Touched by the Morningstar: The Master and His Moving Castle (Rise of the Fallen Book 2) by Kaeya Lee

The Master and His Moving Castle is a good continuation to the second part in this serial series!

From the blurb:

Yuri finds himself on his knees before a prince of legends.

Captured and delivered by a magical carriage drawn by demons horses to the steps of a floating castle, surrounded by vampires and seraphim, Yuri wonders if he’s stepped into a dream or a nightmare.

The Master offers Yuri the chance to bask in the depths of a hidden library, seeking out answers to the world’s end, avoiding the shadows stalking the halls and twisting the worlds, at only the cost of a blood bond.

Will the bond keep Yuri from finding Star, or awaken a deeper need inside?

Angels, demons, Lucifer, vampires, Dracula, and one unusual human chef! This is a why choose serial with mild enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, with angst and Yuri is a cinnamon roll character with need for affection surrounded by a bunch of warriors, princes, kings, and monsters drawn to seek out his gooey center.

Angel's Review:

The second part in this new serial series by Kaeya Lee. The Master and His Moving Castle continued where the last 'episode' left off. The world building in these short stories is really excellent! I'm really enjoying the works in which these stories are placed in, the characters are great as well. I'm so curious to learn what Yuri actually is, since he's not completely mortal... I'm looking forward to the next part in this series!

Can somebody please remind me why I started this serial?! I need more, luckily I don’t have to wait long because I am so torn on how to feel about Yuri. The events that transpired in this second installment were questionable to say the least, and Lucian already has a bad taste in my mouth. But, Theo was the absolute sweetest!! 

“π•Έπ–Žπ–“π–Š, 𝖙𝖍𝖆𝖙 π–Žπ–˜ π–œπ–π–†π–™ π–žπ–”π–š π–†π–—π–Š, π–„π–šπ–—π–Ž π–‚π–Šπ–“. π–„π–”π–š π–π–†π–›π–Š π–Œπ–Žπ–›π–Šπ–“ π–žπ–”π–šπ–—π–˜π–Šπ–‘π–‹ 𝖙𝖔 π–’π–Š π–Žπ–“ 𝖇𝖑𝖔𝖔𝖉.”

In my opinion, Yuri was tricked into the bond. Master knew he wouldn’t cooperate otherwise, and I have fingers, toes, elbows and legs crossed that Star is able to save him. Either way, we did have some aggressive and dangerous events unfold, and we find out Yuri has something rather intriguing going on. Cannot wait for the next one!!

Jacquie's Review:

Not going to lie, I'm rapidly becoming obsessed with this serial and Star in particular (I have theories about him).

Yuri is in the castle and bound to his master. He's visited in a dream by Star and then is highly affected by the move the castle makes. It gets a bit wild from there. Having seen a teeny spoiler, I knew something was happening, but omg, that direction was wild.

There's some steam in this one, and it ends in a pretty big cliffy. Thank goodness the rest aren't far off. Part 3 please

Holly's Review:

I’m still amazed at how much the author can pack into such a small word count. In this edition, Yuri awakens, having been bonded to the Master, and his adventure in the moving castle begins. Theo is such a sweet character, and he tried to help Yuri understand what’s happening in the outside world. Lucien takes Yuri for a meal, where he learns he’s not able to stomach human food, and we get a delightful taste of the various ways in which a man’s hunger can be sated. No one seems to know what Yuri is or what he needs… The plot thickens, and I’m definitely looking forward to the next installment.
