Protect it at all costs.
That’s what rugby player Hunter Best’s mother told him before she died. But when Hunter surprises an intruder in his Chicago apartment, he discovers her amulet stolen. Hunter pursues the thief—all the way through a strange vortex. He wakes in a bizarre and violent world, a benighted realm on the threshold of civil war.Christelle's rating:
The queen has become a ruthless tyrant, punishing any who oppose her, weakening the kingdom’s defenses against the brutal Henerans. To survive, Hunter must depend on the man who robbed him, a handsome former spy named Dax, now a leader of the resistance that believes the queen is an imposter—a Heneran disguised by magic… who also looks identical to Hunter’s mother.
There’s no love lost between Hunter and Dax, and even if Hunter grudgingly agrees with the resistance, he just wants to reclaim his property and go home. But he might be the only one who can oppose the queen and end her reign of terror.
Still on my discovery of the MM fantasy genre. I’m warming up to this trope and this book is a good addition to my reading belt.
On his way home, Hunter surprises in his apartment a thief who has just stolen his dead mother’s broach. Pursuing him to get his possession back, he ends up in a “vortex” and then in a parallel medieval-type world with a kingdom, some strange creatures, some geo-political tensions and a rebellion brewing.
Without any way to come back to his “world”, Hunter has to grab his mind, adapts fast and rely on his “thief”, aka Dax, who, in this world, is a member of the rebellion and a force to reckon with, not a bad thing as Dax keeps saving and saving Hunter’s life.
The world building is quite intriguing, It’s fast-paced, and engaging enough that I kept turning the pages to get to the outcome. I knew there would be no romance but there was enough feels between our two MCs to satisfy me and anyway, the story was so engaging that this story entertained me well.
For fan of fantasy gay fiction, this is a good one.
