Then there was the actual book to consider. As with everything the Wilders write, it was fantastic. The language was so descriptive. The story of the nephilim was fascinating. And the complicated love story seemed real to me, even though it was fiction. Love is messy. Maybe not Japheth and Aresia messy, but I liked how their relationship evolved and changed. I didn't find myself missing the steam factor that most Wilder books are laced with.
We need more! Don't leave Aresia and the rest of us hanging!
Desperate to see some relieve from the pain and suffering, Aresia and her servant Irkalla would travel outside the walls of the kingdom to explore the village around the walls of the palace. Each trip would be carried out in disguise so that no one would know Aresia’s true identity. There were many that hated her father, and that hatred brought on unwanted attention. These excursions were a brief escape from the horrors that existed within the confines of Aresia’s home.
During one of Aresia’s trips to the village, she came upon a human that she couldn’t seem to draw her gaze away from. His looks captivated the Nephilim princess, regardless of the hatred that her father harbored for humans. The intensity of that meeting with Japheth would stay with Aresia long after that fateful night. Driving the princess to take extreme risks to see the human that haunts her thoughts each and every moment they aren’t together.
As fate would have it, Aresia’s father would discover their romance. Japheth was to be shown no mercy at the hands of the Nephilim King. Aresia knew the fate that her father would delve upon this human that captured her heart. With his life at stake, Aresia offered her father an exchange that would forever alter the life of Japheth and herself. A journey that was filled with torture, sorrow, and a heartache that they would never forget. Their love would fuel them to find their way toward each other again.
Fate is not always kind, and Japheth turned back to his family for solace from the harm that they faced. Aresia quickly discovered the reason that Japheth turned his back on Noah and his adoration to God. The building of the ARK was underway, and the fate of all humanity was heard through Noah’s ears. As the couple spent their days helping to build the ARK, Aresia and Japheth questioned their place in the world. Their time was quickly running out, and the moment the ARK would be afloat would change the course of the world. The only question was how would their love for one another end with the coming of the floods?
Wow…..I mean seriously!!! When the Wilders announced the release of ARK, I knew that it would be unlike anything we had read from the authors before. Knowing this fantasy novel was inspired by the creation of the ARK in biblical times, yet would be a venture into the world of fiction and fantasy, I knew I had to read this creation.
Let me start by saying….I stayed up all night until I finished this book. What an amazing world that exists between the covers. Each character adding another dimension to the details, plot, and creativity that lies within this unique romance. The complexity that was used to bring such vivid detail to a story we all know, it turned completely on its head with this alter creation from the couple.
Seriously - I hate to delve into too much detail. I feel like if I do, it will spoil a part of the journey for you. There are moments of suffering and pain that will haunt you as you uncover it. Then there are the moments in which you realize the love of a forbidden romance is a force to be reckoned with. A love that leads you to fight against the odds. It is beautiful and thought provoking.
The Wilders certainly took a topic as old as time, and put the most amazing spin on it!! There is certainly more to this tale that needs to be written, and I hope that another book is in the works. ARK is truly a work of ingenuity that you must read!!
