Warrior’s Watchtower: Vengelys Book II (Vengelys Series 2)
By Aedan Byrnes
Science Fiction, Fantasy Romance
“I am yours and you are mine…Whatever comes now, we are one.”
Her heroes are gone, taken together in a flash by a vengeful God leaving Jondre to find her way alone. Befriended by a woman who knows more than she’s telling, she makes a choice to try to help what’s left of her family and finds herself at the seat of power but also the center of the expanding abyss. Her world is nothing that it seemed.
A Eupion raid near the boundary delivers a surprise to High House, a new tragedy to deal with and the catalyst for an even more difficult future to come. Just when she thinks there cannot be more, she sees the most fearsome immortal she’s ever encountered, and as match-mates are revealed, this one is hers. Nothing is simple anymore.
Through the oracles mist/ Warriors Watchtower
I wasn’t sure what to make of this at first, this is different to what I normally read.
Aeden Byrne’s has done a wonderful job of creating this world and I could really invision the characters and what was happening. I loved how each chapter started with the pov of a character.
In book one the seven Vengelys brothers get banished at which point Cryenna discover that one of them was her match-mate and she asked to be banished to go and be with him. But it came at a great price. She strikes a deal with the Oracle that gives her multiple life’s with her love but she is not able to tell him who she is or her story, he must love her first.
The story draws you in as you watch Cryenna go through a thousand lives for love and I can’t wait to find out more about their love story.
Warriors watchtower picks right up where book one ends, and we see what the effect of the brothers banishment has on rest of Vengelys family. This book didn’t follow the same format of knowing who was “speaking” at the beginning of each chapter like book one did – and I found it confusing sometimes as to who it was.
This is told from the perspective of Jondre and a few other characters we meet in book one,which is great to learn more about them.
The whole series so far has go me hooked and as I said Aeden Byrns has done a great job of creating this world of the gods.
Loved it and can’t wait to read more
About Aedan Byrnes
There is no simple description for Aedan Byrnes. Obsessive, dreamer, reclusive, compulsive, outdoorsman and wordsmith would be among the list if one were started. The displaced Gael lives in the upper Midwest with family between jaunts wherever the road goes. A frequent traveler, Aedan is as likely to be found rock climbing, spelunking, sitting fireside dreaming or aimlessly floating away as hiding with pen and paper working on the next tale.
A lifelong lover of words and writing, Aedan claims a diverse reading appetite and the writing reflects the myriad influences. A self-proclaimed ‘reader’s writer’, the emotional and sensory results of word combinations outweigh the visceral comprehension of phrases for the stories and drives the prose. The original ‘Eclectic Bard’ enjoys the special magick of storytelling, those who embrace the challenge of writing, and the dreamers who get whisked away by the words making the journey worth taking.
