Secrets of Neverak (A Tale of Light and Shadow), Jacob Gowans, Book Review
Henry Vestin believed that despite being only a carpenter he could lead Isabelle and their friends to safety. He thought he could defy an emperor and protect Isabelle from harm. He was certain that love and friendship would be enough to survive.
He was wrong.
The Secrets of Neverak follows Henry and his friends after the disastrous battle at the Iron Pass. Horrors await them in strange new lands. Crippled and broken, Henry must rely on his friends more than ever. Allies and foes find them at every turn, but which are friendly and which are deadly? Isabelle, now a slave in Neverak, finds herself surrounded by enemies, uncertain about the fate of her friends, and desperate to escape. The Emperor moves forward with his plans of conquest, spurred on by the Seer's dark prophecy, but he has not forgotten those who defied him.
Return to the world of Atolas, where a blade can extend life or end it, where friendships can topple kingdoms, and where the Path of Light and Shadow is feared by all but a few.
If you are a fan of epic/high fantasy then you will enjoy Secrets of Neverak. It is a great story with a lot going on and there are a lot of details to pay attention to! This was definitely not a quick or easy read for me, but I attribute that to the fact that I am not a huge high fantasy person. If you love this genre then definitely go pick it up! You will enjoy the new lands, the characters and the fight!
You can pick up your own copy via Amazon.
