Jade Gariq is the daughter of a respected Taraqan leader, and the heiress to Gariq Industries—a large, cross-Portal trading company. Her future appears to be set.
Except for one thing: It’s a life that she doesn’t want.
Jade has always dreamed of joining the Traveller Force—the elite Taraqans who traverse the Betwixt, filled with terrifying beasts, and who protect and patrol the Dragonverse. Despite having been Travellers themselves once, Jade’s parents remain vehemently against risking their only daughter’s life. When Jade’s father dies suddenly, she inherits Gariq Industries, its assets, trade deals and social responsibilities.
It seems as though her fate has once again been decided.
Meanwhile, Axel—her close friend and secret crush—disappears without a trace. Then Jade discovers the circumstances surrounding her father’s death are not what they seem— her uncle Zorman suspects foul play. To find the truth and avenge her father’s death, Jade travels to an uncharted world, where she will learn more about her family, herself, loyalty, and betrayal than she ever imagined.
A LoveOZYA novel that really had everything. With fantastic world-building and beguiling characters this was a fabulous novel. With action and and character dynamics that had me absolutely glued to the page.
Jade is a headstrong and enjoyable character that really guided the novel along. Through her need to join the noble Travellers and the horrible circumstances of her fathers death Jade has much motivation and a lot to explore through the novel.
An element I particularly enjoyed was the concept of portals traveling to different worlds. Bringing back memorabilia… kangaroo. You might need to read the novel to find out what I mean. A fantastic novel that swept me up into this amazing fantasy world.
