Being a Lord or Lady entails service and sacrifice. An ancient evil awakes in the land that Miryea and Adimir oversee on behalf of their gods. Miryea tries to find a way to save Adimir’s life.
I had a problem reading this book until I realized that this is part of a series and is actually the second book in the Seasons of Soranian Cycle. I think a lot of background information that is needed to fully enjoy this book is in the first one because it seemed like there was something missing in the first part. The spanking and some of the lifestyle choices that Adimir and Miryea live seems almost counter to what their society believes, though that is a good parallel to our society today with regard to the BDSM lifestyle.
As the story progresses, the reader realizes that both Miryea and Adimir take a journey of discovery about themselves as they learn what it will take on both their parts to save Adimir’s life and the people and land. From the sex magic to role reversals, the story draws you in as you read further. There were still a few confusing passages, at least to me, that would have probably been explained earlier, but overall is a fairly good story.
