Boy Scout has a problem and it's not just that he can't let anyone know his birth name. He's flooded with devastating memories from the Faerie War and he's doing everything he can to numb himself to them in a useless attempt to forget. Fate intervenes as it always does, and he finds himself on the run with Cendrine, a woman whose hair turns to flame when she gets her power on. Boy Scout is determined not to be a pawn to anyone, no matter how important his talents as a Bard may be, and he's going to have to fight for all he's worth to avoid it.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review and while I enjoyed it, I was at times confused and left wondering if I missed something. It is the start of a series, however, and as the copy I read was an advanced but not 100% completed copy, I'm guessing the published edition cleaned up some of these issues. As talented as this author is, I'm willing to forgive a few hiccups and look forward to further installments.
