Genre Fantasy Romance
Dara Khan Androcles never fit in no matter where she was. Always different, always adrift, healing and doing what she could to ease a person’s suffering, Dara finds out soon enough what she really is and what destiny has in store with her when war rages across her land and her friends and family brutally slain or cowered. Then she meets Loran, an Elven prince who helps Dara find a way to fight the encroaching evil that covers Dara’s homeland. Secrets abound, passion is scorching and powers unlike both have ever seen before are coming full circle as Dara and Laren race against the clock to stop a madman from enslaving them all!
Wow is all this reviewer can say after reading DUALITY. It was a spellbinding story full of elves, magic, demons, war and love among other things to keep the reader enthralled from start to finish. With each page, get drawn in a world where a demon possessed madman is determined to cause havoc and chaos before destroying everything in his path that opposes him. It takes Dara, a Halfling who has no idea what her destiny holds or why she always felt out of place in her homeland, to tip the balance in favor of the light as darkness grows. Throw in a handsome Elven prince, some magical elemental mages, and you’ve got a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat as the twists and turns captivate you.
Ms. Wildes delivers a fast pace ride so hang on tight as you read DUALITY. This is the first book in this author’s Guardians of the Light series and this reviewer is anxiously awaiting the next chapter in this riveting tale. With complex characters that fairly leap off the pages to magic that will wrap itself around you, the story itself grows with each page. This reviewer was hard-pressed not to bring out Tolkin’s Lord of the Ring’s books. This is an author who delves deep into the souls of her characters, giving them vulnerabilities that had me weeping at times and laughing at others. With each page, DUALITY delivers a spellbinding story that will keep you entertained till the very end. I am looking forward to the next chapter of the Guardian’s of the Light Series and hope I don’t have to wait long for it. If you enjoy a wonderful, lyrical story that seems to melt as you read it with captivating characters then run to grab DUALITY. It will keep you enthralled from start to finish!
