A broken mage. A penitent vampire. Can they put aside the horrors of the past to save each other?
Plagued with erratic. volatile magic, Nicodemus Green focuses his entire life to stop an evil sorcerer who brainwashes or kills anyone in his path to domination. Ten years into this crusade, Nick stumbles upon his former Academy instructor in the Austrian Alps. The strict and pious Byron Domitius has cloistered himself in an isolated manor. Alone and starving, he hates the twisted, damned creature he has become.
A prophecy calls for Nick and Byron to bond by blood to finally bring an end to the sorcerer's hidden agenda. The two are forced to see beyond their shared past, and Nick finds himself desiring more from his old instructor than just his magic. But are these emotions real, or do they come from the heat of their bond?
I'm a fantasy author with a taste for heroic fantasy with romantic subplots. I love adventure and quest stories. I want people to read my novels and feel like the ride was worth it. I live in the PNW and love the outdoors.
Byron knows he's dying, and he wished for a better life than this, but he gave his life in exchange for killing some of the invaders. Throughout the book there are glimpses of his inner sense of duty. He's a stark character who had many things taken from him and yet he still marches on.
Byron Domitius lay in an expanding pool of his own blood on the floor of the entrance hall at Charing Academy. At least dying to save these brats would possibly win him a spot in some glorious afterlife, only one of which he paid any stock to. He’d eradicated three of Wormwood’s soldiers in their concerted attempt to invade the school and maimed a few more. It was, perhaps, a fair exchange.
