Keir was a mere child when he was taken from his home and runes were carved on his tiny body. His father considered him a curse; the town people feared him and would destroy him; they called him the Blue Demon. To hide the scars covering his frame he kept his body wrapped in a tattered cloak. He was innocent of any wrongdoing but was imprisoned anyway. When Quin discovered him in the prison he was ill and dying. With a mighty explosion she freed both him and herself from the vile, dank jail. She transported him to her home in the stars. Even there his survival was uncertain; Quin bound herself to him for life to save him. During the bonding Quin discovered that Keir had healing powers. Intrigue and danger were at hand and Keir could not stay.
Author Pippa Jay offers readers a tale filled with love, romance, intrigue, danger, fantasy, science fiction and action. I enjoyed watching Keir and Quin’s relationship grow into love. But there is a more important aspect to this tale. The author has demonstrated the plight of those who are different. While many tolerate differences should they not be celebrated? I found it amazing that a father would reject his child because he was dissimilar to those around him. The father hated the son so much that he had him imprisoned. Pippa Jay is a talented writer. Her plot is captivating. I stayed up most of the night reading it. I just could not lay it down. Her lead characters are well-conceived. This is Jay’s debut novel but I am sure there will be several more to come from her in future.
