Lusa was the last of her kind, a Dark Mage. during her journey in search of her missing mother, she found a temple filled with dead mages, and getting careless on the road ended her in the hands of a bounty hunter named Kaden. as much as she wanted to do good, her dark magic constantly fought against her for control. she was led to Izier, a kingdom cursed with magic cast by the powerful Lazorious, whom she found herself fighting against soon later. what she did not anticipated for her journey, was falling for Kaden, the most likely person to trade her for a reward instead of saving her like he seemed to be doing.
i received a free e-book from the author in exchanged for a review. the book was an absolutely fast read. it took me by surprise on how much i enjoyed the journey Lusa had with Kaden. it was seemingly straightforward yet filled with so much details that i grew to love the duo in no time. as annoying as Lusa's dark magic was, it was also the most delicious twist throughout the book. without it, there would only be adventure and romance, which would be far less alluring and unique in comparison. i was pleased to find myself getting absorbed into the story and looking forward to the coming sequel.
