Raine O'Kelly has a gift. The very power of nature is his to command. When his gift lands him in trouble with the government, Raine find himself thrown into The Prison; one of the most feared punishments for those citizens who won't conform to The City's ideals.

Abused, scared, and slowly dying of deprivation from the one thing his body truly needs, an accident lands him in the infirmary, which leads him to be given to The Prison’s most feared inmate… The Beast.

When The Beast defends him from the guards, Raine finds himself inexplicably drawn to the misunderstood man. A man with unique abilities of his own, the Beast’s animalistic desires form a connection between them that cannot be denied. When he learns The Beast comes from Outside the City, is Raine willing to take the chance on escape with the mysterious man?

Escape won't be easy, and there are dangers waiting for them on The Outside, ready to strike at the fragile relationship between the two men. When The Beast’s past comes to light, will Raine be able to put aside his own fears in order to fight for the life the two of them could have together? Or will he fold under the pressure?

Will he get his happily ever after?

Or will he become just another victim of the Nature of the Beast?

My review

I read the blurb for this book and I thought wow this author is either really brave or nuts.
Brave won out because it was a story about seeing beyond the surface and being who you were born to be. I loved that Raine was trying to buck a system that prized conformity and he was bucking that system and doing silently by living and being who he needed to be. Ash, or the beast, is scared inside and out and the story of the two of them is not only beautiful but one that will stay with me. This is the first book in a series and it is a series I am itching to read more of as I really want to know what happens to Ash's brother and the rest of the gang, so book 2 here I came....
