‘The First Age (The Secret Histories, Book 1)’ by Arshad Ahsanuddin is the beginning of something quite riveting and extraordinarily enchanting. While Arshad’s other books have a strong science fiction feel to them this one seems to be more grounded in an earthly type of world. Elemental magic, spells, healing and magical warfare are key components in this tale. Arshad introduces us to a whole new group of captivating characters and invites us into newly imagined and well constructed worlds. From start to finish you will find yourself engaged and getting more and more absorbed into the story. The dialogue is quick paced the mood is atmospheric and fantastical. I am so looking forward to the further adventures of these characters and moving forward in this story.
Note: While each series conforms to standard conventions regarding the romance genre overall, Arshad does not guarantee an HEA or HFN ending to any individual book within the series.
From the back cover: Mikal despised the idea of working with an Imperial, for reasons both personal and political, but only the invaders’ magic could repair the artifact weapon that was the last link to a family he’d left behind. Rian was a magician by trade, trying to escape the obligations of his noble birth, and the life his family planned out for him. Living incognito at the border of Imperial territory, he found his solitude interrupted by a mysterious visitor with an impossible commission. Their meeting will set in motion a chain of events that will irrevocably alter everything they know of the world, and set their two civilizations on a course to ruin.
