Two men from opposite ends of the world find themselves thrown together by fate. One is a noble prince from the North and the other is a Magi from the South.  Lysander has come to the slave market to buy a warrior. There he finds Wyl who is just the kind of man he needs.  When Lysander buys Wyl he finds that the sellers will not negotiate and he must bind Wyl to him. As abhorrent that is to Lysander and against what he believes in he needs a warrior more than his morals. Can Lysander find a way to explain to Wyl that he longs for help and this is his last resort at finding it?  As Wyl learns his fate he must also come to terms with what is building between him and Lysander. Will these two men find a way to a future or are they doomed from the start?

The world that Wyl finds himself thrust in is so different from where he comes from. He was once a prince and now a slave. Wyl must decide on where his true home and family are. Lysander tries hard to do right by Wyl as much as he can but there is only so much he can do to help him after binding Wyl. As the two learn to trust one another they fiercely fight their attraction but it seems a love has become to grow and blossom. I enjoyed watching Wyl and Lysander find their way. Both men are strong and together they are something else.  It was nice to see the men’s personalities come out as the story moved along.  It was nice to see the two men fight for what was right and aim for their happy ever after.
This story moves along at a nice pace and the characters are full of emotions and depth. It is an interesting and engaging read. The author weaves an adventure full of magic and emotions. I hope that this is not the last that we get to see of this world.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
