Loved this book! Some of Hawke's books are heavy on the BDSM element, but this one doesn't have too much. She still gives us a great alpha hero and tough, but lovable heroine.
I hope that the author puts out more books in this world. I really enjoyed the mixture of fantasy and historical.
This is really good but a little far-fetched. It's more urban fantasy than paranormal with vampires, werewolves, magic, science, the plague and let's not forget wild sex.
Werewolf Thorn is a courier for the US government in the 1800s. Her mission is to deliver some documents to Rumania. Along the way she is intercepted by Yaroslav, the vampire, who is seriously sexy and dominant. The sparks immediately fly and Thorn is trapped by her sexual nature. Then zombies appear and otherworld politics intrude so it's off to the castle in the sky (literally) to appear before the Senate. Like I said a little far-fetched but very enjoyable. The sex is a little rough and violent but the werewolf and the vampire seem to hit is off tremendously and neither gets hurt.
This book was really good! It had werewolves, vampires, magic, zombies, steam-punk elements. The one thing that was odd, Thorn's dialogue seemed really modern for a Victorian-era novel. She was American, but it still seemed out of place many times. I loved the book, though.
I like her other books but this was a major snooze fest.
Love this author. This book isn't as good as other stuff I've read by her. But, not a bad read.
I loved this story at first it was a little long but it keep you guessing what was going to happen.
