Cassian is the bait when his Monarch wants to trap a Firebird. Are Firebirds beasts, or will Cassian discover that real monsters exist closer to home? Palace scribe Cassian is stunned when he’s called before his ruler, Great Monarch Maurus, to be the bait for trapping a Firebird—a dangerous predator and a beast of legend that lives high in the mountains of his country’s border. As he climbs a mountain, Cassian is injured, but a Firebird rescues him. Cassian discovers that Firebirds are not animals. Instead, he uncovers Arturri, an intelligent being from another world, living as a castaway. But Cassian is helpless to prevent Arturri’s capture by Maurus’ dangerous and evil head of security, Phrixus. When the secret beneath the palace is revealed, Maurus is more monstrous than even Cassian ever imagined. Who can Cassian trust? Can he save not only Arturri, but also the other prisoners of Maurus? Reader Advisory: This book contains a scene of attempted rape and sexual abuse.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Cassian is a scribe for his countries ruler, Maurus. Maurus is known to take advantage of his servants and workers and Cassian tries his best not to catch his eye. Maurus sends him on a mission, to capture the Firebird, who Cassian is led to believe is a monster, pure evil. What happens when Cassian gets saved by the Firebird and learns everything he has been taught about the creatures is wrong? How can he save the Firebird from the fate that is set for him?

This book was okay. The second half of the book is where the most excitement occurs and keeps you reading and wanting more. There are a few scenes where the idea of rape is discussed or the action occurs without it being described as such. That made me cringe. The story was interesting as to the relationship between Cassian and the Firebird, Arturri. The way that the author described the Firebird race sounded absolutely beautiful with such vibrant colors. I do wish there would have been a bit more suspense during the latter half of the book and that the first half of the book would have been a bit more about the relationship and difference in races, rather than just sex, or so it seemed.
