Breaking the tenets of Special Forces means one thing. Death.


Thorrn has his life mapped out – be the best swordsman in the king’s army and become Captain one day. What doesn’t fit in with his plans is some short, unimpressive waif claiming to be his soul companion.


Evyn cannot quite believe that this world of Oberrot is real, but grey grass is hard to fake. To expose her true origins risks all-out war with the magical community that covets her blood.


But when the king demands that he hand Evyn over, Thorrn is confronted with a choice: protect Evyn and keep her secret from the magical community who would drain her for the power resonating inside her, or turn her over to save his career, family name and reputation.


When a powerful mage moves against the kingdom, Thorrn and Evyn will have to summon all their courage. But they find allies from unexpected corners – including different worlds and times. For alongside the realms of Oberrot and Earth are the multiverses, and one of them should surely be able to help...


A swordsman, an apothecarist, a shy librarian (“I’m beginning to think being underestimated is kind of my superpower”), and a powerful mage. Only they can save the kingdom.


A page-turning new adventure awaits, from a fresh voice in fantasy. Contains twinned souls with a twist, enemies to inseparable friends, coming of age, learning to accept yourself and others, some epic swordfights, and a smattering of romance.



4 STARS "Other people's choices are not my fault. It's how I react to those choices that matters." This was really interesting , the first chapters intrigued me.This book follows Thorrn, he is part of the royal guard . Everyone is destined to meet their soul companion, and when he meets his, he is not happy with who she is!She is an Earthian who can travel between the two realms. How fascinated right? I enjoyed the magic system and the world building.It was very well written, and I enjoyed the characters.It was a little bit slow in some parts and confusing , but it has a lot of action and it's unique to keep your interest.Thorrn was inetresting even though in the beginning I didn't like how he treated Evyn I loved him later so much.Evyn was such a lovely character.There are also funny moments and especially the fact that Thorrn struggling with modern gadgets. "When something is broken, it can be reforged into something new. If you add new materials, it becomes stronger."
