Warning - this has a cliff hanger ending. I HATE that. If I'd know, I would have waited for the release of Master of Smoke and just bought both of them then.
Good read, hot sex, but you really don't see much typing the h/h together except sex and location/profession. I'm guessing they might be further developed in the next book - as Smoke [who is the hero of the next book] was started in this one.
There is an ongoing series arc - books should really be read in order [although the short stories are not as involved with the main storyline as the novels.]
1. Seduction's Gift (2004) (in Hot Blooded)
2. Master of the Night (2004)
3. Galahad (2005) (in Bite)
4. Master of the Moon (2005)
5. Master of Wolves (2006)
6. Moon Dance (2007) (in Over the Moon)
7. Master of Swords (2006)
8. Master of Dragons (2007)
9. Master of Fire (2010)
Angela Knight's Mageverse series; the story of Giada Shepherd, immortal witch, and Logan MacRoy, forensic chemist that investigates crimes, arson, and bombings, and the son of King Arthur. I was a little lost a few times b/c it's been so long since I read one, but it was just as good as all the rest. There was a good amount of action, suspense, and sex.
I have been a long time fan on Angela Knight and I was wondering if she would ever add to the Mageverse series. I was so excited to read this book when I found out that she had that I could hardly wait for it to arrive. I enjoyed this book, but it definitely was not nearly as good as her previous books in this series. I really liked both lead characters (Logan and Gaida), but it just seemed that the plot of this book was a bit rushed. However, the romance was hot and steamy which is typical of Knight.
Also I recommend that you read some of the previous Mageverse books before you read this one. It will be more interesting if you understood the concept better and had a feel for the Dire Wolves/Knights/Fae and their communities before reading this. Otherwise, the reader may feel like they are missing something.
This book ended in a bit of a cliff hanger, leading into the next story Master of Smoke. I expect that it will be a great read, and I can't wait to read it after all the ground work was laid in this book. There is a lot of build up in this book for Smoke! I can't wait until it comes out!
It was interesting to revisit the Mageverse series, it wasn't too long ago that Knight's was one of the few paranormal romance series out there - unlike today when there are so many series to choose from. Knight's book was more erotic than I'd remembered and I'll admit that the book hit pretty much all of my unfavorite sensual words and almost all of them in two back to back paragraphs, which likely is part of the reason that I didn't enjoy the book as much as other reviewers. Still it was pretty good and I found the supporting character who was a fae god disguised as a cat intriguing so Iam still tempted to check out the next book, Master of Smoke, where he takes centerstage.
