He's a Wyr warrior, a god of storms. She's the heir to the Dark Fae throne. But desire will bring both to their knees in this all-new Novel of the Elder Races.
During the rule of her murderous Dark Fae uncle, Thistle "Tricks" Periwinkle found sanctuary among the Wyr in New York. Her ethereal beauty and sparkling personality won the hearts of the public, but after her uncle's death, there are those who don't want to see her ascend to the throne.
Able to wield thunder and lightning, Wyr sentinel Tiago Black Eagle has ruled the skies for centuries. His massive build and thunderous power make him one of the Wyr's best weapons. And he's sent to protect Tricks when she's almost assassinated in Chicago.
Soon, both Tiago and Tricks will fall prey to the stormy hunger that engulfs them—a passion that will shake the very foundation of all the worlds.
Going into this book I already knew I liked our heroine. We met Tricks, aka Niniane, in Dragon Bound, and I instantly liked her. She’s hilarious and spunky, and has a huge heart. I didn’t really remember Tiago from the first book, but he was instantly intriguing. His personality is brash most of the time, but you just have to see past that and realize his intentions are always good ones. And his sense of humor was definitely one I can appreciate. Together these two made for one entertaining pairing.
I had such a good time reading this book. It was really fun, with just the right amount of seriousness when called for. We also get such a build-up for the sexytimes in this book, but holy smokes is it worth the wait!! Tiago is one powerful male and he certainly conveys that power well in all aspects of himself…if you know what I mean. ;)
Niniane’s life is at stake in this book. She’s to ascend to the throne and someone would rather see her dead than be Queen of the Dark Fae. The mystery behind this was well crafted…until I met the character who’d turn out to be the culprit and I somehow knew. I just felt it somehow. I don’t know if it was the way they were written or if they were the logical or obvious choice, but I just knew it. It didn’t take away from the story in any way though.
This book left me with such a content feeling upon finishing. Tiago and Niniane will be ok and they have forever to figure out all the things that may come their way. I look forward to continuing this series…maybe even read all of it this year. :D If you’re looking for a Paranormal Romance series with a vast and imaginative world, with characters who are well developed, look no further!
Thank you, Amanda, for suggesting I read this book. It can certainly see why this series is a favorite of yours. :)
Whose Favorite Book Is This?
That would be the lovely Amanda of On a Book Bender! Amanda is one of the funnest tweeps I have come to know over my blogging lifetime of two years. I actually hope we can one day meet in real life…maybe she should make it down to ALA in Chicago this Summer. Just sayin. :P I mean, how far is Minnesota from Illinois? Looks doable on this map of the US I just googled! hehe
Anyway, if you are not following Amanda, you should definitely start. Her reviews are fun and her discussion posts are always some of my favorites.
Here’s what she had to say as to why she pick this book for me to read:
I chose Storm’s Heart by Thea Harrison for Jess to read for two reasons. 1. The Elder Races series is one of my favorite series EVER and if I think someone might even maybe remotely like it (yes, exactly like that), I suggest it. 2. Jess has read the first book in the series (Dragon Bound) and according to Goodreads, she gave it five stars. The logical step from there is to continue reading the series.
