Being gifted by the gods is one thing.
It's another thing entirely to figure out how to use that gift. Three of them are born at once. Some say they are gifted - Chosen - by the gods. Others say they are so aberrant even the gods cannot stop them from existing. Three of them living at once is unprecedented and dreaded.
Aleena is a gifted warrior who only wants the world to leave her alone. Anlon is an equally gifted warrior who wants the world under his boot. Baezha is a gifted witch whose intentions are unknown, even to her. Both Aleena and Anlon are skilled, proud and jealous. Their rivalry is inevitable, yet Aleena knows Anlon is a brother in addition to a rival.
Jealousy, mercy, forgiveness and vengeance threaten to consume all she loves. Yet what of the third Chosen, Baezha, a powerful sorceress quietly watching the other two? And will the gathering of this triad result in balancing the equation into order or unbalancing it into further madness?
I've always found effective worldbuilding to be absolutely vital for fantasy novels, and that's something that this story greatly excels at. The author takes his time in building up the story with characters like Aleena and others, who are all flawed to a degree that really helps flesh them out.
