The Light Unbound by C.S. Wachter

The Light Unbound (The Seven Words Book 4) by [Wachter, C. S.]

The Light Unbound is the 4th and final book of C.S.Wachter’s The Seven Words series. It is YA/Adult Fantasy.

Prince Rayne again falls prey to the evil Sigmund and in his frustration turns his back on the One and what he was called to do. Then he meets a child-like ancient, named Mite, who helps Rayne find anonymity in the Camp of the Forgotten.

In the meantime, his friends try to figure out why Prince Rayne is behaving in ways that are totally contradictory to his true character. Lexi struggles most as she wants to believe in Rayne, but something just doesn’t seem right.

There is also a black cloud approaching across the Cameron Sea, and mind-altering shadows threatening all Ochen. And when members of the Interplanetary Council die from a mysterious illness, the young prince declares himself Imperial Emperor of all Ochen, leaving all of his friends confused and questioning—is this really Rayne, or could it be someone, some-thing else?

This installment of The Seven Words series does not disappoint. It is just as good as the first three and kept me turning pages in anticipation of Rayne’s friends finding out the truth, and also cheering Rayne on to turn back to his faith.

The characters, both old and new, help to move the story along. Some create conflict and tension while others add a bit of humor to the intense story line.

By the end of this book, C.S.Wachter does a great job of making clear connections between all four books and resolving all of the conflicts from all of the story lines. The ending is very satisfying, and many of the characters will live on in my mind for a long time to come. This has become and will remain one of my favorite fantasy series, and if you enjoy good fantasy reads, I highly recommend them.

 

The Deceit of Darkness by C.S. Wachter

The third book in “The Seven Words” series by C.S. Wachter is now available on Amazon in both ebook and print forms. If you haven’t read any of the books in this series yet, you don’t know what you’re missing. These stories are filled with lots of action and plenty of good and evil.

In The Deceit of Darkness, Rayne’s trials continue, but as the One’s Light Bringer, he manages to bring light to Veres, even though he is a “Wanted” man–wanted for a crime he did not commit. As his friends help him get from Veres to Amathea, Travis, a man from the dark part of Rayne’s past, joins them as Rayne’s quest for the scrolls continues.

Throughout the journey, the relationship between Rayne and Lexi grows. Also, new foes, as well as a very dark old one threatens. Will Rayne be able to bring the Light to all of Ochen or will the dark threat of evil stop him?

C.S. Wachter leaves a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of this book–one that, once again, breaks my heart for Rayne. Will he be able to convince his friends to help him now that this new challenge has arisen? I certainly hope so, but I’ll have to wait for the next book to find out!

This series by C.S. Wachter is quite the roller coaster ride. It keeps me turning pages and cheering for Rayne from beginning to end of each of the books. I do not grow bored or weary of the characters or the plot line as C.S. Wachter has definitely learned how to set conflict in motion in her stories to create huge mountains for her main character to struggle to climb.

If you’re a fan of fantasy/speculative fiction, I highly recommend these books to you if you are a young adult or adult, but I will warn you: if you choose to read these books, you will most likely lose sleep until you reach the end of each book because you won’t be able to put it down.
