The Siege of Sol (Guardians of Illyria Book 3)
"One pantheon desperate to keep power.
Another desperate to seize it.
Two teenage gods stuck in the middle."
On the Continent of Origin, deep in the deserts of the High Heat, rises one of the last remaining Citadels of the humans. Defiant and well-defended, it is known as Sol. And in this epic third installment of the Guardians of Illyria series, it will be the stage for one of the greatest conflicts yet waged between the oppressive forces of Illyria and the rebel human race.
Now 14 years old, Ionikus Reaves, Thunder Lord of the Endari, is plagued by the darkness of his past and future. His powers grow stronger by the day, as do the doubts in his plans for revenge. But when the Endari scheme to forge an alliance with an unlikely foe—the humans of Sol—Ion must set aside his uncertainties. One misstep and his allies could become his enemies, his ultimate plan never come fruition.
Lady Lillian of Illyria has only recently settled into her new position amongst the pantheon she long feared and respected. But soon, she finds her elven blood a problem for the pureblooded gods of Illyria. On top of navigating their foreign customs, backstabbing, and searing whispers, she must also endure their wrath…and the dark secrets behind the fall of the previous pantheon.
Review by Nocturnus about the 1st book in the series ~The Iron-Jawed Boy Book 1 ~ Future FantasyThis book was pure awesomeness! I found it very engaging and unique. The world was loosely based on a far future of an alternate Earth where we are the bad guys and supernatural element callers and living Gods roam. We destroyed the world by using up all the resources and polluting indiscriminately so the Gods were forced to come out of seclusion to clean up our mess and restore some semblance of Balance. These societies are at constant war with each other.
