Although I did not read the first book in this series the author did a great job of bringing me up to date. Garen, a guardian and protector and his husband Luke, a shaman and healer have finally left for vacation, a vacation they both need due to the serious and dangerous jobs they both perform.
Both Garen and Luke decided on South Island where Garen could visit his longtime friend Tane. Finally, time for themselves, time to enjoy each other and time to just forget about evil and concentrate on good. Well, once again, the adage: best plans of mice and men, comes true and a long-awaited vacation will be anything but. Garen’s friend Tane is a forest ranger and trampers are disappearing (I realize that trampers are hikers) leaving Garen and Luke to suspect there is a demon causing this.
When Garen meets Tane’s new boyfriend he is very suspicious of him because in his entire life Tane has never wanted anything but a no strings attached relationship and now he is madly in love with a younger man who has been bullied and abused. Garen doesn’t trust this new boyfriend and wonders if he is the demon they are looking for, but Luke disagrees. You will have to discover the truth about this young man yourself.
Sex, murder, and a demon—this book had it all.
