Review by Ambrosia

As the first girl child born to the dark elves, Eryhaen is rhaejena—princess—and desired by all of the men around her. Born with magical gifts that challenge even the most experienced sorcerers among her people, she has the awe of her people and the devotion of her three best friends and lovers. Brevin, Lanthan and Tykir have been at her side their whole lives and each of the three young men would do anything for her and each other.

But Eryhaen needs more than untutored if eager lovers. She is out of control, and she knows it. Her magic is raw and wild, and she is not the only one who’s started to see her as a danger.

She needs help.

The only possibility is Radin, a legendary sorcerer, returned from the dead but magically unconscious for a quarter of a century. Dreams and undeniable instincts tell her that he’s the solution to her problems, if she can only wake him up.

Once she does, what then? He may be the answer to her problems, but is the legendary lover the man for her? Or is he meant for someone else?

Out of this world! No, really! Jet Mykles not only managed to create a world where sex rules relationships as well as war, but also where battles rage only to be won by who gets to be ‘on top’ first, so to speak.

When two gods from two races leave the planet for decades, taking the spirit of one legendary sorcerer with them, the magic of chaos rules leaving one woman, destined for greatness, bursting with power she can’t control. It’s up to a number of people to help find the answer to her dilemma yet only magic can contain magic.

Three male friends, Tykir, Lanthan and Brevin grew up with Rhaejena princess, Eyrhaen, protecting her, loving her, dreaming of having her, yet she protects her virginity, saving it for him…Radin. Not only do they love her, but they love each other in a world without prejudice where sex is shared by all, regardless of gender.

Eyrhaen not only must learn to harness her powers, but she has lessons to learn about how to treat people and find love in her heart. Being a self-absorbed young woman who only seeks to please herself at the cost of other’s feelings, she leans towards madness as the magic she was born with spins into a whirlwind of chaotic frenzy affecting everyone on the planet.

This story is filled with strong, evocative writing and fantastic descriptions. I cared about the characters and what happened to them, they were so real! This story requires tissues and perhaps some anti-depressants for the heartrending roller coaster of emotions. Not to worry though, Mykles has it down pat and finishes with a resounding blow with love as the ultimate triumph. This book deserves every one of its five Cherries.
