Keys of the Origin: A First Review

Melkhar - city colour WMKA land that is out of balance and the journey of those who have the chance to save it, the Keys of the Origin, the first book in this saga by Melissa A. Joy.

The book was a little slow to start, I normally prefer to be gripped by the story almost straight away, but I am very glad I stuck with it. The story is complex, and that coupled with exceptionally detailed and descriptive writing has made for a wonderful start to this series.  The descriptive writing enabled me to immerse myself in the story and in some places, like the fair in Almadeira; I could almost hear the music and feel the atmosphere whilst still being sat in my living room.

There are lots of twists and turns throughout and jumping between places and characters, but it in this case I felt that it worked really well because you get a well rounded view of the story as it happens. It was very difficult to figure out what was going to happen next, which made it a brilliant page-turner. If you stick with it as I did, you will find yourself unable to put the book down!

IN A WORLD WHERE ANCIENT RACES STILL DWELL, THE EVENTS OF AN AGE-OLD PROPHECY BEGIN TO STIR.  FROM THE PAGES OF AN ANTIQUE TOME, THERE IS MUCH THE ANCIENTS THEMSELVES HAVE YET TO LEARN.

THE TIME HAS COME FOR THE KEYS OF THE ORIGIN TO PLAY THEIR PART IN RESTORING BALANCE TO AELDYNN; BUT HOW WILL THEIR CHOICES AFFECT THE OUTCOME?

Fate leads two young men down a road they would never have dreamed of following; a road leading them into a struggle to bring the world back into a state of balance from the precipice of madness and desolation. One is a righteous law-abiding servant to the people, the other a distinguished pirate, and both are unknowingly about to play their part in a foretold bid for Aeldynn’s future.

It is not only Zehn and Larkh who are tasked with taking on the malevolent forces of Aeldynn; others must join them as they are coaxed into the embrace of the ancient Nays and their fabled Drahknyr, who are also entangled in the masterful puppeteering of a renegade sorceress hell bent on reviving the greatest threat of all.
