📖PLOT SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS📖
Pain is inescapable. Suffering is a choice.
Azrael, the Angel of Death, knows pain. The deaths of his mother and sister, as well as his harsh experiences in the Watch Guard at age twelve, have brutally shaped him into the most feared assassin in all of Pandaren. Azrael’s role as a Hunter requires him to search for those with magic, called Spectrals, which he is happy to do. Hunting allows him to pursue his true goal—exacting revenge on the Fire Spectral who altered the course of his life.
Azrael’s obsession with revenge and power leads him to undergo an experimental procedure that gives him magic, but when this procedure has unexpected and dangerous side effects, he becomes a liability to the Hunters and the Watch Guard. Rescued by the people he has sworn to eliminate, Azrael finds himself questioning everything he once believed as years of secrets and lies are exposed. His very nature is challenged as he battles unfamiliar emotions and navigates relationships that contradict the heart of a killer.
Can the Angel of Death have a conscience? Can Azrael?
Chasing the Darkness is an escape to a land of magic, sword fights, and love, with memorable characters who must face the darkness within and journey down a path of destruction or redemption.
I was asked if I wanted to read this book and of course I accepted. I am so glad that I did. It had the perfect blend of magic, suspense, battles, friendship and love – what more could you ask for?!
I loved the characters and the personal journey of the main character. At times it was quite violent, but without that I don’t think that the story would have been as good as it was. It added drama and suspense and you never knew whether a character would really take it to the next level or not!
The settings were good, but they were only lightly touched upon. This enabled the reader to focus on the characters and what was going on with them rather than marvel at their surroundings! What I particularly liked however was the analogy of the sunset and the chasing away the darkness which was mentioned a few times throughout the story. It linked the story back to the title and gave you as the reader hope for the main character.
Overall it was a well written, unputdownable, book that kept my interest from beginning to end and I was sad when it ended! I highly recommend reading it!
