Perseverance (The Athanasian Realm) (Volume 2)
M. C. Colon, author
Many moons have passed since Adicia left the Isle of Wisdom, but finally Garnrin—the ancient who warned of the Towers’ impending destruction—has been found. With Athanasia’s children exhibiting strange new powers and the Mahtma’s influence growing, the Tower Leaders need guidance—but Garnrin isn’t about to just give it away. When they finally return home, Adicia, Gara, and Tavis are followed by a cohort of centuries-old scholars who, in their younger days, proudly served the Towers. These ancients are shocked by what they find: the Towers they once knew are gone. In their place, self-proclaimed masters struggle with apprentice-level spells and corrupt elders bicker among themselves. Even the Tower Leaders are weak and ignorant of their true roles—and above all this chaos, the Mahatma bides her time. But Adicia will not stand idly by while her Towers crumble. She knows time is running out: beyond the borders, the demon-worshippers of Tenebrosity grow restless, and their corruption may be even closer than it seems… Perseverance is the epic sequel to Deceived!, M.C. Colõn’s first fantasy novel. It is a tale of intrigue, action, and romance, and is sure to appeal to fans of fantasy and adventure alike.
