BLURB:

Since the Mayflower brought the first five Cubi to America, the race has looked forward to this day. But an overlooked historical detail can bring everything they have worked toward to an end.

Daniel is settling in and trying to find a rhythm after the latest change in his life. With the help of Seldon, Caledon, and the Grand Lady Geodin, Daniel begins his education and development to rise as a full-fledged Incubus.

Seldon is not a man who rattles easily, but the latest changes to his life after the Cubi Court Order has sent the old Incubus out in uncharted territory. Falling madly in love with a human raised boy does not help uncomplicate things—especially when that boy is not yet versed enough in the Cubi ways to not mistake feeding for love or love for feeding.


Are you ready to continue Daniel’s journey in the world of Cubi?
So now, after Seldon got his punishment and Daniel’s true nature it’s revealed, things are getting a little to official for Daniel’s liking.
His education as Incubi continues with the help of both Caledon and Seldon. But his human side, how he sees the world around him, is still there.

This series being an erotic read, there is not so much to say without spoiling the story for you dear reader, but I will try my best.

The dosing of both Daniel and Seldon is provided by Caledon (mainly). These three are getting closer and closer, but Daniel still can’t see the difference between lovemaking and feeding without being dosed. For him having sex without a dose it’s considered lovemaking. That leads to a very interesting situation between the three.

We will find out in this sequel that every monarch is to bring new powers to his/her people. The same is happening with Daniel too. He empowers his Cubi, both Incubi and Succubi with his power. What is his power? Aren’t you a curious little thing…? Read the book luv. How the actual empowering takes place, I leave it to your dirty/not so dirty imagination…

Remember from the first book, the slave who almost killed a red-eye? Him having a protein what’s dangerous to Incubi and Succubi? Well, we will learn about that too, and the development of that situation brings us to the next chapter of the Cubi world.

The book, as we’re used too by now, gave us a hot read! I’m anxiously waiting for the next book to see how things will go for Daniel, Seldon and Caledon.

P.S.
Well, the next sequel will have a new character called Levidon. You may think it’s coincidence, but it’s not. So let me have my moment of fame to announce you that I will be, as Levidon, in Meraki’s next book *winkwink #hashtagtime #braggingmuch #mebeingamuse

BLURB:

Vampire. Incubus. Demigod. Weapon.

Matthew has many names, but none as distressing as pet. A slave to incubus High King Malarath, Matthew is tired. Tired of fighting. Tired of losing those he loves. Tired of the torture. And, in his despair, his body begins to decay around him.

The High King, angered that his pet is dying, brings in the one person who might be able to fix Matthew: High Lord General Tarrick.

While all trust Matthew had in the general is gone, maybe there is hope in the situation. All Matthew needs to do is start acting like an incubus and put on a show.

Author’s note: This book contains dark scenes. Reader discretion is advised.


levilogooptimummFinally!

Where should I begin, where should I begin

So when Matthew awakes he finds himself…hahahaha, you know me already, I will not tell what’s going to happen! But I will tell you this:
Matthew is a slave again. He’s at the mercy of the High King and Prescott, the leader of Argonauts. But mercy is a word that those two don’t have in their vocabulary. Matthew is tortured, humiliated, starved…and we can witness all this in great detail. This book is darker than the previous ones, much more torture, and much more pain. You find yourself wondering many times, what you would do if you were in his situation? Well me, myself I would end myself in a heartbeat. And that thought crosses Matthews mind too. Its then when he starts to turn into a ghoul. Now you may ask what’s a ghoul? Let’s just say that when a vampire is depressed his body starts to die. He starts to rot alive. And that’s what’s happening to Matthew.

Although Samantha’s advice to not let the King break him, he finds himself broke inside. The only thing keeps him calm is that the household of the High King doesn’t know about Samantha…well, that will change…

Matthew misses Devak big time, but he’s pushing the feelings aside. Him, not mourning his love, adds to the process to become a ghoul. Well, High King Malarath can’t have that, after all, he “invested” so much in his pet (and by “invested” I mean tortured).
You can’t even imagine the torture, physical, psychical and emotional, Matthew suffers. But then something happens, something really, really bad that makes him start to fight back. Him being alone (another thing to go into the column of ’reasons become a ghoul’) and following Samantha’s advice, he most trust Tarrick with his secrets.

Well, f**k Tarrick! That guy still irritates me with his bullshit behavior. In my honest opinion, it’s all pretending, to be strong and gathered and confident. The asshole needs a wiping, a good one, that I hope I will see happening in the future…oops! I said future? Yeah…there will be a future with interesting happenings, turnabouts and I hope with Matthew becoming what he’s destined for… Oh my god, my fingers are itching to “tell” you more but I can’t…I’m so, so sorry…not.

This book reveals many secrets, many reasons why the war is still on. We will meet new characters, interesting characters, and old ones too. We will witness Tarrick doing something that no one would expect from him, why? Well not because he loves Matthew right? Right…

Although this book is long, I could keep reading it for another month or eleven.

Jex Lane, you did it again, so please hurry up with the next book!
