Summary of the Book:
The empire is full of unrest.
Talise is ready to accept her new leadership roles but isn’t sure how. It doesn’t help that the emperor wants to take out enemy bases, yet he remains oblivious to the other conflicts around them.
The aristocratic citizens of the Crown are angry at the emperor for lying about their enemy. The middle-class citizens of the Gate are angry at the state of their once great empire. And the poor, desperate citizens of the Storm are beginning to awake after years of oppression.
Problems multiply when the enemy obtains knowledge about a mysterious amulet that has the power to destroy armies. With her heart still in pieces, Talise struggles to meet the obstacles ahead. But the truth soon becomes clear.
If she can’t gain back loyalty from the citizens and find the ancient amulet, the empire will be lost forever.
The book includes novellas 5-8 of The Elements of Kamdaria:
River Gate, Smoke Gate, Vine Gate, and Ember Gate
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This gave me a better look into the world and its problems. Also I got to know some of the other characters outside the main ones. The deeper I get into the world the more I understand the hardships of the characters. Talise is trying to settle into her new role while deal with the backlash of the emperor’s lies. She deal with some heartache as well. She on a mission to find a lost amulet that could save the empire. There are so many twists and turns that not sure what is to come next.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
