Mortal Skin By Lily Mayne
Book/Novel Author: Lily Mayne
Book/Novel Title: Mortal Skin
I first saw the Folk when I was a little boy. When they started appearing in my garden, with their unnatural, cruel beauty and honeyed words and veiled taunts. I grew up with big green eyes watching me from the forest. Whispers from the trees. Shimmering skin darting between the bushes. Black creatures always lurking in the shadows.While they were here, I thought nothing of them. It wasn’t until they were gone that I realise it wasn’t… normal.But it isn’t until I’m twenty-one, when my life is in ruins, that they come back to take me away.They say I’m not fully mortal. They say I should be among them. The Unseelie Ruler wants me on her land for reasons no one will explain to me, but it’s her aloof, painfully beautiful son who captures my attention and refuses to let go.The cold, black-eyed assassin prince who strikes fear into the hearts of all Folk. Who I’ve been warned about, repeatedly.Who watches me always.I don’t trust the Folk, so I ignore their fearful advice to stay away from him. I ignore all of them except him, despite everything telling me that he can’t be trusted—that he’s just as bad as the rest of them, that he’s playing games with me, the clueless mortal held here against his will.But I want him.Mortal Skin is the first in a mm fae romance trilogy about a dark fae assassin prince and a mortal who is thrown into the cruel world of the Folk.Warning: This m/m love story contains explicit sexual content and is not suitable for young readers. It also contains depictions of violence and deals with the death of a close family member. This trilogy will follow the same couple who get their HEA eventually, but book one ends on a cliffhanger.
Ash and Lonan story is full, robust, and steamy hot. It’s deep and rich with twist and turns….. you’re pulled in from the very first words and you are driven to continue reading to the very end…..which pissed me off entirely and I seriously thought long and hard about reducing my rating based solely on the not ending. I love Lonan, he’s my favorite mc of all, he’s dark, twisted, a survivor with a heart of pure gold, sadly misunderstood and facing the darkness all alone. Sexy and tender….. smoking hot. Now the waiting..uh, highly recommend reading this one and as always Happy Reading!!! Guess I will read Wyn….
I failed to see the cliffhanger note. HATE THEM! So author goes on my list of not to reads. This is a good read and normally I love this author’s work. Sadly this will likely be the last. Yeah to cliffhanger lovers. Those of us who are not, beware.
That cliffhanger had me SCREAMING! The ending scene between Lonan and Ash had my heart breaking for them both. I’m waiting on the edge of my seat for the next one!
I live all this author s books she is fantastic once your done with one book you can’t wait. to read the next.
This was an amazing read – in fact all of Lily’s books are magnificent. Each page had my head spinning- too many unanswered questions hoping we get ,ore about Ash & the Seelie very soon. Highly recommend this as a read.
Went into this book, happy as a clam, ready for spice and magic and romance. Exited feeling like I’ve been gutted and the wound was left to fester. I ache, Lily. My heart hurts. This book was beautiful.
