The Drek has resurfaced with a horde of the foulest demons from the abyss. The first battle was a test. The final battle will see the fall of Brit’s most powerful enemy and, finally, the destruction of the Tower of Balance.

Kabriza, the quentranzi demon general has plans of his own. Brit’s hold on the demon is not as strong as he believes, and Kabriza has sent his minions to human civilizations. Through the chaos they create, more demons will enter the world, and when the barrier between the earth plane and the abyss is shattered, the drek will die and the world will belong to the demons.


R.J. Terrell’s Heroes of the first two Takashaniel novels are back in this thrilling, action packed third leg of the trilogy. This time ard we find all those we’ve come to know and love, Kita, Kenyatta, Seung, Malimokuru and a.ll the rest coming together through separate adventures. These adventures will culminate in a final struggle between good and evil on the battlefields surround Takashaniel.

I loved the story. I loved seeing the relationships build more between the characters we’ve already gotten to know. There were many surprises along the way, some good, some sad, and all unexpected.

For a nice blend of fantasy mixing Asian culture with the epic stories like Lord of the Rings and the Magnificent Seven, pick up Mr. Terrell’s Takashaniel series. If there were one drawback, I think it would be that while this can be read standalone, you miss much of the history between the characters. That though is a very small drawback, because the same would happen if you just read Return of the King or Return of the Jedi.

For fans of fantasy I’d highly recommend this. I think you’d enjoy it.

About the Author

About the Author R. J. Terrell was instantly a lover of fantasy the day he opened R. A. Salvatore’s: The Crystal Shard. Years (and many devoured books) later he decided to put pen to paper for his first novel. After a bout with aching carpals, he decided to try the keyboard instead, and the words began to flow. When not writing, he enjoys reading, videogames, and long walks with his wife around Stanley Park in Vancouver BC. Connect with me at: R J Terrell on facebook RJTerrell on twitter R. J.
