Nancy Holland recently began to live her dream as a full-time writer. After being a finalist in the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart© contest and publishing two short contemporary romances, she is thrilled to return to her first love and write fantasy novels for Tule Publishing. Despite dark pasts, heart-breaking betrayal, and a future that is always at risk, her fantasy heroes and heroines accomplish amazing feats of valor and magic to create a better world for everyone. More importantly, her characters refuse to give up on themselves, struggle to improve their lives, and learn to trust each other. After years spent studying and writing about words written long ago and far away, she loves to travel with her husband to explore the cities where she can feel the lived experience behind the words.
A haunting mixture between love and hate, death and life, hope and despair, witch and warrior. I found each page to be a chance for the battles both personal and war to win or lose and never knowing which way the story would go. I was on edge throughout the entire book just wondering how it could ever work out. I would never have given the chances to Thalgore that Erwyn did because he was absolutely cruel at times. I felt bad for Thalgore because he struggled with his feelings about witches and Erwyn; it was an internal battle Thalgore had to overcome if he were to ever find happiness. The writing of Ms. Holland offers an alternative view of a paranormal story while offering a world from the past which seems so real.
