Traveler, writer, reviewer, all-round observer. I like anything cool & fast, but occasionally sit at a cafe watching the world go by.
Imagine if you will, an outdoor winter wedding. A quiet, peaceful scene with pure white snow and a touch of playfulness from one of the flirtatious guests. No sooner do you settle in to that tranquility, it’s disrupted by a bloodbath massacre caused by an unknown supernatural source.
On a lonely island, three sole survivors band together to keep the source of the black magic that slaughtered everyone they knew at bay. Meanwhile, in a faraway kingdom, the inhabitants struggle under the wrath of a tyrannical, insatiable King whose mission is to lift the island’s magic that’s kept them imprisoned within the boundaries of their land. It’s magic versus magic in a game of survival that’s gone on for generations.
From its first page, Luca Rossi skillfully pulls the reader into another world -a world of vengeance, love, betrayal, and mysticism that spans two thousand years. The Branches of Time is a great read to lose yourself in. Luca’s imagination is surprisingly refreshing -quite different and unique.
I enjoyed part 1 of this two-book story, and can’t wait to find out what happens next!
