The Kult of Salom'Sileyu is a fictional fantasy and mystery book by Zachael T.J. Presgrove. It highlights the story of Ayela Rhexa, a Songrivan divine logician, her trials, adversities, and redemption.

Ayela was an orphan who had come to terms with the fact that she didn't need her parents. She applied for citizenship when she became an adult. Ayela had known loss throughout her life. After her first lover, Gean meets an unfortunate end at the hands of an aethrill attack; She picks up her life and forges ahead. Along the line, she meets the beautiful Rhaja, and things seem to have begun to fall into place. However, when a second aethrill attack happens, claiming Rhaja's life, Ayela starts to question everything she thought she knew. Throughout this book, the readers will see plots and divisions, cults and kults, and the fight against good and evil.

The ominous title and cover of this book drew me to it. I wanted to discover what it meant and how it all added up. The book had seven episodes and thirty-nine chapters, with each of the episodes discussing critical aspects of the book. The story was written as a third-person narrative focusing on different characters throughout its length. The author's descriptions were very realistic and immersive. He had this way of raising emotion in the reader through written words. I appreciate that, for it helped me understand and flow with the book's rhythm.

My favourite character was the protagonist, Ayela. I loved her charisma and determined spirit for someone who has been through a lot in her life. She is truly a survivor. Tallie's cunning habits were quite surprising. I loved the characters in this book; their unique names were something I liked. The grammar usage was fair, and I have no doubt everyone would comprehend just fine. The plot was both simple and complex; it was unpredictable as well. The events that unfolded throughout the story were unanticipated.

The only issue I had with this book was the placement of the pronunciations at the end of the book. Some readers might see it once they have finished reading. Apart from this, I had no issues with this work. I spotted two minor errors; however, I believe this book was professionally edited.

The Kult of Salom'Sileyu receives 5 out of 5 stars for the positives I've highlighted above. It was a simple but exciting book to read. I recommend it to readers who enjoy fantasy, mystery, and action thriller books.

These types of books are always interesting to me. One of the things that I always have trouble with are the pronunciations of the uncommon words. The chart you spoke of would be helpful to me.

This is an interesting review. I wonder what culture or country speaks the language in which the names are written. I’ll love to read if I see it around. Great review!
