A dazzling, solid tale… Genuine page turner…
Westgate’s immersive second in The Baku Series moves at a steady clip, thrusting Xlina into a whirlwind of deceit and betrayal as she sets on to reclaim Amber’s soul from Hell. Amber is dead, and the only way Xlina can free her from an eternity of torment at the hands of Ertigan, is to accept Oxivius’s plan to steal Amber’s soul from Hell. But with forces of Heaven and Hell joining together to stop her from performing resurrection, Xlina knows she must tread carefully. Finely constructed and exceptionally well thought out, the taut plot is steeped in betrayal, lies, sinister conspiracies, and intrigue. There are healthy doses of action, dark magic, and emotional epiphany. Loyalties shift, with the deep, dark river of ambition and greed ruining lives. Tensions between the old allies and the new enemies supply plenty of drama. The vivid narrative moves briskly and features a superb climax that resolves all the main issues while leaving enough to raise readers’ fervor for the next installment. This mesmerizing tale makes for a winner.
