I thought that this book was going to be about Aram, however it was about the people that Aram led and the people that he affected. There was a really good paranormal twist in the book and I also loved the clan loyalty as well. This is the first book in a trilogy and I cannot wait to read the rest. I hope that Aram made the right decision at the end of this book. I liked the end, but like I said, was it the best choice? The family dynamics in this book were interesting and I definitely felt for Aram's loss. The beast threw a wrench into Aram's plans and as his past comes back to haunt him he is faced with the most difficult choices of his life.
I was really involved in this story and there was a lot of action. I am giving this book a 4.5/5.
I was given a copy to review from Night Owl Reviews, however all opinions are my own.
Aram is a man who wants to start his life over but he must deal with his haunting past, a lost wife and son and a discontented clan. He must accept the choice he has made in a new wife and face a mysterious beast which pursues him through a dangerous terrain. While keeping his people safe against all odds he encounters a new land beside a beautiful lake and there he finds his first real sense of security and joy. Unexpectedly, he finds that he is in the midst of a battleground where an innocent clan is about to be annihilated and he must decide if he and his people will become involved. In the greatest battle of his life he must face his haunting past, turn a young pagan from his father's evil ways, and forge a new hope for future generations.
