Welcome to the teeming world of Wildlight, where the Wing of the terrible Night is only a fading memory. Nightmares are had by all at one time or another, but to those who claim the decency of living, breathing existence, daybreak always comes to end it. Notwithstanding, Her fiercely loyal followers have seen through the shrouds of centuries-old mystery a way to free their dark empress, the Night Wing, from Her eternal imprisonment in the Forgotten Realm. All that’s way over the head of Jade Star, a kiffen on the run just getting by picking pockets. It’s certainly not a threat she can face alone…
Dasha is a woman who stops aging at 25 because of a curse hanging over her family. This is just a side effect of witchcraft, the aim of which was to force Dasha and all women in her family to suffer from love and from never being loved in return.
“They will live with that unrequited love, which would be a torture. It will turn into their pain, obsession and sickness. Time will not heal them. Minutes and years would stretch to lengthen their sadness. There will no escape from love. Exhausted by that love, they will be seeking a way out. There will be just one escape, just one…”
Dasha is trying to find a way to stop the witchcraft. She witnesses wars, and leaders who come and go, promising new horizons and tearing off the thin threads of hope. To solve her mother’s secrets she has to connect the dots between past and present, traveling to various cities and even countries. Her sister Anna is suffering because of love and Dasha herself cannot escape her fate. Can she beat the darkness and change her life? Will she be able to find happiness in the ocean of suffering and frustration?
Readers who are moved by a combination of fantasy, drama and romance will find this book interesting. The concept of “Love and Void” was partly inspired by “The Enchanters” (1973) by a French writer Romain Gary.
