Young Desmond Flynn is a sight to behold.


It was mentioned in A Strange Hymn that he was born out of the king’s harem. His mother escaped to protect him and raise him filled with love and affection. He was tasked to keep his powers to himself and hide his wings. After the death of his mother he was out for revenge.

Wrongs must be righted. A king must pay. And reals will fall for my vengeance.

He did meet a lovely woman who could tell the future and she told him of his. I was surprised to see that he wasn’t fond of a human mate at first but then he found that humans can be so much more and decided to search for his mate.

It was fun to see how he and Malaki met, how Malaki was willing to die for him. No one has ever cared for him before.

This novella is such a treat. Finally knowing what went on inside Des’s head pre-Callie to post-Callie events. He was a different man, and he changed quiet a lot since being with Callie and even more so since Callie is no fae but a human.

I love this quick and easy read. Desmond Flynn had it rough, but there’s still the mystery of his undead father. And a new challenge is facing him now, an immortal mate. He deserves every happiness he gets in his life.
