If only things were that simple. Like many over the past decade, Ryker has no desire to attend Bramble’s Edge Academy and fights when the Collectors come to take him to the school. His escape attempt ends in disaster, leaving him incapacitated in the middle of the quad with battered wings and an unwanted attraction to Maurelle.
The sexy female comes with more than he can afford. Too much negative attention. And a smile that makes him forget his name.
Ryker reluctantly develops a friendship with Maurelle after they are repeatedly thrown together. While attending classes and trying to keep their heads down, the pair discovers a plot to poison the students, as well as the Headmistress’s secret group of assassins.
With their friends’ lives on the line, they sneak into the Edge and unearth the fact that he’s the heir to the Fae throne. Nothing like adding complications to their already precarious situation.
Dangers rise, leaving Ryker with the decision of whether or not to reveal he survived the murder of his parents decades ago. Problem is the fallout will bring more casualties than he can live with.
"They turned down another street and she was surprised to see a number of Fae out and about still this late at night."
"The moment she noticed he blended with the shadows that ended and reality came back."
I'm sure some people will love this but I like a good bit of action in my paranormal books and there hadn't been any in those first 36%. I was a little disappointed.
