ALIGNED: An Immortal Essence Short Story (Immortal Essence 0.5)

Publication: 2nd May 2012
Publisher: Polished Pen Press
Pages: 30
Genre: Science Fiction/Romance
Age Appropriate: Young Adult
ALIGNED takes place several hundred years before EXILED, book 1 in the Immortal Essence series. 

It's the story of Ith and Aetha. Two Eternals who will become the gods of Kelari. 


A half-Eternal boy and an Eternal girl must free millions of tortured souls from a creature whose been feasting on their pain and suffering.
My Thoughts...
This was a short but very interesting start to the Immortal Essence series.
This is a prequel to the series, of the origins of the Gods Ith and Aetha, told from Ith's perspective, it sets up the world from which our female protagonist is from in the first book of the series.
A young boy Ith awakens on a strange, new planet named Kelari, all alone he is befriended by a creature who's name is Mithrith, she takes care of him over the years until her eventual death, alone Ith starts to hear a female's voice in his head, and then one day the girl in question shows up on Kelari , she tells him that they are Eternals and that she was made just for him, and that they are meant to be together.
There is also a fight to defeat an evil God Ramien, to release the captive souls that he has collected.
All in all this was an entertaining and fast read, you don't really need to read it before starting the first book but if you're interested in knowing the history of the God's then definitely give it a go. Or just read it because it is a good story.
I give this 3.75/5.
