The Empire of Andresium is threatened by the corruption of the immortals, ancient beings given the gift of eternal life after the death of the last reigning empress. A prophecy speaks of their eventual downfall at the hands of one of their own, however. Tallis is known by most simply as "The Loren," and seeks to avoid her destiny while trying herself to remain untainted by the decaying morals and indifference to the fates of men that plague her kind. As the events of the prophecy begin to unfold, Tallis finds herself conflicted between upholding her dedication to justice, and falling victim to the ramifications of following the desires of her own heart.
A huge Thank You to YA Bound for allowing me to be a part of this tour and reading this book. I have to say at first when I started reading it I was hooked into a world I have not read before. The description of the world had me drawn in. I have to say I have never really read a book like this but I am so happy I did. I will say this the book was short! Lord I was reading and reading and then it was done and I screamed WHAT THE HECK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need more ASAP! This book is so hard to review without be spoilerish so I will leave this review off with a quote from the book.
"The peaceful solemnity belied the chaos that would soon ensue. Such
are mornings at a facility of learning: hand-rubbed eyes, laden with the
dust of sleep, late hours kept in pursuit of knowledge. With the sun, the
purpose of pursuit is born anew. The world remakes itself once more,
pushing away all that happened on its last visit. The day is a newly hatched
egg, its surface smooth and white. The bell of the tower rings, the rooster
calls, the egg cracks. All must rise, all must to their duties keep. Each pupil
must pull his share."
Doesn't this scream READ ME....... READ ME........
