Patrick Carr Launches a New Suspense-filled Fantasy Epic
When one man is brutally murdered and the priest he works for mortally wounded on the streets of Bunard, Willet Dura is called to investigate. Yet the clues to the crime lead to contradictions and questions without answers. As Willet begins to question the dying priest, the man pulls Willet close and screams in a foreign tongue. Then he dies without another word.
Willet returns to the city, no closer to answers than before, but his senses are skewed. People he touches appear to have a subtle shift, a twist seen at the edge of his vision, and it’s as though he can see their deepest thoughts. In a world divided between haves and have-nots, gifted and common, Willet soon learns he’s been passed the rarest gift of all: a gift that’s not supposed to exist.
Now Willet must pursue the murderer still on the loose in Bunard even as he’s pulled into a much more dangerous and epic conflict that threatens not only his city, but his entire world–a conflict that will force him to come to terms with his own tortured past if he wants to survive.
Just finished this book last night! Carr pens an epic adult fantasy, rich in character development and plot twists. It is darker than his previous series and definitely for adults.
<See my review SHOCK OF NIGHT here>
While it is well-written, I admit to mixed feelings about it because it is darker. Still I look forward to reading the second installment, The Shattered Vigil (The Darkwater Saga, #2), published in 2016.
