The King family was killed on their throne when Raphael attacked the Caribbean, looking for the location of the boy of the prophecy.
During the battle they sent Noryad, their fourth and strongest son, through a portal to the Guild Never Too Late, but not before he watched how his brothers and sister were killed in front of his eyes. As the portal closed he heard Raphael say to him, “I will look for you when you are older. You cannot hide forever.”
Now 24 years old, Noryad is forced to leave the Guild he dedicated his life to because his powers are getting out of control, but his departure happened for another reason too. His parents left him a mission for when his powers got to be too much to deal with.
Go my son. Reclaim what is yours by right. Look for the Sword of Kings, the one our ancestors used during their leadership. Make our army of the dead comeback to life. Make the King of Camelot kneel before you and recognize you as his descendant.
Noryad, left with no other choice but to return to the place that has many dark memories for him, goes through a portal and into the unknown to look for something he’s never heard of.
He must learn to control his powers as he faces something sinister waiting for him in his Kingdom, and the Demon he hates the most.
Will Noryad be able to control his powers, find the sword his parents were talking about and make them proud of him? Or will he be too consumed by his revenge to claim his inheritance and lose all that he holds dear.
This is the second book in the Lost City Series. With the first book's cliffhanging ending, I was already looking forward to this one. The storytelling in this book was well written, much better than the first one. The descriptions were more vivid, the characters well rounded, and there was just enough backstory to wet the appetite for what the story was about to bring.
The beginning of this book was nothing like I thought it would be. It did not continue where book 1 left off. It began with the tale and legend of King Arthur (one of my favorites). I won't give much away, because the more you read this one the more you will want to dive deeper into the story. My only criticism was that the ending left me wanting more of the battle and less of the set up for the next book.
Make sure you get this exciting book from D.L. Colon on Amazon.com
