Synopsis: Trained as an elite fighter and educated in the ways of the elves, Nuriel "Rie" Lhéthannien has worked decades to be accepted into the High Court messenger service. It's a simple enough occupation, but in a realm where humans are treated as little better than slaves, it's a position she'll do anything to protect.
On a routine delivery in the Human Realm, Rie is attacked by assassins from the enemy Shadow Realm and framed as a traitor. Facing execution at the hand of an unmerciful king, she evades capture and crosses the portal into enemy lands to prove her innocence.
Surprising allies arise from the shadows, assisting her search and uncovering secrets she didn't know she kept. With the risk of discovery lurking at every turn, Rie must use every weapon in her arsenal to uncover the truth behind the attack. If she fails, death will be the least of her worries.
Featuring a lowly human caught between two great faerie realms, a dark elf prince with unnatural fire magic, a blood sidhe merchant’s son with ambitions beyond business, and a mischievous swarm of pixies, Sanyare: The Last Descendant is a New Adult coming of age adventure you won't want to put down.
Review: Rie has been raised as a human in the world of the Sidhe High Court. Rie is a messenger, a position which few humans ever hold, and she guards her position with tenacity. When she is sent on a routine delivery to the Human Realm, she’s attacked by Dark Elves from the Shadow Realm. When she is declared a traitor to the High Court, she must travel to the Shadow Realm in order to find the true traitor and clear her name. SANYARE: THE LAST DESCENDANT is superb! This is a beautifully written story with amazing characters and a good plot. Rie is a strong character, even through some very troubling revelations which could have shaken her from her path. SANYARE: THE LAST DESCENDANT flows well and will definitely keep readers interested until the very end. It does appear there will be a sequel, which I am eagerly anticipating!
