There are some on our planet who believe you can't handle the truth, so the truth has been hidden for millennia. The only problem is the truth is coming back. Early. Some of the crazy history shows on cable TV might not have the answers, but at least they ask the right questions. Detective Leira Berens idea of fun is hunting down a killer. Her closest friends hang out at the bar right across the patio from her front door. It's a little weird for an Austin Police Detective, but at least it is predictable. That's about to change. Leira's new definition for weird some have called crazy. But she ends up being the right human for the job. An Elven Prince has been murdered in the magical world of Oriceran and Leira is asked to capture the killer and reclaim the powerful magical artifact before everything goes boom. Somewhere in this mess, she acquires a six-inch troll and a whole new understanding of history. But that's just the beginning of the story. Well, the beginning of an entire Universe. Welcome to the Revelations of Oriceran. Because some believe you can't handle the truth.
This book is the first step into the Oriceran Universe. It is the first step in an incredible journey that will pull you in and keep you until you realize with a sigh that you are at the end of the book. Luckily there are 5 books out, not counting book 0, and book 6 is on the horizon. Let yourself go and experience some wonderful storytelling by Martha Carr.
I rather enjoyed listening to this audio version of this story. The narrator brought Liera to life. Definitely looking forward to listening to the next one. The author notes are a little off, sounding more like they are sitting in a big empty room.
Enjoyable though it's a bit short. Nevertheless I was engrossed in the story. Well narrated. I find the protagonist interesting with a strong personality. There' are lots of action and I am looking forward to the next book.
Intro to the Revelations of Oriceran series where Leira Berens, an Austin Police Detective, is drawn into the investigation of the murder of a Prince of the Light Elves. Eventually, we will learn more about Leira's abilities, the world of Oriceran, and a prophecy thousands of years in the making.... the stage has been set for a quirky main character and mini trouble-making sidekick. Have fun!
