Review Inkpot | No Tour, reviews due within one month of receiving arc
Terrin sits on a throne he doesn’t want, having been forced to inherit a Kingdom when his brother banished their sister and killed their mother ten years prior.
In the past decade, Terrin has been using every mage left on earth to look for his sister, stuck inside an otherworldly realm. At every turn, they’ve come up short, exhausted and nothing to show for it. That is, until his best mage, Alec, disappears over a cliff and Terrin receives a divine prophecy about a key to unlock the realm…a key in the form of a beautiful and intriguing woman named Lyra.
Terrin must summon the patience it takes to train and work with Lyra, a fledgling mage with considerable power but little control–over her magic or her temper.
What he doesn’t expect is his maddening physical reaction to her, and the control it takes on his part to keep his feelings to himself, buried under his responsibility to his throne and consequently to his people.
Will Terrin be able to help Lyra unlock the realm for the good of his Kingdom and the world?
And will the unlocking of the realm open another cascade of evils far more sinister than they already battle?
