Blurb: Marcus, bored with his new role as Daniel and Aiden’s bodyguard, agrees to go on a mission into the Nether. Seeing this as his chance to do something exciting, he tries his best to put up a good front for his assigned partner, Edmond Elena of the house of the rabbit, of which he shares a passionate yet sad past.
Edmond holds deep scars from his past with Marcus, scars he doesn’t want reopened. Still, the pieces of Marcus that he sees beneath his armor of strength and aloofness weakens his heart to him even as he realizes Marcus hasn’t changed in all these years.
Fighting off their growing desires and feelings for each other, the two must find the stolen tomes of the previous Mediums. Their search for the books brings them into contact with the mysterious group known as the Blood of Aeon, the group responsible for the death of the Dalrymple family forty years ago, and possible secrets that could destroy their world.

Review: It’s best to read these books in order. Marcus and Edmond were together in college but due to a misunderstanding they broke up. Now years later the two are tasked with a mission to find missing tomes that are highly important to Aiden.
I really enjoy this series. I hope it continues. So much goes on in this book from dangerous situations to mysteries needing to be solved. I was on the edge of my seat wanting to know who was behind everything and why.
Marcus and Edmond broke my heart at what had been done to these two and the wasted years they were forced to endure. A couple of times I wanted to smack Marcus upside the head for his stubbornness.
I am looking forward to reading more in this series as the mystery continues. Great read.
