Twenty-year-old Tarquin is smart, tactless, and braver than he knows. He's also been Mage of the Realm of Kelor for two years, taking the title from his mother after she died protecting Kelor from a terrible threat. While on a quest to heal his dying brother, Tarquin is attacked by a horrific, flesh-eating monster. He's saved by an enigmatic and mute young soldier, cursed with a terrifying form that conceals the heart of a knight. There's an almost instant attraction between the two men, but no time to explore it. The monster's attack is the harbinger of a new invasion. With Kelor helpless, the realm's only hope lies with Tarquin. As Mage of the Realm, he alone can sacrifice himself, the way his mother did, in exchange for unimaginably powerful magic. He's prepared to give up his life to defeat the coming evil, but before the battle is over, he'll be faced not just with his own death, but the death of everyone he cares about. Including the monster he's come to love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Was a decent read but... I read this book out of pure longing for a different type of romantic fantasy. (Although it's not catered specifically to being 'romantic', there is some sexuality between the main character Tarquin and a cursed mysterious man. Although I can't complain at that.) The story and characters were enough to draw me in to keep reading. But I feel it fell short in plot and growth. There were useless conversations and actions between characters that just felt awkward and unnecessary. But as I kept reading I started to understand more of this world the author created. It was a bit confusing, what the names of certain species were, later on my questions were resolved. I felt Tarquin's personality was strange and a bit awkward, but at the same time I could relate. But nonetheless I did enjoy the book. I would have loved to read more intimate scenes between Tarquin and "Five" and have their relation ship grow more at the end.
