Altors (Zinc Chronicles, #1) by Nas Peters, Fantasy/YA Fantasy
An underground war is taking place, kept hidden from the public eye by those called the Altors and Regius. Although unaware at first of what their involvement brings to the people of Zinc, Calycanthus close proximity to the Altors allows him to uncover parts of the truth, creating an important turning point that may just be the kick the Altors need to beat the Regius. But it is Solenum who will find the possible key that can lead to a peaceful future.
Is Galax an exception to the rule that says all Regius are cruel? Will Solenum be able to show him that he may just be the example everyone needs in order to end the hidden turmoil? Meanwhile, can Calycanthus figure out the intentions of the mysterious man named Datura?
New friendships are made and love is found as the two best friends work hard on finding their way back to one another throughout a world they’d always lived in, but was a mystery up until now
Let me say that Nas Peters has the ability to draw you in with a unique world and endearing characters who forge strong bonds. One of the things I’ve always loved about fantasy is the wonder of a world filled with magic and what people chose to do with it. Will someone choose to help or to harm? And so we’re presented with an underground war that’s being waged between the Altors and the Regius.
Cal and Sol are two friends who play a role in this, especially after the death of their guardian. Their bonds will be tested by conflict and uncovering secrets. I also enjoyed Galax, and how there was more dimension to him (a Regius) that perhaps others thought was not possible.
I don’t want to give too much away, but this is definitely a book to pick up! And did I mention that Ms. Nas Peters is an illustrator as well? Amazing artwork.
