Rian Blackthorn's Gypsy and Elven heritage have earned him the title Master of the Hall of Swords in the realm of Brystyn. There, eighteen-year-old Rian has been training boys in the Ways of the Blade. However, his most promising student, Prince Corin, has fallen deeply in love with him. Already pledged to an Elven Prince of the Vale of Seven Rivers, Rian has managed to keep Corey at bay for the past two years. But when the prince's journal of erotic writings is delivered to Rian, he discovers a conspiracy that may result in Corey's death. And when Corey is abducted by Will the Wizard of Winterwood, a sexual deviant, Rian's love for Corey is slowly awakened. And if by life or death, he can save him, he most certainly will.
