The Leviathans are loose in the world, and no place is safe. And yet one man must fight against all odds to set the wrong he did right.
The Leviathans have escaped the eternal hell into which they were banished by the Creator. The visions that the shamans receive are ambiguous but show that the world wouldn't be a safe place now that the leviathans roam in it. And yet, the Council of Magical Species doesn't want to do anything until they are sure of the facts. Magician Cole and Mira, the shaman, set out for China to discover the truth behind the visions. Murder. Lies. Dark magic. Betrayal and deceit. It's only when Cole loses Mira that he realizes that he has been set up, and in order to undo the wrong, he needs to retrace his steps and seek help from unexpected friends.

Because tales should be told.
L.A. Maldonado is the author of one of my favorite books, "Cypress Creek." This is another hit. Although it is not quite as scary as "Cypress Creek," it is even better written. It is exciting and suspenseful with a few unexpected plot twists. The narrator gave a A+ performance. This is a fabulous fantasy/horror story.
I really liked Mira, the shaman (shawoman?). She is gentle and sweet but has a deep determination and strength. She has a gift/curse that is difficult to live with, yet she manages it with grace.
Rain would be my second favorite character. Adam Zens gives him a perfect voice. It is amazing. The guy is sheer and delicious evil.
I did listen to it in one sitting, even though it is a little over 7 hrs. :) It is a great story, and I had a lot of work to do that day.
This is a fairly clean book. No gratuitous swearing or raunchy sex scenes. Appropriate for your teenager.
