Empyreal Fate by Rachel Hunter Tour Stop

Description: Filled to the brim with forbidden love, an ancient evil, and a nation in disrepair, Empyreal Fate is a tale of riveting bravery and mortal corruption.

The land of Llathala lingers on the brink of war between men and elves, a dark history surrounding each race. Stirred by tensions of the land, a shadow of the past reemerges, taking precedence in reality and consuming the very soul of mans’ mortal weakness. Darrion, the son of a poor laborer, is ensnared in a hostile world, forced to choose between loyalty to his king or the counsel of the elves. Yet Fate has other plans in store, tying his course to Amarya, an elven royalblood of mysterious quality and unsurpassable beauty. But this forbidden connection incites betrayal from members of their own kin, marking them as traitors to the crown. In a land torn asunder, only Fate’s decree can allow such love to coexist with an ancient enmity.

Behold: A Llathalan Annal: Empyreal Fate – Part One

Unfortunately, it was difficult for me to get into Empyreal Fate. The history lesson at the beginning of the book just didn't sit well with me. It simply slowed me down and left me a little confused on what was going on at first. Also, though I usually don't have a problem from having things come from different POVs, however, I couldn't get much of a hold on, the beginning in which things come a few different characters.

Once I got into it I enjoyed it for the most part. I did like the characters that being said, I continued to read it after the beginning just so that I could find out what was going to happen to the different characters. Though I liked it, I would say it was far from being a favorite fantasy. I had no problem putting it down, and when it came time for me to read it I was rather hesitant with it. Still, I would recommend it to others and I'm looking forward for more.

I give it three stars. I wonder if I had given myself more time between reading Empyreal Fate and writing the review if I would think more highly of it.
