#BookReview: The Mark of Amulii by @AeronDusk

Synopsis: Alexander Hunt holds onto two secrets: both could ruin his life, but one could end it.

The sudden move from Calgary, Alberta to the outskirts of Jasper during his senior year leaves Alex isolated in a cabin with bickering parents. He copes by taking daily hikes along the shores of Maligne Lake until he meets a young man named Amulii. He’s huge, unkempt, and speaks broken English, but there’s something else uncanny about him Alex can’t quite place.

What starts as a frightening first encounter escalates the moment Amulii gives Alex a strange gift and reveals there’s something much wilder about him than meets the eye. Unbeknownst to Alex, this sets off a series of devastating events that sends both of them fleeing from an aggressive, well-armed militia in the forest.

As Amulii and Alex escape into the mountains, their bond strengthens as they learn from one another, and what was once distrust evolves into something much deeper. Despite that, there are only two questions burning Alex’s waking thoughts as they traverse the harsh wilds of western Alberta, waiting for salvation: will he be caught and killed, or will he lose the rest of his humanity to Amulii’s mistake?

Content Warning: 

This book is *NOT* erotica but is intended for those over the age of 17. It contains explicit sex and graphic violence. While those themes are not prominent in the story, they pop up from time to time. This is a gay-centric paranormal romance with real biped werewolves. This is *NOT* A/B/O


Rating: 4 Stars
My Review: This cover is just so gorgeous that I knew I needed to read it.  The author did a fabulous job brining this world and characters to life. I loved every page and couldn't put it down.  The mystery and creatures were perfect and it was always nice to get something new.  I can not wait for more by this author. 


"Dusk has a unique lyrical quality to their writing style that brings the setting of Jasper and the surrounding woodlands to life. The cultural aspect of the novel is highly intriguing and carefully implemented into the novel. The lore surrounding the ways of the maw'cha (a seemingly variation type of werewolf) is beautifully woven into the narrative without the overuse of exposition, and all the mystery that should drive a good supernatural novel." -- Reedsy Discovery
