Bonded soul mates. Shocking secrets. Protecting the one he loves could destroy everything…

Ilyas defeated the Dark God and won the spoils of a lifetime: a new kingdom, a new soulmate, and a chance at revenge. Just when he has the chance to humiliate the brother who sold him out, Ilyas learns a closely-guarded secret. He has a son, and now he’ll do everything he can to protect him.

Jem’s life was pure loneliness before he met Ilyas. But with the Dark God thwarted, Jem is completely powerless. When Ilyas begins to devote his full attention to the baby, Jem becomes determined to win his soulmate back.

After allying with a powerful secret society, Jem conspires to deliver an uninhabited world where Ilyas’ young son can truly be safe. But Jem didn’t realize that his new alliance comes at a high price, one that may cost him the love of Ilyas forever.

Immortal Watch is a spellbinding LGBT dark fantasy novel. If you like rich world-building, captivating storytelling, and edge-of-your-seat action, then you’ll love this story of love and horror from Olivia Helling.

REVIEW:

This book was a wonderful adventure. The story begins as Jem and Ilyas are traveling by ship to Ilyas’s homeland in attempt to secure a trade deal and bring back money to feed Jem’s starving people. However, Ilyas’s brother who sold him out has been consolidating his power in Ilyas’s absense. To complicate things even more, Jem realizes he’s still being haunted by the dark god. While they struggle to overcome the political fallout of Ilyas’s return, the couple finds themselves moving further and further apart from one another. It seems through Jem’s insecurities and Ilyas’s desire to keep his family safe from the dark god that they’ll never come together again.

Immortal Watch is filled with twists and turns, as well as fantastic magic, and was a virtual roller coaster for the characters. The adventure never stops, which made the book exciting and engaging. Jem is a bit twisted in a ways, but I loved his vulnerabilities in this book. Despite things seeming wholly impossible for Jem and Ilyas to work out, I was very pleased with the ending. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves MM Dark Fantasy.

RATING: I liked it!
