The Rarkyn's Familiar

The Rarkyn's Familiar

No permission to buy ($2.99)
An orphan bent on revenge. A monster searching for freedom. A forbidden pact that binds their fates together.

Lyss has heard her father’s screams; smelled the iron-tang of his blood. She’s witnessed his execution.

And plotted her revenge.

Then a violent encounter traps Lyss in a blood-pact with a rarkyn from the otherworld and imbues her with the monster’s forbidden magic. A magic that will erode her sanity. To break the pact, she and the rarkyn must journey to the heart of the Empire. All that stands in their way are the mountains and the Empire’s soldiers—and each other.

But horrors await them on the road, horrors even rarkyns fear. The most terrifying monster isn’t the one Lyss travels with...

It’s the one that’s awoken inside her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fans of Fantasy will love this!
Reviewed in the United States on October 20, 2022
I won this book in a competition. As I'm not normally a fan of fantasy books (although I have read a few), I was trepidatious about liking it. I needn't have worried too much. I tripped over all the names and terms at the beginning but soon got into the swing of it. It is extremely well written. I particularly loved the unusual perspective used at the beginning (ie from the 'monster's' pov rather than the human's), and I stayed sympathetic to the monster throughout.
If you like fantasy then there is a lot here to love. Well done, Nikky, for creating a fascinating world!
