Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
Okay, the first book, Dragonbound was HOT, and so very cool to read. Book two had me scratching my head a bit and saying...well maybe number one was a fluke, but book three, is OMG SHE IS SO BACK!!!!
This is the story of Rune...Dragos's first in command, the strongest of the griffins and what the world sees as the hottest of the Griffins...he is walking talking breathing seduction...until he meets Carling in Book 2, and then his world stops....he can't think...he can't reason...he is flying off the handle and yet he doesn't know why, he just knows he is on edge and now he has to go to Carling, one of the oldest vampires on the planet because he swore he would...he is already in a cruddy mood, so this is just icing on the cake.
The chemistry between them is H-O-T, and this story is an intricately woven fairly tale to rival them all! I just really love this series, there is so much action, and so much loving and it all equals up to a great read!
First off, I really enjoy that Thea Harrison makes each of the books in the Elder Series interconnected with each other, they work well as stand alone books as well.
Sophie Eastlake does an amazing job narrating the books - I really look forward to more from this narrator.
The Story - I found the entire book enjoyable. The story's pace was a little slower in the first half then the second half. The ending was very well done in my opinion. If you enjoyed the other two books, then you will likely find this one just as interesting.
There are a couple of chars that I would really like to see more of, and I hope that Thea Harrison explores in future books - I suspect the plan is to go through sentinels, but it be wonderful to see some of the other interesting chars worked on as well.
I'm a relationship coach (QueenBeesCoaching), survived raising my children and have a loving relationship. Life is good!
What an imagination Thea Harrison has! And I do so enjoy Sophie Eastlake as the narrator. I find her very easy to listen to and understand.
This story was very enjoyable and surprised the heck out of me for where it went on why the vampire queen Carling is having problems with 'fading'. That was a story twist I would never have thought of! I do so love being pleasantly surprised by authors.
My pet peeve is simply too much sexual descriptions going on for ever and they're all so perfect and 'the one', etc., etc... I personally believe the media goes too far in perfection. NONE of us are perfect and we're never a perfect lover all the time, despite our best efforts. Reading stories that describe lovemaking perfection that I've rarely experienced, doesn't feel like it's helping anything, if that makes sense. It's like all the perfect bodies and teeth on TV, as it sets up the real folks for feeling dissatisfied about their real lives. I'd love to see less ultimate perfection and screaming orgasms, and more reality. Yeah, like that's going to happen. (But I think it should!) If you agree with any of this, write your own reviews and mention this too. If enough of us start saying something, maybe one author will change just a bit..
I also like how the stories in this series do intertwine. It would be nice to see more of the previous folks highlighted in each story, rather than just having a bit of a mention or showing up temporarily here and there.
This is a good series and I believe you'll enjoy it. Having the stories deal with the different races is pretty interesting, and you should read them in order.
Intelligent, romantic, twisting
I like the plot twists.
When they kept going back in time.
The end. :) So romantic.
Thea Harrison delivers again in book 3 of the Series! The story of Rune and Carling is interesting and engaging, and the author really develops the characters and the plot. Rune is totally hot, playful, and strong Griffin Wyr - he is one of the best male leads from Thea Harrison. Carling is a vampire queen who is complex and strong. The narrator, Sophie Eastlake, is awesome - she really brings the characters to life. I like the fact that all of Thea's books in this series are connected, so Rune and Carling's story will be continued in another book. I can't wait to read the next one!
I probably won't listen to this book again but I did enjoy this book...It is always nice to listen to the story of the characters in the series... if you have listened to the first 2 books this is a good follow up.
I liked the when they had their first kiss...it set the stage for this story
Yes I have listened to the first 2 books in this series and I found this story to be good.
No not really...it made me smile a few times but that was it...
Thea Harrison is a tee totally awesome talented author. I can really enjoy her writings to the point that I find myself hardly able to wait until her next book to come out in print!
I find that there are many things that I truly enjoy reading in her series that she has taken great care in making sure that each book flows exactly as though it simply flows from one to the other.
Sophie's performance is very and extremely and carefully awesome in her way of interpretations that come through very clearly in her work!
What would the human who is an Oracle that has been transferred from mother to daughter never to a son, have to say to you?
I tee totally love Thea Harrison
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
k book one is still my favorite moving on to four,did love Rude funny and deadly sexy...didn't like ending wanted him to stay in his old job trying not to give away def. worth a credit
having not been impressed with the first two in this series, my friends had to literally dare me to try one more time. I am so glad I did. the characters were fleshed out, far greater substance in the individuals who were part of but not the main characters. A story was told that was worth hearing, instead of the constant reference to sexual matters and same old patterns, a story was told of love, loss, growth, of characters. Physical references were minimal and when appropriate. this one I keep. well done. should I try the 4th? I will read the reviews and then decide but this one can stand alone and should be considered adult but not over done.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Another hit from Thea Harrison. Love the characters. This is defiantly a series to give a try, of course start with Dragon Bound. The beginning was a little slower but it picks up towards the end. I love how Rune took the time to play video games on his flight. Even big scary immortals can get addicted, that’s good to know. I'm looking forward to the next book, this book has set it up for a rollercoaster ride that should be fun. Other great paranormal romance series are Dark Hunter by Sherrilyn Kenyon and The Lord of the Underworld by Gena Showalter.
