I, Ervyn Morryés of the Black Mountain clan, know all about control.
As the only fair-haired Dark Elf in the Highlands, I had to learn to control my fists and my temper in the face of derision.
To become the best archer amongst my peers, I had to learn to control my breathing and my movements.
But the day the half-breed called Lochan Féyes arrived at the training camp, my discipline faltered. Because—sweet gods—when I am around that aloof, blue-eyed assassin, my need is uncontrollable.
Release date: January 20th
This was a fun introduction to the world Kasia Bacon has created for this series. Sadly, it was too short for me to really get a good feel of it.
I liked what I read, and I liked the characters, but I would have liked a bit more of development, some more bones on the story. The language was beautiful, the POV consistent, but some of the descriptions were so detailed that they felt “cloying” to me.
I believe that this would have worked better for me if it’d been more focused on the characters and the way the relationship develops. As it is, they have some beautiful and warm encounters, but everything passes too quickly among a sea of descriptions.
But I’m intrigued, and I’ll be reading the next instances of this series, that’s for sure.
