28936857Skywaard is in crisis, a civilisation living in the sky, they rely on technology to survive, but with a growing population and a lack of food, they realise that they need to start negotiating with Ariviil. Ariviil is the complete opposite to Skywaard. Living off the land, with no technology insight. The residents of Ariviil have worked hard to survive.

Leading the negotiations for Skywaard is Sebastian, sent to Ariviil for his charm and good looks, Sebastian likes nothing more than a good time and excels in his life of booze and a different woman on his arm.

Landing on Ariviil, not knowing the customs, Sebastian comes across Loriella who is an outcast to her people due to her magical ability. She has a gift of willing people to see what they desire and it has a stronger effect through sex. When she meets Sebastian, there is an instant attraction and against her better judgement she helps him.

Sebastian is very sure of himself and is a man who likes his sex, but when things don’t go his way, he reminds me of a lost little boy. Loriella is a self-confident, no nonsense woman, happy to live her life, but when she meets Sebastian she starts having doubts and although she tries to hide it her magic gives her away.

A great mash-up of genres, steampunk, erotica, fantasy, this story is a good introduction to what is to come. Although this book is written by 2 different authors, you could not tell, as the story flows evenly. Written from the protagonists POV, it never once got confusing as straightaway you could tell who’s story it was. With the story ending with the threat of war, I am so looking forward to the next book.
