Two Thousand Years
(The Empire Saga #1)
Publication date: December 11th 2018
Genres: Fantasy, New Adult
Two thousand years ago, the Prophecy of Fire and Light foretold the coming of the Queen Empress who would lead the Empire into a time of peace and tranquility. But instead of the coming of a prosperous world, a forbidden love for the Empress waged a war that ravaged the land, creating a chasm between the factions, raising the death toll of innocent lives until the final, bloody battle.
Centuries later, Alexandra, a twenty-two-year-old barista living in Boston, is taken to an unfamiliar realm of mystery and magic where her life is threatened by Reylor, its banished Lord Steward. She crosses paths with Treyan, the arrogant and seductive Crown Prince of the Empire, and together they discover how their lives, and their love, are so intricately intertwined by a Prophecy set in motion so many years ago.
Alex, now the predestined Queen Empress Alexstrayna, whose arrival was foretold by the Annals of the Empire, controls the fate of her new home as war rages between the Crown Prince and Lord Steward. Either choice could tear her world apart as she attempts to keep the Empire’s torrid history from repeating itself. In a realm where betrayal and revenge will be as crucial to her survival as love and honor, Alex must discover whether it is her choice – or her fate – that determines how she survives the Empire’s rising conflicts.
An Addictive and Magically Entertaining Tale that Captured My Heart
An addictive and magically entertaining read, Two Thousand Years by M. Dalto had me glued to the pages from the very beginning and left me wanting more in the end.
I’m over the moon in love with this book and had so much fun. Aside from some minor hiccups here and there, I thought Dalto created a uniquely alluring world, a thrilling adventure, and fantastic characters that not only captured my interest, but also my heart. Her writing style was effortlessly intriguing and engaging. The plot was fast-paced and delightfully entertaining. It had the perfect mix of suspense, action, drama, twists, and humor that had me relentlessly flipping through the pages. The characters were interesting and perfectly flawed. They did their fair share of annoying me, but overall I really did like Alex and Treyan and yes even the villain Reylor. I also really liked the romance. Even if there were a few cheesy moments, I still thought it was utterly swoony and cute. Okay, some parts did make me cringe a little, but most were definitely sweet and adorable. As for the ending, well I can’t say I liked it cause it totally crushed my heart, but it absolutely had me feeling excited about what will what happen next.
Overall, Two Thousand Years was such a joy to read. I was fascinated by the concept of the story, engrossed in the action and drama, and completely smitten with the romance that I didn’t even realize how late I stayed up reading. I enjoyed the world-building, the fantastic plot, the lovable characters, the humor and the feels. It truly was a fun and entertaining book and I would recommend this to anyone in a heartbeat.
