Teaser Tuesday ~ 3/16/21

This is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

To participate you:
* Grab your current read
(Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Now released for the first time as a standalone e-story, House of the Rising Son, previously published in the Dark Bites story collection from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Sherrilyn Kenyon.

The eldest son in a family of three boys, Aricles had no desire to be a soldier, even though his fighting skills were among the best in the world. He was more than content on his small Atlantean farm, living a quiet, uneventful life. But when his brother is determined to don a soldier’s uniform, Aricles joins him with a promise to their father to bring his brother home in one piece. What he never counts on is how much their new lives will forever change them, or what the risk of a forbidden love will ultimately cost him.


"...If something were to happen to you..." Tears welled in his eyes before he quickly blinked them away.  "I'd have to grow up and that's the last thing I want to do." 
Smiling, Aricles hugged him close then kissed his head.  "Fear not, little brother.  I shall be here for quite some time to annoy you." 
"You better be.  Otherwise, I'll have to follow you to Kalosis and beat the shit out of you." (Kindle location 628)

Yeah, I enjoyed this banter between bothers.  This story is a novella in a great series.  By itself, it was such a sad story.  I'm hoping the next book for these two will be kinder to them.  I am enjoying all the books in this series though.
