Ever since the dawn of days, rumors about the Diary of Lucifer echoed throughout Elysium. Hidden from all human knowledge, the Diary was kept a secret, locked away in the small village of Agalmath.
Isaac and Demetre find themselves in a dangerous journey as they uncover the truth about the Diary and its guardians. However, for Isaac and Demetre, danger lies at every step, hidden in the most unexpected places.
Hunted by the Nephilins and the Fallen Stars, they must find others who will join them in the battle against the coming darkness.
I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars
This book was amazing. I know I shouldn’t use that word when writing a book review but whatever. I typically don’t read books that take place in a time with castles, but this book had me hooked. I loved the supernatural element to the story. I really enjoyed the twists and turns in this story where you didn’t know what would happen next with the characters. I liked the fact that this book featured a non-damsel in distress female character, who yes, isn’t on team good, but I like that. I like reading books where the female characters don’t rely on the men to help/save them. I also enjoy stories where the characters start out as ordinary, and things begin to happen to them that helps them to see a different side to the world/themselves that they are used to. I cannot wait to read the second book in the series!!
