Book Review: The Realms Thereunder

I received this book around the same time that I received the book in the previous review. Sadly, life got in the way and this really great book got set aside and forgotten..until now!

"Ancient legend tells of an army of knights that will remain sleeping until the last days.

The knights are waking up.

A homeless man is stalked by a pale, wraithlike creature with a mouthful of needle-sharp teeth. Maimed animals and a host of suicides cluster around a mountain in Scotland. And deep beneath the cobbled streets of Oxford, a malicious hoard besieges a hidden city.

Freya Reynolds is a university student with a touch of OCD and an obsession with myth and folklore. Daniel Tully is living rough on the streets of Oxford, waging a secret war against an enemy only he can identify. Years ago, they found themselves in a world few know is real. They have since gone their separate ways and tried to put that adventure behind them.

But the mythical world is now bleeding into our reality—a dark spiritual evil that is manifesting itself in forgotten corners of the British Isles. Alex Simpson is a Scottish police officer who specializes in hunting mythical creatures. Together, they must confront the past, the present, and points beyond to defeat the ultimate threat to humanity.

Nothing they've seen so far prepares them for what awaits . . . in The Realms Thereunder."

Doesn't that sounds exciting? It is! This book is filled with characters that are both likable and at times, lovable. You not only follow along with Daniel and Freya on their present trip but right along side, you learn about their previous trip and a quest that doesn't seem to be finished. The book isn't a difficult read and my biggest "frustration" was that when I reached the end, I didn't have the next book of this trilogy on hand to find out what happens next!

I can certainly recommend this book and hope that all of you check it out, even though it took me forever to tell you about it.
