This is the 3rd book in the series the Heart of the Citadel by Susan Faw and in this book the Heart of Shadra I was captivated from the very first page, which is the dedication page of the book, and by what Ms Faw wrote she had already won me over. Thank you Susan for writing this, it is a great introduction to what turned out to be yet another amazing book.

Shikoba has returned to Shadra in order to bring down the barrier. In the process she meets Marsai (The Shamankas) The protector of the realm, a man from another realm who she is not sure she trusts, and two teens who see her as someone to be worshiped.

In their search for the power source of the barrier, they encounter creatures of legend, men who are enslaving the peoples of two different lands, and Madrid, The Emperor who has his own plans for everyone.

This is another well told fast paced st

The story was engaging and moved right along. There were not any slow parts.
There were several storylines winding in and out throughout the book. Characters are introduced in a way that they are able to weave in and out of the story to give it substance.
This story does contain a cliffhanger ending.
I recommend this book.

Holy smokes! Things are amping up and I would LOVE to see the horrible emperor have his defeat in the most demeaning way. He is truly vile. I can’t wait to see how his plays out! Mesmerizing and engaging!

Took me a while to finish this but it was a very intense magical tale. The 3rd in the series with an evil Emperor. I really detested this evil character. Such is the story telling skills of Susan Faw. This definitely left me hungry for more .

A lover of unusual worlds, Susan is a masked crusader for the fantastical world. Championing mythical rights, she quells uprisings and battles infidels who would slay the lifeblood of her pen. It’s all in a night’s work, for this whirlwind writer. Welcome to the quest.
