Fall of Sky City by S.M. Blooding
Posted by brriske
Book 1 of the Devices of War Trilogy
In a world governed by the opposing forces of the mystical House of Tarot and the tribal Great Families, Synn is caught in the crossfire. He witnesses the slaughter of innocent people, and the devastating murder of his father. This act awakens his Mark of power, a Mark greater than any the world has seen in a very long time.
Queen Nix thought she won a great prize when she destroyed Synn’s father, the leader of the strongest Great Families. She had no idea she’d be doubly blessed by capturing his son. However, before Synn can become her treasured weapon, before she can use him to bring the rest of the world to its knees, she must break him and bind his soul to hers.
She does her job with brutal brilliance. Synn’s mind is broken and his soul is seared to hers in an unbreakable bond.
That doesn’t stop him from wanting to be free. She may have broken his mind and claimed his soul, but he will find a way to destroy her.
Experience a world of ships that sail the clouds and cites buried beneath the ocean, and survive the fiery battle brought forth by those who control the forces of nature!
This book is the 1st in the Devices of War trilogy and introduces the characters and the plot. This book has a lot of rich description. The different groups or families live in sync with animals and depend upon each other to survive. Some of the people are more comfortable in the air, some land and some water. The descriptions of the strange creatures are interesting, especially how they interact with each other.
