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.

"The mix of supernatural creatures makes for interesting world-building, politics, and relationships." (Publishers Weekly)
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.
The opening chapters of this well written and well narrated book, has a very strong male picking up his love interest and hauling her out of a crowded room because he thinks her dress is to skimpy. Every reader knows that he would protect her with his life, because this is romantic fiction. The majority of women who enjoy reading about muscle bound men wouldn't put up with this behavior for an instant in real life. Yet with the recent headlines of very strong men treating weaker people badly, not just with the lack of respect we owe each other in a civilized society, but with a physical reaction, if someone, usually a woman, doesn't act the way they want them to. I just don't enjoy seeing it in a romantic novel. I apologize to any reader who sees beyond this. I just keep seeing unconscious women in elevators, stories about girls abducted and mutilated in other countries etc. The book is well written, the problem is mine. I know better grounded people can separate fiction from newspaper stories, than I can for the moment.
The second book in the series was as good as the first one, although this time there was more action than romance. Tiago had been sent to find and protect Tricks after an assassination attempt. The Wyr had been protecting her since her uncle had murdered the rest of her family so he could ascend the throne of the Dark Fae. Now that he's gone Tricks had left the Wyr to go back to her land as the rightful queen and evidently someone didn't want her to succeed.
Tiago has his work cut out for him trying to protect her, but luckily he's up to the task since Tricks doesn't make it easy. There's lots of action, a little romance and humor along the trail of discovering who doesn't want Tricks to be the next Queen of the Dark Fae..
The narrator did an excellent job and I loved the way she did Tricks. Even the male voices were pretty good.
I truly enjoyed this book! I love that each character seems to develop more with each book in the series. But I mainly wanted to praise the narrator. Sophie did an fantastic job of bringing this story and it's characters to life. She made an already great story outstanding!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
The lead up to the romance/mating was hot. I enjoyed this story it made my day at work fly by. I did think the bad guy was a little predictable, but I'm not listening to this for the mystery alone. Okay there is a lot of bash talking about Tricks in other reviews but I liked her. She was sweet, silly, and totally lovable character which is partly a façade to hide the scared woman inside. Just because someone loves shoes and clothes does not make them shallow. Tiago was the perfect opposite for her which gave their coupling a sweet factor when he would do nice things for her. I loved it when Tiago catches the guy with the baggy pants. I have always thought the baggy gangsta look was ridiculous. There is a good lead up for the next story and I will defiantly be getting it. Narrator was pretty good, although the some of the female voices were a little high pitched for my taste.
