Another great installment in the series. This story, like many in the Immortals after Dark series, starts back at the beginning to give you the starting point from where Lucia and Garreth met. From there we follow them on a thrill ride adventure thru the Amazon. If you haven't read this series, start at the beginning with Emma and Lachlain. You won't be disappointed. The characters are nutty, eccentric, and lovable.

Excellent story. I loved this even more than the first book in the series which up until now has been my favorite Immortals After Dark book. The Immortals After Dark series is a wonderful paranormal series. If you like the Black Dagger Brotherhood books or the Demonica series, you have to read Immortals After Dark. It has all sorts of paranormal beings - vampires, wolf shifters (Lykae), witches, Valkryie, fey, nymphs, etc. The Lykae are my favorite though. The Lykae men are the perfect alpha males. Kresley Cole created a great hero in Garreth, the Lykae prince and brother to the Lykae King. Garreth is sexy, confident, honorable, protective, and very funny.
This is a good solid paranormal romance story. Lucia the Archer, a Valkryie, must remain chaste in order to keep her prowess as an archer. Garreth knows she is his mate and he pursues her around the world trying to win her love and make her his. It's a very compelling story with fast paced action set not only in the bayous in New Orleans but the Brazilian Amazon. The hero and heroine are engaging and well-matched. I wouldn't have put up with as much of a fight if Garreth were chasing me. He would have had me at "Hello lass".
The hero and heroine have some excellent scenes. The first hundred pages are amazingly sexy and sweet. It's hot without being a pornographic how-to section.
This is my first book from Kresley Cole. I liked it but it was a little slow for me in the middle. I put it down a couple of times. Lucia and Garreth are a good couple, but Lachlain and Emma interested me more than Lucia and Garreth. I want to know more about Nix and Regin, I liked it and will continue to read Kresley Cole's series.
