Books written in blood. Most are lost, their Keepers with them. A curse that befell a people. A Kingdom with no King. Life couldn’t get more harrowing for the Elfies, a blend of Elves and Fairies. Or for sixteen-year-old Jules Blaze. Or could it?
For Jules, the heir of a Keeper, no less, suspects his family hides a forgotten secret. It was bad enough that his people, the Elfies of Reign, triggered a curse which reduced the entire inhabitants to a mere inch centuries ago. All because of one Keeper who failed his purpose. Even the King’s Ancient Books, did not help ward off that anathema.
Now, Gehzurolle, the evil lord, and his armies of Scorpents, seem bent on destroying Jules and his family. Why? Gehzurolle’s agents hunt for Jules as he journeys into enemy land to find the truth. Truth that could save him and his family, and possibly even reverse the age-long curse. Provided Jules doesn't get himself killed first.
I felt like Emma did a great job investing in her characters and the world she built around them. I love the old stories mixed into the story that she's telling.
She did a great job at character development and arcs. I'm a big character person and I felt like you could connect with these ones!
In the end I wanted more, I wanted to know what happened next. It was a good read.
I recommend it for fantasy lovers and those that enjoy a book that will take you out of the world you're living and drop you into a new one with new rules!
