Review: I am still on the fence about this book after I finished it. I decided to take a couple of days and think over the book before I wrote my review.

Soren and Sillara are twins that were born eighteen years ago. Their birth was a miracle because getting pregnant is few and far between. What makes it even more of a miracle is that they are twins which have never happened. Everyone knew from the day they were born that they were special. Each has a chosen path. Soren will rule after his parents death and Sillara will be married to a king.

This is not your normal everyday read. When you read this book you need to take a whole day so that you can process everything. If you have any distractions then you will be lost and will never get the story. There was just so much going on in this story. There is corruption, sex, backstabbing, and adventure.

There were many words that I didn’t know how to pronounce and just sounded them out the best I could. The children are from two different cultures and bringing them together would’ve been hard. The author did a wonderful job with characters and not getting mixed up.

It takes an author that is really into their books and cares about the readers to write a book like this. I was taken out of my comfort zone and I am still trying to process everything. It was hard to know who to trust in this book and who would be with who. It just kept me guessing and asking myself, did that really happen?

This book contains orgies, M/M, F/F, bondage, anal sex, and incest just to name a few. This isn’t really the kind of books that I normally read. So that is why I was having a hard time taking this book in. I didn’t give up. I just kept on reading it until I reached the end. I am still in shock.

So if you like books that are out of the norm and you want something different then this is the book for you.
