Hundreds of years ago Pax was summoned, and then enslaved, into the Beyslar line. Masters have used him as a reaper to kill their enemies for years. Much of the Beyslar fortune is his responsibility. And he’ll keep being a slave to them until one of them can’t guess his name on the night that his service moves to the next Beyslar in line. He knows that Noah, the last of the Beyslars, won’t be able to guess his name, and Pax is looking forward to finally being free again. In order to be free, Pax has to kill his current master and that isn’t a task he’s ever wanted. For over sixty years he’s belonged to Anton, and he’s loved him as much as any reaper could ever love a human. But the man he fell in love with is now old and sick. Forcing him to stay alive is only hurting them both and soon Pax knows he’ll have to reap his lover and best friend. It’s the only way to free him, but Pax isn’t sure if he’ll ever be strong enough to go through with the one thing Anton needs him to do most.
