Katika Schneider creates a fantasy universe full of magic, wonder, death, and destruction. Her characters come to life off of the page and beg you to hear their stories. Each of the main host of characters is distinct in their personage and ways of life. Each monster and villain she creates leaves you cheering for the good guys and snarling at the bad. From one moment to the next I found myself in awe, in fear, in joy, and in tears. She weaves a tale that holds you close from the start and has you chasing to be closer by the paragraph. I was truly amazed at how well written each piece of this story was. I am happy to say that I can add Ms. Schneider to my ever growing collection of new favorite Indie Authors. And, I simply can’t wait for the story to continue. Thank you for the adventure….
