Sentinel’s Dagger (D’Vaire, Book 2)

by Jessamyn Kingley

Rumor has it that sentinels are as dangerous as they are mysterious. Unsatisfied with the limited knowledge they possess, the Dragon Court of D’Vaire’s two necromancers make the courageous decision to summon their soul-bound assassins. First to arrive is Gavrael. Transported from the cell that served as his home for over ninety years, he goes from a world of only gray to one vibrant with color. Unused to companionship, Gavrael finds that building relationships with his new family is difficult. Though they are warm, caring, and friendly, he struggles to translate the burgeoning thoughts in his mind into words, leaving him struggling to adapt and trapped in solitude.

Boredom has Gedeon wondering if there is any value in being a sentinel, but that changes the moment he is summoned to D’Vaire. Pleased with the opportunity he’s been given, Gedeon is determined to immerse himself in his new life. He tackles relating to everyone around him with all the fortitude galvanized into his soul at his resurrection. However, regardless of his resolve, he is baffled and frustrated when he meets Gavrael. His impatience only grows once he realizes the man is his mate.

Gavrael and Gedeon were never taught about matebonds. Ripped from isolation, they quickly learn that their old lives have ill-prepared them to handle the complexities of their new connection. Conflicting personalities cause the pair to have difficulty seeing eye to eye and agreeing on a plan for their future. Grappling with the concept of love, their journey forward is halted by the return of an old foe intent on settling a score against the D’Vaires. To find happiness together, the sentinels must accept that it will take more than their trusty daggers to finally lay the past to rest and claim their reward—eternal devotion.
