#BookReview: The Twelve Realms by A.D. Sloane

Synopsis: There are messages told through language.
There are messages told through symbols.
And there are messages told through terror.

Nabii, a young Moorish royal, endures harrowing nights of chilling visions.

When an eccentric priest and a mysterious shaman seek to end her horrors, they unveil a series of cryptic messages and discover that her dreams are linked to an ages-old mystical prophecy with global implications.

The Twelve Realms is a historical reimagining that links kings and paupers, priests and soldiers, shamans and witches in an epic adventure. Nabii is the key within a tapestry of intertwined people, from Western Africa to the Far East and the British Isles, who must join forces and find a weapon that will defeat the shadows prophesized to rise from the deep.

My Review: This one I wanted to love but sadly it just wasn't for me. It was just so slow and boring and I just couldn't love anything about it.
