Zanthia: The Shadowed Army by Nicklous P Adams II is the second book in the Adonai’s Prophecy series, which picks up after the Second Great War and the defeat of Nero, a creature of pure evil. Three long-time friends, Micah, Tristan, and Saphyre, together with Micah’s true love Akyri, were instrumental in the downfall of Nero and the unification of the Three Kingdoms. Now, just when they believe a peaceful future awaits, another even more malevolent being has arisen in Micah’s form, called Azrael. It becomes clear that Azrael is intent on breaking Micah in every way and unleashing destruction upon the world on an unimaginable scale. Many questions haunt Micah in his quest to once again save the Kingdoms and those he loves from annihilation; questions whose answers may determine the fate of all.

In Zanthia: The Shadowed Army, Nicklous P Adams II has created a story of wonderful adventure and imagination, one that plunges the reader into worlds both rich and wondrous. These worlds are populated by humans and creatures of great diversity, with matching personalities that are accurate and consistent. The relationships were nicely woven, particularly between the main players Micah and Akyri, and Tristan and Saphyre. This was especially evident during times when the couples were separated and under duress. In addition, the introduction of the seven levels of existence, and the conflicts within these other levels, provides ample scope for future adventures. This is a story that will engage those interested in adventure, romance, action, and mystery on a grand scale. A very good adventure.
