Lets just start this review of with “HURRY UP AND RELEASE THE SECOND BOOK” please.
We meet Daniel Welsh who is a quiet boy, gets bullied and is not well liked. Daniel just plods on with his life but knows he can do something more with it.
Little does he know that he has a special magical talent that is ready to come to the surface and unleash itself in this amazing YA fantasy book. Daniel is really smart and has a photographic memory. Which comes in handy throughout the book.
When Daniel is approached by Trinity his whole life is turned upside down. Daniel discovers things about his family and himself that he was never meant to find out. His family wanted him to have a boring human life. Which obviously wasn’t going to happen. Daniel goes on an amazing adventure which has been pleasantly written by the author.
It really does open your eyes and has your imagination going into over drive. To the point where you actually think you’re in the books itself. The characters and the world building are beautifully well written. The flow of the book is really good. I read the whole book in one go. I literally couldn’t put this book down. The pages were flowing nicely and I couldn’t seem to find a stopping point as I wanted to know what was going to happen with Daniel and friends.
There is so much more I want to write but this would be spoiling the reading experience for the reader. Which I’m not willing to do. Please read this book. You won’t be disappointed at all.
(Also I would like to get a physical copy as the cover is amazing)
Birth Of The Mortokai
Daniel Welsh was born different—and to Daniel, to be different means to be alone. But what if he’s wrong?
Born an albino with a photographic memory, Daniel Welsh never expected to fit in. Yet, when he is approached by Trinity—a young girl who definitely isn’t human—she reveals a whole new world where he might just belong. Ariest is a place where his features aren’t a disability or the mark of a freak, but rather a trait of powerful mages born of human-faerie unions. His father is a renowned war hero and swordsman, his mother is a human doctor, and that makes him a powerful mage that’ll tip the scales. Magic is real—and so is the threat it brings.
The Shade have awakened.
Enemies to the fae realm long thought dead have been lying in wait for their moment to strike. Young mages like Daniel are the perfect morsel for their starving appetites and they start their killing spree without delay with the nearest unsuspecting mage boy. Daniel cannot sit idly by while monsters take innocent lives, so he will embrace a destiny he is only just beginning to understand… even if it means losing a life that’s finally worth living.
