Some women call me a cold bastard, but not to my face.
They are half wrong. Men like me are born in the twilight, live in the shadow, and die in darkness. I have no destiny, save for repaying the debt we owe to the Daemons. This is not to say I am cold – only principled…
Forced into a bitter dismissal of his debauched Incanta, Reviver Amond grudgingly sets out to find another, but his cynicism cracks as he chances upon an innocent girl with a pure voice.
His luck, however, is tinged with misfortune.
Reviver Grym, his corrupt, sworn enemy is also hell-bent on winning the girl called Cytriah. Amidst the fierce rivalry that breaks out between them, Amond’s orderly world disintegrates into an appalling revelation: Grym is hardly a threat to Cytriah.
The worst could happen if Cytriah ended up in his own hands…
Prequels can either be a hit or miss with me. Luckily I thought this book was very much a hit. Reviver Amond was exactly the prequel I needed after reading the first book, Incanta Soul-Catcher. Amond was one of my favorite characters so I loved reading more about him and having some questions answered.
I read this book in less than a day and even so I took my time with it. This wasn’t a very long book but I thought it was really fleshed out and just excellent. Shorter books can often feel very rushed, but this definitely wasn’t the case with this one, which made me really happy.
The writing, again, was absolutely beautiful. I think I could read thousands of pages with the author’s writing and still it wouldn’t be enough.
Overall, Reviver Amond was obviously a fantastic read and such a great prequel. I loved it just as much as Incanta. I simply can’t get enough of this dark and unique world. It’s so very intriguing and jumping into these books is just so enjoyable.
At school, Avie busied herself with drawing comics about escaping school. It wasn’t an option, of course.
So she’d escape into reading. Her first reads were pure fantasy: fairy tales, preferably ambiguous, as well as myths from around the world and pretty much anything with a dark fantasy element in it.
She never thought she would write, but creating living and breathing dark worlds was too much of a temptation.

I love when prequels work out well!!
Prequels either work very well or not at all for me as well. It's funny that! But it's cool that it managed to answer some of your questions 😀
