During the rule of her murderous Dark Fae uncle, Thistle "Tricks" Periwinkle found sanctuary among the Wyr in New York. Her ethereal beauty and sparkling personality won the hearts of the public, but after her uncle's death, there are those who don't want to see her ascend to the throne.
Able to wield thunder and lightning, Wyr sentinel Tiago Black Eagle has ruled the skies for centuries. His massive build and thunderous power make him one of the Wyr's best weapons. And he's sent to protect Tricks when she's almost assassinated in Chicago. Soon, both Tiago and Tricks will fall prey to the stormy hunger that engulfs them - a passion that will shake the very foundation of all the worlds.

Loving my life and hanging out with my four grandchildren!
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!
I enjoyed the fantasy, felt the union and wanted the bonding. Narrated the story well.
Excellent read! The main character was and emotional mess almost the entire time which is very unlike the impression I formed of her from book 1, so it was a little disappointing but still very enjoyable.
I love books ... Romance are my favorites, with an occasional mystery
First the narrator is terrific. The characters are developed and funny. I must get the rest. I want to know Trix.
These books have a lot of good story line, and very little melo drama from the characters. (no reading 3 chapters before the main characters have the time or chance to share key information) good series so far, very little backtracking but enough so you would not be overwhelmed. this is my 7th book series , I like new and interesting characters and love to listen how their individual story will play out.
I am an avid fantasy and urban fantasy reader. I also read a lot of millitary romance.
Dragos and Pia are funnier, but these two have their moments. Trix had to get too serious to be Ninnian.
Mom of 3 wild and crazy boys, I've become obsessed with books again after being sucked into a little vampire/lovestory series you may have heard of, and now I listen to most books (but read at night) so that I can be somewhat productive during the day and not leave my family and home to collapse around me while my nose is stuck in a book ; )
Narrator speaks tooooo slow. Had to turn it to speed talking. Good story but the draggyness of her speaking made me feel impatient. Looking forward though to rest of series (just on a faster speed).
I wasn't expecting the character focus of this second installment. It was nice to listen to the story unfolding.
Tiago. What a great character. I was expecting the neanderthal thing, but he had some unexpected depths and some pretty hot dialogue.
Again, the ability to look forward to Miami traffic.
If you use audible for entertainment, this is just the ticket. Thea Harrison writes well and Ms. Eastlake is a great narrator.
