Hounded by watchmen, trolls, goblins, and a relentless bounty hunter, 13-year-old Jetsam dreams of the day he’ll no longer have to run for his life.
In the mountain city of Dwim-Halloe, Eadriel and Elvar were born twins to teachers at the city’s revered School of Magic. When the new king outlawed magic, the boys’ parents were murdered. Their deaths forfeited the twins' magical birthright and made them homeless fugitives.
Rescued by an orphan gang, the fleeing twins were nicknamed Flotsam and Jetsam. To survive as outcasts, the orphans scavenge and pilfer nightly. Their last risky foray sent them fleeing into an unfamiliar cavern. Now the boys are lost deep underground where they encounter a strange beast that will change their lives forever and begin a harrowing journey for their ultimate survival.
Crimson & Cream recounts Jetsam’s adventurous tale of flight and discovery as the fugitive orphan unravels his tortured past while securing his tenuous future.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Amazing and wonderful fantasy story full of adventures and journeys! C.M. Skiera is a brilliant writer who brings his audience to the edge of their seats with this heroic tale of orphan twins who have to grow up fast to face the chaotic and magical world around them.
I couldn't get enough of this story and I am sure you won't either as the twins nicknamed, Jetsam and Flotsam set out to right the wrong of their parents death. They encounter many obstacles in their way but even in the darkest of times manage time and time again to face the impossible odds against them.
What I loved most about this story was the emotion felt with every turn of the page. C.M. Skiera creates such a dramatic feel to the story that you can't help feeling a part of it, you can't help but laugh, cry and feel angry along with the characters because they become a part of your being and you a part of the story itself.
If you haven't read this it is a definite read for all you out there! I highly recommend this one!
