Glad to see Tohrment happy again
There was a lot of angst in this on the way to getting Tohrment to let go of Wellsie. Apparently she and their baby were stuck in the “in between” and slowly moving further away until they disappeared forever. They would never make it to the Fade unless Tohrment lets them go, and gets over his grief.
He begins to feel attracted to No’One who is the mother of Xhex and was the young girl that he and Darius rescued when he was young. She had been taken hostage by a Sympath and raped and when they rescued her, she wouldn’t allow them to return her to her family with the glymera to be shunned. She knew she was pregnant, so Darius and Tohrment took care of her until she gave birth and right afterward she stole Tohr’s knife and killed herself.
She was brought back as a Chosen, but has always seen herself as a servant, so she called herself No’One and served the Chosen. Recently she has been living in the mansion to get to know Xhex, but since Xhex has been busy, she has been doing laundry in the mansion and has been seeing Tohrment more and more.
Talk about angst, there couldn’t be more between Qhuinn and Blaylock. They are continuing to pine after each other. Blay still is with Qhuinn‘s cousin and Qhuinn does his best not to picture the two males together. Qhuinn serviced his good friend Layla the Chosen when she went into her needing, so she just might be preggers with his baby. Layla is now staying with Qhuinn but she fed Xcor and she has a crush on him. He can’t stop thinking about her either. Sounds like a recipe for disaster or a crazy mixed family.
One thing I can say about these books is they are never ever boring. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
