Descrizione

A thrilling new fantasy series full of magic and betrayal — from Evelyn Skye, New York Times best-selling author of the Crown’s Game series.

Sora can move as silently as a ghost and hurl throwing stars with lethal accuracy. Her gemina, Daemon, can win any physical fight blindfolded and with an arm tied around his back. They are apprentice warriors of the Society of Taigas — marked by the gods to be trained in magic and the fighting arts to protect the kingdom of Kichona.

As their graduation approaches, Sora and Daemon look forward to proving themselves worthy of belonging in the elite group — but in a kingdom free of violence since the Blood Rift Rebellion many years ago, it’s been difficult to make their mark.

So when Sora and Daemon encounter a strange camp of mysterious soldiers while on a standard scouting mission, they decide the only thing to do to help their kingdom is to infiltrate the group. Taking this risk will change Sora’s life forever — and lead her on a mission of deception that may fool everyone she’s ever loved.

Love, spies, and adventure abound as Sora and Daemon unravel a complex web of magic and secrets that might tear them — and the entire kingdom — apart forever.

    The main characters Sora and Daemon are training to be taigas of the island of Kichona. Taigas are the soldiers and police of the island but more like ninjas with magic. When they are visiting a forest that Daemon’s sees as home they stumble across an enemy that threatens Kichona and all they hold dear.Do you ever read a book and think you love it but then start to think about it and realize you had more problems with it then you thought. Circle of Shadows is that book for me. I really loved the friendships in this book between the 4 main characters especially the bond between Sora and Daemon. They were my favorite parts of the book. That and the author’s description of the island and it’s people. You really fall in love with the island.But my problems are four fold. The enemies and there magic is not explained very well. I need more of an explanation because the whole time I was thinking who gave it to you, why can only this person give it, why has no one ever come to take the island with this magic before, ect… The magic of the Taigas was sad and one of the most childish magic systems I have ever read. Eyes like a Hawk, Eyes like a Hawk is NOT a spell. Neither is I am a Spider over and over again. The love triangle the author added at the end. It is a pointless one and I hate it when authors just add it for no reason and out of the blue I might add. Last but not least I need a lot more information on the Gemina bond like why do they have it, do they all have one, and few other questions and every time I was like finally an explanation nope no explanation.Saying all this I did enjoy the characters and parts of the story. Will I read it again no. Did I have fun reading it yes. Will I read the sequel no but I will look up how it ends.Rating: 3 starsHeat Rating: Embers(some kisses)Keeper or Ditch it: Ditch it

    This was an entertaining start to a new fantasy series with a faintly Japanese flavor. Sora and Daemon are geminas - linked as companions - in the Society of Taigas. Taigas are fighters trained in both magic and fighting skills to protect the Empress and the kingdom of Kichona. Since the new Empress took over, after a fight with her twin brother that almost brought the kingdom to war and killed Sora's little sister, the kingdom has been idyllic - peaceful and prosperous. Sora has had an easy time of her training. Her magic comes easily to her unlike her gemina Daemon who is a gifted fighter physically but not very good at magic. Sora has a motto - Work hard, mischief harder - which means she doesn't try very hard.When she and Daemon encounter a mysterious camp, they learn that the defeated Prince Gin didn't die is the revolution twelve years earlier but, instead, survived and learned a frightening new kind of magic. He has returned to conquer Kichona and change it to match his vision for the future. He worships Zomuri who promises to make Kichona a paradise if only he'll sacrifice two hundred people for their hearts and embark on a plan of conquest of other countries. Prince Gin has his own loyal taigas but he also has a way to brainwash anyone else who crosses his path and is thus building an army as he moves toward the capitol. Sora becomes brainwashed until she is rescued by Daemon who is uniquely immune to the Prince's magic. Unable to convince the leaders of the Society that Prince Gin is back, they sneak out of the city to try to find more proof. Sora is captured again and this time is taught the new ryuu magic. She also learns that what she thought happened during the first revolution isn't true. This was an action-packed start to a series with well-drawn, interesting characters and a well-developed fantasy world. Fans of adventure and magic will enjoy this one.
