Dark ShoresWhat a wonderful read this was. It’s always nice to find a good book to curl up with that is well written, has good characters, and keeps you entertained for hours. Dark Shores is story told from 2 alternating POVs: Teriana and Marcus, both of whom are trying to do what is best for their people.

In Dark Shores, the East only knows of the East and the West only knows about the West and there is no known way to travel from one to the other. However, when an Empire Senator learns that the Maarin folk know the path to travel to the Dark Shores his lust for power becomes clear. In his desire to conquer the new lands, the Senator takes Teriana’s crew hostage and then proceeds to torture and threaten them for the information. Teriana sees the only hope out of this for her and her people are to agree to his demands. Legatus Marcus, the 37th Legion commander, and his army are given the task to escort Teriana to the Dark Shores and discover this path for themselves. However, the gods have their own thoughts about this plan.
