Review: Deathless by Belinda Burke

Sweeter than strawberry, darker than blackberry, better than please…

Son of the wood god, son of a mortal woman, Myrddin has lived a carefree life for sixty years. Now, with his mother dead, the wilderness that has sustained him is an overflowing well of powers he can no longer control. Sent by his father to seek someone who can help him, the one Myrddin finds is a nameless stranger, whom he calls Kas.

Kas, so named, is still what his nature demands he be. He is Death, its essence and its king…its master, and its open gate. Since the first death that came into this world, he has been alone, essential and solitary – until Myrddin. For his sake, Kas aids in building the Rite of Spring, and in the process learns love…and loneliness.

Between life and death, want and need, there is just enough space for a new beginning. The question is how it continues – and whether it ends.

Can the Life of Spring and the Death of Winter really create something as beautiful as love?  If the seasons were personified as people this book captures them perfectly. This is an intense yet simply sweet novella that can be read in one go.

When I first opened this Paranormal romance I was confused. It was not until later that I realized it is linked to another series by Miss Burke, Eight Kingdoms; although without reading the rest of the series I still enjoyed and understood as I continued to read Deathless. A son of the wood god and a mortal woman, Myrddin, has just lost his mother and he feels his father’s powers flowing into him. He does not know what to do with all this power and sensing his son’s frustrations, the wood god gives Myrddin directions to head west and he will find who he needs.

Death, or as Myrddin calls him Kas, has never known words, feelings, or actions until Myrddin sought him out. The time they spent together, Kas realizes that he does not want to lose what he has finally found but until he can express what he is feeling he lets Myrddin go find himself. They reunite a year later and they both understand that they both need and want each other. Their pull together is undeniable.

This M/M romance was just the thing I needed to get me addicted to Miss Burke. This gives you just enough to want to read where the premise of Deathless come from. Eight Kingdoms will be added to my TBR list.

I was gifted a copy from the JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review. The opinions and ratings are my own and I was in no way compensated.
