Some paths are meant to be walked alone.
Mystic Reborn is the continuation of Paladin Unbound, the
award-winning start of the Archives of Evelium.
After embracing his destiny as the last of the Paladins, Umhra
the Peacebreaker is granted ancient powers by the gods. When
he returns to the ruins of Antiikin to fulfill a promise, he
embarks on a journey that will push the limits of his abilities.
As the Grey Queen’s arrival heralds the fulfillment of a
prophecy that could mean the end of humanity, the kingdom
of Evelium desperately needs a hero. Can Umhra once more
rise to the challenge and save mankind from annihilation?
Mystic Reborn takes everything from Paladin Unbound and just makes it even greater. The stakes seem deeper, the characters have more depth, and we get to see more of the political side of the world of Evangelium. I thoroughly enjoyed my time returning to this world and was able to see a depth to all of the characters that I had been hoping for. It is layered in complexities that will keep a reader turning pages and wanting to know what will happen with the group that we came to enjoy throughout the first book.
The strength of the novel was the characters that are throughout the novel. There are several that will be favorites for many and it is great to see another side of them as they go throughout their lives and the adventure that they are thrust into because of the history of the world. I liked the setup that was taken in order to create the air of mystery, especially as it surrounded a new character. The chivalry that is shown from all characters is great, but can make it a little hard to keep track of some of the side characters when they are all so formally introduced. This does add to the depth of the world in a new and unique way.
The Tales of Evelium are great fun and intriguing stories of adventure. The paladin has returned to the world and is a hero that everyone will cheer for, with his new and great powers!! The political aspect of the kingdom was great and was one of my favorite aspects of this new novel. It was great to see the author take some great new twists that allowed the story to be more intriguing and allow for the complexities of the characters to really come to life. I continue to look forward to all of the tales of Evelium that we are allowed to discover!
Thank you for taking the time to read my review. As always, happy reading and Stay Great!!
