For ages League mothers have told their children terrifying stories about the Black Hats: a sect of murderous women eager to slay anyone who falls into their grasp, always searching for their next victim.Only Sisterhood of Light have been able to counter their evil. When a Black Hat is taken prisoner aboard Captain Davage's ship, the Sisters have every intention of executing her, but they are astounded when the captain refuses to allow it.
Captain Davage has gotten a glimpse of the Black Hat's face, and is shocked. Though no one but a Sister would ever willingly face a Black Hat, he enters her cell.
The woman sitting there bears an exact resemblance to a beloved friend of the Captain's-a friend who is dead. Immediately, the Black Hat known as Sygillis of Metatron plots Captain Davage's murder and, though the Sisters are near, none can protect him from her fury
Is it possible that two sworn enemies may fall in love? Can remorseless evil be redeemed in the end? Good and evil, love and hate, only one side can triumph in The League of Elder: Sygillis of Metatron, a galactic journey full of romance, suspense, and the unexpected.

4 out of 5 Stars
This book was quite enjoyable. I liked getting pulled into this new world. The descriptions and personality traits of the characters are well thought out. The world comes complete with its own possibilities, magic and technology. I rarely got lost in descriptions and was able to keep from getting too muddled up with the large group of characters you get introduced to. It takes a great Author to paint each character so completely that even with a large cast you can still remember which character is which.
It is a very long book to the point I thought I was at the end but it turns out I was barely in the middle (I couldn’t see page numbers or how far along I was through the book on the program I used to read it) It could have easily been split into two books. But even if it had been split into two books I would have wanted to read both of them.
The only thing that I struggled with was occasionally having a back story that interrupts the narrative, (like giving the awesome back story of a weapon in the middle of a lull during a battle) The back stories are really well told and enjoyable to read just once or twice a bit out of place at that particular time.
Overall I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more books by Ren Garcia. I would really recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy, science fiction, or immense worlds to let your imagination loose in.
