Conall Dary is the mightiest mage born to the Fae race in more than two thousand years, ever since the Sundering of the Fae and human worlds. But that power condemns him to an untouched, virginal life — sex calls to power, and his power is enough to drain the magick, the life, from his entire world. Exiled from the Realm for refusing to turn his talent to service a Noble’s petty revenge fantasies, his soul is torn in two and his magickal gifts blocked.
Josh LaFontaine is a gifted tattoo artist with a heart of gold. While doing a good turn for an ex-boyfriend, he’s stunned when a gorgeous red-haired twink appears out of nowhere at his feet during New York City’s Pride march.
The Marfach was thwarted in its first attempt to capture a Fae. But when a terrible accident separates Conall and Josh before they bond, it’s a race to see who finds the mage first, the monster who will use him as a weapon to destroy his race, or his SoulShare.
Review of #1 from 9th July can be found HERE.
First of all can I say ‘YAY REDHEAD!’ I like red hair. But I was confused when someone said “WHERE’S THE BLONDE??!” and the other person answered “The red head? No idea.” No dude, he was after a blonde….
So this is part two to the soul share story. This book is about a different couple, but they interact with the first and they have the same issues, namely the same Big Bad. Whose parts of the book I only skimmed, I don’t like this creature and it was getting in the way of happenings.
I have to say I wish there had been more character development with these guys, there was no need for world building, but I feel that a little would have helped flesh these guys out more. There was less mystery too, because something happens and josh is just sort of handed the information and told to fix it (not really). I wish we’d have been given more ‘after’ story too, to see how they were without all the issues. For example, Conall made a promise and I’d have liked to see him do a little towards it now that he’s safe and bound etc
Both of these guys are strong types, though Conall seems younger I think that’s just due to his inexperience and lack of knowledge of this world. After all he’s a pretty powerful guy, he’s got to have some kind of force behind him. I hope we get to see that in the next few books. Their relationship is far newer in this book, it covers a far far smaller time too.
I feel that the others are possibly going to be simular in that there is perhaps a race against the clock now. But I do hope there will be more Conall and Josh in book 3!
