I love T-Bird and how Ninian handles him. She understands him completely and knows exactly how to respond. I think Storm's Heart was a little slower paced than the first book, Dragon Bound, but it was worth the wait and I understand how the story will lead to book 3. Good tragedy, mystery and revenge. Ninian and Tiago's banter had me laughing the whole time. And the feather?!?! Hilarious!! It was so easy to picture! Again, Sophie did an oustanding job on animating the characters. Thanks Thea!
Thea Harrison did it again. She pulled off another winner with this story. Unfortunately I did feel like it dragged on a bit towards the end. Don't get me wrong the ending was suspenseful but it was a bit long winded and I couldn't bring myself to race through it like with Dragon Bound.
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
Yes I have one more to go, but this was such a disappointing difference from Dragon Bound.
Not make a 217 year old fairy sound like a whiny immature Barbie Doll, ugh. The banter between a 217 fairy and...an older then time Thunder bird was just ridiculous, I felt like it was a scene out of "Mean Girls". Age is suppose to signify experience, knowledge, grace and wisdom, but instead you get annoying drunk sorority girl that gives it up in a night club....classy.
Disappointment, I really wanted the characters to be more mature for their substantial age.
so far this is my least favorite it the series, Dragon Bound is still the best.
I am a mother of two rowdy boys. I listen to audiobooks while house cleaning, on my commute and while working out.
I loved the first book in this series Dragon Bound but this one missed the mark for me. I had to force myself to finish it.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Audio is better!
Great job as usual!
Tricks has her moments, LOL
I love this series and it's worth the credit.
This was a good follow up to Dragos' and Pia's book, and can completely stand alone, however it didn't have as much spark to keep me riveted as the first book did. I think I expected more from 'Tricksy' since she seemed cute and interesting initially, but her character fell a little flat for me, and just seemed petty at times. Tiago, on the other hand, totally salvages the story; this sexy beast was hilarious, crass, sarcastic, but extremely adorable! Overall, I'm hooked on the series, and would recommend it to anyone that loves other worldly romance and fantasy.
Storm’s Heart was funny, heart wrenching and sexy with all the right ingredients: a tall, dark, and sexy alpha male who is brought to his knees by a tiny spitfire heroine who happens to be of another race and destined to be queen. The faery in this book is a bit over the top but she is likable. The alpha male sent to protect her is not what you would think a faery would like and he at first doesn't want to be her watch dog either.
They fight against old prejudices and assassination attempts while fighting with each other just so they can fulfill their duties. Sometimes I think they fight with each other just for the fun of making up.
In short it is a fun book and a quick read. Love the elder race books.
This was written like YA... come on, the main character is over 200...I expect these characters to be better developed,.. I was hoping for more story line... I don't need a description of every room or the long name of her guns...I feel like the while story could have been translated in about twenty sentence s.... the rest is just mindless fluff.... disappointed in this one...I will not listen to it twice.... there are some major plot lines that I could really get into with this series... I am afraid I will just be disappointed... but I will at least give the next a try....
Still married to the sweetest man alive. Have 3 beautiful grandchildren with one on the way!
So far I'm finding it pretty easy to get into these books quickly, and they hold my attention all the way to the end. The stories have been well written and full of action. I like that they are not making me wait too long for anything of significance to happen. The leading characters are well written and performed with substance. The story lines have all been intriguing and have kept me wanting to continue the series. Each book is so well written that I have read them out of order and still enjoyed them all. That only happens if you are able to pick up and understand just were you are in the complete story line, and so far Thea Harrison is batting 100%! I am truly loving the Elder Races Series!
Sophie Eastlake has a good grasp on each character, and I have not found myself being irritated with any of the voices. Good job!
