ARC: Dark Secrets by Shona Husk

Jan 28, 2013

Book 1.5
Arcane Series

Six years ago, Haidyn Mast left his home and his betrothed Anisa to follow his magical calling. Too weak to join the Arcane Guild and too ashamed to return home, he has made a life as a prostitute—to all outward appearances. In truth, he sells his mind but not his body, using magic to let his clients experience their most secret fantasies while his hands stay clean. Even the Lawman, the arbiter of justice in Reseda, is one of his clients, but Haidyn would rather not know the extent of that man's depravity.

Though successful, Haidyn is shunned as a whore and his lack of formal training is causing his power to grow out of control. He's ready to retire and leave the city, but when he sees his Anisa standing at Lawman's side, he knows he must rescue her from the abusive enforcer. Risking his life and his sanity, he devises a plan, knowing that failure will mean death for him, and a lifetime of torment for her…

I gave this book a 
Dark Secrets by Shona Husk is the next installment into the Arcane world we first read about in Dark Vow. This novella was aptly titled with whispers of  secrets told and yet to be unearthed. Husk invites readers into a strange land with odd powers and laws.  Our hero, Haidyn, will sacrifice everything for Anisa, even if it means destroying all that he has worked for. Dark Secrets is much darker than it's predecessor with under currents of what is more than likely to come in future books set in the Arcane world. I look forward to reading about the war on the horizon.
