The First Sentinel (D’Vaire, Book 7)

by Jessamyn Kingley

For two thousand years, Skeleton Lord Albrecht Daray was trapped behind thick walls in a compound that tore away his memory. These days, the sentinels belong to the Council of Sorcery and Shifters, and Albrecht’s little more than a blackened set of bones struggling to understand his place in this new world. He’s happy to be out of his prison yet fears he will never be whole like his brethren.

Venerable Knight Vann Ruarc is the third resurrected fallen knight and has served the Council faithfully all his life. But he’s hungered for his mate, to know more about the differences which separate him from the other men and women tasked with keeping everyone safe. Lacking sexuality, he wonders if his other half even exists.

When the pair meet, questions and mysteries abound. Albrecht worries over the future, but Vann is confident that with perseverance, they can find friendship and more. Together they move forward, unaware of what lies ahead, of what happens when past and present collide. However, if they can trust in what they’ve built, the two may just be able to conquer anything and discover the truth: true, fated love will never be denied.
