My thoughts: I give it ❤️❤️❤️❤️. I generally don’t generally care for most types of SciFi but this book is the exception. The author developed the characters beautifully and the plot and mystery is quite engaging. This does end in a HFN and a cliffhanger but for once I don’t mind. The next book in the series does not appear to be published yet but whether I read it or not does not matter to me. I can make up my own HEA at this point.
Dane Gareis thought that he would be broken forever – unable to be touched by any man after surviving a terrible assault. But everything changed the moment that Sean Harding became his bodyguard. Though now he faces more danger than ever with the evil Ydrath seeking his life, with Sean by his side and guarding his back he’s determined to no longer be ruled by fear.
Sean Harding believed he would always be haunted by the death of his old team on the police force by the mysterious Scarred Man. But now he is ruled by a passion to keep the beautiful and brilliant Dane Gareis safe from the Ydrath at all costs. His past, however, is not so easily escaped.
The danger he and Dane face is connected to the Powder that nearly took his life, but left him with inexplicable powers.
