The Sector collapses and the supernatural chase intensifies as Haven fights to defeat the earth's ultimate beast before the timely end of the eclipse, entering into the new millennium peace reign.
In this final installment, our heroine, Haven Silktin, has to unite all of her resources to outwit her father if she is to take down the sector alone, leaving Ben questioning, in the light of unconfirmed evidence, if Haven really is his daughter.
Knowing the fulfillment of the prophecy is not complete, Haven receives an inner call and is drawn back to Hadji's hidden lair. She discovers a secret chamber, revealing a new world with an all too familiar treasure guardian at the controls, who must be stopped.
As twisted dreams unfold, a forecasted eclipse reveals itself as a new prophecy, and with it, a threat to destroy Haven's existence. Is the team prepared to defeat the supernatural beast that continues to track her down and hold the reign of peace hostage? With newly discovered jewels, and an unlimited power of imaging, strategies and soldiers are tested to their limits, pointing Haven to finally fulfill her destined prophecy and become the supernatural soldier she was born to be.
Kataztro, the Hidden Zayphra by Gail Parker
Oh My Goodness! I have read this twice now! LOVED IT! Definitely take a look at this series!
The answers to survival for Earth may lie in a hidden cavern in a remote area, where evil prepares for its final battle against Haven and her allies. Supernatural against supernatural, heroes will die, loyalties will be tested and Haven will learn the power of the mind to bend the outcome as she discovers where truths lie and deceit can easily become a trickster.
Gail Parker took an idea of a girl, created to be the smartest supernatural being in existence and dumped her in the middle of turmoil that roils like a tsunami building to proportions that are more powerful than a nuclear explosion. Next she gave her powers unheard of, a dysfunctional family, love, loss, fear and self-doubt, covered by an over-abundance of outward self-confidence. Haven is forced to grow up, learn to sacrifice, protect and expect the unexpected.
Haven has grown tremendously throughout this series and never does it show like it does in this finale.
Each book in this series has been a nail-biter, filled with action and conflict, but always with the resolution just out of reach. KATAZTRO is that final resolution with the weight of humanity’s very existence ultimately on Haven’s shoulders. Her faith in those around her will be tested and some may fail, but the prophecy is coming to its final fulfillment and the stakes couldn’t be higher.
If you are looking for that science fiction read that melds humanity’s flaws, greed, betrayal and its strong points of love, loyalty and the will to survive, Hidden12Saga is that series and KATAZTRO is the grande finale that makes every reader sit back and say, “Yes, this is THAT book I couldn’t put down!”
I received a complimentary ARC edition from Gail Parker!
