Synopsis- Venators – Legends Rise by Devri Walls
In the third installment of the Venators series, Rune, Grey, and their companions Beltran and Verida have set off together to save their mentor Tate from the gladiator games. As their group struggles to stay together under the strain of their situation, Rune’s twin brother Ryker is falling more surely into the clutches of Zio the sorceress, who has her own plots for the future of Eon, and the Venators.
The path will be forged in sweat and blood.
Rune, Grey, the shape-shifter Beltran, and willful vampire, Verida, set out to rescue their friend and mentor, Tate, from the gladiator games. But first they must navigate the perils of Eon and its warring factions. Each of this band of four carries with them a secret that threatens to tear their group apart from within. Rune now bears the mark of the promise she made to save Grey’s life-a nixie bubble lodged in her arm that could call her away to do their bidding or spell her death.
Even as their loyalty to their cause and to one another faces its greatest test, Rune’s twin brother Ryker is forging an alliance with their mortal enemy, the powerful sorceress Zio, who has plans of her own for the Venators and Eon. Hearts will be bared, secrets unveiled, and relationships made and destroyed in this stunning new installment of the Venators series.
I was waiting to read the third book in the series and finally I got to and this book didn’t disappoint. The world set up in the book of venators is one of my favorite till date. And the setting up a whole world and making the characters realistic is very difficult but the author writing and storytelling skills are spot on. The very reason, I enjoy reading about this worlds in this book.
We follow our main characters Grey and Rune, who have just lived through the last books mess, won’t say much on that, because we don’t do spoilers on this blog. Back to the characters, the whole book is a rescue arc but at the same time we get to know more about the other characters like Beltran and Verida. So, it was good to know there story which hinted a bit in the previous books.
The story was for different point of views, which was good as there was so much is going on the story and so many plans unfolding it was nice touch to have different point of views. Mostly i liked this book because there was so much politics going on in the book, at this point we only have hints to what the next book will have. And also, everything Zio is doing to see that the council breaks. I like her character arc in this books. Also, I know she is supposed to be a villain but, she is a character you remember the most.
