In the world of Saracin, the Goddess damns the earth that killed her two beloved angels and tears it into six realms. As a reminder of their transgression, each person is branded with a stigmata on their palms as testament of their home realm and their separation from the Goddess.
Thirty years later, in the Holy Realm, Jovian, Angelica, Amber, and Joya, quadruplets whose mother died in childbirth, have just reached their 21st spring and are now adults. When terrible visions depicting the downfall of their family stir within Jovian and Angelica, they struggle to make sense of what they have seen while trying to live a normal life.
After Amber is kidnapped in the night, her three siblings are drawn into a dangerous pursuit across the Great Realms to find her. With every step they uncover more mystery surrounding their families past, and something far worse–an ancient enemy that could threaten their hope of ever seeing Amber alive again.
Will this enemy grant the answers they seek, or will she fray the tenuous threads binding them to their old lives?
I have to admit, I struggled a bit with this book. I’m not sure what it was exactly or if it was a few different things. There was a slight format issue that made it difficult to read, but once that was resolved, life got a lot easier!
I think I also struggled because the vocabulary was new to me and it was a long time since I had read a… this type of book. (I have to be honest, I’m not sure what to classify it as. I would say paranormal, maybe fantasy. Amazon seemed to call it a dark fantasy.) Needless to say, it was not a romance that I have been reading much of lately (and I am totally okay with that! I like variety!)
I liked that I was able to piece together bits and pieces of the story line, but that there still were elements of surprise to be had. I didn’t know everything – just enough to keep me pushing forward.
Despite my struggles, I kept turning the page – I couldn’t turn it fast enough. I really got sucked into the book and cant’ wait to continue moving through the series.

About the Author
“Yes, this is all well and good, but what about before? What happened in the world before these characters came into it?” He always knew there was a “before” and as he started wondering about it he got ideas. At first they were little ideas but as he discovered the names for his characters a whole story about them emerged.
Travis started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and he is very happy he did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica’s story has been one wild ride for him. He has also written the Infernal Design series.
He lives in a small town at the base of the Adirondack Mountains and hoofing around my neck of the woods gives him a ton of inspiration for his novels. He loves research, and speculating on different ideas and theories.
