Army of the Cursed by Karim Soliman
(War of the Last Day, #1)
Once again, Karim Soliman took me on an incredible journey and I am ALMOST speechless at his ability to make a bold leap from one series and spinoff another just as intense, involved and passionate.
ARMY OF THE CURSED builds on the past, the fallen heroes, the legends and the events that took place in the Tales of Gorania series. Years have passed and an epic war is on the horizon, one that cannot be won, unless three teens can bring their armies together, discover the secrets of the past and try not to repeat the failures of their ancestors.
Boldly written, rich in detail and filled with characters that seem to actually breathe as they leap off the pages in a world where magic, betrayals and fear of the unknown loom ominously all around.
Karim Soliman introduces each main character, their backgrounds and their missions, bringing them together in a shocking conclusion that I really did NOT see coming! Fierce battles, loyalties and political machinations bring and edgy, urgent feel to this tale that is non-stop from start to finish!
I received a complimentary ARC edition from Karim Soliman! This is my honest and voluntary review.
