Nemecene: The Versal Arts by. Kaz LeFave

Disclaimer: This review is based on the thoughts and opinions on this ARC that was sent to the writer of this blog. Please respect her thoughts and opinions on the writing that the author has released. Please and thank you!

In this episode, we find Elize and Keeto now fugitives and living among the Gatlins that have been for their innovations to help human kind may have some treason from within. After her death experience and leaving it behind, Elize has some anxiety left within and Keeto’s journal is the only way of answering her waking questions that she may have. While living in this village they are officially introduced to Segari, Zefarion’s mother, and get to know her while their best friend is missing.

During the time in their village, Keeto is continued to be trained in the Versal Arts by Izonnis, who was the pretend scholar at the Museum of Antiquities for some time and has challenged him during his practice and be able to understand who or what they are. Just when they have serenity in this village the Unification factions come and disrupt it by coming after Elize and Keeto as their bounty. Will they escape this time?

Thoughts: I was able to read this with a better speech rate because I started reading with a newer app on my I Pad. During the pandemic there was a sale on the Voice Dream Reader which is another PDF reader app for visually impaired people can use and enjoy books even in other formats. I was glad to try this out with this episode of the series because it felt more clear when it read. I will be using this app for any remaining ARCs Kaz may have as I keep on reading this series.

I did like the slight time skip in between this episode and the last because I thought that something worse may have happened after the last episode but at least the both of them got to live somewhere more peaceful than and as advanced as Edinburg was.

I’m glad that Stitch’s mother behead a bigger role this time because when she was introduced in one of the earlier books I felt it was kind of short and I thought something had happened to her that caused Stitch to act as he does but with him missing in this one and how Elize hopes to find him I am not sure if he is alive or dead like how they thought. I did find everyone’s interactions more fluid because it feels that this episode is more of showing some of the truth but not all of it. Elize is trying to get over her anxieties after being in that dream state last volume and then Keeto is trying to get over those troubles by writing it down but Izzy, since they called him that in the beginning, wants Keeto not to focus on that so much. Even though Keeto still makes his journal entries and I’ve been noticing how he has been trying to help Elize but Izzy always had him training to focus on what’s around him and not in the journal due to how traumatic it was the past eighteen months. I did notice how Keet’s attitude did change since not only he is going through some fierce training yet I notice that he wants to go and just stay in the cabin because it’s safe, he doesn’t want to be at the evening rituals in the area, he wants to go back and write in his journal more despite Elize always pulling him into these things. It’s like he wants to stay in one place but he needs to get out in order not only be better about himself but also stay strong for Elize after her death experience.

Now onto Izzy! This guy was someone I did not notice while reading the first few books but when the description for the book mentioned who he was I think I remembered. I felt while reading this book that he was a bit of a jerk but he was doing his duty for everyone in the village as their main guy. I do notice he has a love/hate relationship with Nepharus and Nithruyu the most since they are still protecting the twins from being taken by the Unification factions even though he thinks they will be taken anyways. I do like his interactions with Keeto the most since he has that idea he wants Keeto be stronger in the mind and just focus on his surroundings. I did like that one of the challenges he gave to Keeto was to climb the mountain on his own which did cause him to be late for the festivities. If I were to pick anyone to voice this guy, I picture him to be a bit young maybe Dante Basco would fit since I kind of have a bit of a Prince Zuko vibe off of him.

Rating: 5 Shooting Star Paws Out of 5! I feel as though that this book is starting to develop the story even more as we keep reading each character’s side. I feel with the next episode that we may finally get to see Stitch again or see what had happened to Elize and Keeto as in this is what happened next instead of just a time skip. Who knows, the writer is the one who weaves the story and Kaz has been doing a really good job. I feel with each book I am there in the room for each moment as the story goes on. Even with Keeto’s journal I feel the pen he is using and hear his thoughts as he puts them down and with Izzy having his talks with Nepharus and crew. We have to see what happens next with the story and how Episode 6 would look!

Well guys that is it for this review! I’m glad to read another volume in this series and hope to continue with it. With the next few books they will be from the same series as in one after the other from another author. Until next time!
