The basis for this story was that the author read an article about an excavation of ancient Viking graves, and she wondered what if someone who knew them was still alive?
She has a race descended from the Vikings, they aren't immortal, but they're very long-lived. And in one scene the hero has a necklace that he'd given his wife on their wedding day, and he'd had her buried with it. He'd had to steal it from the excavation site.
It's a good series,...more
I think that my main problem was with the world building. I didn't get a good idea of what a Kyth was or how their culture worked. I gathered that they are "psychic vampires" but the nature of their power was never clearly defined. The book also explains...more
The story line is interesting as she has taken the immortal warrior and given the familiar character a new spin without trying to over explain it. The hero is flawed but only because of centuries of other's judgments and quite frankly, he's tired of what he does. That was honestly refres...more
I first got into Alexis Morgan's Paladins of Darkness series back in 2008 and I enjoyed and liked the different storyline that I kept on reading and when I found out there was a sort of spin off series Talions I was more than happy to keep up with Ms Morgans new series.
My main problem with this book was that the plot was not well developed. When I start a series I want the first book to explain the world in a way I will understand it easily and get to love it from the beginning. Well with this installment I finished the book and I never felt like I actually got to understand the species the Talions defend and protect. Much more info should have given IMHO....more

engage with here as there were three people tied in a sticky web -
Ranulf the Talion Enforcer, Talion Sandor Kearn his bitter rival and
the heroine Kerry Logan who does not realise her background is of Kyth
blessed with ancient and unique abilities.
The storyline incorporated Sandor a lot - yet it was the relationship
between Kerry and Ranulf I felt could have been stronger and I began
to feel sorry for Talion Sandor and almost wished he'd get...more
Her heroines are smart and independent, and they demand -- and get -- respect from their sometimes high-handed men. Danger and passion combine to create partnerships, not just pages of steamy sex.
I also found the battle with the big bad an anti-climax as the story lead you to believe him as ultimate evil yet my gran would have put up more of a fight, not that you really got a good sense of the final fight.
I loved the heat between Ranulf and Kerry, just perfect. Kerry Logan's character was so well done, she is strong and powerful, with a mind of her own. I will definately be reading the others in the series. Loved it from start to finish!
