This book started out with the idea of a trilogy but it is becoming more apparent to me every day that three books just won't do. There will more than likely be 4-5 main books in the series but I'm also kicking around the idea of at least three novellas and a full novel based on Mace's former life. Oh, and a possible spin-off series revolving around characters you'll meet in book 2. (less)

This is one of my favorite books ever. Even though the book was about a boy coming to terms with his sexuality and faith it was actually so weirdly relat
able. I laughed out loud and sobbed during some points. Such a great book!

“In Kai’s defense, it was hard to forget a six-foot-six slab of muscle that shadowed your every move. It was especially hard when they wore their shirts tight enough to count their abs and smelled like rain and sex and poor life choices.

“At first glance, she thought him a statue; an apparition in the deluge of rain. He sat perched on top of a mausoleum, crouched like a gargoyle with his elbows on his knees, hood shrouding his face. Three stone crosses rose behind him giving him the appearance a post-apocalyptic monk guarding a sacred shrine. That”
