Freedom is within reach for Todd and Nick Ruger, but their dreams of Elk’s Ridge are dashed by Vice-Chancellor Raleigh’s troops. With his mate imprisoned, Nick searches for help and finds an unlikely and unexpected ally. But Todd’s release leaves them once again in debt to Chancellor Clarke.
Their mission sends them to the small village of Eldrid in search of a historic record of owners and slaves with unique abilities. Eldrid holds even more secrets from the past—including the origins of sentries—as well as conspiracies of the present that are set to launch a new battle that will turn lover helplessly against lover. Though Todd and Nick know the realities of war are hard lessons, it will be a fight to draw on the strengths of their bond, survive, and learn to forgive.
So far, I have liked this book the best in the series! We finally have some background as to why the society is the way it is and how things came to be. It would have been nice if this information was clear in earlier books, but I was happy to have it now.
We see more of Nick’s beginnings and we finally see Nick being strong and capable. I was so glad that he was able to flourish a bit more in this book. I really liked him this go around.
While this book is full of more political intrigue, we get a lot of action and answers. There are still questions lingering but I anticipate them being tied up soon. I’m glad to have stuck with the series.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
