My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book one in an epic journey which covers so many different sub-genres and tropes it really needs a new category šŸ™‚

It’s very much a Sci-Fi/Fantasy hybrid, but it has a very strong element of romance to it too, which forms the bedrock of all that happens.

There are twists and turns that wouldn’t be out of place in a mystery or suspense series, and it’s got a lovely thread of humour throughout too.

I was lucky enough to beta read this for Rebecca, I’ve done the whole series, and I’ll just say you’re in for a wild ride.

Lornyc and Methian are wonderfully drawn characters, their love has already been tested when this book begins but we see how committed they are.

While the main thrust of the narrative in this book is cleared up at the end, there are series’ long story arcs which continue, so bear that in mind.

The world building is superb, the magic system an intriguing one, as are the political manipulations, which becomes a hallmark as the series goes on.

Fast-paced, sweet and steamy, this opener sets you off on a wild ride and it will leave you wanting more.
