LENGTH: 515 Pages
Anaxantis, prince of Ximerion.
Not certain who he can trust, Anaxantis keeps recruiting and training troops, with dogged tenacity, to face the barbarian invasion.
Who is the spy, leaking information to his father, the high king? What to do about the new arrival who tries to free his brother? Was the barbarian prince really captured or does he have a hidden agenda?
Amid all the preparations for war, Lorcko of Iramid is looking for love. True love, this time. However, his reputation is working against him.
Anaxantis has his own troubles in the love department.
Soon he will be forced to make some hard decisions. Is he up to it, or will he finally buckle down under the strain?
Oh, my god, this book is so good. There are so many twists and turns. Although I can’t say much without spoilers, everything was orchestrated perfectly. I was crying at the end and I’m still so happy about how this trilogy concluded. As a side note, Anaxantis reminds me of Alexander the Great in many ways. Anaxanis is a leader who is young and cunning, but also flawed who knows how to make his troops love him. It will be interesting to see how his character progresses. I’ll certainly be reading on because I have to know what comes next. The wrap up was awesome, and the intrigue for the books to come are set. I recommend this series to anyone who loves M/M dark erotica and M/M fantasy with a Middle Ages feel to it. I’m truly in love with this series.
RATING: Absolutely crazy about it! I will read it again someday!
