Many years ago Dao Kan Shu lost his
lover Toshiro in the San Francisco earthquake. On his last
breath, Toshiro says ďI will find you.Ē Now, the vampire is
sure he has found his beloved Toshiro once again. Kenichi
Ohara is waiting for his date to show up when Shu spots him.
All falls into place for Shu. It is his Toshiro in the
Kenís whole world is art. His parents
think itís a waste of time. His sketch book is filled with
passion he feels for his art. Shu is convinced even more
that Ken is Toshiro when he sees a sketch of the knife that
killed him. How does Ken know what it looks like? It was
lost long ago.
Shu convinces Ken to stay with him. Ken
feels more at home than he ever has.
Now memories are surfacing that arenít
Kenís. Ken and Toshiro share the same face and the same soul
but he is not entirely Toshiro. Even though it would please
Shu, Ken doesnít want to be the reincarnated Toshiro. He
wants Shu to want him for himself, not because heís someone
Shu claims Toshiro by carving ĎI Love
You Foreverí into Kenís skin. Ken wants to be with Shu but
Shuís jealousy and violent reactions push him away. So why
doesnít Ken hate him? When Ken finally ďremembersĒ
everything, he is willing to make Forever a reality.
I liked The Dragonís Disciple
and I didnít but I think that was the point. Itís a dark
romance with a dangerous aura. I was pulled in even when I
didnít want to be. Shuís obsession with finding Toshiro
isnít altogether healthy for anyone but there is no denying
that Shu did love him. Which brings us to Ken. Kenís feeling
for Shu revisit Toshiroís feelings but there is always the
question-are the feelings really Kenís or do they belong to
Toshiro? Even when Ken ďrememberedĒ the question was still
there. And the doubt is what made me keep reading.
There are two romances in The
Dragonís Disciple. Shu and Ken are the primary
relationship with Meg and Leigh bringing the storyline in to
focus. The characters are all very strong which made the
events so provocative. I think that anyone who takes a
chance will love to hate Shu.
