Stan Kendal thought becoming an Ophidian would be the first step towards redeeming himself. He'd failed Tristan, sensing it was too late to be his future king's strong arm. He'd failed Gregori, his out of control actions drivng a wedge between him and his childhood friend. Now his new friend, Randy Aikman, extracts a promise that Stan's ill equipped to handle. But he's det ...more

Originally read October 2017

Okay, so F'N Stan may be getting a little better and found his purpose....I say that grudgingly. I still don't like him lol.

This was just a quick freebie in the series of a few side characters.

I always love returning to Lexi Ander’s world of the ‘Sumeria’s Sons’ series, and this short story offered me exactly such an opportunity. Since the next full novel (‘Dragon’s Eye’) will release in a few days, this felt like a nice way to “warm up” for the main event. Like all the shorts in this series, it focuses on some of the magi who are secondary characters throughout. I do have to warn you: as the blurb states, this cannot be read as a stand-alone; it won’t make any sense without you havin ...more

Good addition that lets us know what is going on with Tristan gone. It was good to see Stan finally find a purpose. I feel for Justus and his also his sisters. At least I got one of the answers to my questions

Where the other half books in the series have been following and showing us more of Gregori and his backstory, this one is about Stan. We learned what happened between him and Gregori in Starting Fires before he left to get control of himself and become an Ophidian.

Now, Randy has made him promise to watch over Justus, adoptive son of Tristan and Ushna, as well as Twin Flame to Randy because Randy is going into The Land of the Dead in hopes of getting an agreement to help Tristan during the upcom

Interesting but I don't think it added much to the series. I may like Stan more than I did though.
Rating: 2.5 stars.

Mithra and the 'boar' went to see Ushna and Randy went somewhere. . .

A precursor to what's to come in Book 5, I think.

Though it's free and short, a bit of editing could be done in this one.

This short in the series did nothing for me. It was disappointing in comparison to the others I've read. Not her best short.

Lexi has always been an avid reader and at a young age started reading (secretly) her mother’s romances (the ones she was told not to touch). She was the only teenager she knew of who would be grounded from reading. Later, with a pencil and a note book, she wrote her own stories and shared them with friends because she loved to see their reactions. A Texas transplant, Lexi now kicks her boots up i ...more
