A Grandmaster has been accused of deliberately sending his own people to their deaths in order to achieve a heinous end. Michael has been dispatched to the Grandmaster’s planet to investigate. There he is paired up with a Healer, Andesine , for whom he feels an almost instant attraction. While it obvious that she feels the same way, there are too many secrets between them. However their adventure is just beginning and it will lead to places neither of them can anticipate.
This is one of the best books I have read in a while. When I began reading this book, I had no idea that this was part of a series. It did seem at times that I was missing something, however the story managed to stand alone and was quite entertaining. The love story was beautiful if a bit predictable and the insights into the High lords really gave the story needed layers. This Story has Dragons, Magic Users, Healers and High Lords, terrific fantasy elements used well. However, I do think the erotica was a bit over the top. Loves scenes between the main characters would have been better without the crude erotica specific terminology used by the author. It was a biting contrast to the term “sharing pleasures” used throughout the book.
Overall this was worth a couple hours of Intense reading. I am looking forward to hunting down the rest of the series to play catch up.

*** BOOK TOUR ***
It was time for the Lords of the High Council to step in when the Grandmaster of Kryane is accused of murdering his own people. They had little choice but to prevent the collapse of the whole magicians order, so they sent Michael to investigate the allegations.
The people of the desert planet were an enigma, but none more than Andesine, the healer assigned to assist Michael. Why did she report the Grandmaster? Was she involved, or was there something more sinister going on?
The more people they interrogated the more they suspected that nothing was as it seemed. Not the murders, nor the Grandmasters’ motive as everyone thought.
Unable to resist the growing attraction between them, Michael and Andesine learn that they had to trust each other with their own secrets, and risking any future they might have.
Time and again the High Lords had to step in to prevent chaos on Kryane, but time was running out for Michael and Andesine. They had to get a new Grandmaster in place before the Kryane Order collapsed completely. And they had to find the who the true culprit was.
Fortunate to escape an attack from this monster once, they were risking the lives of many others in the process. Before the High Lords could formulate a plan, Michael and Andesine were captured, leaving the High Lords helpless to prevent it.
Kidnapped and imprisoned, Andesine was confronted with the realisation that if they were to survive their ordeal, it was up to her and her long suppressed powers. But as a healer she saved lives, would she be able to destroy the monster before he forces her to unleash her power to destroy the future of mankind?
