Book Review: Vaetra Unveiled

Despite their mutual distrust, Jaylan Forester, a disgraced former member of the Imperial Guard turned mercenary, and Sulana Delano, a hard-edged Sword Sorceress from the enigmatic Archives, team up to fight a lurking evil and recover a mysterious artifact.

Along the way Jaylan learns his destiny is somehow tied to "vaetra," the power sorcerers use to alter nature, and that he’s going to have to seriously adjust his prejudice against those who practice this ancient art.

Author Daniel Marvello has successfully crafted a truly exciting story, transporting the reader to a gritty and fascinating world that feels about as real as it gets. There were no “road bumps” (typos, weak world building, uninteresting characters) to derail me as this satisfying adventure story played out like a movie in my head. 

Every aspect of this book is fully developed and loving care has been taken to get everything just right. It’s not a short book and yet I easily finished it within two days – a testament to the fact that Vaetra Unveiled is a flat out page turner. Highly Recommended
