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?

amandaonabookbender

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.

      SIX HOURS is TOTALLY DOABLE! :) Just a thought. I’ll be there, in case you decide to go.

      I will FOR SURE continue reading it! :D

    How fun! I love this feature–and you could hardly have picked a better series to continue with. Dragon Bound remains my favorite–with Oracle’s Moon a close second–but I love Storm’s Heart, too. Who wouldn’t?

      Yeah, Dragon Bound was great!! And since I loved this one too, I can imagine I’ll love the whole series. :)

  2. Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley)

    First of all, I love fae. I love that you loved this too, Jess. Also, ahem. It just sounds really good.

    And yay, I don’t know Amanda! I need to go RIGHT NOW and check out her blog.

    I suppose I should read the first book before this one, since you gave it 5 stars?

    Also I LOVE this feature. LOVE. IT.
    (Wow, these thoughts are all over the place and completely fueled by coffee. Off to find Amanda!)

      OMG, YAY! So glad you went off to find Amanda!! I love her. :) And I’m also with you on the love for fae! The first book, Dragon Bound, would be a great place to start.

    I LOVE THIS!!! Did I sign up for it? I sure hope I did. I vaguely remember an email…

    Tiago is my ultimate favorite hero in this series. I adore their relationship!! But like Amanda says, books 5 & 6 are rockstar awesome. And you must read the novellas! One of the novellas is my favorite piece of the entire series!

      Jess @ Gone with the Words

      YOU DID SIGN UP!! (I won’t tell you what you picked if you don’t remember. You’ll just have to be surprised when it’s your turn!)

      I LOVED Tiago. He was such a smart-ass, I loved it! Looking forward to reading more of this series. :)
