Cole Shilo is a wizard from another dimension serving the Grand Marshall, Lord Kyle Dressen on Cornerstone Deep. Cole’s job is to serve the Lords of the Realm by protecting its citizens.
Mianna is Cole’s soul mate who died six lifetimes ago. Cole is searching for his true love, convinced that he will find her reincarnated – her soul will call to him and he will answer.
For years, Lord Dressen has lusted for the beautiful artist, Anna, but she has been unresponsive to his romantic overtures. Finally, Dressen has the perfect opportunity to fully claim her. When Cole and his brothers find Anna breaking curfew she is placed under a spell and delivered to the Grand Marshall. It is only later that Cole realizes he has been manipulated into making a terrible mistake.
This is a complicated story that immerses the reader fully in an intriguing alternate reality. Cole and his brothers are likable, slightly tarnished, heroes who are faced with some unsettling moral dilemmas. Most of the pieces come together near the end as the sub-plots mesh into a generally satisfying conclusion though there was one fairly major issue left unresolved. The foundation for a new series has been solidly constructed. I hope there will be sequels as the author has begun building a unique universe populated with interesting denizens.
