Malic Sunden is in hell—only not literally… yet. As a warder, Malic is used to fighting demons and squaring off against all kinds of creatures from the pit, but this year he’s facing a new and terrifying prospect: Christmas holidays with his much-younger boyfriend and his family.
He loves Dylan, his hearth, but Dylan’s parents, the Shaws, are another story. They think Malic is a cradle-robber, among other things. At least their neighbor, Brad, seems to like him. Then again, maybe not. When Malic gets offered to a demon who wipes his memory of everything but Dylan’s name, it will take all Malic has to escape his new life in a hell dimension and return to the man he calls home.
Cherish Your Name takes us back to the warder and hearth we met in book two. Malic and Dylan are an established couple now but when they head to Dylan’s home and family for Christmas there are some glaringly obvious difficulties.
Malic is left feeling alone and out of place and after only a few days vows this will be the only holiday he spends with Dylan’s family. He is made to feel unwelcome by people who don’t understand the depth of their relationship instead they see only the age difference and assume Dylan is just involved in a passing fling. Dylan also makes Malic feel unwanted by spending a lot of time with his old friends but as the story unfolds it becomes clear just why Dylan and his friends are so close.
His loneliness sees him befriending the man next door and the jealousy this causes with Dylan is the start of them fixing things with the family. Dylan’s reactions show his family just how much Malic means to him and they soon realise their mistake in the stand offish behaviour. Malic is made to feel welcome at last and accepts their apologies for what they are.
The neighbour next door though has made a deal with the devil or at least a demon and Malic is sucked into his problems. With his memories gone and only the name Dylan on his mind he must fight to remember and get back to the one he loves.
As with the previous book Paul Morey’s narration was perfect and a pleasure to listen to.
