Blog Tour for Innovera Yakov: The Journey of a Thousand Eyes

Welcome to the Innovera Yakov Blog Tour!

Innovera Yakov: The Journey of A Thousand EyesInnovera Yakov: The Journey of a Thousand Eyes
by Kia Garriques

Be prepared to immerse your self in a world where falling in love could cost you your life and nothing is as it seems.

Innovera Yakov – The Journey of A Thousand Eyes is the first installment in an action-packed fantasy drama where characters with powers of healing and destruction live, love, compete and disappear without a trace while they are being prepared for the Journey.

What is the Journey? What happens to the ones who do not return? What unspeakable, stomach-churning things can happen to them there?

Even Ayana the Great Healer, Krave ‘The Golden One’ and the powerful Blu Tara are terrified of it.

This is an imaginative story, set in a very unique world.

That said, there were times when I was fairly confused. A large part of the book was spent setting up things for future installments of the story, which is fine, but it seemed to take away from the "here and now" of the plot. The thing I struggled with the most was not having any idea how much time was passing. At one point it was referenced that a large amount of time had passed, yet nothing had given me the impression the action hadn't taken place in a matter of weeks, if not days.

Overall, this was a good read that left me wondering what was coming next.

3.5/5 stars
