Nocturne, a wilderness of eternal night.
Solis, a wasteland of endless day.
Nazafareen is a Breaker, a mortal who has the rare ability to shatter spell magic—although her power carries a high price. With the memories of her former self erased and nowhere else to turn, she comes to Nocturne hoping to start a new life under the triple moons of the darklands.
But when an assassin forces Nazafareen to flee to the sunlit mortal city of Delphi, she finds herself embroiled in a deeper mystery whose origins lie far in the past. Why was the continent sundered into light and dark a thousand years before? And what really happened to the elegant but ruthless creatures who nearly reduced the world to ashes? The new Oracle might know, but she’s outlawed magic and executes anyone caught practicing it. Nazafareen must hide her powers and find a way out of the city—before it’s too late.
As the net slowly tightens, something ancient and vengeful begins to stir in the arid death zone called the Kiln. A dashing daeva named Darius is pursuing Nazafareen, but so are a multitude of enemies. War is brewing again. Can she stay alive long enough to stop it?
So begins the first installment in an epic new fantasy series from the author of the Fourth Element Trilogy!
The book was a real blast!!
Oh dear, I can't even being to put into words how amazing this book was.
I had missed Nazi & Darius so much, it was a real pleasure (the coming home sort of feeling) to meet them once again.
Although, at some point, I really wanted to take them aside and slap some damn sense into them, lol.
Anyway, I love each one of them so so much, I can't even bring to explain...
The new characters were really interesting ( except you Galen, you were just irritating...)
Javid was real fun (poor boy, he didn't know Nazi can be a sort of walking "disaster"). And Culach, was a revelation, respect for you man! (I'd never thought I'd say this haha).
The only complaint (not so much anyway) is that I missed Balthazar a little bit. But that's fine, it's just fangirling heart speaking!
The plot was terrific (hello, creepy-bitch oracle plus annoying lapdog) but I don't want to say more as to not spoil you anything.
You can enjoy Nocturne even without having read the first trilogy, still I'd advise to read it in order to enjoy this even more (you won't regret it, I promise!
