"How does it feel?" he breathes against her ear, his hands trailing up and down her arms. "How does what feel?" she replies, unable to keep her voice from quivering. "To be branded by my fire." She levels a stare at him. "Like fire."

Branded


Branded

There is nothing small or plain about the man before her. His mere presence demands attention, all eyes turning to him, and, while he is not muscular by any means, he has a dark stare that sends shivers up all mortals' spines.
He lounges on his gleaming throne, his eyes locked on her, as his finger traces the edge of the goblet, filled to the brim with the godly drink that all immortals drink. An almost angry, stiff smile spreads across his thin lips.
"Come." With his free hand, he beckons her and she finds herself walking forward, head held high; she won't show him the slightest ounce of fear. He will have her respect when he earns it.
His eyebrows raise at the blatant lack of respect from her. "You little she-devil." He runs his tongue along his lips slowly as though he's had the most decadent delicacy, and she briefly wonders what use would his tongue be good for.
"You will do well as my consort."
He laughs when her breathing picks up and her heart hammers, blood thumping in her ears. Waving his hand, she's jerked forward by a thin sliver of magic, forced to kneel before him, and then his face is before hers. His eyes are wide-set, and there's a spray of freckles across his crooked nose.
This god is not handsome, but his voice speaks velvet sin, and his eyes are heavy with a tainted darkness but are kind. "This will hurt only a second," he murmurs against her temple and his hand glows, a shimmery gold light, and her side is burning, stuck in open coals, raked through by a heated sword, and she's sweating with the effort not to scream.

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters.What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gre...

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

izzymerchant: This book is truly special. The plot, the characters and the way the story flows is so engrossing and magical that I found it virtually impossible to put down. The character relationships were particularly fascinating and Melenthia's character was fascinating. Cannot wait to see what happens next!

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot.

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...
