Only known male snake shapeshifter in the world, Robbie has grown up with his severe mother and aunt. While his mother was strict, his aunt was sadistic and used Commands (mental magic) to torture him. This is predominantly a series about Robbie’s personal growth from a scared and abused young man to a strong man who by book four has come into his own with regard to his abilities, his wants, and his ability to stand up for what he believes is right. Robbie struggles with feelings of worthlessness and internal core beliefs of being a “freak,” but is motivated by knowledge and embracing new experiences despite how fearful they might be for him. His savior is Theo, who sees in him someone who is as stunning internally as he is gorgeous externally.
