When he’s caught in the act of forbidden magic, Terebin’s first thought is to flee. As the last sorcerer, his survival hinges on keeping a low profile among the refugees in the fortress he calls home. Iskan, the guard who catches him, has other plans: keeping order means slaying sorcerers. But a spark stays Iskan’s hand, kindling the first flames of attraction.
After a dragon razes the fort, Terebin finds himself bound to the defense of a people he loathes--and with Iskan at his side, the sword to Terebin’s shield.
As they struggle to save their band of refugees from ravenous monsters, Terebin digs away at Iskan’s defenses… And finds that his own are crumbling. Iskan is everything Terebin never thought he wanted. Even with an ocean of secrets between them, one kiss is all it takes to bind their fates.
