Treachery and deceit run rampant in the kingdom of Donegal.
A high stakes game of life and death erupts in a land of murder and manipulation. A single event sets off a series of consequences to be faced around the world.
Some seek a throne, but most hunt the elusive Pearl of Wisdom for its magical powers and ability to summon dragons.
The story is told by multiple points of view that sweep you around a realm and beyond. The King’s son, a Queen, a Princess, members of rival families, several knights and a rogue warrior tell the tales of a lost kingdom, omitted from history.
Good versus evil can look transparent or blurred as motivations of revenge and soul-inspired redemption entangle in a forgotten world of deception and drama.
The first in the Pearl of Wisdom series.
I'm going to slate this book a Ya/ Na blend that feels likes its meant to be an adult book without really managing to gain more traction maturity wise.
The characters lacked in interest for me simply because there are so many of them in this book but the world itself does have an interesting potential to grab readers for more exploration in future installments.
I do want to mention that there are a lot of layers in this book, with the magical aspects, the history, the cast and the world there is a lot to take in. I get now why its a saga and not a series since there is so much going on with it.
