Xar & Vichattan - The Throne of Light (The Heirs to Light Series Vol. 1) Kindle Edition
Xar & Vichattan - The Throne of Light (The Heirs to Light Series Vol. 1) Kindle Edition by Bonmedo Tambunan (Author), Lewi Djayaputra (Illustrator), Hendryzero Prasetyo (Illustrator), Eko Puteh (Illustrator), Eve Shi (Translator)
Epic Fantasy Adventure from an Indonesian Fantasy Writer. The first in the Xar & Vichattan - The Heirs to Light series. After the success of its original version in Indonesian, the Xar & Vichattan series has been translated into English in the hope of reaching a wider audience.
It has been seven years since the last priestess of light sacrificed herself in order to exile the Dark army into the Void. Xar, where Spirit power users live, and Vichattan, where Nature magic users reside, are living in peace. But now Dark has managed to break free from the Void.
Unleashing the dark curse upon Xar and Vichattan's supreme leaders, Dark begins its return to earth. Having lost the power of Light, Xar and Vichattan seems trapped in a dire situation.
In the midst of the chaos, Light reveals its heirs, four teenagers aged twelve and thirteen: Antessa, granddaughter of the Temple of Xar's Grand Abbess; Dalrin, son of a Ka-Xar commander; Gerome, son of Vichattan's previous leaders; and Kara, daughter of Vichattan's deceased leaders.
To resurrect the power of Light, the four of them must retrace the route taken by the first heir. Only then would Xar and Vichattan have a chance of winning against Dark and saving their leaders, before the dark curse consumes them and a terrible fate befalls the world. The original titles of the series in Indonesian are:
Xar & Vichattan, Seri Ahli Waris Cahaya: Takhta Cahaya Xar & Vichattan, Seri Ahli Waris Cahaya: Prahara Xar & Vichattan, Seri Ahli Waris Cahaya: Empat Tubuh Statera
To me, Bonmedo Tambunan is a brilliant writer, worthy of notice not only in Indonesia but also on an international scale. For the first time I have found a faultless book: the story is straightforward, but with the potential to magnificently unfold. The book does not smother the reader with grandness; instead it takes the reader along on its journey to unfold. - Bondan Stanislaus - Review for the Indonesian version of The Throne of Light on Goodreads
Two good things about this book: It is exciting and neatly written. There are very few plot holes and the story is satisfying to read. The novel's advantage lies in its straightforward plot, which is handled in an experienced, detailed manner. - Dion Yulianto - Review for the Indonesian version of The Throne of Light on Goodreads
A constantly engaging book, combining sci-fi/fantasy-style narration and profound moral lessons. - Toba Beta - Review for the Indonesian version of The Throne of Light on Goodreads
