Alexander Hunt holds onto two secrets: both could ruin his life, but one could end it.
The sudden move from Calgary, Alberta to the outskirts of Jasper during his senior year leaves Alex isolated in a cabin with bickering parents. He copes by taking daily hikes along the shores of Maligne Lake until he meets a young man named Amulii. He's huge, unkempt, and speaks broken English, but there's something else uncanny about him Alex can't quite place.
What starts as a frightening first encounter escalates the moment Amulii gives Alex a strange gift and reveals there's something much wilder about him than meets the eye. Unbeknownst to Alex, this sets off a series of devastating events that sends both of them fleeing from an aggressive, well-armed militia in the forest.
As Amulii and Alex escape into the mountains, their bond strengthens as they learn from one another, and what was once distrust evolves into something much deeper. Despite that, there are only two questions burning Alex's waking thoughts as they traverse the harsh wilds of western Alberta, waiting for salvation: will he be caught and killed, or will he lose the rest of his humanity to Amulii's mistake?
This book is *NOT* erotica but is intended for those over the age of 17. It contains explicit sex and graphic violence. While those themes are not prominent in the story, they pop up from time to time. This is a gay-centric paranormal romance with real biped werewolves. This is *NOT* A/B/O
This is a first for me as I never really enjoyed reading all that much. However after finishing this in about a week I must say I am absolutely stunned by this work. I was captivated, stressed, and excited after every page and just had to keep reading. If this work got a part two I would read it in a heartbeat.
A good read
I haven’t found a story that has kept me interested enough to finish it in a single day. This story is captivating and I can’t wait to see what the author does next.
Gay Werewolves and a well written story… what more could you ask for?
From the very first page, I was hooked by the captivating world-building and fully realized characters.
The plot is fast-paced and action-packed, with plenty of twists and turns to keep me guessing. At the same time, the author has a way of infusing the story with emotional depth and meaning that really resonated with me.
One of the things I loved most about this book was the way it tackled complex themes like identity, loyalty, and the true cost of power. The characters are all struggling with their own moral dilemmas, and it was so rewarding to see how they grew and changed over the course of the story.
I would highly recommend The Mark of Amulii to anyone who enjoys epic fantasy with a dash of romance. It's a must-read for fans of the genre, and I can't wait to see what Aeron Dusk has in store for us next. Five stars without a doubt!
