Two souls from different realms. Bound by sacrifice. Torn by fate.

 

For eleven years, Sumrects have trapped humans in an alternate realm where an ancient evil brews, awaiting its nemesis…

 

A nineteen-year-old human stands in the way, but she does not know it yet…

 

Dawn has more pressing matters at hand.

 

Competition to be Portrait Artist at Crimson Estate is fierce. One hour to paint. One lives. One dies. And participation is not voluntary.

 

To save her brother’s life, Dawn ensures her own execution by painting a magical device the Sumrects despise—the Eye of Elektron. Banned from use, the Eye of Elektron has not functioned since the failed human rebellion against Sumrectian tyranny eleven years ago.

 

Somehow, it comes to life in her hands...



Review


4-4,5 stars


This is definitely a unique story . I find the magical system refreshing .

It’s fast paced and addictive from the beginning to the end. Its fascinating and it’s a mix of sci-fi and fantasy like nothing else. It has great characters and interesting plot.

Dawn is such a badass heroine, I loved her. Ansel too, he is super smart. Both where fantastic.


If you are looking for something different and refreshing this is definitely for you.

Excerpt :

Dawn knew death awaited her at the hour’s end. She understood the rules well. One hour. Two painters. The weaker painter disposed of, the other appointed as Portrait Artist of Crimson Estate.
“You are the better painter,” her brother admitted.
But Dawn’s mind raced as she waited before the mahogany double doors.
She promised her parents the night they left that she would take care of Henry. She kept her promise for the past eleven years, and she was not about to break it now.
“I won’t let them sacrifice you, Henry.”
“Dawn… Please don’t do anything stupid. I’m ready. Really.”
Don’t be silly. You are coming out of this alive.
Dawn swallowed the lump in her throat and blinked away the fear in her eyes. No Sumrect was going to take away her last remaining family member in Fors.
Not today.
“I have a plan.”
“No—” Henry began, but the mahogany doors swung open.
“Ah, our painters have indeed arrived.” An eerie, cold voice bounced off the high vaulted ceiling.
Hand in hand, the Rene siblings entered to meet their fate.
Two easels stood back to back at the center of a partially mirrored, partially curtained, octagonal room. Thirty feet away, near a freestanding fireplace, sat two young, well-dressed male Sumrects and a bedizened female. The one closer to the fireplace beckoned the siblings forward, his nostrils flaring above a stiff smile. Dawn, from a year of answering to his commands, gritted her teeth at the sound of that familiar nasal voice. Atma was his official title, Vance, his name. Blonde and honey-eyed, he never appeared in anything but gold: golden ties, golden jewelry, golden suits and golden boots. Once, Dawn even caught him sunbathing in gold dust.
She could attest there was nothing golden about his heart or spirit.
For the past eleven years, Vance had breathed nothing but misery and destruction into every life-containing vessel in Fors.
