This review was kindly requested by the Author, Connor Drexler.
Damon is not human, however; he wishes to act like one. He has a past that haunts him, yet he wants to forget it and to move on. Damon has tried so hard to create a living as normal as possible but once wizards arrive and threaten this peaceful life; he then has to use his secret powers to fight back. As this secret comes out, his life like the wish to live resembling a human also changes.
He has to save himself and his friends while trying not to turn into what they all expect of him, a Mad God.
This is an interesting story. There may be stories similar to this genre around however this book had its novel approach and kept it all together which is hard to do considering the paranormal activity within the content of the book. The book is very well written, and the literary standard is up to speed.
The relationship between Damon and Thom was built very nicely and enjoyable to read. The care was deep and written well. There was enough backstory for the characters, and the pace of the tale was good to keep the reader’s interest. There is some romance in this story, and so it does contain sexual content. The love between Damon and Sarah was a little too fast, and the quality of care and affection between them was poor. This caused me doubting the authenticity of their regard.
The ending of the book is different than what you would expect, and I believe it was just. Considering this is book one, I anticipate that it was the right approach to take.
I look forward to reading more from this author, and I recommend this book to urban fantasy readers and magic book lovers.
