Why I read this book: I’m enjoying this series.
Sawyer Smith’s life is a hot mess.
Hot, because he’s found six of his eight mates. To say things are heating up between them is putting it mildly.
A mess, because he’s the Chosen One, the son of a goddess with no powers of his own, tasked with fixing the broken magic in his world….And he has no clue how to do it.
With every new layer of mystery that’s revealed, Sawyer’s doubts about his abilities get stronger. To complicate matters, Sawyer is growing weaker by the day. Meanwhile, his newest guardian, the one he’s calling Yellow Eyes, refuses to reveal himself.
With time running out, Sawyer’s desperate enough to make a daring move — one that’s potentially deadly for him and his mates. Because at the end of the day, if there’s nothing ventured, there’s nothing gained.
In the last book, Sawyer discovered the fairy prince was not his mate (thank goodness). No, it’s the fairy prince’s bodyguard, Locke. Locke carries some deep secrets, but he’s quickly incorporated into the growing menage. He’s number six, and Sawyer is pretty sure the creature just beyond the view of the house is the seventh. He’s called by this creature, and wants to do right by him. But Dakota sees more than most, and is very wary.
Sawyer is being cared for by Cecil, but even those ministrations aren’t enough. He loses much of his power when he’s not surrounded by his mates – and there is one left to find. Will they find him in time? And why has Sawyer made the choices he has to this point? The finding of mates is proving a doable task – undoing the mess he created when he gave up his powers and took human form is not. But the final confrontation is coming, and I can’t wait to see where it leads.
Quick shout out to Michael Dean who is doing an awesome job narrating this series and I can’t wait to see how it ends.
