Title: Agate: Then and Now (Stones of Power #4)
Author Name: M.D. Grimm
Publication Date & Length: August 5, 2015 – 253 pgs
Time travel. For mages, it violates their number one rule: what the Mother has written, let no one unwrite. The Mother writes the destinies of the creatures on the world of Karishian. If her writings were undone, it is feared that Creation itself could be undone. The Dark Mage Morgorth takes this rule to heart, but there are others who do not.
Morgorth is about to claim a stone of power when it is stolen from him by a female mage he hasn’t seen in decades. As they struggle for the stone, she activates it, and Morgorth is unwillingly plunged into another time and another place. It isn’t long before he realizes what time he’s found himself in and there are a few familiar faces.
Most notable is a much younger version of Aishe. His mate.
Living with a tribe who will be massacred, caring for a young lad who will become his mate, and fighting a battle against a mage who can travel from past to future at a whim; Morgorth’s life has never been easy but now he must contend with the will of the Mother. Unable to change the future and the tragedies of Aishe’s life, he must decide what his role in his mate’s past will be, and ask himself one vital question: how does one defeat time?
This book was another really awesome addition to this series!
So with this book we find Morgorth going back into time when he tries to get a stone away from a female mage who tries to steal it. With this book we get to see how deeply Morgorth really cares about Aishe and loves him. I do not want to go to much more into this story because I really do not want to spoil this book for anyone else it was just so good and you really need to read this for yourself.
I will say I love this world this author created. With each book in this series we discover more and more about this world and the creatures along with people who live there. I loved the way M.D. Grimm wrote these characters in this book and this story. I was grabbed from the start of this book and could not put this book down until the end. There was so much action and on the edge of your seat moments in this book along with steam between these two men.
So I leave this review with…. I really loved this story and would definitely recommend this book!
