Sometimes you have to make the best with what life gives you, even if it’s something you don’t want.

Troy has been handed an ugly hand by life. He was kidnapped, his DNA was tinkered with, and he doesn’t know what or who he is anymore. Even if the pride has accepted him without questions, he hides in his room, scared of what he could see in the other peoples’ eyes.

Emery is used to a lonely life. He lost his family years before to the Krsnik wars, and he’s happy to have found new friends within the pride. He’s even happier to find out his mate lives in the mansion, even if Troy makes approaching him difficult.

Troy pushes Emery into mating, scared that Emery will flee once he finds out just how wrong Troy has become. He doesn’t, though, not even when something incredible, something no one could have forecasted, happens. Will they be able to face their unsure future together, or will one of them crumble under the pressure?

My View:

Troy is a story all about acceptance. It is about celebrating differences. It is about embracing who you are, finding love for yourself, and accepting the love of others.

Now that all the “original” members of the Whitedell Pride have been mated up, we are starting to see the refugees from the Glass research company find their happily ever afters. In some cases, such as that of Troy the former human male who is now half-harpy.

His mating with Emery was somewhat of a quick decision, made out of a desperate need to be accepted. He still can’t accept himself, and Emery is determined to help change that. They are good for each other. We get to see Emery accept both halves of Troy and make him fell safe.

Of course that safe feeling can’t last for Troy when the unexpected happens. That unexpected also leads to some further complications, which I think will be further addressed in future installments, when his past finally catches up with him.

Troy’s story is sad, sweet, and most of all hopeful. It is a great addition to this world.
