Posted by brriske
Magic has destroyed Daniel Cross’s family and now his only chance at happiness when he discovers the boy he’s in love with has a conduit dragon inside him. Already keeping his distance because of the young man’s murderous father, Daniel’s beast has started to roar, demanding that Mason be claimed before competition arrives. Daniel is so determined to keep from being a beast, he chooses to exile from the magical world completely. Mason Blackthorne will not be ignored. Unless he can find someone powerful enough to protect him, he will be enslaved, tortured and used by terrible warlocks to possess his power. He’s chosen Daniel, and if he can get the boy close enough, he knows he can convince him to be his bondmate. A powerful suitor has come to court Mason, but the mysterious man holds evil, blood soaked intentions. Can Daniel find a way to put the obligations of the dead behind him long enough to save Mason, or will his quest for revenge lose the only boy he’s ever loved to the same monster that killed his family?

Daniel just has to finish out the last day of his Senior year classes at the magic academy and then he can get away from his secret crush and all the attention that he gets from recently being identified as an Elite. Mason is also ready to be away from the Academy and most of all away from Daniel who has only chased away every other guy paying attention to Mason. But Mason has just found out that he’s a conduit and needs only the strongest to protect him. These two prove that not only do opposites attract but that there’s a thin line between love and hate. While both have only tried to push each other away, what they’re really trying to do is cover their massive attraction for one another. Honestly, in the early chapters, I didn’t know if I’d end up liking this book. It was hard to get in to at first because there seems to be a huge backstory that is difficult to understand for a book 1 in a new series. But after a couple chapters and a better grasp of what was going on, I was hooked. The scenes are very descriptive, the storyline is interesting and the sex was HOT. This book reminded me very much of an X-rated, adult version of Harry Potter.I rate this book 5 Hearts.
