The continuing story from Mystical Mountain Magic – ‘Deceiver’, where foreign explorers in search of gold and the fountain of youth discover more than they bargained for: Leira, the Deceiver who’s crafted in gems and walks on three legs; Razor—her minion; giant eagles who guard Elysium Valley, and Igneous, the zany caretaker of the mountain, who nurtures millions of living-stones within the corridors of a magical volcano named Misty.
As explorers create mayhem on this continent, an infant girl – Mariah – is rescued and raised by the eagles and is commissioned by the mountain to restore Hope to a world without hope and save mankind from its disastrous effects before Leira can assassinate her.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review 🙂
Redeemer is the second in the Mystical Mountain Magic series. While it would be helpful to have read book one first, I feel this novel can stand alone as well. We meet Captain Erikson again, but this time he is alone, drunk, and a vagrant. He is tormented by the screams of the healing-stone he tried to steal in book one, and then a noseless man drags Erikson into facing the very thing he has been trying to run away from … the sentient mountain. What happens when eight men decide to try and tackle this living, breathing, and thinking mountain? We have plot twists galore in this book, and all of our favourite characters return. The ending is a nice surprise, and I can’t wait to see what this author comes up with in book three! A strong 5 out of 5 stars from me 🙂
