In a violent and turbulent world a young woman must decide,vengeance or destiny. Justice Xavier has lived half of her life enslaved. Traded from owner to owner for her stubborn refusal to capitulate to her owners’ wills she has lived a life of torture all in the name of hiding her true nature. That of the Order’s hope of Bella Morte,beautiful death. She is believed it be a skilled warrior and a commander of the elements all in the name in leading them to victory over the all powerful Eleanor of Ke’lan and returning the world to a pre-apocalyptic state where the Order can protect the world behind its shield of anonymity against the men who would see all women and children subjected to
their collective will.
\Duncan is called Legend. An enslaved gladiator who fights to survive in the arena of the Queen he is favored by her in their illicit trysts. Only this
time she is calling upon him to murder Bella Morte. But he is not alone in the tunnels, in the adjacent cell is William, a gifted and trained healer, who appeals to whatever humanity that might remain in Duncan. And when Duncan’s connection to Bella Morte is revealed they are faced with a choice. Depend on one another or face death apart.
Diving right into my thoughts on this book and its author I will say at the beginning it was great, throwing you into several different ways that the character Justice Xavier life could go. I love her first name, Justice, being that my last name Justice.
Author Kate Lynd has a way of which she writes her main characters story line as to make you see in your mind exactly what they look like and the manner in which they are living. Her descriptions may not all be clear or some times seems off. That was one of the only things that kinda sit me back just a little from reading it all at once. Not saying that her style is wrong, but that at times was not my thoughts. But there again it is Her Story, so she has to write how she see's it right? Author Kate Lynd is a wonderful author and I will be checking out more of her work. The characters are for the most part believable.
I have read several pre-apocalyptic story lines, but this one just seemed to have a little lack of luster for pulling me in and placing myself within the pages of this book. Not wanting to bash or discourage others out there to read Bella Morte: Beginnings by author Kate Lynd, I will just say that it just wasn't for me. Please check it out for yourself.
So for the above reasons I will be giving this book a Breath of Life Rating:
Three Clock Rating!
