#BookReview: Keys of the Origin (The Scions of Balance, #1) by Melissa A. Joy

Synopsis: 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?

Two young men; one a righteous law-abiding servant to the people, the other a distinguished outlaw, don’t yet realise they are to play a part in a foretold bid for the future of Aeldynn. 

Fate leads them down a road they would never have dreamed of following; a road that leads them into a struggle to bring the world back into a state of balance from the precipice of madness and desolation. 

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


Rating: ★★★
My Review: When I started reading this one I thought wow the artwork on the title is amazing and the cover is gorgeous.  When I started the story I was blown away by the writing.  It was very good in that dept.  However, this book ended up not being for me.  I found it very lyrical in the writing and over the top with its descriptions.  I think those who love books that are wordy with descriptions would love this one.  I also thought that some of this was kind of confusing and there was a fair amount of info dumping as well.
