The dark unknown beckons.
Rune Jenkins has a long-standing infatuation with anything from the supernatural world, and she’s trying to hide it. If she doesn’t, she angers her reckless twin brother Ryker, and starts feeling like her own sanity is slipping. But the closer she gets to Grey Malteer – an old friend who waves his fascination with fantasy like a flag – the harder it becomes to stifle her own interest.
The supernatural suddenly invades their reality when other-worldly creatures come hunting for the three college students. With help from a mysterious savior Rune and Grey escape, but must follow Ryker’s abductors into an alternate dimension, Eon, and discover their true identities. They are Venators, descendants of genetically enhanced protectors and sentries between Eon and Earth. In this world of fae, vampires, werewolves, and wizards, power is abundant and always in flux. Ryker is missing, and Rune and Grey are being set up as pawns in a very dangerous game. The three must find their way through – and out of – Eon, before it consumes them.
I’m sure a lot of readers can relate to the act of trying not to bore their friends and families with their latest obsession, and no time is that more apparent when that obsession happens to be supernatural things – this is something which seems to divide more people than Marmite (hater, if case you’re wondering…sorry Marmite).
This was nicely written and was easy to follow without being too boring. It has a good pace and explains things well without bordering on patronising the reader. There was a lot of mystery and a relatively complicated plot woven in a way which makes it accessible to even the most novice of fantasy readers.
I would like to see more from this author in the future, as I feel this was a very nice introduction to Devri’s work. I would definitely like to follow these characters again too, as I found them very likeable and easy to understand.
