Kidnapped by a Custodian
A mercenary for the enslaved
Possessed by a Regal entity
There are only two ways out spiritual enlightenment or death?
It is not until you step out of your bubble, do you realise your world isn’t everything you had imagined.
17-year-old Calista is a highly trained Supreme Warrior from the First Dynasty. A decade after the catastrophic Civil war, she uncovers the truth behind the Sixth Dynasty disappearance. Moments after setting foot on Kimarr, she is kidnapped by a Custodian with a strangely pale skin tone. She enters a world where the inhumane, power-hungry Kutawala enslaves her people. The more Calista delves into this new world, the harder it is for her to resist its temptation. She is thrust into the daily fight to the death and later discovers there is a bigger plan at play. She must become a mercenary for her people while a restless entity inhabits her body.
The man who issued her kidnapping believes she is the one to awaken the Legend of Bluka: the epitome of true power. The one thing she desires more than her father’s approval he can give her: the truth. With the lies unravelled, she must either accept the facts and walk the path of Enlightenment or die trying to survive in the fight to the death.
The only person standing in her way is herself.
Amazon Review by Xcalisha Johnson:
The Masterpiece by Chiemeka Nicely, was indeed that, as it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire read. This book is a mixture of coming of age and fantasy science fiction. Calista the main character is a warrior unlike any other of her race. She is special, but it is unbeknownst to her as she works to get the approval of her father by trying to show him her worth. Identified as a warrior who surpasses all, Calista becomes so much more after she realizes the power of her blue flame, which blazes within her. She comes upon a journey she never saw coming and with the help of others, Calista becomes a masterpiece. I enjoyed reading this story and hope to read more from this author. With this book, she has built a new world and has given insight into who we are as individuals, simply by overcoming our lowest of lows. The Masterpiece was action packed and definitely worth the read.
