Synopsis

Finally, the part of Elakdon’s Kingdom that his sister, Dahlidin, set up, has seen the rise of their next King–a very beautiful King, and a very young King. Full of hope, Elakdon tries to aid his young ally by sharing a story about how his own Kingdom evolved under a clash with the humans—a clash that changed the Cubi’s place in the world in its entirety. Change is upon the Cubi race again, and Elakdon needs the young King to see not only that it had happened before but that the Cubi people and the Royals can withstand great adversity because of their unity.

So, when the first chance presents itself, Elakdon brings the young Nol-Beaudon to sit around a fire to be told the story of how Nol-Elakdon, the millennia old King of the North, came to be the Incubus he is today.

5/5

Now I love The Cubi series and that’s no secret, but when the author said he was taking us back to Viking times for book six, I wondered if the book would live up to the high expectations.  Well the answer is an epic yes.

If you have followed the series and Danial’s journey to become King of the Cubi of his regional kingdom.  You will have heard of Nol-Elakdon.  This is his story and how he became the wise king that mentors the young Nol-Beaudon.

 

We start with Nol-Beaudon and his people around a campfire, as Nol-Elakdon starts to tell his story.

We find out how the cubi race was forced in to hiding by the kings of the world as Christianity took hold as a new religion.   Why was Christianity a issue I hear you ask?

Its quite simple really, sex out of marriage and sex between two men or two women, not to mention multiple partners were forbidden.  The knock-on effect is that this would prevent Cubi’s feeding on humans.  Not only because of the rules of sex, but also because if Cubi’s could find willing human partners they would most likely have guilt and shame, which would cause negativity in their feeding the cubi’s.

They had to agree to hiding with the promise of having access to select humans to help them feed, and if any were found to be changelings, they would become Cubi.

All of this happens within a few months. Elakdon has to learn fast, often by mistakes, which he was man enough to admit to his people.  Like Elakdon is Nol-Beaudon’s mentor and alley.  Nol Elakdon had an Old King and Queen and his cubi father, with their wisdom to guide him through the early years.

The times were very different back then, and yet in many ways both Nol-Beaudon and Nol Elakdon are on the same journey to freedom for the Cubi people.   Which Nol-Beaudon has been setting the ground for.

I enjoyed this book immensely, it answered a few questions that came from the previous books in the series. It added even more colour and detail to the Cubi Race and it hierarchy and laws.

I would love for the author to write bothe Nol Beaudons story and continue Nol Elakdons as a spin off.  Though I think This would be asking too much of the Author, and I am just being greedy wanting more and more of my Cubi fixes.
