The Sleeping God by Violette Malan

I found this book in a used bookstore when I was craving fantasy and decided to give it a try.

Dhulyn and Parno are Mercenary Partners. The bond between them can never be broken. But when a routine guard assignment leads to treachery, betrayal, and the unveiling of secrets that have been hidden for years, that bond will be strained to its limit. Can the magically gifted forme slave and the former nobleman hold together against all comers?

This book is so good, and so unique. It made the mercs-for-hire plotline seem new and fresh again. Questions of loyalty, of belonging, and the power of the past are central. Four and a half stars.
