About the book:
When a photo shoot ends in tragedy, Kira discovers her best friend, Lydia, has been keeping a secret. Knowing the truth, and accepting it, will change Kira’s life forever and thrust her into a world of ancient curses, magical objects, and savage enemies. What happens next will challenge everything Kira knows about her world, herself and the shape-shifting warrior she’s falling in love with. No longer the timid mouse her mother accused her of being, but a woman who finds the mental and physical strength to endure and survive.
C.K. Bryant offers a debuting series that combines mythological and supernatural elements that create a intricate and fresh world. Kira and Lydia are best friends with normal thought and concerns consistent with every other senior. Or so Kira thought until she discovered her best friend and brother are not from this world or human. Dedication and loyalty are in abundance throughout this book, and it is easy to see why these three friends are willing to risk there own lives for one another. The stage is excellently set for Kira to fit into Octavion and Lydia’s world. It also make is easy to understand Kira’s desperation to support and help them in there quest. Ophera was carefully crafted and easily imaginable. I had no problem seeing this world as though I was looking through the eyes of the characters. Ms. Bryant is a dedicated writer that will test your shock ability with her graphic novel. She will take her story that a cliff, and proceed without hesitation as her story drops readers from the deadly heights. I was very impressed with this novel, and the ability of this author. I definitely look forward to reading more from this series.
