An intriguing start to this fantasy series
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Well that was an excellent opener to Jocelynn Drake’s new fantasy series.
It’s not high fantasy, there’s gunpowder, technology and a mix of pseudo medieval elements and urban paranormal, but the combination works perfect to create a new world filled with possibilities.
The four men at the heart of the story are each wonderful and, while Prince Cael is the ‘technical’ hero at this point, I suspect all will have a vital role to play.
The romance is secondary but also helps to drive the plot, in this book it focuses more on Eno and Rayne and I loved them both.
It’s steaming hot when they do finally give in to their feelings and I felt every bit of the emotional connection.
I’m thoroughly enjoying the way things are being explored so far and fully expecting the mini cliffhangers at the end as this story arc is obviously going to be series long.
Roll on November 14th for book two and I really hope the rest won’t be far behind as I’m already drawn into this saga and the people inhabiting it.
