Publisher's Summary

In Devil's Gate

As a coroner, medusa Seremela Telemar has always felt more comfortable chatting over a dead body than over drinks. But when her wild niece, Vetta, runs off to Devil's Gate, a lawless town that has sprung up overnight in a modern-day gold rush, she knows she has to extricate her before the rebellious girl gets into real trouble. Though she's confident in her head snakes' ability to defend her against attackers, Seremela is still a bit nervous about braving this modern-day Wild West by herself.

Vampyre Duncan Turner is not about to let his new co-worker go into that chaos alone. His Vampyric power and lawyer smarts make him the perfect ally, and the fact that he already had his eye on Seremela for more personal reasons, doesn't hurt matters. Any romantic thoughts pull up short, however, when they arrive at Devil's Gate and learn Vetta is set to hang by morning.

In order to save Vetta and themselves, Seremela and Duncan are going to have to fight fire with force and magic with fangs. And pray they make it out of Devil's Gate alive.

In Hunter's Season:

As a palace guard and assassin for the Dark Fae, Xanthe always wore a mask, hiding her emotions to do her duty. But when her identity is compromised, she trades undercover work for guarding Queen Niniane - a position that often brings her in contact with Chancellor Aubrey Riordan. Aubrey's trust is shattered. A year ago his wife tried to assassinate their new queen in his name, a betrayal of everything he believes in. And now an attack on his life is proof the dark conspiracy is not yet over. Although injured and weak, Aubrey can't help but be drawn to this shy assassin and loyal protector. Xanthe is everything Naida wasn't, and the passion she stirs in him is something he thought had long passed him by.

Loved it

This world is so rich. I enjoy each and every one of the stories very much. Especially how old friends are mentioned and tied together. Aubrey and Xanthe deserved a HEA. Thank you Thea.

Another Great Listen in a Favorite Series

Each addition to the series brings readers further into the Elder Race world. The characters are unique, each with thier own powers, personalities and backstories. The story is packed with action, intrigue and romance. It's the perfect combination when combined with the high quality narration to bring readers a paranormal treat.

I review for the Guilty Indulgence Review Site.

So adorable!

I needed an Elder Race book...I wasn't happy paying a credit for less than 7 hours of listening, but then again I kind of was! It was worth it!

The coroner turned special medical expert to Carling, this Medusa comes with baggage in the form of her niece. There is a thrilling chase, a who dun it mystery, and many old characters drop in...oh and there is a romance too that was not too shabby!

All in all totally worth the credit!

Part two of the Elder Races tarot card quartet

Destiny's Tarot follows a unique deck of fortune-telling cards that a runaway teen steals at the end of Divine Tarot. Seremela, a medusa, heads into the wilds of a modern day gold rush to extract her niece from a lawless tent city near Devil's Gate.

Readers familiar with the Elder Races series will recognize Seremela as the coroner who helps with investigations in other books. Duncan Turner has also made cameo appearances a premiere attorney in the vampire community. Their hopes of finding Vetta quietly goes out the window when they learn that she is to be hanged the next day. The actual assassin helps them escape, and Vetta is all to happy to give the cards into her keeping.

Xanthe takes them back with her to the dark fae realm, but despite having this powerful tool, it cannot save Chancellor Aubrey Riordan from falling victim to a brutal ambush that leaves him almost dead. The plot runs at a slow pace since the narrative focuses on Aubrey's convalescence with Xanthe.

The narrator does a good job, and fans of the Elder Races series will enjoy getting to know these characters better.

I set aside every other book to read the next Thea Harrison book
The characters the story and the performance are always top notch
The stories tie together seamlessly but can be read separately
