The first step on the road to addiction is desire…

Tighe is Summer’s prince, the second son of the Summer Queen. The blindness of his mortal father cursed him with eyes that see too much, and now he wanders the woods of immortal Summer alone. He is an outsider in his own country or at best a curiosity—never someone anyone truly wants.

Faelan is gancanagh, one of dark Summer’s most treacherous beings. Beguiling as he is beautiful, he, like all of his kind, was made to incite lust and longing, even as he seeks true love. For anything mortal, anything unprepared, even to be in his presence is dangerous.

When the two meet by chance, Faelan can’t help but be curious about this half-mortal prince—and the prince is more interested in a companion than questioning what kind.

Tighe has never seen anything but the lie behind love. Faelan is love’s lie and knows it. Is the beginning and end of everything between them inevitable? Which is stronger, need—or nature?

Publisher’s Note: This book is associated with the Eight Kingdoms series by Belinda Burke.

My View:

This novella exists within the same world as the Eight Kingdoms series. You do not have to read the series itself to enjoy this story, but Undone features characters who play fairly regular roles in the series and I suggest picking this one up to learn more about them. I also suggest reading the previous books to get a better understanding about the structure of this fascinating world.

Tighe and Faelan captured my interest when I was reading the Eight Kingdom novels. When I found out they had their own story, I jumped at the chance to read it. I am glad I did because it gave me better insight to their natures and the beginnings of their bond.

Tighe was an interesting and somewhat mysterious character. He saw too much and was horribly alone even when surrounded by those who claim to love him. What a depressing existence that must have been, yet he always appeared upbeat and cared for those around him.

Faelan was gancanagh. Which to me appeared to be an incubus type creature. He was equally mysterious and lonely. Cursed to have only lustful desires aimed at him, he was confused when Tighe offered more.

This was a short story that showcased the beginning of their time together. It showed the origins of these lonely hearts finding fulfillment and starting a journey together. I am eager to see more from them in the remaining Eight Kingdoms books.
