I have had Wicked Wind (Solsti Prophecy #1) on my Kindle for awhile now, just waiting for the right moment to read it. When Kissed By A Demon Spy became available to review I thought it was the perfect opportunity to start easing myself into this world.
Kidnapped as a teen and forced into a life of sexual slavery, Garnet vowed long ago to do whatever she could to spare others her fate. When karma comes full circle with an offer of freedom for her and her young son, she jumps at the chance.
Masquerading as a village innkeeper, Aden keeps his espionage work secret from the gentle pixies he lives among. Using his skills to prevent a group of vicious demons from attacking the innocent, his world is draped in mist, shadow, and danger.
Steeped in shame, Garnet is loath to share her past with Aden. But Aden senses a sweet, loyal strength in her that no amount of horror can erase. His dangerous work is the opposite of the stability Garnet craves. Yet Aden’s patience and strength make him the hero she never had. When the enemy targets them, Garnet and Aden realize that honesty is the truest form of courage.
This novella is a companion piece to the Solsti series and can be read as a stand-alone.
I was pulled into this story almost from the first page. While I still don’t know a lot about these novels and the realms of pixies, demons, porters and other various characters, it’s clear that that world that the Solsti Prophecy novels are based in is a rich, unique, and vibrant place. It sounds exactly like somewhere I would want to live – bad guys and all! It’s well thought-out, well written, and beautifully descriptive.
Being a novella, Garnet and Aden’s story is not long. But you don’t need a long story to experience their sweet romance. Their relationship is such a beautiful, honest and open relationship (as well as full of steam!). There is no way they could go wrong. They are perfect together and just what each other needs.
I am now super keen to start at the beginning with Wicked Waves and learn more about this world and the characters in it. I know that each novel in this series will draw me in and have me completely engrossed and I’m looking forward to losing myself in the pages of a Sharon Kay novel again soon.
