Love takes flight.
The sudden death of the Gryphon King throws the kingdom of Mythos into uncertainty, and Crown Prince Luca rushes both his coronation and an arranged marriage to a man he’s never met. Eirian is young and idealistic, and while they both want what’s best for their people, their philosophies couldn’t be more different. While Luca believes in honoring tradition, Eirian is determined to infuse modern values into their kingdom of magical creatures. When given the choice between loyalty to his husband and his own crusade, Eirian makes a decision that might doom their marriage.
Still, Luca is committed to making their union work, and that means forgiving his brash consort. But when Eirian becomes the target of a deadly conspiracy, Luca must act fast—or forever lose the chance to explore their burgeoning love.
This was a very intriguing read. I read the book in one sitting. Once I started it I was enraptured and could not put it down. It is a shifter book but it is about so much more than just that. This book has deception, misleading, trust issues, betrayal, and danger.
Luca was in line to become the next Gryphon King but he never expected it to happen so soon. He knew that he was going to marry someone in an arranged marriage and that is not a big deal normally because that is just how things are done. But the difference is that normally he would have time to get to know the person he is to marry for a couple of years before they marry. But because of the unexpectedness of the previous king’s death the timeline has been moved up and he is getting married to a man that he has never met.
Call it fate or what have you but when Luca meets Eirian he feels an instant attraction. And even though they have not had any time to get to know one another neither man is opposed to the marriage. The only thing that really is an issue for them is they have different opinions on how the country is to move forward. So this could cause some undue stress to their new bond.
Add into the mix that it seems someone may be out to get Eirian and the stress levels are running high. Can two men that just met with all the things standing in their way make it? Or will they take the easy way out and end things before they even begin?
This read was truly an incredible read that kept me on the edge of my seat. I could not put it down until I got to the end of the book. I definitely recommend this book for others.
