Publisher's Summary

Tur’Mor, capital of the Republic of Ordiatea and the center of the modern world, is a vast city-state by the sea where the haze of industry and the glisten of steel draws in people from across the continent of Ethrea.

At the heart of the Tur’Mor lies two governing authorities, that of the political figureheads and the holy council of the church of Ordan. However, beneath its cobbled streets and immense markets, a cancer sucks at the city-state, threatening to overturn the tinder balance of it all. Cults, thieves, assassins, and robbers lurk while the wealthy "uppers" leech off of the less fortunate.

Burdened with guilt and remorse for his failings, a forgotten warrior finds himself trapped between the looming walls of Tur’Mor and a mysterious call to find them. His only hope is to learn to trust. But in a city where secrets and betrayal are the common language, and propaganda is being issued from those who should be helping, he is left to figure things out on his own. Meanwhile, in the south end of Tur’Mor where the poor and desperate cling on to whatever meager belongings they can scavenge, a group of misfits has banded together, headed by the charismatic Felik, calling themselves "the Crew".

Diversity makes them unique, stronger than common street toughs of the south end. But when everyone has secrets, someone is bound to get hurt. Worlds collide as progress presses ever onward. Important realities are lost to history as the march to greater enlightenment tramples out the once sacred truths of the past. Magic and mystical creatures? Fairy tales used to scare children. Arcane artifacts? Folklore to distract citizens from their responsibilities. The church has verified this, and they do whatever it takes to ensure these facts. However, some of those darker truths should have never been allowed to be forgotten.

Great Characters and Interesting Plot

Overall, this was a fun read worth the credit spent. It is the author's first story, so I am taking that into account in my review. So, let's start with the good. I loved the characters, the way they are crafted, and their unique feel. Each character has their own voice and motivations, and that is nice. I always knew whose head I was in, despite the multi-POV story. My favorite was either Elcon or Aellia, both are unique takes on classic archetypes. The plot was okay, and while there were a few points where the story seemed to get bogged down *I'll talk in could improve* it was fun and had a solid payout at the end. As for parts that could have improved: Pacing, the author really likes being descriptive and that shows through wonderfully at times, but also can detract from the story at others. There is a lot of worldbuilding in this book, and it tries to tackle it in one go, and I am left feeling like some parts were over-explained and others underdeveloped. All in all, a good read with great characters in a unique setting for fantasy. It is NOT a medieval fantasy setting, which is a very nice breath of fresh air. 4.5/5 Stars if I could give it that.

A wonderful adventure

I read the book and absolutely loved it could not wait for the audiobook to come out. This book has it all, world building that you wouldn’t believe character development in adventure super powers and the author explores all different layers of social interactions with religion, poverty, affluent and many other respects. This book has it all
