Title: Soulshares, Book 2: Gale Force
Author: Rory Ni Coileain
Characters: Conall Dary, Josh LaFontaine
Sub-Genre: M/M, Magick, Fae, Mage
Conall Dary is the most powerful mage born to the Fae race since the Realm was parted from the human world, over two thousand years ago. But that very power condemns him to a lifetime of celibacy, because sex calls to power, and he has power enough to drain a world. And when he refuses to use his talents for a Noble lady’s petty revenge, he finds himself shanghaied to the human world, his soul torn in half and his magick blocked.
Josh LaFontaine is the beautifully inked owner of Raging Art-On, a Washington, D.C. tattoo and piercing parlor. While taking part in New York City’s Pride march with a former lover’s dance company, his world changes forever when the man of his dreams materializes out of nowhere at his feet .
Josh’s sensual and loving touch, the first Conall has ever known, may be enough to give him back the magick he’s lost. But before they can complete their Soulshare, a terrible accident leaves Conall bodiless, lost, and invisible, to everyone except – maybe – the human with whom he shares a soul. But Josh will need to find him before the ancient evil of the Marfach does or everything they have – and more – will be lost.
This is the second book in the SoulShare series.
As with ‘Hard as Stone’ this book completely took me over and wouldn’t release me until the final page.
Josh is a tattoo artist who has been channeling Magick through his tattooing unbeknownst to him.
He is helping a former lover out at a gay pride parade when a chained man literally fell at his feet.
Conall is a Fae Mage who was banished from the Fae Realm for not using his Magick to exact revenge for another Fae. His Magick is damaged when he is banished.
Josh and Conall are Soul Shared and unable to complete their bonding due to Conalls damaged Magick.
This story pulled me in so fast I would find myself so tense I would have to lay the book down and shake off the tension, and have to pick it up again and immediately be caught up and tense up all over again.
Rory NI Coileain knows how to weave a story so brilliantly, you become a part of the story.
The evil Magick previously thought banished comes back in the most grotesque human host you can imagine, determined to exact revenge.
While Conall and Josh are fighting a way to come together, hard to do with Conall not having a body, due to touching a Magick ley line he should never have been messing with.
These two lovers need intense orgasms to properly channel the Magick and fight the evil that would destroy them.
I love the twists and turns in this book and to get the story from several Pov’s gives a complete view of this complicated plot.
I recommend this book and be prepared to be so caught up you will lose your own reality.
