Sora can move as silently as a ghost and hurl throwing stars with lethal accuracy. Her gemina, Daemon, can win any physical fight blindfolded and with an arm tied behind his back. They are apprentice warriors of the Society of Taigas—marked by the gods to be trained in magic and the fighting arts to protect the kingdom of Kichona.

As their graduation approaches, Sora and Daemon look forward to proving themselves worthy of belonging to the elite group—but in a kingdom free of violence since the Blood Rift Rebellion many years ago, it’s been difficult to make their mark. So when Sora and Daemon encounter a strange camp of mysterious soldiers while on a standard scouting mission, they decide the only thing to do to help their kingdom is to infiltrate the group.Taking this risk will change Sora’s life forever—and lead her on a mission of deception that may fool everyone she’s ever loved.

Get it now! 
Welcome to the last stop of the Circle of Shadows blog tour!! In a new fantasy world crafted by Evelyn Skye, there are gifted individuals known as Taigas who were blessed with magic from the gods and swore an oath to protect Kichona. The magic system of this book is really what gives it flare. I enjoyed reading about the magic and how it manifested throughout the story depending on who wielded it. In this world, your magic is a reflection of your personality. Taigas are assigned a name when they become taiga's apprentice. I found these names to be super unique to each character. Our main characters Sora and Daemon are named Spirit and Wolf. Sora named Spirit for her untamed and reckless spirit. She has a knack for not listening to authority and causing trouble. Daemon is named Wolf because of how his brute physical fighting skills outweigh his ability to perform magic. After immersing myself into this world for a good few days, it got me thinking...

What if I was a taiga in this world? 

If I was a taiga, my name would probably be Sea. My taiga name is supposed to be a reflection of myself, and I believe like the sea, I am free and also it's related to my love for marine biology and the ocean. If I could only conjure up one word to describe me, it would be Sea.

As for powers, Katara's water-bending skills immediately come to mind. I've always wanted the power to control water and possibly transform myself into marine creatures. Some people want to fly and some want to read minds, but I would like to have the ability to shape water and throw it at people. I would also totally love the ability to breathe underwater for hours on one breath.
