Sammy always thought if himself as worthless and a nobody. O’Flaggan made sure to beat it into him since he was a child both physically and mentally. The archbishop made sure to keep Sammy demeaned and barley alive. When the Sammy wakes in a cell from his last beating with two magical beings giving all that they can to save him he does not know what to think and when others like them come to save them Sammy is taken along with them. As he heals Sammy meats many people but none as good as Gabe. The man truly seems to like him and want to be near him. Nobody ever wants that and Sammy is at a loss. So conflicted with his new found friends and emotions and all that O’Flaggan kept reinforcing on Sammy. Can he rise above it all and find his true self and leave behind his old life or has the evil won already?
I enjoyed watching Sammy and Gabe’s relationship begin to take shape. Gabe is a good man and no matter what happens he just wants Sammy to heal, inside and out. Gabe longs for so much but he is ready to try and put his feelings aside to make sure that Sammy is healthy. Sammy must find a way to figure out what is true and make some hard choices about his life and when he helps to rescue Fin the decisions are that are to be made become more intense. It was nice to see Sammy find more than friendship with his rescuers. All are more than willing to fight for what is right in the world and gladly embrace Sammy and his true worth. The author does a nice job of weaving the romance in with the action making this an engaging read. Sammy’s new world is an adventure and full of emotions that will grab you right from the start. It was nice to see Sammy come into his own and find out just what he truly is worth. I am eager to see what will happen in the next book of this series.
