Rian Sheridan is a foundling, a Falls Road corner boy, whose world went up in flames beside an Orangemen’s bonfire of hatred last July the Twelfth. A pain he barely remembers is a siren’s call, taunting him, daring him to find its source and lose himself to it. And he searches in the only place he knows, the S&M underground of Belfast.
Cuinn an Dearmad is the last surviving Fae Loremaster. He’s just seen the beginning of the death of the Realm, the home of the Fae race and their haven from the twisted evil of the Marfach. The only hope of saving the Realm starts with finding the Prince Royal of Fire he himself stole from the cradle, and lost in the human world, many years ago. He has a few guesses about where that hope ends, none of which bode well for him.
Rian and Cuinn are an impossible pairing, two SoulShared Fae. Any two Fae strike sparks, but these two Fae are an explosive combination. Drawn into an escalating series of sexual collisions, their passion will save — or destroy — two worlds.
I feel I have to first add a warning: This story contains violent/pain sex. Just in case.
The other stories seemed to be building up to this one, though it’s not the end things have certainly changed. They’ve got into a pretty good position now (haha) but what they did is going to heavily effect what happens next, we just don’t yet know how exactly.
As always, could do with more character time. I LIKE these guys and I’d have liked more time to hang out with them. The good thing is that each book continues the story and so you get to see the others again.
Cuinn was the quickest to accept his scair’anam, probably because he knew (or thought he knew) what he was getting into. And honestly, Rian seemed to take everything pretty well, for all his life was because of Cuinn. But then I guess we only saw the bad and he had so many years of good first to balance it all. There was little not-getting-along to be honest and for some reason I thought there’d be more. The pairings are getting semi faster and the story is getting deeper.
Within these books, any conflicts are resolved lightning quick, problems are solved together and no one hangs about saying “Hold on a minute, why do I have to be with you, I didn’t choose this!” or “But me me me!” they’re all “Hey! How are ya?” and “Well this sucks for me, but lets be honest, it sucks for you more.” and that’s just magic and nice.
I’m looking forward to the next, I can’t wait to see what the guys messed up and if they can fix it and it will be nice to see the redemption of Bryce. Hopefully he gets rid of that mustache…
