Standing under the hot sun in the slave market, Wyl thought his fate couldn’t get worse. He’d been betrayed by his family, exiled, and sentenced to slavery in the desert lands where he doesn’t know the language or the customs. Yet, as he faces the scrutiny of an interested buyer, Wyl realizes he was wrong. With an exchange of coins, he could go from life as a warrior and a prince to that of a pleasure slave.
Lysander finds the stench of the slave-trading city almost unbearable. He longs for the quiet shelter of his home. Yet, Steed’s Hold is under siege and he has come to the city to find a warrior willing to fight for the cost of his freedom. However, Lysander does not expect to find the handsome Northerner or the new desires he sparks inside of Lysander. He also does not expect the terrible stipulation attached to the man’s sale, one that would demand a heavy price of them both.
Lysander is a mage more used to commanding earth, metal, and wood than people. How is he to be master of a slave, and the slave’s desire, when Lysander hasn’t fully mastered his own?
his story really is a wonderful one. When Magi and warriors are mixed together you can bet an exciting time.
Wyl has been disowned and shipped off to be a slave for the rest of his life. One of the problems is Wyl is a prince and a master warrior, he doesn’t know how to submit let alone follow orders given to him in a foreign language. As he battles for his pride and life he keeps getting into more trouble.
Lysander is a powerful maji, he lives to help out his family and secure there safety. He is shy and not good with words. So when he decides to bring home a warrior to help his family he never thought of all the things that could go wrong.
The’s two are completely opposites. Throughout there journey they learn to function as a team. It is hard to overcome the wrongs done to a person yet that is exactly what must happen if they are to survive.
The characters in this book are mature and complete. There is a dynamic that builds throughout the book. The time put in to get to know the characters is well spent. I was holding my breath at times and never put it down. I spent over 6 hours caught up in this story and can honestly say it was worth the loss of sleep.
