Readers who have yet to come into contact with Michelle Meraki’s novels are certainly in for a treat and have a great deal of catching up to do with the release of Twilight Of The Empire. Her second foray into the realms of Fantasy fiction she continues to stamp her trademark prose on the genre whilst reminding us how enjoyable Fantasy fiction can be when penned by a gifted author. With great characters and Meraki’s wonderful way of describing settings she fully immerses her readers in her imagined world with a narrative that achieves a fine balance between dialogue and action whilst maintaining the same level of momentum, suspense and intrigue she delivered in Rising Shadows. Lira and Megara return with their fates further entwined in the fabric of the empire along with several intriguing new characters who are given just the right amount of back history, not too little and not too much, with distinctly darker overtures as events evolve and merge together to create a story that is rich and highly satisfying. One of honour and glory, duty and loyalty, courage and resolve, all coated in a wonderful blend of magic that plays to the best-loved elements of this ever popular genre .
A compelling Fantasy novel that’s perfect for fireside reading Twilight Of The Empire is sure to meet the expectations of Meraki’s readers whilst enticing many new followers to her books. It is highly recommended.

Michelle Emberstar Meraki (1367 L.H.) was the most skilled path creator to new worlds in all Jérin. Her many research expeditions contributed valuable information to the academic societies of Argara. She explored many realms with her inventions and each quest was successful; until she forged the mirror-ring. The mirror-ring was Michelle’s grandest invention; it opened a portal to a planet in a distant galaxy. Overcome with wanderlust Michelle ventured through the portal but in her eagerness, she forgot to secure her way back home. Her nemesis, Xelara Nephane, snuck into Michelle’s workshop, overpowered her beloved, Balthazar, and destroyed the star shards that stabilised the portal. Michelle realised her error too late and found herself stranded on the foreign planet called Earth. Yet fortune favoured her and kind, loving people took her in. They cared for her as their own and Michelle became part of their family. Since people thought her insane for telling her stories Michelle’s family encouraged her to write them in books. Some might call Michelle’s books fantasy novels but writing is the only way she kindles hope to return to her beloved Balthazar and Jérin.
