We learn more about the Taint, Wielders and how this complicated, prejudiced world works. August starts off as a happy bar owner, but through circumstances beyond his control, he finds himself being indoctrinated into a male wielder cult. He thinks he can handle it, can keep himself apart and just observe and report. Gradually he's pulled in until telling right from wrong becomes blurred, until a vulnerable young guy called Kyle (from the first book) is brought to the cult headquarters and August's protective instincts are triggered.
I read this in one sitting, a page turner from start to finish. Nothing, no typos, plot holes, over or under done description, pointless dialogue, telling rather than showing, or other errors, pulled me out of the story, which is rare for me. I could just immerse myself in the tale and enjoy.
Five, well deserved stars.
The plot came across as very anti-women. In the book men had powers but they always came with a price, which women didn't seem to endure. This gave some of the male characters an incredibly negative view of women. This paired with the gay romance sub-plot, I was surprised to find the author was female.
I felt there was a lot of repetitive dialogue, which felt a little clunky. For example, when talking to Skid, August often said his name at the beginning of every new piece of dialogue.
