Synopsis: Shakeil Kanish and Larissa Mandeville hit the ground running with The Sigil: A Novel, a stunning, tearjerking, edge of your seat dark urban fantasy that mixes magic, betrayal, friendship, and romance.

A tragic death.
A dangerous obsession.
A desperate mission.

After losing the person most important to him, Lake Smithson stumbles across a letter he cannot explain. A single brush of his finger and he is thrust into the heart of a mystery only to slowly realize that his obsession to be more, will unleash an evil that threatens all he has left.

Faceless creatures, terrifying magic, unlikely friendships, and broken promises lead Lake and his friends to walk a tight line between the mage realm, on the brink of extinction, and the human realm, on the precipice of revelation. Will Lake become the first human to wield magic or will he be the last?


Review: Overall, I thought this book was excellent! The story immediately grabbed my attention and refused to let me go. The book has unique ideas and excellent world building. I also liked the world building and I thought this was the strongest part of the book.


The only issue I had was that the book was a bit too fast paced in some areas, but for the most part I really enjoyed this!


Verdict: Definitely a must have!
