After years of watching and never touching, Darwin Degroi finally has the love of his life. And Darwin would do anything for Peter Forbes, including sitting by while Georgia Tech’s metaphysical review board strips him of his scholarship. But it doesn’t take the genius of a metaphysical scientist to figure out that something else is going on when Peter is handed his pink-slip and kicked out of the program.
What Darwin discovers is that Peter has a secret. Sweet Peter, gentle Peter, the love of his life Peter isn’t going to be Human anymore.
And if that doesn’t take the cake, the Lesser-Bred who knows Peter’s secret and put himself in charge of helping him Become has decided that in order to keep people safe, to keep Darwin safe, he needs to lock Peter away.
In the words of Darwin, “Over my mutilated, maggot-ridden body.”
I like so much were this is going. It was a very short story. It’s the second part of the series and I recommend to read it in the correct order to understand it better.
I didn’t liked Darwin in the first part, and the feeling is the same here. He seemed to me like he is way too immature. I could understand his attitude on a teenager, but he isn’t, so he has no redeeming elements. What I did liked about him was how truly he love Peter and how much he is willing to sacrifice for him. They were great together.
The first part of the story was what I liked the most about it. The plot was much better than the first part, and even though I’m not really into paranormal stories, It was very easy to care for the paranormal part of it. I really liked where the story is going. I already have the next instalment and will be reading as soon as possible.
