Choices Meant for All
by Sandy Lender
From the foothills of the Freotho Mountains to the marble halls of Mahriket, factions of deities rise to threaten not just Master Rothahn’s crown, but all of Onweald’s people. The battles fan the gates of the dark spirit world releasing demons of every species to aid the enemy, but Emperor Nigel Taiman brings Malachi’s power to the Arcanan Army’s camp in hopes of tipping the balance in his bride’s favor. Dangerous times call for strange allies from all quarters.
To restore the geasa that will save the god she’s sworn to protect, Amanda Chariss must escape the very Betrayer’s grasp and make choices for the good of all. Does she have the will to sacrifice all that she holds dear in the process? Dive into the action-packed conclusion of the Choices trilogy to discover how prophecy works with and against those who would heed it.
“Have you been acting a part all along?” He gripped her by the throat. “Have you?”
She tried to loosen his grip. “My dearest one, she’s trying to turn me against you,” Chariss gagged. “She’s using an influencing spell on you to confuse you.
“Don’t you think I’d recognize an influencing spell?” Drake spat.
He lifted her from her feet and drove her to the floor harshly, pounding her head against the dirt. The impact jarred her teeth. For a second, she feared she would lose consciousness.
His knees had her pinned to the ground as Brendan had once pinned her to a boat deck in practice; she had to remember how she’d escaped from the captain’s hold. One of her hands worked at Drake’s on her neck, the other tried to get a grip on his jugular.
While he berated her for inconstancy, while he tugged at the dress of the woman he had claimed to adore, Julette rose from her table and moved to stand before her edras servants.
“Do you understand what you are to do?” she asked them
The first nodded. The second slurred, “We are to empty our seed in the goddess.”
Drake still spouted venom at Chariss when they overheard the edras, and they froze—motionless. Both his and Chariss’s eyes opened wide. “What?” he asked, looking to Julette.
“Protect me,” Chariss whispered up to him, her voice shaking.
“Drake, your job is to hold her.”
“No, no no,” Chariss whispered. Her nails at his neck turned to a soft cupping of his cheek. “Please, Jamieson, my lord, my love, please protect me.”
It’s finally time to take a stand and be done with Julette and Drake. Nigel has convinced Chariss that she would be safe from all that hunted her in Arcana, their home was a fortress. After all it was guarded by the highest active god, but once again Chariss was right and Drake has taken her. Fortunately it was after her and Rhone had made preparations for just this thing and gathered forces still faithful to him and had been training those soldiers and moving them towards Drake’s army. Now Nigel has to use a level head to get The Master and The Master’s Protector out of the Betrayer’s hands in one piece as well as destroy them without the use of the geasea that Julette made sure to put in pieces of a prophecy into place so that she and her sorcerers would be the only ones that could wield magic.
The reader is definitely on a wild ride while Lender ties up the story that has been built with the other two books. Each page leaves you yearning for more and there are still surprises and nothing can be predicted until the very last page comes.
