Four icrathari, immortal winged beings, rule over a domed city inhabited byvampires and humans. But while vampires are helping to defend the city and protect those living in, humans are considering both vampires and icrathari to be demons, night terrors, using them as food and prey. Unaware of the apocalypse behind the glass of dome, they linger in hate and fear, lacking the knowledge of true danger - extinction after being exposed to the murderous sunlight outside, or falling victim to the attack of daeva's. Ashra, the city ruler, lost her lover thousand years ago, but his soul has been reborn - into a human vessel. Now she and Jaden have to find the way to each other, grasping the thread of love connecting them over centuries and protect those who need protection.
At first, I thought I won't finish the book. I urged the book mentallz to speed up as I wanted to know more and find a connection to the story. I passed nearly the first third of the story this way, sure I won't give it more than three stars. But then it really started to be interesting, and I sunk deep into the story. As the plot developed, I got to know the characters more, and as they developed, too, I began to understand them and eventually became fond of them all. In the end, I was wolfing down the remaining pages, sad I had to stop reading because the book was over. Nice plot, great characters, fine writing, lots of suspense, action and the difficult romance between Jaden and Ashra made the cherry on top. Verz good read, and I am glad I did not give up entirely.
I was given a copy via AXP read and review program, and I voluntarily provide my honest opinion.
The humans of Aeternae Noctis live in fear of the culling at the full moon each month as the Icrathari gather a majority of the children barely aged 5 years and whisk them away to the Tower never to return. No explanations have been given for 1000 years, but human rebellions are quelled and any adult taken by the Icrathari is turned into a vampire to serve in the city. Now one human, Jaden, has been born with the reincarnated soul of Rohkeus, the long dead lover of Ashra, the Icrathari queen. He is fated to protect his young half sister who is prophesied to one day end the Eternal Night but she is chosen during the culling. Will he choose to free his sister and lead the fight for the freedom of the humans from the oppressive reign of the Icrathari? Or will he follow his misunderstood dreams of Ashra and try to rediscover his connection to the Icrathari? Fate and Vision will war for his mind.
Give this book a chance to build unexpected hope among extraordinary despair in a world where vampires and their Icrathari progenitors can be the salvation or the doom of the human race.
Positives- The writing is smooth and polished- the editing is perfect- the story is well told, researched and executed. Really, this is professionally perfect.
I look forward to any and all sequels to what promises to be a classic, in scifi, post-apocalyptic fiction.
Well done! 5 stars!
