Trust is more terrifying than any weapon.
Valis’ father wants to sacrifice him to the evil God, Qos. His uncle wants to use him as a magical battery and sex slave. All Valis wants is to live in peace, without fear of constant abuse. When he escapes his father’s sacrificial knife and runs away, he lands in the camp of his two saviors, Kerac and Darolen, holy Aesriphos warriors powerful enough to put his family in their place.
But trusting anyone could be fatal, and the warriors ask the impossible: to sell his father’s farmstead and abandon his old life to join their monastery.
They’re his only hope and when he learns to trust them, they’re the father figures he always wanted, but Valis isn’t sure he’s strong enough to put aside his fear and start over.
The God Jars Saga is a nine book slow burn medieval M/M fantasy romance.
I have to be completely honest here in saying that I was really skeptical when I started reading this book. Some of the lingo really through me at the beginning and I was lost for a little bit on what to expect from this book but I pressed through and kept reading. Turns out this was really an incredible book in the end. Once I started to figure out what was going on I was sucked in.
This is a story about a boy who was neglected and abused by his family as a whole. Valis did not trust anyone to tell him the truth because that is all he has ever known. Lies and Deception. So when two men come riding in and become his savior against his father and then later his uncle, Valis’s first instinct was to run and then it was to mistrust.
This made becoming his friend very hard for Darolen and Kerac. Both men wanted to save Valid and show him that life could be different from what he was raised but it was not an easy task to accomplish. Each time they took what felt like a step forward, in return they all went back two more paces. So needless to say it was not an easy task for any of them.
As he threat of danger increased, both Darolen and Kerac realized that unless they taught Calis how to stand up for himself, he could be in harms way. Again one step forward and two steps back scenario all over again.
In the end trust is what gets these men through the worst of their journey. Now they may have a chance at being something more together, a family.
This turned out to be such a great read. Once you are past the first chapter or so the book really starts to take off and you are engrossed in it all the way to the very end. I truly enjoyed this read and cannot wait for the next book to come out. I want to see what is next for these three and where the future is going to take Valis. Very interesting series thus far.
