Major Jamil Jarka comes to the temple with one intention—heal his wounds so he can return to the fight against the rebellion. When the monk assigned to him turns out to be stunningly attractive, he sees this as a pleasant distraction, no more. But soon he finds himself becoming obsessed withM'lan and is torn between the fear of betrayal and the lure of love.
Sinister forces strive to turn the monk and the warrior against each other—a conflict neither will survive if they cannot trust their lives to love and the healing power of Salar.
Monks and assassins-sorcery and treachery-just a small snippet of what’s to be found in Touch of Salar by Alexis Duran. This medieval meets other-worldly adventure was gripping and emotional.
M’lan, a monk with great medicinal powers, found himself healing a soldier (Jamil) who fought against the rebellion. Unbeknownst to M’lan, his healing abilities thrust him into the forefront of a dangerous game where not only his life could be crushed, but his heart as well.
Jamil was a slightly crass and overbearing man. But, in his defense, the life he’d lived left him no other recourse. Written as a character with little regard for others, I believe Ms. Duran wanted the readers to like him. His redeeming quality~ somewhere in the recess of his being, I believe he truly had feelings for M’lan.
The first book in the new Masters and Mages series, Touch of Salar delivered an HFN as opposed to an HEA, so a book two is a must.
