well researched and plotted tales, and when I find one like this it always brightens my day. The door to a brand new world was opened when I picked up this tale, and I can't wait to see what further surprises are in store for the rest of the series.
