Rune Saint John, last child of the fallen Sun Court, is hired to search for Lady Judgment’s missing son, Addam, on New Atlantis, the island city where the Atlanteans moved after ordinary humans destroyed their original home.
With his companion and bodyguard, Brand, he questions Addam’s relatives and business contacts through the highest ranks of the nobles of New Atlantis. But as they investigate, they uncover more than a missing man: a legendary creature connected to the secret of the massacre of Rune’s Court.
In looking for Addam, can Rune find the truth behind his family’s death and the torments of his past?
SO much to like about this book!
- The banter – Rune and Brand, as best friends, as Companions, were my favorite part of this book.
“It’s a cock ring,” Brand told Matthias.
“Godsdammit,” I said. “It’s a sigil. I have a Shatter spell in it. Do you know how few scions can pull off Shatter?”
“His magic cock ring,” Brand said.
I adored seeing such a strong bond between best friends and having it not interfere when the romance with Addam and Rune started.
- Brand is the best friend I want to have. His one liners MADE this book for me.
“Duel you?” Brand laughed. “Look. I’m sure you were the shit on your frat’s beer pong team, but we’re way past your pay grade.”
- The mystery that still isn’t solved. Rune’s family was raided and killed when he was fifteen years old. He went through one of the most horrific things anyone can imagine when he was kidnapped during the raid. He has never learned who was responsible for leaving him an orphan and stealing his innocence.
From “seer” brothers, to adopted brothers, to appointed guardians and uncles, this book made me smile. My only niggle is that there was so much going on in this fantasy story, but it really didn’t matter. I enjoyed every minute of it!
This story has just begun, and I can’t wait to see what happens now that Addam is officially “courting” Rune.
