I picked up this book because the blurb intrigued me. Ruby is the first in the Stones of Power series and for being the first it definitely kept me interested.
Morgorth and Aishe are a good match throughout the story. These two men have a push pull relationship. The author did a great job on the writing and amped up the romance as Morgoth and Aishe built a relationship together. I enjoyed this book and I'll have to pick up the rest of the series. Lucky the rest of the books are out. I want to find out what happens next.
I gladly recommend this book for the exciting story between its pages.
Morgorth is a mage on the planet Karishian. There is little he hates more than the Stones of Power -- gemstones infused with magick by the first seven mages ever born. So when a sorcerer gets hold of a major stone, a ruby, Morgorth has no choice but to go after him. But, to his irritation, he is not alone. Aishe is a dialen whose tribe was massacred by the sorcerer, and is now on a mission of vengeance. The attraction is instant between them, but Morgorth keeps his distance. Because of a traumatic childhood and a deadly destiny, he has no desire for emotional complications. But Aishe's very presence challenges Morgorth's resolve.
Not only does Morgorth begin to admire Aishe's strength and intelligence, but he begins to see Aishe as a friend. As their hunt continues and their time together lengthens, their bond deepens, as does Morgorth's fear. If he becomes the monster that destiny claims he will, will he hurt Aishe? Will he harm the one person who sees right through him? Who accepts him wholeheartedly? Determined to not let that happen, Morgorth keeps Aishe at a distance, but when Aishe is kidnapped by the sorcerer, what will Morgorth do to get him back? (233 Pages)
