I have to be honest, historical romance is not a genre I typically follow. In this case, I was looking for something new, and was intrigued by the promise of berserker mythology. I was hooked from the very first word. Derek Perkins could probably read a chinese take-out menu and have it sound like a Shakespearian sonnet. So much the better when the material he's reading is Byrne's excellent dialog and poetic prose. This trilogy was so much more than I expected, from the skillful weaving of history and mythology to the make-you-squee-all-alone-in-your-room paranormal romance. This story has it all, and Miss Byrne has a new fan! I can't wait to see (and hear) what she does next!
I was eagerly awaiting the release of Reclaimed after having devoured Unleashed. Any expectations I had were completely blown out of the water. Kerrigan Byrne and Derek Perkins demonstrate why they make such a dynamic team. With Byrne's master storytelling and artful prose, and Perkins' exquisite performance, this series delights and surprises at every turn. The mix of romance, mythology, mystery, and humor in these novellas has set a high bar for other writers in this genre. I can't wait to hear what Byrne and Perkins do next! Here's to looking forward to the evening commute!
