The Kingdom of Askara has been torn apart by conflict for centuries, where humans exist as subservient beings to their werewolf masters. Legend says it will only be able to heal itself when an Alpha King and a pure omega are mated and crowned together, but a pure omega hasn’t been born in over a thousand years.
Luca is an Alpha-heir eagerly awaiting the choosing ceremony on his twenty-fifth birthday and the gifts granted by whichever omega he mates. His small pack is destitute due to the decisions of its ruling council, but being only an Alpha-heir, he has no authority to challenge them. Not until now—this moment he has waited a long time for.
Kit grew up as a street-rat, an unlicensed human who would never be more than a slave for whichever master owns him. Then one day he came across a young Alpha-heir, attacked and dying of poison, and found out their fates were suddenly entwined.
Luca needs to take over his pack and save his people. He cannot afford to be distracted. But when he meets Kit, he develops abilities indicating he is not just a pack Alpha, but the King his world has needed for a thousand years.
Is Kit really the cause of Luca’s newfound power, the true mate he needs? How is it possible when the young man isn’t even a werewolf, and as merely a human, a mating is not only forbidden, but for Kit, a sentence of death? (WARNING -Contains MPreg)
This was such a good book. I enjoyed seeing Luca and Kit fall in love and start making things better for everyone. The story had me enthralled right from the beginning. I adored the storytelling and lore created. Ms. Sue weaves another world with intrigue and history and factions and characters that make me want to know more.
Luca truly cares about those around him. He wants the best for all werewolves and humans. Luca struggles a bit with balancing expectations and his own wants. He makes some not so great choices and they bite him in the butt a few times. But things work out for the good. You can tell he falls for Kit quickly. Luca’s emotions are clear in the story and you can feel his despair when he thinks things are over, his joy when Kit gives birth, and his love for Kit through the whole story. I adored the way he was protective of Kit. Luca would do anything to keep Kit safe and happy.
Kit struggles with his self worth. He doesn’t think he deserves happiness and to be loved. My heart broke for him when he thought Luca didn’t love him. He was so heartbroken and those emotions came through so loudly as I was reading. I was gutted right along with Kit. He had an amazing ability to show poise and grace when it comes to making Luca look good. He also was resilient in the fave of everything that lay in his and Luca’s way of having a happy ending. By the end of the story, Kit is beyond happy and nothing could change that.
The journey Kit and Luca go on to be together and to claim the throne so Luca can right wrongdoings was amazing. I adored the characters around Luca and Kit. I want to know more about all of them and see many of them get happy endings. I also truly enjoyed the lore in the story and the world created. It was rich and full and very well laid out. Luca and Kit fall for each other quickly but they have plenty more obstacles in their way. The story doesn’t end with their “I love you” declaration. I desperately want a sequel to the story and to see what happens now due to what happens at the end. Plus I want to see more of the characters find love. I would gladly read the sequel as soon as it comes out.
