Morgorth is known as the Dark Mage of the North. Now all he feels is light and love as he pursues a budding relationship with Aishe, a dialen of the Ravena tribe. Morgorth hardly believes his good fortune. He has allowed Aishe into his home, his bed, his heart. He laughs more, smiles more, and feels happier than he ever has. He should have known such bliss never lasts. The Council of Mages, the ruling body over all mages on Karshian, knows he has Rambujek, a major stone of power — won from a sorcerer. They also know his destiny — to become the Destroyer. Fearful, they send two emissaries to take the stone from Morgorth, using whatever means necessary, including tricks, threats to those under his protection, and the threat of war. A war Morgorth knows he would never survive. Conflict arises between him and Aishe. Their tenuous relationship is put into jeopardy, and their very beliefs are put into question. Morgorth doubts that he should keep Aishe in his life. Can he protect Aishe from his enemies, as well as the monster he might become?
This book was such a awesome addition to this series!
So with this book you get more of Morgorth and Aishe together which I loved! Morgorth is fighting the darker side of himself while two mages come to take the stone of power from him. The love between these two men grows so much stronger in this book while they face fighting these two mages, one of which tries to kill Morgorth.
I have to say I loved the world in this story this author created! With this book you learn so much more about this world and the creatures who inhabit it. You also meet different characters in this story to some you will like and some you will not. So you get action which had me on the edge of my seat through this whole book and steam too which was so hot between these two men. But also I have to say I love the characters Morgorth and Aishe this author created and of course the creatures too. I can not wait to read the next book in this series!
So I will leave this review with I 100% loved this story and would definitely recommend this book!
