more terrifying than any weapon.
Valis’ father wants to sacrifice him to the evil God, Qos. His uncle wants to use him as a magical battery and sex slave. All Valis wants is to live in peace, without fear of constant abuse. When he escapes his father’s sacrificial knife and runs away, he lands in the camp of his two saviors, Kerac and Darolen, holy Aesriphos warriors powerful enough to put his family in their place.
But trusting anyone could be fatal, and the warriors ask the impossible: to sell his father’s farmstead and abandon his old life to join their monastery.
They’re his only hope and when he learns to trust them, they’re the father figures he always wanted, but Valis isn’t sure he’s strong enough to put aside his fear and start over.
The God Jars Saga is a nine book slow burn medieval M/M fantasy romance.
Saviors, Duty and Sacrific, 1 and the first The God Jar series by author Devon Vesper, it is a great fantasy novel. If you are looking for a romance, it is therewith Kerac and Darolen but Valis does not get a love interest yet. To me, he was just not ready emotionally for one yet anyways.
This is Valis’ story. We met him in the prequel. He is the boy Darolen and Kerac save. The boy Kerac had been dreaming about calling him dad. Both of these men help Valis.
Valis if you ask me has PTSD. He has been through hell and survived. He is growing in strength of spirit and body. He is learning trust comes hard. But he is a good soul who deserves happiness and love.
As I mentioned the love interests in this story are already established in the prequel. I liked going deeper into that relationship. I also loved the world-building in this book. I feel it is a great start to what is looking like a wonderful new series to sink into.
