Contains explicit M/M sex. Sometimes happily ever after just doesn't happen. Cody knows his lover, Li, is a demon. Yet he remains with him, waiting for Li to tell him the truth. The truth never comes, but Li's brother, Vaul, tries to destroy Cody in a vicious attack. Because the demon seems to know every one of Cody's magical secrets, Cody can't defend himself. What's left of Cody is sent to a suspension chamber and requires twenty-cycles to regenerate a body. As the time passes, Cody, trapped inside a medallion, learns and grows more powerful. Anger becomes twisted rage that only thirsts for revenge. Near insane when he steps out of the chamber, Cody sets out to destroy every demon present at the attack, make Li pay for his betrayal, and to destroy Vaul.
