To undo a mistake made a thousand years in the past, the wizard Hellsfire used his magic to bring down the Great Barrier that once divided the northern and southern lands. In doing so, he nearly brought war to his own homeland, and he afflicted the love of his life, Princess Krystal of Alexandria, with a potent and deadly curse.

Since then, Hellsfire has been working in Tyree with its Elemental Council, to rebuild its war-torn land and find a way to break Krystal’s curse. Now Krystal’s time is running out. As the princess fights for her life, Hellsfire learns that the wizard responsible for the curse—his old enemy Premier—is heading to the Burning Sands to steal the mysterious Jewel of Dakara.

If Hellsfire can capture Premier and learn the secret of the curse, he can save Krystal. But the Jewel of Dakara holds its own deadly secrets, and the hunt will take Hellsfire farther than he ever imagined, and cost him more than he bargained for.

The past is never gone nor buried…

First of all, Reawakening is a great book. Let that be said. But if you want to fully enjoy it, I recommend reading the series in order. I didn’t, and it’s a lot more confusing that way, believe me. I’m now going to read book one and two as soon as I find some time, and then re-read the third book. But I didn’t have time before I needed to review this book. C’est la vie.

Anyway, Hellsfire is a wizard who brought down the Great Barrier dividing the northern and southern lands. Unfortunately this caused his beloved, Princess Krystal of Alexandria, to become cursed. And the northern and southern lands aren’t exactly the best of friends either. Hellsfire has been working with the Elemental Council to rebuild the land and find a way to break the curse. Just when time is running out for Krystal, Hellsfire learns that Premier, his nemesis and the wizard responsible for the curse, is heading to the Burning Sands to steal the Jewel o f Dakara.

Upon that, Hellsfire leaves for the Burning Sands, but there he learns about demons, deadly secrets, and things that threaten more than just Krystal’s life.

Reawakening is filled with so much suspense and action, and I don’t want to spoil anything, but Hellsfire finds himself in so many complicated, life-threatening situations that I just had to keep reading. Whenever I thought they were safe for a moment, something else happened, and often something totally unexpected.

Excellent writing, brilliant world-building and interesting characters, especially Hellsfire. I’m looking forward to diving into book one and two and to get to know these characters better.
