Every once in a while, a book comes along that keeps you up at night, even though you have to get up early the following morning. Reign of the Black Flame: The Waterglobe by B.B. Vayk is one of those gems. It is the story of Robert Ground, whose father gets killed by Fire - one of the elemental powers on the planet. Robert, who so far has been more or less a careless young man, is forced to become a different man. And he wants to know why Fire killed his father, and how the earlier death of his mother is involved in this, too. On his journey, he encounters Marian, whom he finds quite charming. Yet he does not know that she holds a dark and dangerous secret. She's out to kill him; she's also one of the most loyal servants of Fire. But will she change her mind about Robert? And what happens when Robert becomes involved in the war between the elements that started because Fire stole the Waterglobe?
I am not a young adult anymore, but from experience I learned that books like Reign of the Black Flame: The Waterglobe by B.B. Vayk aren't just for young adults, but also for the young at heart and the people who still believe in magic - that really doesn't depend on your age. I found the story around the different elements, their war against each other, and how Robert and Marian fit into the whole picture exciting and enchanting at the same time. The words of the book draw you into the story and it's very easy to forget the "real" world around you. It's just the kind of book you need to take a break from reality. It's a fantastic read, and I hope for more from B.B. Vayk.
