A tale of conquest, dark kings, and daemonic heroes.
A spellbinding story that will enchant you with its plot of ambition, love, betrayal, sacrifice and redemption.
Over fifty years have passed since Daleth the seemingly immortal Witch-King and his army conquered the Ember Kingdom.
Now, with the once fertile lands and its enslaved people dying around him, the Witch-King, driven by his insatiable thirst for eternal youth, prepares his forces to march on the prosperous neighbouring Freestates. It will be the beginnings of a conquest that could destroy nations, bringing death and destruction on an unimaginable scale.
Then, when a peasant huntress whose rare gift was concealed from birth is exposed, it sets in motion a chain of events that could alter the destiny of generations to come.

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.
KINGS & DAEMONS is Marcus Lee’s first book in his The Gifted and the Cursed series.
A brilliant unforgettable high fantasy with incredible world building. Fast paced book that was thrilling to read. Impeccable storyline and stunning magic system that will impress hard core fantasy readers everywhere.
This is one of those books that you just have to read to know what I am getting at. With great execution and precision, it sucks you in and keeps you hungry for more.
Told through multiple POV’s, with seamless narration, the reader sees through the eyes of the three main characters Maya, Taran, and Rakan.
What immediately grabbed my attention in this story was the complexity of the characters. As the characters were raw, honest, and flawed. The authors talent definitely shines when it comes to how interesting and fleshed out her characters are. Atmospheric imagery and vibrant imagery along with the right amount romance.
I enjoyed the dark aspects of the book, it adds great depth to the plot line and twist we’re exciting. I am excited to see the story expand and continue in the next installment.
The is a stellar fantasy we’re the Gifted are the Cursed, the author definitely has made his place in fantasy genre.

Writing hasn’t always been a serious hobby for me … but it has always been there, lurking in the shadows, serving me well when called upon.
As I look back over the years, I realise I was guilty of writing many short stories, as well as poetry, and I’d like to think, that even if they were never intended to be published, they were nonetheless warmly received by the intended recipients.
Then in 2019, I was inspired to write not just a short story, or poetry, but a book. Then, suddenly, one book turned into a trilogy and a labour of love, and it was a love I wanted to share with the world.
So, here we are. The pandemic that put my career in sport on hold also gave me the opportunity to lavish time on my alternative hobby, or if demand dictates my new career.
However, only you, the reader, will decide whether this trilogy, which is still a work in progress, will be the first of many. I genuinely hope so.
Who knows, now these creatives juices are flowing, I might just keep on writing anyway.
Epic fantasy has been my favourite genre since I first read The Odyssey and The Illiad as a seven-year-old. Now it’s my turn to see if I can bring another world to life in the imagination of others.
