Riley lived a pretty normal and boring life until the day everything changed in an instant. As he is finishing up his job two men come into the coffee shop and turn his world upside down. These men were not human, and they were not alone. Riley has no chance at saving himself but soon there are tigers and magic coming to his aid. Will Riley survive, and will he become the prince that he is destined to be or is it all going to slip away from him along with his happiness? Is Khalon there to help or will he dismiss Riley like everyone else does?
Riley’s story is one intriguing adventure after another. He soon finds himself in a world he never could have imagined, one full of magic and wonder. As Khalon and his men take Riley to the Priestess Riley must figure out what he wants to fight for. Khalon comes off as an egotistical jerk but we soon see another side of him as their journey continues. The two have an attraction that cannot be denied no matter how hard they try ignoring it. Trust and love is gained along the way but soon the demons gain the upper hand and it may be too late for Riley and Khalon. It was nice to see the softer side of Khalon and his men. Riley shows how strong he truly is and proves that he is so much more than what others see on the outside. I enjoyed the camaraderie that Khalon has with not only his men but his subjects as well. He may be king, but he rules fairly and is dearly loved.
Narrator Manuel Pombo does a nice job of bringing these characters and their world to life. As I listened I was quickly pulled into the world of magic and demons alongside Riley. The story is fast paced, and its characters made an impression on me and I am eager to return to this world to see what will happen next.
This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
