Left alone it grew vengeful
Angry, it sought to destroy all of existence
The Bethel galaxy is all that remains.
Bethel, the charmed central planet of the galaxy is on the brink of the year’s most anticipated event: the celebrated Twilight Bloom. Quade Decairus has no reason to believe that this year will be any different than those in the past: food and music, friends and the good cheer of those he loves the most. So why has he been plagued with nightmares of the end of his world coming on this very night?
Prophecies masked as legends. Impossible visions, bringing universal destruction. Only one man can seek those chosen to stop the evil and save them all.
In a world rich with magic and technology, a seamless blend of Fantasy and Sci-Fi, Destiny’s Kingdom explores Quade’s journey as he quests to save a galaxy that has always known peace and prosperity from a powerful evil only he can face.
Legend of the Chosen is book one in the Destiny’s Kingdom series\
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I think was a really good book, The concept was clear, the character were described in good details, hardly any errors made. I love how it intertwined Sci-fi with some fantasy in it.
This books starts out with a little bit of a prologue into the story, at first you're kind of like "Um what's going on?" but then you get into the actual story, where is starts out with a young man named Quade. He's on a planet, acquiring information on some of the uncharted "nexus's" which are basically tamed black holes, used for quicker space travel amongst the planets in the universe or multiple universes. He lives on the planet Bethel, he is in love with the Keystone's Daughter and future Keystone, named Trina. Who is a loving and caring woman, one who doesn't have a belly button. She cares for her people and makes sure they are well taken care of. Clea is Trina's best friend, Clea also has a friend named Avalon who is a muse and is only seen by Clea, and anyone he wishes them to see him, or is in need of a muse.
Quade also has been having weird dreams and has been hearing strange voices which makes him think he's going insane. Well come to find out he's not going insane it just two entities that work for the gods named Echo & mimic... they're quite funny I think. But they guide Quade through realizing he has a destiny, and guides him through it. Avalon is Clea's guide to her destiny which, she refuses to acknowledge. Quade is a chosen one, as well as Clea, I think Trina is another one, but not quite sure on that.
Clea is a well known smuggler so most of the book, she's out smuggling goods for a guy named Ryder. Possible enemy? or possible Lover? or possible aly? who knows.
They are chosen to fight the SanFear a formless creature made by the gods in their first attempt at creation. It goes and seeks what it can and sucks the energy out of everything on the planet, and caught in space.
Their destiny is too destroy this, Quade isn't sure he truly believes in his destiny until the Keystone is possessed by one of the SanFear. Then while Clea is still refusing her destiny, Quade is on a mission to find what he needs to rescue the Keystone, and his beloveds father. And Well Trina, she's basically clueless in all this.
At the end of the book, however it comes to where Clea can't get home, and Quade ends up getting the SanFear out of the Keystone, but is being hunted by the Keystones guard for attacking, the keystone. It basically cuts off with Trina sitting with her father, Quade gone no one knows where, and Clea stuck in space cause the planet has been shut down for travel due to the attack on the Keystone.
I hope more is answered in the next book, and I can't wait to see what unfolds next.
