Kalen Ysindroc, the king’s general, is summoned; rumors of half-human, half-elven lithings have been sighted along the kingdom’s borders. Micheil Theirauf, the king’s sorcerer and Kalen’s best friend in addition to long-time elven lover, has a fearful suspicion regarding Kalen’s trip, a suspicion that slowly reveals itself through Kalen’s dreams after an attempt was made on his life. Kalen, who never knew his origins, discovers his father possessed horrifying magical powers. Kalen’s discovery also reveals an unfamiliar half-brother that could alter his life with Micheil, forever.

The Lost Son is the first book in the Secrets of Socendor series. This is a well written storyline with detailed action in an incredible fantasy, shrouded in a captivating mystery. Kalen and Micheil are the main characters; however, the secondary characters each play a key role in the unfolding revelations of revenge, jealousy, betrayal and the hunger for power, as the motive for the attempts to destroy Kalen before he is aware of his supremacy. Kalen always considered himself to be an ordinary human from humble beginnings, this journey proves otherwise. Because of the laws, Micheil must hide the fact that he is an elf or give up his love for Kalen, which he will not do. The love scenes are seductive and grant a breathtaking image. The amazing Mychael Black transports you to another world filled with ingenious as well as mystical creatures that enchant fans of fantasy. I thoroughly enjoyed The Lost Son and look forward to the next installment.
