SUMMARY:

Would you keep a secret if it made you look guilty of murder?What if that secret also protected your loved ones? For Emperor Cassius ruling the magical Empire of Ertera means keeping such secrets…even from his beloved daughters, Megara and Lira.

The BookViral Review: 

For avid fans of Fantasy Fiction seeking something genuinely memorable which will sweep them away to a world of magical adventure, Rising Shadows may well mark the end of their quest. Immediately enthralling, laden with opulent characters and with the most intriguing plot, it may be a debut novel for Meraki but she’s hit the ground running with an epic series in the making. It takes a lot to stand out in such a popular genre, especially when it comes to creating imaginatively rendered worlds but Meraki takes it in her stride and in doing so proves she is an adept storyteller. One who is comfortable staying loyal to genre tropes whilst still making them feel fresh and original as Lira and Megara are thrust into a power game where the stakes are beyond measure. Her story is rich in detail but not cluttered by it, doing exactly what it should do by sweeping readers up into another time and place, into a world they will be sad to leave.  Underpinned by strong character and dialogue development which is refreshingly free of faux-classical baggage she creates an emotional connection with her readers which is hard to deny.

Raising the stakes for the next outing in Meraki’s Ertera series, Rising Shadows embodies the enduring appeal of the genre and is strongly recommended.

The Occult -why the fascination with dark fiction?

While the occult is a broad umbrella, hiding its many forms under its silky black folds, it’s concepts have endured through time, enjoying many a resurgence through the ages. The term ‘occultism’, is relatively new, not used in French or English literature, for instance, until the 19th Century, although the term ‘occult sciences’ was commonly used in the 16th Century to describe practices such as astrology, alchemy, mysticism, and natural magic.
