Title: The Emissary Book 1 of The One Great Year Series

Author: Tamara Veitch and Rene DeFazio

Genre: Fantasy/Historical Fiction/Romance

Book Blurb:

When the world collapses from a Golden Age into one of chaos and strife, mankind’s salvation lies in the hands of eternal Emissaries — guardians chosen to protect the secrets of a sacred, ancient civilization and to guide humanity back to enlightenment even as its darkest hour approaches…

A timeless tale of love reborn through the ages.

Marcus has past life memory and his soulmate Theron does not, but the two lovers are bound by an eternal and unshakable bond. As a series of catastrophic events nearly destroys their world, the two along with a chosen few become Emissaries destined, over the course of 13,000 years and through many reincarnations, to lead humanity into an era of peace and prosperity as foretold by the Elders of their race. But the forces of evil have taken possession of one man, Helghul, who relentlessly pursues Marcus and Theron through time, determined to destroy them and ruin all hope for salvation.

The Emissary, Book I in The One Great Year Series, tracks Marcus’s epic adventure across centuries of human civilization to present day, where envoys of darkness gather around them threatening to bury the life-giving secrets of Atitala forever.

Good and evil come to blows and the future of mankind hangs in the balance.

“For every soul there is a theme, a path that must be followed, lessons that must be learned…”

My Review:

Since the beginning of time, humanity has had guardians, eternal beings known as the Emissaries, to guide humanity from destruction and extinction into the next enlightenment. Marcus and Theron are two of the chosen Emissaries to preserve humanity and usher in the next great year, as foretold by their Elders. Not only that, they’re lovers and with each reincarnation, Marcus remembers their love, but Theron does not. This time, though, they have an enemy disguised as a friend whose goal is to destroy them and their plan. Will Marcus and Theron succeed in escorting a new era for humanity or will the forces of evil gain an upper hand? Will Marcus have to choose between duty and his love for Theron?

The Emissary is a beautiful epic fantasy filled with ancient mythology, eternal love and war over good and evil. Well researched, Tamara Veitch and Rene DeFazio bring both past and future worlds to life. I found myself transported to ancient times and a bleak future with ease. The world building, while intricate in details, provides the reader with an immense foundation for future books in the series. This is nothing like I’ve read before and I couldn’t get enough. I can’t wait to read more in the series!

If you love epic fantasy and are looking for something original, pick this up today!
