This is the third of David Metheny’s group. It is the prequel to the first two, revealing how Kayden came to fall into the hole and end up in Wonderland.
Kayden is a self-made millionaire, having revolutionized the fitness world, as the book says. He is one of those men who prowls the gay bars, picks up the best finds, has sex, and sends them home without breakfast. He is arrogant, conceited, and proud. He has no morals, which we find out right at the beginning when we find out the kid he spent the night before with is the son of his best friend.
Kayden meets Marcus at one of his favorite prowling places after interjecting himself between Marcus and the man Marcus was having a conversation with and charming Marcus into going to his apartment. And this is where the fun begins.
First of all, Marcus isn’t sent home right away in the morning. Second, we meet a Siamese cat with the most amazing eyes. Kayden is going to drop Marcus off, the cat, which they had taken with them, escaped, and all of a sudden, all three have disappeared from the world as we know it.
This is where the imagination and genius of David Metheny’s story telling really begins. His imagination and creativity takes over and we are transported to a totally new realm, and dropped there just as Kayden was. How do Marcus and the cat figure into this? What kind of a world is this? These questions we already know, because we have already read the first two books. This book takes us on a path back, to learn about the very first of Kayden’s adventures. It fit superbly with the other two, and is an excellent prequel. I loved this as much as the rest of the series, making all three of the books a wonderful read!!!
