I thoroughly enjoyed this unusual conceptual fantasy novel. The author demonstrates his proficient ability to write an exceptional story beginning with the prologue. Comparable to an artist whom creates a picture with paints on canvas, he paints a vivid picture with words emulating a malevolent storm which culminates into the first glimpse of the impending evil to come.

On another planet the ultimate evil reincarnated, Myriah, is a sorceress of unlimited abilities coupled with an unquenchable thirst for absolute power. She has no compassion or empathy and enjoys inflicting terror derived from her disdain for humans in general. Myriah treats her own commanders and armies as pawns in a personal war to conquer and crush her planet. She even possesses the power to change the fabric of time and space to conjure from earth Islena Doraux.

She needs this special woman to procure what all of Myriah's powers can not achieve which is to possess three icons to complete her mission of total conquest of her planet and every other inhabited planet that exists. In part Islena's dark side and deep seeded fury is needed to aid the sorceress since the one task she can never achieve is to obtain these icons by her own accord. The dark side of this woman mirrors Myriah's which could help the tyrant to obtain her ultimate goal.

Islena is forced from earth to a war stricken planet and is subjected to starvation, torture, fleeing for her life and other treacherous obstacles she must overcome. Will Islena with her undaunted defiant attitude bend and pledge fealty to the High Queen despite her best efforts not to?

I recommend this novel to any fantasy fan and I am positive the novel would not disappoint.
