Review: I really enjoyed reading this intriguing story. I couldn’t believe how old the directrix was simply because of an ancient ring. The ring itself was beautifully described.
The powers the ring held were awe-inspiring.
There were so many twists in this book with people attempting to back stab each other to get the ring Julian had by any means necessary. Loved the history and origin of the ring. Felt very sad for Amenhotep having to watch his lover, Nergal, pass away. What intrigued me the most were the wings on Nergal’s back.
Well written and full of drama, intrigue and mystery. The sex between Julian and Dinesh was hot. Great read.
