Overview

EVEN VILLAINS NEED A HERO.

**NOT ILLUSTRATED**

Those with paws eat those with hooves. This is what the wyvern gods of Wefrivain teach. The fauns of the islands are the slaves and food animals of their paw-footed counterparts, and the wyverns maintain the hierarchy. In return, wyverns are fed and worshiped. These days, however, faun pirates are spreading new ideas. Their charismatic leader, Gwain, has taught them to kill wyverns, and they are effectively killing off Temple Police. Gwain’s pirates are starting to worry Morchella, the Priestess of the wyvern cult.

She thinks she’s found an answer in the person of Gerard Holovar, the new captain of her Temple Police. However, upon his promotion, Gerard strikes up a quarrel with Silveo Lamire, the admiral of Morchella’s Temple ships and her second in command. Silveo has a reputation for cruelty, cunning, and a biting wit. He’s a foxling - a minority species - and rumors say that he was once an assassin, who clawed his way to power from a childhood of poverty and abuse. He cultivates serial affairs with persons ranging from his own lieutenants to dock prostitutes. On the surface, Silveo could not be more different from Gerard - a member of the dominant species class, born to money and power, adhering to strict codes of honor, and devoted to his wife.

When Gerard is promoted, Silveo is intimidated. Gerard’s presence seems to jeopardize the position Silveo has painfully carved out for himself. Silveo threatens to kill Gerard if he stays with the Temple service.

In spite of their differences, Morchella believes that Gerard and Silveo have between them the skills to catch Gwain. She orders them to work together. They make little progress until Silveo meets Gerard’s wife, Thessalyn, and hears her sing. Silveo is generous to Thessalyn and vocal in his admiration of her talents. Gerard finds it difficult to hate anyone who is kind to his wife. The three of them develop a complex friendship that deepens as details from their pasts reveal that they have more in common than they thought. Their hunt for the charismatic pirate will lead them to dark places. On the other side, they just might find redemption.

    One of my favorite series!

    I have been an avid reader of Abbie Hilton's work for years now, and this five part series is one of my favorite stories ever. The characters are engaging and real. You by turns love and hate them all. The plot is full of unexpected twists, but follows a logical progression. There are surprises, but no confusing moments. The world is beautiful, dark, dangerous and complex--it has been completely fleshed out. Don't let the size scare you off, at the end you will still be wanting more.

    Great Book

    I could not let the first review go unchecked, the person has issues with "homosexuals", although none of the characters in the book are human, I find that strange. The book is great and the characters are very deep with issues, Abigail delves into the psychological aspects of the characters, which make the book more interesting. The action is great and there is lots of suspense. Check it out.

    Sooo disappointed

    I read the first book in this series and liked it so i bought this one which has all five books in it. I wish someone would have warned me that this was going to turn into a homosexual rompfest so i wouldnt have wasted my money.

    Very Good! Engaging characters that do not just fade away.

    Very enjoyable ADULT book. I bought the complete set after reading book 1. The characters are all "animal" with very interesting personalities. The depth of their past experiences makes for interesting decisions. To me it was a way to broach certain subjects in a way to make it easier to apply them to humans with more understanding. Unlike so many other books I have read I can still remember all the characters. It has not just meshed into another book I have read and it leaves one thinking about it.
