Faces of Betrayal: Symphonies of Sun & Moon Saga – Book 1, by Daniele Cella and Alessio Manneschi, highlights the royal wedding of Prince Isao to Ren, the second-born of Nari Clan. The intention of the royal wedding is to finally unite the clans and bring peace to the Empire after many years of struggle and unrest. By uniting the clans of Prince Isao and Ren, the Emperor believes he is bringing peace after a brutal past. Immediately after the wedding, treachery, betrayals, murder and deception are unearthed as the influence of a crimson moon looms heavily over the Empire and its festivities. As our heroes peel back the layers of the events, they uncover a deeply woven plan of deception and betrayal. Dark pasts are uncovered, assassins are exposed, and deep, lasting bonds are forged. Can the Empire be reclaimed by Isao? Will the Empire be lost forever, or will its true leader claim their rightful place?
Layer upon layer of intrigue, betrayal and deceit have been created by Daniele Cella and Alessio Manneschi in the dark fantasy novel, Faces of Betrayal: Symphonies of Sun & Moon Saga – Book 1. Inside the pages of this book is a brilliant web of intrigue that consumes the reader as they follow the protagonists during their battles, struggles and trails, as they attempt to achieve their destinies and save the Empire from certain destruction. At first, I was unsure what path the authors were laying down for the reader to walk along. However, as I read on, a light and clarity formed as the authors cleverly uncovered each character’s journey, and how all were intertwined, making me cheer on Isao in his plan to fulfill his rightful place destined by his father. This is a complex book that links the main characters' destinies together. From the very beginning, I was drawn into the web of lies faced by Isao and Ren. Are they mere pawns in the games created by the evil that has swept over the Empire? This is a fantastic read that has left me wanting more from these authors.
