Hello all,

Welcome to my very first blog book tour with “Neverland Blog Tours”.NBT banner idea jpeg

I would like to thank Neverland Blog Tours for providing me with a review copy of this book and give me the opportunity to review it.

I was not sure about this piece at first and then went from a 3 star to a 4 star gradually nearing the end, as more of the pieces to this puzzle of a book came together.

The author is a bit of what I would call a โ€œChameleon Writerโ€, and by this, hereโ€™s what I mean:

When you first read this book, you will come across what appears to be 4 very different storylines with no apparent connections:whenshadowfallspic

  • Horace the Sailor with a fierce obsession to protect his โ€œportholeโ€.
  • The Royals Teryk and Danya in search of new adventures.
  • Thorn who speaks to animals under the green veil.
  • Ailyssa devoted servant of the Goddess desperate to give her a new born daughter.

All those stories are told with such distinct voices and so well written that they could be standing alone in their own book; however the author manages to weave them in skillfully to become the start of a promising epic saga.

I am a fan of ancient history, so the mythical world created in this novel is something that I will really enjoy exploring in further installments.

I have a soft spot for the character Ailyssa and would love to see how she evolvesโ€ฆthat is, if she does.

One piece of criticism however will be that, because of the chosen structure to construct this world, it will be a slow start and I would advise any reader who picks this up to be patient and hang in there. Donโ€™t all good sagas start in that way?!
