Review: I’ve never heard of this series before and after reading this prequel I just have to know what happened afterwards!

I love that the Author didn’t use excessive profanity, and there didn’t seem to be any romance or major focus on it. The “demons” in this book were really just Pokemons in that they’re used in fights and as companions. I found all the characters (except the bullies of course) likeable, my favorites have to be Elaine, Harold, Edmund, and of course Sacharian.

The plot was very entertaining and chock full of mysteries. This book was well written and fast paced. I couldn’t bring myself to put it down and I loved the fight scenes. I’ll definitely have to check out the rest of the series!

Now for my favorite quotes!

1. ‘You’ll only have one shot,” Rotter shouted, “so make it count.”

2. The next few hours could determine the future of the empire. And somehow, he was stuck in the middle of it.

3. “Crossbows,” Ulfr said. “Crossbows and confidence.”

4. Sometimes acting and the truth wrre closely intertwined.

5. Prince Harold smiled. It was a strange, unhinged smile, and there was madness in his eyes.

“We’re going to make me King,” he said.

6. Could you regret something if you’d been given no other choice? Arcturus thought so.

7. “You’re safe now,” Arcturus breathed, holding them close. He had never felt so happy.

Because after all the loss, all the suffering and bloodshed, he finally had what he’d always wanted. A family.


Rating: 4.5 Stars

Recommendation: For fans of Pokemon and harry Potter ages 10 & up
