The Pentagram, Izumi Earl

Embraced by endless sky. Life—to fight or fly

Every nine years, under the noses of the world, the Vessel War commences. A battle between nine supernatural beings—each infused with a unique magical power, each fighting for the ultimate prize: True Immortality.

The First Class Vessels: Air, Earth, Water, and Fire.

The Second Class Vessels: The Wand, The Chalice, and The Athame.

The Tertiary Class Vessels: The Mage and The Channeler.

Anathame is one such Vessel, one of the highest and most powerful Class—The Channeler, with the ability to channel demonic energies at the expense of her humanity. Fighting under the control of a Master, a high-level Mage, Anathame is willing to do anything to get her Master the power he wishes for.

But one day, Anathame’s simple world and fate is crushed, and she is forced to realize that the ‘facts’ that ruled her world might not be as accurate as she believes… As Anathame struggles to accept her new role in this War, her mind is turning against her, forcing her to listen to the echoes of a past she can’t remember. With her paranoia and forgotten memories pushing her to the brink of insanity, and her demons compelled by an intense bloodlust, Anathame will have to fight both against herself and the other Vessels to have a chance at fulfilling her purpose.

Let the forty-ninth Vessel War begin.

Anathame is a story of betrayal and paranoia, the supernatural and psychological, hiding behind which may be an even darker tale…

I could only describe this book as a twist, assault of brilliance that will keep you under its spell until the last page.

The story of The Pentagram is an incredibly dynamic, unique piece of work that took my breath away on more than one occasion, the pacing of this story was wonderfully written and plotted so that I did not get bored at any given time. I always measure my likeness of a book on whether I find myself looking at the page number; if I do in fact do this I know that the novel  is taking its toll… in other words it is dragging, and I want it to end but The Pentagram was different than this and not like this at all as never once did I find myself referring to the page number and that is a sure sign that this novel is a compelling piece of work that draws the reader in and captivates them to read it quickly and to reach the end of the book very fast.
