Can the insular Tari dreaming in the secret land of Ermora be awoken before the demon fire consumes them? And can a Melded Child bring harmony in clasped hands before it is too late?
Read an Excerpt
Mortal enemies, Alex Verday and Serge Madraga, find themselves trapped hiding from a Death Angel in a cave beneath a waterfall.
Outside something cackled, a loud sound of mad amusement. With a sharp intake of breath, the Mirayan pressed himself against the ground and covered his head. Alyx looked at the waterfall. Something was moving beyond it, a grey blue shape that leaned forward and peered in through the curtain of water, just like a person would. Looking for her. She froze, struggling not to panic.
A grey-blue hand thrust through the water and the creature hissed and pulled back obviously stung by the touch of it. A sulphurous stench filled the cave.
There came a hissing intake of breath and suddenly a blast of orange fire bloomed outside. A cloud of stinking steam filled the little cave, but there was still a lot of water falling over the opening. The creature let out a predatory screech of annoyance and was gone. As the steam settled damply over them, she could hear it back again just beyond the thin barrier of the waterfall. She heard its hand thrust through the water again, smelt the sulphurous stink of it, heard it hiss. But this time the hand did not withdraw. Claws scrabbled on the rock surface at the front of the cave, reaching out towards them, slowly deliberately scratching along the wall, feeling for them. Surely it could not reach them back here.
Alyx squeezed her eyes shut and fought down an almost overwhelming urge to scream.

The Melded Child is a wonderful magical tale. I found the plot and storyline to be fascinating. It is not a light read and one that a reader needs to pay close attention to what is happening. There are a lot of characters involved that did confuse me at times trying to keep up with and keep straight. But overall, the book was enjoyable.
I give The Melded Child three and half stars. I look forward to more by the authors in the future. It is definitely worth a read.
I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
