Grimnir Vafthrudnir can’t believe what’s happened to the earth. With humans covering so much of it up with stone and concrete, they were slowly killing it. Unless he could find the Maiden of Earth and Water, there didn’t look like much chance of saving the planet. It didn’t take him long after arriving to feel that the magic that was so abundant many years previously, had now almost disappeared. Even though Cam was an Elf, he would have been quite happy to be left alone and drink himself to oblivion like the humans around him. However, his father insists on him getting his act together and helping Grimnir in his quest to save the earth. Sam did what he thought was the right thing when he heard someone in distress and came to their aid. Of course, he didn’t expect to be attacked himself. Sure, he had been drinking, but what he witnessed that night surely couldn’t be something real. Things like that didn’t happen in real life. Little did he know that his world was about to change. Cu Rui making a sudden appearance on earth is certainly going to disrupt things. He has a totally different agenda to Grimnir, and it’s more along the lines of creating havoc and mayhem to take over. This is an incredible story and is easily worth the 5/5 Star Rating.
It's got violence, the guts and glory type. Great descriptions without being sickly. It has an awesome plot that sucks you in even though I feel sorry for the side characters that are introduced only to be killed off so quickly. Poor Tabitha, her existence of eternal reincarnation, I am glad she was oblivious to this fact. For Jessica, the on-duty police officer that finally realizes she needs a life, she gets to drive a Lamborghini..... I'll leave that one for you to read about.
Then, of course, you have the bad guys. Mostly Elfin, Immortal, and Demon breeds but you love to hate them. Cu Roi, is the main bad guy. He believes himself to be a demon-like god. The Miracle Child, born of two factions Elfin races that should never be anything but enemies. He should just learn to stay dead. That's my opinion.
Anyway, I cannot wait for the next installment, either a sequel or a spinoff from this book. Sooner the better.

This book has stayed with me, in a good way. Books that I can remember for a long time afterwards are few.
This is a cross between Underworld, LOTR with touches of Highlander.
It takes you on several nailbiting journies, through modern day Manchester to mysterious realms.
Every time I put it down I would be twitching to go back to it, but it was so horrific in parts that I was sometimes scared to(in a good way).
This is not a genre I would usually add to my reads, but I'm so glad i made the exception.
There is a big battle between mortals and creatures that all have plots and stories to tell. I was disappointed in how many characters were introduced in the story, but not further developed into a richer, much more detailed storyline. Personally, I think that this book had so much potential to become two, even three books because of how much imagination is shown throughout by the author.
Despite all that, the story really grips your attention - you can really see the journey from different perspectives. I also found it interesting how the author was not afraid to kill off characters that may have been the reader’s favourite. I loved how many mystical creatures the author included in the book, it has a something for everyone; from giants and elves to dragons and wizards. The author managed to paint a very vivid picture of the journey of the characters to find the ‘miracle child’. As well as where it all took place - all the descriptions were so detailed - it very much felt like you were inside their world watching their adventure from the side-lines.
