Randrik alt Harbinnen is a bit of a rouge, more interested in fighting and having a good time with women than settling down. He finds himself reluctantly thrust into the role of hero, but what is so endearing is that he tries so hard not to be heroic, that his actions are a lot more realistic. Under orders to try and seduce, Perian, a young adept at the Temple of Light, he has no idea what challenges await him.

Perian is a Drevnya, a race of people with powers such as healing. She was brought up by human parents, who tried to inhibit her powers by instilling in her that they were immoral and evil. How were they to know that her powers would manifest anyway, no matter how much they tried to prevent it?

Someone else has noticed Perian, Azdrefel the souleater and the creator of their world. He was banished into the Everdark to stop him from destroying the very thing he created. But now he has become free, but there is only one way for him to stay that way. He has to inhabit the body of a child at the moment of birth. And he has decided that Perian will be the mother of that child…

This is a story of romance and adventure. The sexual tensions simmers between Perian and Randrik throughout. There are so may layers to this story, it's the sort of book you get lost in and forget there is actually a real world outside of it. I enjoyed it immensely.
