Two ancient souls are connected by a promised love, their destinies placing the fate of the world in their hands. Borne through the ages by tortured longing, their paths yet cross at the dawn of a terrifying new age. For thousands of years, the Dark Lord has been devising a plan to reawaken the God of War. With the God of War's power he intends to cleanse the world...by plunging it into darkness. The only hope for humankind is the love of Kendrick and Princess Natalia, a love that has endured the test of time. They must fight an evil that has resurfaced to threaten the world...and threaten their life together. The epic battle between good and evil, set against the backdrop of Kendrick and Natalia's story of enduring love, climaxes in a confrontation that could change the world forever.

Ugh. I DNF’d this rather quickly as this seemed like a prime example of telling instead of showing. I kept waiting for the story to start, but instead, all I was getting was back story and asides. Without a clear plot or direction, this just felt aimless and painful.

The narration itself was okay, with voices that seemed engaged and appropriate, but without a decent story, it wasn’t worth listening to.

  1. Sorry you didn’t have a good experience with the book. It’s not my usual fare. However, I do appreciate that you mentioned the things you liked about it as well as the things which were disappointing. That’s classy, IMO.

    • Thanks. I try to share positives and negatives since it helps make my review seem more objective. Plus, maybe what I think of as negative, someone else will like. I’ve picked up books due to other reviews’ negative points before.
