When Farhad discovers the bodyguard known as Bulletproof, he recognizes Devron for exactly what he is- an immature gargoyle. Unable to bring such a youth into the fold without his full height, power, and armaments, Farhad guides the whelp into the Scylla, an organization of supernatural s charged with protecting Earth. Praying that Devron will grow stronger with every day, Farhad can only hope that Devron becomes strong enough to endure what is to come.
Devron understands little of what and who he is. He is dependent on Farhad’s guidance, but when it comes so sparsely, he suspects that there may be a grave reason behind the elder’s avoidance. With the sparks of attraction igniting every time they meet, Devron knows that Farhad is far more than a tutor. How much may be more than both of them can handle!
This was a strange book for me personally. The blurb completely drew me in, yet when I first started reading the book, I just couldn’t seem to get into it. So I’d stop reading it for a few days and then read another chapter or two, and then quit again.
But at some point about a quarter of the way through it, I was drawn completely into the story and just couldn’t stop reading it because I had to find out what was going on with Devron and Farhad. Once I hit that point, the story really progressed and I just kept reading until next thing I knew, the book was over. And I really didn’t want it to be.
Devron’s character was really confusing for me, and it was really hard for me to connect with him. At times he seemed very cocky and self-assured, but at other times it was like he was a super sweet guy who only wanted the best for Farhad. And with that, Farhad’s character was just amazing. It was so easy to connect with him, and even though you could tell that he was hiding things, you had a feeling it was for a good reason.
I do have to say that there were some time jumps that happened from chapter to chapter, but I have to give Lairis complete props for the fact that they did make it very obvious within the first few paragraphs how much time had passed, and what had been covered.
The twists and turns that happened in the story kept me on the edge of my seat, and near the end of the book I was just blown away by everything that was revealed. I do hope that Lairis does a second book with these characters because it would be great to catch up with them and find out how things are going.
Now, the reason why I didn’t rate this 5 stars is the fact that it was so hard to fully get into the book, as well as I wasn’t able to fully get into the story completely.
