Title: Children of Discord: Second book of the Gastar Series
Author: CC Cole
Many reviewers will tell you that you need to read the earlier books in a series in order to enjoy
and/or understand later books in the series. Don’t you believe them! And if you want proof, just
pickup and read “Children of Discord: Second book of the Gastar Series.”
Children of Discord plops you down on a planet in the future or some other planet in our galaxy,
a place nervously at peace for a few hundred years after wars nearly destroyed everyone.
Swords and knives, magical and otherwise, are the weapons of choice to combat vampires and
other mythological creatures.
Into this mix comes two children, Shevata and her arch rival Goldeon, teens hundreds of years old
and dating back to the old war to settle old scores and put everyone at risk as they do battle.
Shevata is summoned back to Gastar by a group of unlikely allies. The growing city has forgotten
much of its dark history, and the clash of the two dangerous children place the unknowing people
of the city in danger.
About the author
C.C.Cole, is the author of the Gastar Series, a series of four novellas when completed, follow
teen assassin Shevata as she journeys through the history of her home city of Gastar to seek
redemption for her past actions and to regain her soul.
The first novella, "Act of Redemption" was published in 2009. The second novella, "Children of
Discord" was published in 2011.
“Mississippi is my home,” says Cole, “I live a suburban life with my family. Schooled in the
medical field, along with writing, other interests include martial arts, adopted greyhounds,
Medieval and 20th century history.
With this being a novella, it is a fairly quick read and for many readers because of the intrigue
and the desire to find out “what happen next,” the story could be read in one or two reading.
There is a bit of “back and forth” in the time line but I didn’t see this as a problem because much
is revealed and Cole doesn’t trip over her intricate plotting.
For fans of dark fantasy and don’t mind seeing some of the “good guys” die, I Highly
Recommend Children of Discord.
