As with most Fantasy reads this book takes a little time setting up the story line and the characters but it definitely helps the reader as the story quickly moves along. The main character, Prince Lorn, after years of wallowing, is accused of kidnapping a Princess and wreaking havoc in the country. His pursuit to clear his name, rescue, and return the princess are met with a few surprises.
This author has some nice wording and phrases that easily lend it to the feeling of the fantasy genre. That along with the dialogue makes the story flow along in an easy manner.
A surprise in this book was the well done sexual scenes that would have been well done even in a romance novel. This book has a good presentation of good vs. evil and a thought provoking idea of what if evil is good? While the author is a novice, and there are a few minor disconnects, I think she is on to something with her characters and writing. I look forward to the next book in this series.
Prince Lorn of Jior is what’s left of an evil empire. King Kullorn was the epitome of evil. Together they led demon hordes reaping death and destruction. Kullorn is killed, leaving Lorn alone to wallow in the desolation of defeat. Years later, Lorn is accused of following in his father’s footsteps and kidnapping Princess Lililaira. Risking capture, imprisonment and death Lorn attempts to learn who is using his name to start another war. During a rescue of the Princess, Lorn is badly wounded and they must fight to remain together as he is healed by her, body, heart and soul.
