The small Kingdom of Lantea is the only territory not controlled by the surrounding might of the Kingdom of Allin. With a truce in place young Prince Alric or Rick of Lantea went to school in Allin’s capitol city of Nirs Taris. His chief complaint was that young King Tomas ‘Tom’ Allington of Allin consistently stalked him the entire time he was there.
A request made by the warlock Aidan to uncover information on a magically powerful Watch Tower sends the now adult Rick on a secretive mission into Nirs Taris. He thought he was being sneaky but apparently not as Rick discovers when he wakes up in Tom’s royal bed. Being told that they are mates doesn’t improve his attitude, especially since Tom has locked a collar around Rick’s neck and it’s slowly killing him.
It most definitely is not Rick’s best moment. He’s being married to King Tom whether he wishes it or not. He’s dying and the King may or may not have knowingly caused it. And, he’s no closer to finding the third Watch Tower. Talk about rough nuptials.
Out of the (Werewolf) Closet opens with the main character’s impending death and continues on a breakneck speed from there. Twists and turns will captivate though the story would feel even richer if read in order. Miscommunication confounds Rick and Tom at the worst of times. Both intelligent yet it takes them a while to wise up and warm up to love. A rousing adventure, Out of the (Werewolf) Closet adds another layer to a fine series.
