He made her believe they were destined for great things. He made her believe anything was possible, so long as they were together. His hope was fearless and she was grateful for that. Loved him for that.

Roan and Kay are orphans.

A fire destroys their old life, but they have one chance to enter the School of Faith.

They are given one month to pass the entry trials, but as Roan excels and Kay fails, their devotion to each other is put to the test.

They swore they would face everything together, but when the stakes are losing the life they’ve always dreamed of, what will they do to stay together?

What won’t they do?

A heartbreaking narrative that was so realistic at times, I forgot I was reading fantasy, this episode of the Echoes of the Ascended did not disappoint.

Amazing, well developed and relatable characters combines with snappy realistic dialogue and simple prose, to make this coming of age story of orphans out to make a name for themselves, a true fantasy gem.

Having read A Reaper of Stone, this wasn’t my first trip to Aedaron, but I can’t imagine newcomers to the world would be any less enchanted.
