The second installment in a trilogy. Again we get the perspective of the abductions of the Gentlemen brothers from the middle child’s view. Logan always felt out of place as the middle child with no defined role. When he finds himself rescued by an angel with silver wings and taken to a secret island to grow up amongst the resistance, he’s always looking for his brothers.
Logan had some interesting issues to deal with as the story progressed, but I’m not allowed to reveal spoilers. After a confrontation that completely alters him, he’s self-conscious and retreats into himself, only allowing himself to fantasize over the man who rescued him. Lucius, who is the head of the resistance by night and a Lord of the Realm by day. Sure his attraction will never be returned, he lives day to day.
I liked the way the relationship between Lucius and Logan evolved and how they both discover that dreams can come true if you just put yourself out there a little bit instead of hiding. I found this book to be much steamier than the first and found Logan’s vulnerability refreshing. I look forward to the continuation of the dark back story that is driving the whole trilogy.
When death was near, a man in clockwork wings saved his life...
The Great Wave sent the lower class into dirigibles high above the wealthy landowners. The Gentlemen brothers lived in such an airship with their father until the night men came to steal them.
Logan Gentlemen thought he lost his family that night. Despite the age or class difference, he fell in love with Lucius, the man that saved his life. Logan fears the lust is one-sided—after all, who wants sex with him and his mechanical arm? That thought is soon shattered by a passionate kiss. As Logan and Lucius try to figure out their feelings, they discover the horrible truth about the past.
Traitors lurk in the palace. Lies grow between the new lovers. And at the end of it all, it’s brother vs. brother.
