Great story - The book was 533 pages and I sailed through it. Held my attention, I laughed, cried, cringed and related to the characters.
This is the story of Nykyrian who is a lost soul, assassin who has shut down his emotions in order to survive a life filled with pain, rejection, distrust, discrimination, hate, and regret. He has resigned to the fact that he will be alone the rest of his life and is ok with that. The problem is a certain dancer who has grabbed his attention with her dancing...
A big fan of J.R. Ward and the Brotherhood series. Looked forward to the new series and was not let down. Book one did take a while to get the story started and bounced back and forth between characters which I always find a bit annoying as I have to flip back to previously read pages to put pieces together. Once the story uncovered it was a story of loss, revenge, betrayal and love. An interesting twist on the fallen angels and I look forward to the next in the series.
The second book in the series the story is beginning to pick up and the characters are becoming more familiar. The age old story of Heaven vs. Hell with Wards twist. Love the fallen angels storyline and of course the four on the green.
This was my favorite book of the series so far. I love the story of Gideon and Scarlet.
This book made my heart ache, sing and made me giggle and at times laugh out loud. I love the Gideon speak and the scene with Cronus and Gid watching the sporting event was hilarious!
Looking forward to the next book.
As much as I love this series this was not my favorite book. I really like the character AMUN but the story was drawn out and never really went anywhere. The book could have been written with 100 pages less and it would have still been the same story without the fluff.
Great story of Sabin and Gwen. The people associated with Sabin and Gwen are each others enemy. The relationship is tested time and again. The ultimate test is for Sabin and Gwen in the last chapter of the book. This definitely sets the storyline for future books in the series.
The story of Malkom and Carrow is one of my favorites. The vemon and a witch - opposites do attract. Malkom is in such a dark place both physically and figuratively when Carrow finds him, it doesn't seem possible for him show emotions such as love and tenderness. I adored the innocence Malkom possessed and his need to be accepted by Carrow. Malkom is my favorite character thus far.
I agree with the other reviewers this is a darker side to Shade and his sexual fetishes. That being said - I LOVED IT! I literally couldn't put this one down - forget the weekend chores I read this on a Saturday afternoon cover to cover!
Shade the tortured bad boy and Runa found more than she went looking for.
Runa is someone we can all relate to, having been rejected in a relationship. Life experiences make her stronger and she returns a year later to meet Shade in an dark dungeon.
Shade has a sexual appetite that can't be suppressed by the standard vanilla he has to take it to the extreme - pain and misery for his partners only. No emotional contact and he is always the one in control until he meets Runa in the Dungeon...
Great book! Picked this one up as a book club read. Hadn't heard much about the storyline so it was nice to see it unfold. The book does leave you hanging in anticipation for the second book of the Trilogy "Shadow of the Night" due to release this summer. I am looking forward to it.
Beginning a new series with a new author is always a gamble, the MacKaylaa Lane series is worth the risk! I was pulled into the story from book one!
Book four is my favorite of the series so far! The ending oh!!! KMM your killing me... Thankfully I waited to read the series until now and the Fifth and final book has been released. I am on my way to the bookstore to purchase it now!!
Amazing twists and turns in the storyline - keeps me engaged. The books in this series are large 900+ pages but they draw you in and before you know it you have completed one and can't wait to crack the next one. 20 years since Jaime and Claire married and their love is stronger than ever.
