Crown of the Sundered Empire
Oct 11, 2019
A very intricate tale in the Tivara series full of adventure, great sword fights, magic and magical artefacts, backstabbing traitors, and a wonderful cast of characters who are all thrown together through the desperate pacts of forced marriages of the respective royals. Prince Elrayn wanted to unite the nations of Serikoth and Tarkoth, a noble goal in itself as these had once been a unified empire, however he was using underhanded measures to reach this goal. He might also have been plotting all these manoeuvres just to secure power for himself, and now these only resulted in a war looming on the horizon. The Empire needed to become whole once again if they ever were to survive the Bovyan’s taking command of their land and enslaving their people especially their women, however forcing their Princes into marrying one another was not going to gain anyone’s trust. I particularly loved reading about the very courageous young boy, Tomas who struggled so hard to save the girl he loved and the people on the island he came from against all odds. I also loved Alaena for being more than a simpering princess, and Aryn for being more than a Prince and for loving Jie, and of course Keryn for loving his beautiful Cavalier. As usual Jie, is brilliant in what she does best, and this time Fleet joins in on the action. The world building in this story and interweaving strands to form the whole picture are awesome. This is a story that just needs to be read.
