This one surprised me a bit. I really enjoyed it. There was a nice long buildup to Dane and Lindsay's relationship. It was not until around page 100 that they actually too their relationship further. There was so much going on throughout this story. I found myself constatantly trying to figure things out. You don't find out until almost the end what Dane actually is, and the circumstances surrounding his issues are still a little unclear to me, as is his relationship with Cryus and Ezqel.
Lindsay is such a sweet soul. His parents had him institutionalized to rid him of this magic. There, he was tortured and experiemented on for almost two years. He manages to escape, which is when Dane finds him and becomes the one solid comforting beacon in his life. The institution had cursed and manipulated Lindsay's magic to the point it was broken and causing him great pain. Dane went on a journey to an ancient Fae to get him help. Through this time, Lindsay is still a bit lost and confused about who to trust, and even though Dane continues to be the strong constant, Lindsay questions Dane's intentions as well.
This story is an adventure with lots of action and interesting characters. Anah Crow has painted a very colorful picture with this story, and I'm looking forward to reading more in this series.
