Raised in a secluded cottage, Keith has only ever known the outside world through the travels of his father. Yet, that all changes when he's forced from the comforts of his family home into a world he only envisioned. Now stranded in a thief's paradise, he begins to entwine the lives of others on a very personal and timely quest to discover the truth behind his secretive upbringing.
Meet a half-breed black wing seeking his captive mother in the human realms in order to escape his pure-blood family; an alchemist wielding a newfound power he hopes will make him the magic user he has always wished to be; a healer seeking to destroy the very foundation that lead to the division of his people; and two sister unicorns - one pure and one dark. Keith will discover his connection to a nearly forgotten race and a cycle in nature that needs to be preserved before time runs out.
I enjoyed the drama and character development. The story builds with surprises and thrills. For me a true test is whether I am excited to read the next book, and I am hooked.
