Siblings Armist and Tahlia are children
of Hain, ruler of Keaen. Bound by an ancient Covenant Armist and Tahlia threaten the stability of a nation by escaping their
predestined lives. A chase for the siblings ensues and one that will lead them across two kingdoms, throwing them into a path
of total chaos.
They will soon find themselves facing
numerous dangers, including a fight for their very freedom and existence. Unexpectedly, the siblings receiving help from Pandrak
the magice-at-court, and Caitlan the weaponsmaster.
Keaen is an enticing read with action around every corner moving along briskly. Till Noever’s writing style
is descriptive, provoking, and electrifying. Readers will not be bored or bombarded with excessive back-story like in so many
books. The author does well at divulging what and when as needed only. It is quite visible that this author has carefully
designed this fantastical tale without having sacrificed adventure.
Keaen is a genuine medieval-like
society, and a richly described world that will leave readers searching
for its location.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Mr. Noever’s
work and certainly look forward to more!
