In the strange and magical world of the Middle Realms,
there are many diverse races of people that inhabit the lands. Humans,
elves, dwarves, and plenty more civil creatures thrive on this planet.
The different races are commonly viewed on a spectrum, and at the
very ends of it, there are seraphs and demons. One exalted, and one
feared. Every group in the middle of the gradient strives to be like the
angels, as they are said to be pure-hearted and loving. Unfortunately,
what people know about these beings almost always comes from what
they have been taught rather than based on experience. Because of this,
it is often preached that a person can only be either good or bad, and
anything in between isn’t relevant.
It wasn’t easy for Dacitrynn, who grew up in a very uncomfortable
spot his whole life. Being a crossbreed of an angel and a demon isn’t
something that is welcomed in the world, especially since it is
forbidden. After a lonely childhood of growing up as an outcast with
the seraphs, it is finally time for Daci’s life to change when he is
banished from the High Lands following a public fight with his
stepbrother that grew violent. However, even though Dacitrynn no
longer lives with the angels, society below proves itself to be just as -if
not even more cruel- than his birthplace, and hopelessness soon leaves
him feeling defeated. Even if things eventually start to calm, there is
always another stressor that makes its way into the half-demon’s life,
and at the end of the day, he can only find himself wandering back to
the same two questions that have burdened him since the day of his
Is there truly a place for such a horrible monster like him in the world,
and what use could his existence possibly serve?
Let me tell y’all… I started reading this book and enjoyed every minute of it as I read the near 400 pages in 2 days. This book has everything; immense character development, lush descriptions of the environment, love interests, lore, action scenes, and much more! I found myself stopping at some points to visualize what the author was portraying through their words. I cannot recommend this novel enough! In the link below, there is much more detail of behind the scenes, as well as some cool items to check out! To Felix Cipher; incredible job on this work of art.
