Blurb: When winged paranormal Dante is injured in a demon attack, he faces certain death unless he can reach a healing spring just off the Pacific coast. With his strength waning and the demon poison infesting his system, the spring is his only hope. He never expects to find salvation in the arms of the property’s caretaker, a much younger man. Bren is fascinated by the beautiful winged man who arrives at his family’s sanctuary. He’s determined to save Dante’s life, but he’ll have to find a way to help Dante heal without infecting himself with the demonic poison, and time is running out.
When Dante’s injured, he heads to a healing spring to get rid of the poison infesting his system. Unfortunately, for it to work, he has to wait until sundown to enter the spring. While he’s waiting, the property’s caretaker, Bren, shows up to help but there’s not much he can do except keeping Dante company. The time spent together creates a spark between them that might just be worth something to explore later on but with the poison eating Dante’s body, will he even survive long enough for that time to come?
This story had a lot of potential but I found it to be a little too dense for me to really get into it. I enjoyed the characters and really liked what there was of the story. I found the connection between Dante and Bren a little hard to believe because there wasn’t much depth but I definitely loved the way the story ended, it was definitely cute. However, this would have been a great story if it were only longer with much more detail and depth to it. As it was, I felt like a majority of it was internal dialogue and a bit of world building but not as much dialogue as I would have preferred.
In the end, I liked the story but I couldn’t get into it because of how short it was. I felt like the story was much too complicated to be this short but I did enjoy the characters. I hope the author considers expanding the story and I really hope we get a sequel for Pix!
Overall Impression: It was good
