Sweeter than strawberry, darker than blackberry, better than please.

Son of the Wood God, son of a mortal woman, Myrddin has lived a carefree life for sixty years. Now, with his mother dead, the wilderness that has sustained him is an overflowing well of powers he can no longer control. Sent by his father to seek someone who can help him, the one Myrddin finds is a nameless stranger, whom he calls Kas.

Kas, so named, is still what his nature demands he be. He is Death—its essence and its king…its master, and its open gate. Since the first death that came into this world, he has been alone, essential and solitary—until Myrddin. For his sake, Kas aids in building the Rite of Spring, and in the process learns love…and loneliness.

Between life and death, want and need, there is just enough space for a new beginning. The question is how it continues—and whether it ends.

Publisher’s Note: This book is linked to the Eight Kingdoms series.

My View:

Deathless is part of the same world as the Eight Kingdom series. It is a side book about the initial meeting of two of the key players in the series proper. I definitely recommend you read the whole series along with this novella.

I was pulled into Kas and Myrrdin’s story in the early books of this series. Their relationship was fraught with issues and both men were in need of some serious healing. When I saw they were getting their own novella, I jumped for joy and requested this one as fast as my fingers could type.

I would just like to say that this novella was all kinds of perfect for these men. It really captured the their essence and gave me great insight into their origins. The birth of the Spring Rite was just as intense and sexual as the rest of this series These men were instantly pulled together and their lust was explosive. Watching them figure out who they were, who they were  to each other, and how they fit together was so enlightening. It really set the stage for how they have come to be as they are. This was such a good read and it brought an extra layer to my desire to know more about Kas and Myrrdin’s history.

I hope these men get another book so I can see how it all went wrong. I loved learning about who these men were, how they came to be, and how they came to be together. But in the end, all this story did was make me crave more of their story.
