Jack O'Shea, the crown prince of Gammalon takes refuge in the present world upon directions by the General of the Gammalonian Army as they seek to reinforce soldiers and weapons after a gruesome battle with the Dark Vale army. Stuck in the present world for eighteen years, he has never spoken of his heritage to his children. So when he is recalled to save Gammalon, he least expects that his four children will be journeying with him to the World of Spassenia. As they cross the gates of dimensions, the children enter a world unlike they've ever known-one where magic and power prevail over all who live in it. With perils at every turn they take, they must seek the alliance of the mythical and fabled shadow warriors of the Tsez Xian to win the war against Dravidor. But do they even exist?
3.5 - 4 stars
First, I want to thank the author for giving me the chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
I really liked Dynasty O'Shea but I didn't decided on 4 stars because I have to admit the beginning was tough for me, I struggled to go on.
So many characters introduced all at once, so many names and so many creatures. I was about to through the book away a few times, but as the story continues it starts to flow smoothly and it evolves into a very entertaining adventure.
The world Clarissa created and named Spassenia is magnificent, we have magic, mythological creatures and even animals that can talk all mixed with the battles that are welll portrayed to fill the plot.
Every part of Spasennia is divided into different zones and in each one there is a tribe or clan with unique characteristics and stories, getting to know them was my favorite part.
I enjoyed this book and would like to see what's up next.
