Onyx of Darkness: An epic dragon fantasy (The Keeper Chronicles Book 2)
By Norma Hinkens
This is the second book in the The Keeper Chronicles Series. In the first book, we met Orlla, a keeper, and Erdhan, a Macobite that she met while on her travels. If you have not read Opal of Light, I suggest you read it first, as it has a lot of detail that follows into this book. You could read this book as a standalone, but I feel that you would do yourself, and the author, a great disservice if you did. I reviewed Opal of Light here if you’d like to read it and find the link for purchase:
In Onyx of Darkness, Orlla and Erdhan find themselves on a new mission- to seek out the Onyx of Darkness and bring it to the Keepers for safekeeping. It’s more than obvious how dangerous the Onyx is, once they’ve seen it in action. The future of all of the kingdoms rests in their hands, and they’ve never had a more important task than the one at hand. But in order to succeed, they’ll have to get past mercenaries, armed assassins, and even an old enemy they thought was gone forever. This book has well developed characters; both familiar ones from the first book as well as new ones introduced in this book, as well as great visualization and fantastic plot sequencing. I found it to be highly entertaining and spent many mornings with red eyes from staying up too late. I’d definitely put this on a to be read list, along with Opal of Light and the soon to be released third book in the set, Opus of Doom.
