Orphan. Soldier. Feared pirate?
When tragedy strikes and Reynold finds himself alone at a young age, he doesn’t give up. He works his way toward the great kingdom of Detmarya and joins the military in hopes of one day finding his stolen sisters and exacting revenge on those who took everything from him.
Reynold wasn’t born a fighter. He comes from an ancient people known for their peaceful ways. For his younger sisters though, he’d destroy his own soul. After all, he has nothing else.
Until he meets the beautiful Lira, who makes him feel alive for the first time in a decade. She gives him hope and a reason to smile—something he hasn’t done in a really long time.
Can he hold on to this possible future? Or will it slip through his fingers like all he has ever known?
Ren has been one of my favorite characters in the entire series. So I was conflicted about reading this. On one hand, I’d get to read more about his backstory and get an entire short story about him. But on the other hand, these short stories have been a little heartbreaking, and I don’t know if my poor abused heart can take it! But … my curiosity won out, of course.
The story starts with an action scene, and it never got boring at any point. It was a little longer than the rest of the short stories, but I absolutely was not complaining. And I wasn’t able to predict what was going to happen. There were ups and downs, and so many twists and turns, it managed to give me a little bit of emotional whiplash, but in a good way.
I’m absolutely going to recommend reading this one, as well as the other short stories. There’s still some time to catch up on the series before the last book in the trilogy is released, and you can get your hands on this awesome short story FOR FREE here!
