I am always amazed by Sapphire Knight, she has the ability to bring you into 9her world and you feel like your there living with her characters. This story didn’t disappoint and did the same thing for me.

In this time, he met his best-friend/ boss, whom he learned to protect with his own life through training with the Russian Mafyia. Through his loyalty to him, he met another best-friend who snuck her way into his life, teaching him love amongst loyalty leaving his heart open to allow for others to come into his life.

Only leaving him there to guide her and help her along the way in life, since she lived in the shadow of her evil sister and manipulative father.
