"The mix of supernatural creatures makes for interesting world-building, politics, and relationships." (Publishers Weekly)
The characters were already well established in the first book and you kinda knew what you were in for even with their brief disagreement. Tiago seems to be the only who really has an understanding of their relationship while she is clueless 90% of the book.
I know that this book was mostly about her becoming the dark fae queen and going to the capitol, but the first book managed to do everything and encorporate a lot of romance. She was so closed off and trying to push him away while having her own melt downs that it tip toed on the line to annoying.
All the characters has polar opposite voices and it made it very easy to figure out who was saying what.
It made me want to read the next book in the series.
I liked this book ok. The first one was better but I will still listen to the next one in this series. Its worth the credit.
Thea Harrison is obviously of the conviction that one word won't do if six can be found.
The book should have been about a third shorter because of the excessive use of descriptive words. Not horrible. It passed the time.
The story concept is sort of cool, but the endless descriptors piled upon descriptors got tiring... 'He held his lean, muscled body in tightly clenched stillness as he watched her tiny, lithe body gyrate on the dance floor in that scrap of a dress.'
The writing style is for preteens, but the sex scenes make it "mature audiences only."
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
This is the story of T-bird and Trix....Trix is being asked to take on a new role of ruling her people as Queen, it is her right by her bloodline, the thought to be long lost Dark Fae Princess has come out of hiding to take her place on the throne. Not everyone is thrilled that the princess has returned....and so the assassination attempts commence!
T-bird, one of the 7 Sentinels of the Wehyre people (sorry for my spelling guys I listened to it, I didn’t actually see these names spelled out) volunteers to go looking for Trix after an iPhone video surfaces on CNN that shows her own people turning on Trix, in an attempt to kill her, and she flees. T-bird tracks her down…and they become close….very close.
One thing that bugged me about this book was that it just felt it was a go, then not a go, then it was back on, only to be put on hold…a lot of yanking my chain to get to the “good stuff”, we got there eventually, but it wasn’t as powerful as in the first book. It was well worth the price and I will continue with the series…actually I already have and book three is awesome again!
Continually asking myself "did I miss something?" backing it up and nope, hadnt missed anything. Her first book was fleshed out, had a great story, completed scenes, emotionally realistic yet set in fantasy. I expected this book to do that, but it didn't. It was as if she was totally dependent on graphic sexual exploits. A second draft. Characters had no real depth, I was left wondering "where is the rest of this conversation? How did they get to this particular place? What was the reason for that happening?" I am considering if I should give the author one more try but if I do and the third in the series is just a draft that went to print? I won't be reading anything else she writes.
She rushed the story, Barely introduced more than 2 characters. I still don't know much about the characters but I would have liked to. They sounded like they might be interesting but there was a name, what they did and a sort of "I might like them if I could be told LOTS more about them."
Sophie Eastlake was the best part of this book. The narrator was the only good thing and she kept me going. I will look for other works she has told in such a fine and dedicated manner.
Nurse working at being a nurse practitioner. The only way I have time to read for pleasure is audio books while I drive to work. I have always liked audio books.
I liked the descriptions of the lands and even the hotel. Very vivid I could see the places. The story was a good one with lots of twists and turns. It is just a little under the 1st in the series and the mating that keeps happening is kind of unbelievable in a group since it is supposedly so rare in the weir kind.
the characters were foolish and everything in between the sex was just filler
This one is just as good as the rest
I think Thea Harrison should just kill all the characters off then kill herself
Eastlake takes some liberites with intonation and God bless her for it. She saves the story. The only reason this gets a solid 3 stars from me is becuase of her.
I have to say I loved the hero, Tiago. But I didn't care much for the heroine. Actually, one of my least favorite kinds of females are the ones where the author keeps talking about how tiny they are, their tiny feet and hands, etc. (Shades of Feehan's Dark series) I also have little patience with so much emphasis on pink nail polish and 4-inch heels, etc. That's a lot of why I loved Pia in the first book. She was so real and no nonsense. Otherwise, the story itself was pretty good and had a goodly amount of action and steamy romance. The narrator again did a pretty good job.
