Kai Gracen has no intention of being anyone's pawn. A pity Fate and SoCalGov have a different opinion on the matter.
Licensed Stalkers make their living hunting down monsters and dangerous criminals, and their lives are usually brief, brutal, and thankless. Despite being elfin and cursed with a nearly immortal lifespan, Kai didn't expect to be any different. Then Ryder, the High Lord of the Southern Rise Court, arrived in San Diego, and Kai's not-so-mundane life went from mild mayhem to full-throttle chaos.
Now an official liaison between the growing Sidhe Court and the human populace, Kai is at Ryder's beck and call for anything a High Lord might need a Stalker to do. Unfortunately for Kai, this means chasing down a flimsy rumor about an ancient lost Court somewhere in the Nevada desert - a court with powerful magics that might save Ryder's - and Kai's - people from becoming a bloody memory in their Merged world's violent history.
The race for the elfin people's salvation opens unwelcome windows into Kai's murky past, and it could also slam the door on any future he might have with his own kind and Ryder.

"For fans of fantasy!"
Seriously, Rhys Ford does some really excellent and damn interesting world building with this series. But it's Greg Tremblay that elevates this to auditory art.
This story was like listening to a graphic novel come to life. Greg Tremblay perfectly captures the action and excitement of the story and brings it to life. The story and the narration is an experience.
This isn't a romance. While it has hints of possible romance to happen in the series, it's first and foremost a fantasy story.
In this installment elfin outcast and Stalker Kai Gracen is once again importuned to help Ryder, the High Lord of the Southern Rise Court.
The action in this start heavy and doesn't stop until the very end. It's a roller coaster ride that all I can say is hold on to your seat, 'cause it gets bumpy on this ride!
I had such a great time listening to this and that has everything to do with Greg Tremblay's wonderful narration. His accents, pacing and timing are all absolutely perfect for this story (and series). Kai is one of my favorite Rhys Ford characters, the prickly bastard, and I can hardly wait for more from his world.
For fans of fantasy and audio this is definitely recommended!
"When Amazng meets Fantastic..SPOILERS...SPOILERS"
In the middle of action, adventure, betrayal, demented elf's trying to play God, and laying the foundation to relationships bound in loyalty, you're gifted with a slow burning romance between Ryder and Kai.
If you are looking for erotica between two men, this story isnt for you.
But if you are looking for a story between two men who learn to respect each other, who learn to care for each other, who learn to protect each other, who look past lust and sexual desire in leui of truly seeing what is real in each others heart and soul through out an adventure full of dragons, creatures made of nightmares, explosions, gun fights, and so much d@mn action you almost miss the fantastic mystery surrounding their adventure, then this is a story for you.
💖 I absolutely loved everything about this story and Im so d@mn excited to see where Ryder and Kai's relationship will end up.
My God, there were some truly beautiful moments between Kai and a couple of the characters in this story. Ryder pouring his heart out to Kai -sniff, sniff- just beautiful. But the moment that brought unshed tears to my eyes was between Kai and Sparky.
"I fell in love with that young boy lyng on my workbench as still as he could so we could undo what a monster did to him."
-shaky sigh- Greg, Greg, Greg! That man has me falling in love with these characters he passionately potrays and thats talent when its done with only a voice 💖
"exceptional narration of a great story"
As I said above. Exceptional narration as usual. Really brings Rhys Ford's books to life. One 9f my favourite characters too.
I love Greg's rendition of both Kai and Ryder. As always the story he is working with is brilliant - lyrical, descriptive, emotional, funny. But it's his prickly rendition of the main characters who make it for me in this audio book. Fantastic!
