THE GODS HAVE BEEN OUT OF BALANCE SINCE AMASU'S DISAPPEARANCE, BUT THE AKRANI IS BALANCING OUT.
Sergeant Blaise Carrington has been a sentinel on the Teaos wall for most of her adult life. A comfortable position despite her fear of heights. When Captain Kaiden Atherton recruits her for King Vaughn's task force, Blaise will be forced to face the truth which could shake her world into chaos.
The mission: Defeat the tyrant Queen of Balam, and prevent the release of her undead armies.
Newly appointed Captain Kaiden Atherton has trained his entire life for the mission, but when he meets the mysterious Sergeant Blaise, and senses her potential, he can't help but get close to her. With the destruction of Crenitha and her three kingdoms, Kaiden is put to the ultimate test, and has to choose between loyalty to his king, and loyalty to her.
Note: Of Flesh and Steel is a fantasy romance with spice. Blaise and Kaiden love to get on each others nerves, but they also know when they need to work together. This novel has the "one bed" and "forced proximity" tropes.
What Readers Are Saying
This book is a mix of fantasy, magic, angst, self-discovery, the right amount of spice, world and character building that made me put everything but reading this book on hold.
The newly crowned queen was sinking into the dark waters of the pool. The throne room was utter chaos, but no one seemed to notice their queen disappearing into the depths. He chuckled to himself, knowing it would go unheard in the rumble of scattering footsteps. It was all going exactly as he’d anticipated.
He watched as the alchyra rushed after the escaping Mathias.
A young maiden escaping with the crowd caught his eye. She screamed, “The queen.”
He gave her a curt nod and darted down to the pool's edge. He dragged Blaise’s limp body from the sanctum pool. The large room was nearly emptied by the time he carried her to the closest bedchamber. Gods, she’s heavy. Damn Sentinels and their gods forsaken training. He heaved Blaise onto the huge mattress. Her shallow breathing was the final piece that would allow him everything he wanted.
“And so it begins.” He retrieved a crystal from his pocket.
