In the kingdom of Sareen, Kaidyn Riverveil’s mother is the queen, he is training to be an officer and he is looked down on by the nobles due to him being a Half-Blood. Kaidyn’s father was from the kingdom of Iskandir and when war between the two kingdoms broke out his father left.
Kaidyn has one friend, Luck who is the son of an undercook and together they get into trouble. One night they ended up in a bar fight leaving Kaidyn badly hurt and laying on the ground. When he woke up it was in a strange bedroom with a strange man watching him. Sorin is a healer and he couldn’t stand by and leave Kaidyn laying on the ground hurt and using his gift he healed him but he couldn’t heal the anger festering inside him, anger that Kaidyn has lived with his entire life.
Kaidyn found it hard to believe that anyone would save him since no one cares about him except for Luck and when he discovers that Sorin is no ordinary healer but a noble, and not just any noble but a noble from a very famous family he finds it hard to accept his determination to be with him but Sorin is very caring and convincing. Sorin also has a secret that he is hesitant to reveal to Kaidyn.
Kaidyn and Sorin get into a relationship very quickly and because of that I was sure that I would not like this book but as I read it it became a beautiful story of two men who couldn’t be more different and yet found what each was always looking for love. When war erupts and Kaidyn is sent to fight with other’s like himself, ungifted and Half-Bloods he has to leave behind the one person he loves more than anyone and has no doubt that he and his men are going to their deaths.
There was a lesson to be learned and that is that Kaidyn automatically hated any noble and never considered that each person is different. There were surprises and moments that broke my heart but I will not reveal anything more about that. Sorin and Kaidyn were wonderful characters and when I love the characters in a book I love the book as well.
