Mercy has been keeping a secret from his loved ones and his village. A secret that could very well end his life. 

Descended from a group of ancient warriors from Aitus, Mercy is destined to become the greatest Keeper of Light the planet has ever seen, but one mistake will cost him everything. With his secret out, Mercy must now find a way to free his people and keep himself alive before Queen Mala and her Unity Council can cause any more damage. 

With the help of his best friend, Sylas, and an unlikely ally from the capital of Ozra, Mercy will need to master his Keeping of the Light Source, and learn to accept who he was always meant to be.

Engaging storytelling!

The story is amazing, the trio it follows are easy to relate to and you can really tell a lot of planning went into each of their arcs. Patrick is an amazing voice to be reading and you can tell his excitement while reading the action scenes and keeping you engaged. His performance during the sadder scenes also brought tears to my eyes. For a debut novel, this book hits it out of the park!

TikTok brought me here.

I really did enjoy the story. I will absolutely read the next book. The story line could have used more of a set up and Easter eggs throughout when it came to plot twists later in the book. The story seemed rushed and then slowed and then rushed. Like she was trying to get more story line when instead she could have spent more time setting up. Some of the story line didn’t fit other parts as well and there are a lot of unanswered questions. Also kind of upsetting that we are teased with Sy and Cals relationship just for it to be torn away. Overall great book and I will enjoy seeing her grow as an author.

An Excellent Book but left me wanting more

I quite enjoyed the book. It didn't take long to become invested in the characters or story. By it's end I wanted more.

I do wish there was more back ground given between Aitians and humans. like how long they been on earth and other early history.

Just get it!! This is an amazing story, and I can not wait for the next book. The narrator did an amazing job and seem just as into the story as I was. The character arcs are amazing for all of them. Now I am waiting impatiently for the next book.

Absolutely Amazing!!

I can’t express how much I enjoyed listening to this story. The characters are well written, fully developed, and relatable. The three main characters intertwining relationships and growth was heartwarming. Not to add any pressure but when is book 2 coming? I need more!!

I usually read non-fiction. This story really struck me and I was hooked immediately. Fantastic story telling. The voice actor conveys the characters personalities perfectly, making the narration flow. I am looking forward to the next installment. Perfect for all readers or your gift list.
