#BookReview: Secret of Souls (Age of Endings #1) by @aubriewrites

 
After witnessing something dark and strange on a routine mission, Zephera Travelle– a nineteen-year-old assassin with a weakness for braided cinnamon bread and an affinity for murder–is thrust on a seemingly impossible quest to save her world.

Teaming up with her best friend and three warriors with flexible morals, she starts her journey on a search for a woman called “The First.” As a 500-year old cycle is about to start anew, creatures from The Lands of Somber have begun to invade, bringing with them a dark and deadly plague called The Decay. Zephera realizes that there may be more to this mission than simply finding “The First.”

She comes to realize that everyone in her life may not be quite what they seem, as more about the curse that separated their realms is revealed. She soon discovers The Lands of Somber might not be so evil after all, and perhaps it is her realm that is filled with Darkness. She holds the lit match and must choose whether to resurrect the world, or help it burn.





Aubrie plays mom to a cutest demon topside. When she isn’t writing she is daydreaming about hot brooding anti-heroes and sassy heroines. She loves Dragon Age, Game of Thrones and reading all things fantasy. She runs a local YA/NA bookclub with 3 chapters, and over 200 members. If she could have dinner with anyone living or dead it would be Alan Rickman because his voice is the sexiest sound on earth. He could read the dictionary and she would be enthralled. Her current mission in life is to collect creepy taxidermy animals because she finds them cute and hilarious. She resides just outside of Washington DC.


This one was pretty good.  You can really tell how the author grew in strength as the book progressed. How she became comfortable with her characters and the story.  I do slightly think that some of the descriptions could have been cut out especially in the beginning as it slows the story down. But all in all, this was a great fantasy for those who die hard love high fantasy.  This is one that the cover will draw you in and the story will keep you there.  With wonderful new creatures and great characters and an even better plot. This new book from Nixon will keep you on your toes as you delve into this wonderful world she has created.
