Rating: 5 StarsBlurb:
At the very beginning of time, all was dark and quiet. Destiny and her
Husband Decision were the only occupants of this somber place. She
Knew all knowledge, felt every emotion, and predicted every move of
Her creation. He saw all the possibilities, all the choices that may or may
Not be made. It was all there. They spoke life into the stillness and made
A world filled with beauty and perfection.
Then she bore two sons: Kamali and Gualtiere.

As you read the beginning here it seems to remind one of the creation;
“In the beginning…….” As you read this book you can see in your mind an analogy of Christianity.

Travel to a land back in time to a enchanted land where you are may find
Mermaid’s swimming under the waterfall, Demons prowl through out the
forest .Wars, rumors of wars, where peace is trying to rule again

In the mists of all this meet Willow and Evadne, twin sisters who through-
out the story, fight battles of purity, fighting off demons, and at the age
when romance seems to enter the picture. As royalty and daughters of the
King, each has their own special power .One of healing, one of reading minds.

Enter Demetrius and Josiah; Brothers who both have their eye on the young
Princesses. As they join the battle, fighting the demons, fighting wars…..

Will peace return to the land? Will the sisters, whose bond with each other
Never wavers, find romance. Will peace return to their hearts?

If you enjoyed The Chronicles of Narnia, I know you will enjoy reading this
Book. I could not put it down when I started reading it. It is a very fast and
Read, and I look forward to a sequel to this book.

These young authors have got a hit on their hands and I think it would make a
great movie. I played out a movie in my mind as I read the book and when I
can play a movie in my mind as I read, then the book gets a great rating



  1. Good review – definitely got my interest piqued in reading this book.
