Publisher's Summary

The adventure of a lifetime might just end in turmoil, but when it includes meeting your future mate, who gives a hoot?

A Novella of the Elder Races

For a librarian with a focus on rare magic books, Olivia's new job is a dream come true. She has been hired as part of a team to help manage the safe transportation of the collection of books owned by the Vampyre sorceress Carling Severan. The fact that the library is located on a mysterious island in an Other land only heightens the adventure.

Head of security for the expedition, Sebastian Hale is tired of his rootless life of adventure and finds himself attracted to the calm, beautiful librarian. But he is living a personal nightmare. He has been hit with a curse that is slowly taking away his sight, and he doesn't know if he will survive the results.

But the powerful feelings growing between them, along with Sebastian's inner turmoil, take a backseat when they learn there is a traitor lurking among their expedition team. With Elder Races politics and a priceless library on the line, they'll have to rely on each other to survive the experience.

Warning: When a librarian who likes to nest meets an owl Wyr who has always lived for adventure, their romance won't just be fly-by-night...

    Story
    "Love me some Elder Races!!!"

    I totally love me some Elder Races...the whole series is simply AWESOMENESS!!!

    I like the books, far better than the novellas, but the one novella about Dragos was great...

    This one, was ..... interesting and fulfilling with the Elder Races overall story... but the chemistry and smexyness of the books is lacking in the novellas..

    Totally worth it if you have already invested in the Elder Races series... An easy skip if you have not...

    Narration of course was totally on point! Eastlake is the Elder Races...

    Great buy or sale... don't credit this... save your credit for a full book!

    Story
    "Sebastian can get wicked with me anytime."

    Out of all the novella's that Thea Harrison wrote this is one of the best ones that was written about random people in the Elder series. This statement does not include all the short stories about Dragos and Pia, because those to me are only an extension of their original story. For such a short story this is a great little romance with enough adventure and action to keep me happy. The characters are great and this story gives me a hankering to read the rest of the series again. I would like to see Faedra the Djinn to have her own story, but I guess we will see. Narrator is good, I have enjoyed her from the beginning.

    Story
    "Thea Harrison does it again!"

    Thea Harrison doesn't know how to write a bad or boring story.
    This was fun and satisfying. Her world of nightkind is so well written, and Harrison never disappoints with original characters and romantic pairings. Altho a bit pricy for less-than 4 hours, it is worth it. You'll love it!

    Story
    "short and sweet"

    I loved hearing about Grace and her new life as the Oracle. Part of me wanted this story to be fully developed but it was nice to have a short story to listen to in an evening and morning session

    Story
    "Wicked Deliciousness"

    This was a yummy little taste of the Elder Races. While nothing major happens to advance the story arc for the series, it's a short sexy listen and pure top-notch entertainment.

    I review for the Guilty Indulgence Review Site.

    "One of my fave stories in the series"

    Definitely recommend this little HEA gem. This story features Grace the Oracle's friend Olivia finding her new love Sebastian. They both have personal challenges they overcome. Sebastian does need the help of The Oracle, leading to a hilarious scene with Grace. Yes, Eastlake is the voice of the series. It's not a very long story, but well crafted action in a compressed story. Recommend.

    "Paranormal gothic romance with a touch of funny"

    Elder Race porn in a quick read. Well, maybe not porn but definitely a steamy, quick read. Kind of like a paranormal gothic romance with a touch of funny. Thea Harrison never disappoints. Keep them coming. Great story! Love this author and recommend anything in the series!

    Story
    "Great srory."

    I enjoy all the Elder Races stories. It is pure enjoyment to listen to Sophie Eastlake bring these stories to life. I am always disappointed to realize I have come to the end of each book. Since I have listened to the entire series including up to Liam Takes Manhatten, I have now just finished a second listen of the series. I enjoyed The Wicked novella, though it was Sebastian's and Olivia's story, because it gave me a peek at Grace, the Oracle and Phaedra, the damaged Djinn from the Oracle's Moon, book 4 I belive. I hope to read more about this Djinn and her story in a later book,. She fascinates me. Thea Harrison is a favorite author. I love the worlds she builds. So much detail that I can literally feel surrounded by her story. I see everyone and everything very clearly.
