Birth Of The Mortokai
Daniel Welsh was born different—and to Daniel, to be different means to be alone. But what if he’s wrong?
Born an albino with a photographic memory, Daniel Welsh never expected to fit in. Yet, when he is approached by Trinity—a young girl who definitely isn’t human—she reveals a whole new world where he might just belong. Ariest is a place where his features aren’t a disability or the mark of a freak, but rather a trait of powerful mages born of human-faerie unions. His father is a renowned war hero and swordsman, his mother is a human doctor, and that makes him a powerful mage that’ll tip the scales. Magic is real—and so is the threat it brings.
Trinity and her father, a battle mage, aren’t the only ones to have discovered Daniel and his gifts hidden in the human realm.
The Shade have awakened.
Enemies to the fae realm long thought dead have been lying in wait for their moment to strike. Young mages like Daniel are the perfect morsel for their starving appetites and they start their killing spree without delay with the nearest unsuspecting mage boy. Daniel cannot sit idly by while monsters take innocent lives, so he will embrace a destiny he is only just beginning to understand… even if it means losing a life that’s finally worth living.

I am a big fan of the new take that young adult fantasy has taken in the past few years.
This book had a lot that made me attracted to it. Being different is something that many of us truly feel which makes you really feel for the main character.
Daniel Welsh is a character that I don’t really forget easily. He has a lot of great qualities. He is strong and is willful but also tou can see the fragility of him as well.
The story was solid and I found that it was easy to follow with no complications for reading. It makes for a great read.
I like the fact that they use a lot of lore from the Faerie world. It also seems very epic with a hint of the more urban style as well. It was done very well and the meshing of two very different styles of fantasy. It was seamless and I really want the next book to come soon.
