When Teyth was but a child, a cruel prince took over his village, building a great granite tower to rule over the folk. Greedy and capricious, the man will be the bane of Teyth’s existence as an adult, but as a boy, Teyth is too busy escaping his stepfather to worry about his ruler.
Sold into apprenticeship to the local blacksmith, Teyth finds that what was meant as a punishment is actually his salvation. Cairsten, the smith, and Diarmuid, his adopted son, are kind, and the smithy is the prosperous heart of a thriving village. As Teyth grows in the craft of metalwork, he also grows in love for Diarmuid, the gentle, clever young man who introduces him to smithing.
Their prince wants Diarmuid too. As the tyrant inflicts loss upon loss on Teyth and Diarmuid, Teyth’s passion for his craft twists into obsession. By the time Teyth resurfaces from his quest to create immortality, he’s nearly lost the love that makes being human worth the pain. Teyth was born to sculpt his emotion into metal, and Diarmuid was born to lead. Together, can they keep their village safe and sustain the love that will make them immortal?
This book was so beautiful but at the same time so painful… Just sitting her writing this review thinking about this book makes me want to cry again. It was so much these two went through I just can’t even think of the words to even describe how much I loved this book!
This author built such a amazing world with such awesome characters but also some very bad ones two.
Everything Teyth went through when he was a child, then to watch him grow to a man in a better place to have everything taken from him again by one cruel man.
Then Diarmuid to be so protective and strong with Teyth after everything he had been through also.
Then there was the ending when I really cried so much for everything that happened.. The pain poor Teyth went through then everything that happened after that. This book was so beautiful and painful with so much hurt but also sweet moments for these two also.
I want to leave this review with I 100% loved this book!
I would definitely recommend this book!
