Patrick Carr Launches a New Suspense-filled Fantasy Epic
When one man is brutally murdered and the priest he works for mortally wounded on the streets of Bunard, Willet Dura is called to investigate. Yet the clues to the crime lead to contradictions and questions without answers. As Willet begins to question the dying priest, the man pulls Willet close and screams in a foreign tongue. Then he dies without another word.
Willet returns to the city, no closer to answers than before, but his senses are skewed. People he touches appear to have a subtle shift, a twist seen at the edge of his vision, and it's as though he can see their deepest thoughts. In a world divided between haves and have-nots, gifted and common, Willet soon learns he's been passed the rarest gift of all: a gift that's not supposed to exist.
Now Willet must pursue the murderer still on the loose in Bunard even as he's pulled into a much more dangerous and epic conflict that threatens not only his city, but his entire world--a conflict that will force him to come to terms with his own tortured past if he wants to survive.
A fantasy novel filled with suspense and mystery!
The development of the characters is wonderful. There are a lot of intricacies in each of the main characters. Most of them comprise the group called The Vigil. Even very close to the end of the book I was learning new things about them. I really feel like there are still some unknown aspects to some of these individuals.
The storyline is incredible with lots of twists and turns throughout the book. I was rooting for Willet Dura to work out the problems and solve the mysteries. The journey he took was filled with questions, danger and heartache.
I received a free copy of this book through The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
