Back Cover Blurb:
This thrilling sequel to Rhuna: Crossroads is set in mystical Ancient Egypt where Black Magic was developed by the followers of the legendary villain, The Dark Master. As strange and frightening curses plague the population, Rhuna discovers the underground organization that performs this uncanny new magic, but she can only combat it with the help of her long-lost father. Having learned from her father amazing new skills to empower her on the Astral Plane, Rhuna once again strives to preserve peace and harmony in the idyllic Atlan civilization.
Far more challenging than fighting powerful Dark Forces, however, is Rhuna’s personal anguish when her daughter becomes involved with the leader of the Black Magic movement, and the once-perfect Atlan society based on utopian principles begins to crumble all around her. Shocking events escalate Rhuna’s world to a breathless climax as she and her family undergo a momentous upheaval, and she is forced to make great personal sacrifices for her loved ones.
Underwood has done it again! I couldn't put this novel down for a second. Plot twists that I never could have imagined kept me on my toes throughout this enticingly written novel. Intricate world building continues throughout as we visit different areas of the world that has been so carefully crafted.
This very character driven novel provides a myriad of characters for readers to fall in love with (or to hate, whichever the case may be). I love how these individuals provoke strong emotions in the reader, creating a lasting bond that had me dying for more.
This was a fantastic 3rd novel in Underwood's series & I was very sad to see it end. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, or the rest of the series, to readers of all ages. That said, for the full experience I would also suggest reading the entire series in order.
