For a god, what could be closer to heaven than living in a safe haven like Sanctuary, with an endless supply of ambrosia, delivered by the beautiful bodies of the Doxies in Alton’s harem?
But unlike the majority of the gods in Sanctuary who are less than human, Cerberus isn’t exotic or fantastical. His appearance, his…habits…have become the horror stories whispered on the lips of Doxies.
And while Cerberus might be immortal, his pride is not indestructible. Seeing the love of a Doxie for a monster like the Chimera, shatters it.
A chance encounter with an undocumented Doxie named Owen begins to transform Cerberus’s life. At least until Alton removes Owen from Cerberus’s care, banning the god from training the boy—to protect him from Cerberus’s animal nature.
In reality, Alton’s motives are far more frightening. And the truth could kill Cerberus and Owen both.
It’s been almost a year since I was transported to this unbelievable paranormal work Adrienne Wilder has created. Almost a WHOLE year and I had no idea how much I truly missed it. Just the first few pages and I was thrust right back into it all. Even though The Chimera, Kaleb and Aaron are not in this story at all, you don’t really miss them because everything is still so vivid in your mind. The way this author writes, the detail, the intense scenarios, everything seems to just stick. It was like I just picked up where I left off and was reading about Cerberus and Owen. I love that about Adrienne Wilder…it’s been a year and all of the details are still with me. Her stories stick and I love it.
I want to start this summarizing off by saying…I LOVE Cerberus…love love love. If he was into the ladies I would have gladly been used up by him. He called to my heartstrings and I really couldn’t find anything not to love. Even though he believes himself to be a monster you can tell he’s nothing but heart and it made him so incredibly endearing.
Owen and Cerberus have a connection right from the beginning. Cerberus wants to help Owen and Owen feels safe with Cerberus. They make sense and they fit even though there chaos surrounding them.
Things don’t go as planned and Cerberus is forced to give up Owen which culminates in Cerberus losing his tentative grip on his humanity. The only one that can bring him back is Owen and Owen is dealing with his own turmoil.
Like the other books in the series. There are a lot of outside forces at play including other’s ulterior motives which are influencing Cerberus and Owen.
I can’t really say enough good things about this series. These are fantastic friggin books…they’re a whole other level of love and kink.
If you’re a lover of the series you’ll love this one as well.
