Publication date: September 7th 2016
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Romance
On the outside, Mayr seems to have it all: a successful career as Head of the Guard for a prominent politician, family and friends who adore him, and the attention of beautiful women. But appearances are a good way to bury secrets, including the fact that while Mayr is a romantic at heart, searching for the one person to share his life with, his lovers keep leaving him.
When his last girlfriend takes him back and suggests an intimate night with Tash, one of her lovers, Mayr reluctantly agrees. The last thing he expects is to fall hard for Tash, who is nothing like Mayr’s previous lovers—and about to undertake the Uldana Trials. If Tash fails, he’ll likely die. If he succeeds, he must give up Mayr, and become the latest to leave Mayr standing alone with a broken heart.
Archer Kay Leah was raised in Canada, growing up in a port town at a time when it was starting to become more diverse, both visibly and vocally. Combined with the variety of interests found in Archer’s family and the never-ending need to be creative, this diversity inspired a love for toying with characters and their relationships, exploring new experiences and difficult situations.
Archer most enjoys writing speculative fiction and is engaged in a very particular love affair with fantasy, especially when it is dark and emotionally charged. When not reading and writing for work or play, Archer is a geek with too many hobbies and keeps busy with other creative endeavors, a music addiction, and whatever else comes along. Archer lives in London, Ontario with a same-sex partner and their cat.

I really have to say I truly enjoyed this story as well as A Question of Council. I was lucky enough to have received both of the books from the author, Archer Kay Leah. For this review, I’m going to sort of put them both together. I immensely enjoyed Archer Kay Leah’s writing style. I liked the world she crafted and the interactions amongst the characters. There was really wonderful historical/old world feel to her writing.
What I really enjoyed was the way the relationships are done in both stories. The characters struggle with their wants and what the world has given them. Aeley and Mayr are best friends. That is clear in The Question of Council. To see Mayr’s story continue in Four is a really nice continuation of series.
I really have to say this series is so well done. The m/m, f/f interactions are just so real. The characters are well developed and this is just a series you will find yourself skipping chores and real life to continue reading.
