Description

"Look at her - she's Hill Clan. Even the Matyrani don't like them ...' Isaura - little is known about her race, but much is whispered. Born to refugees, she grows up enduring racism and superstition within a community that fears her. She has few friends, and those she treasures. Trapped, she longs for escape to a different life. Escape is only the beginning of her troubles. Having fled an invading army with her friends, Isaura is faced with heinous choices in order to survive. Secrets from her past emerge to torment her and threaten to destroy all she holds dear. Her struggles forge a bond with an ancient power - a power which may transform or consume her. Old hatreds and superstitions are renewed and at her most vulnerable she learns the true nature of those around her. Her only hope lies in a foreign land - a land rich in tradition; ruled by three powerful clans. A land with a history marked by warfare; where magic as we know it does not exist. Instead what is here, in abundance, is a more primal power. Survival carries a high price. Welcome to Altaica."show more

Our customer reviews

It's been a while since I read this kind of fantasy I sometime struggle getting into these kinds of book, but with Altaica that was not the case. The book starts in a epic way a load of action and I really like that you felt like you had jumped into Isaura life at the most dangerous time of her life and I was going along for the ride of my life. The storyline was amazing and I loved the fact the book did not just stick with one character, but cut between many so you could get a better understanding of each character in the book. The book so was exciting I was biting my nails through some hairy parts of the book sometime the book had me feeling sad and other time I was overjoyed and happy and it was so refreshing to find a book that not only took your interest from the beginning, but also had a way of playing with your emotions and making you feel like your heart was on a roller coaster ride. I was ecstatic about the level of detail and the amazing world the author wove and it held me to the book the whole way though. I enjoyed each twist and turn that both shocked and excited you while you read along. By the time I was half way through I was sad that I would soon become to the end I just want the story to go on and on. When I got to the end of the book I just wanted more I had the simply need to know what happens next I really don't know how I'm going to wait until the next book. The book was simply Phenomenal with a completely engaging storyline and memorable characters.show more
