Short Story: The First King
Author: C.S. Marks
NTRODUCING The first in the Alterra Histories series of NOVELLAS. From the creator of the beloved ELFHUNTER Series comes a tale of fate and faith, of the perils of pride, and of the power of love itself — as a King is forced to confront that which he has long denied–that which is in us all. The Shadow has come to Alterra: a force of such power and terror that none may stand against it. It has but one purpose: to lure Aincor to his doom.
I was so drawn into this short story, I can't wait to read more of these characters and from this author. The way the author showcases her characters and how you jump right into the action is perfect for a short story.
While reading The Fire King by C.S. Marks, I couldn't wait to turn each and every page just to find out what was going to happen next. I was drawn into the world this amazing author created insistently.
Each character are easy to connect with and root for. I would recommend this book to any of my Fantasy loving friends.
I would give The Fire King an Ali's Bookshelf
