I, Ervyn Morryés of the Black Mountain clan, know all about control.

As the only fair-haired Dark Elf in the Highlands, I had to learn to control my fists and my temper in the face of derision.

To become the best archer amongst my peers, I had to learn to control my breathing and my movements.

But the day the half-breed called Lochan Féyes arrived at the training camp, my discipline faltered. Because—sweet gods—when I am around that aloof, blue-eyed assassin, my need is uncontrollable.

Very interesting short story, the best part of was that I was left wanting more, and I know there’s more coming, which makes me very happy.

The story is set in a fantasy world where Ervyn is doing his best effort to become the best archer, but when Lochan comes into training, his attention goes to the half-breed and sets a new goal to achieve.

I loved Lochan, and perhaps the part that I liked the most about him was the fact that he remain a mystery for most of the story. I didn’t felt like I was able to really know him, but for this story, I felt it worked as a hook for the next book. I ended up wanting to know more about his personality and backstory. Ervyn wasn’t as interesting as him, and I rather disliked him. I would expect he was the nicer since it was his point of view the one we were seen, but I couldn’t care much for him. I hope this change in the future.

As for the relationship between them, it was nice, is more a little lust from Ervyn than an actual love feeling, but it was ok for being just the beginning of something. Lochan, again, more mysterious concerning his feelings too. I can’t wait to see where this is going, I surely will be reading the next book.

Galley copy of The Mutt: An Order Short Story provided by Kasia Bacon in exchange of an honest review.


I love to read M/M books. I’m still doing a lot of catching up with some series and getting to know some authors. I love to read stories with dark themes, a lot of angst and complex characters. I’ve always been interested on how mental illness is portray in books, so I would probably read any book with that subject.

Here are some of my favorite books
