*2,5 stars*
*spoiler free review*

This was my first book by Beverly Barton and my least favorite story of the trilogy.

The first 3/4 of the story happen at the same time of books 1 and 2. Mercy is Dante and Gideon little sister, she has the gift of empathy and is the guardian of the Sanctuary, the sacred Raintree home place.

Judah is the Dranir of the Ansara clan.

If I liked Mercy, I'm not sure about Judah. Also, I couldn't believe in their couple.

I rounded up my rating because of

Evet serinin son kitabını bitirmenin ve bu gerilimin biterek olayların bir sonuca bağlanmasının neşesini yaşamaktayım.

description

ilk iki kitabda olaylar bir yere bağlanamayıb da merakımı körükleyince hemen son kitaba daldım.Ve tahmin ettiğim gibi bu kitap son kardeş Mercy'den bahs ediyordu.Onun da başına Dante ve Gideon gibi olaylar gelib de aşkını bulacağını umarken her şey daha derin çıktı.

İlk sayfadan Ansara klanıyla tanışıyoruz ve onların kralı Judah Ansara ile :D

War with their archrival, the evil Ansara clan, is unavoidable. For Mercy Raintree, a war means she must assume her position as guardian of the Sanctuary—the sacred Raintree home place deep in the Smoky Mountains. But doing so threatens to disclose her most prized secret—one Mercy has kept to herself for six years.

As the solstice looms and the battle heats up, Dranir Judah Ansara gathers his forces, intending to wipe every R...more

Raintree Üçlemesinin son kitabı sığınak ile bu muhteşem seriyi bitirmiş bulunuyorum..Serinin En güzel serüveni idi bence.Bir an bile elimden bırakamadım desem..
Sayfaları nasıl çevirdiğimi bilemedim.Aşk,Tutku,macera,savaş,temaları ile harmanlanmış bu serüven bittiğinde çok üzüldüm..Daha 224 sayfa olsa okuyacaktım..
Serinin son kitabında Dante ve Gideon'dan sonra ailenin dişi üyesi Mercy Raintree'ye aitti. Serinin en heyecanlı hikayesi olması bir bakıma önceki maceraların yarım kalması ve Dante ve...more

1.5 / 2

Raintree serisinin son kitabı da taze taze bitmiş bulunuyor. Öncelikle şunu söylemek istiyorum. Hayır ters tarafımdan kalkmadım, hayır yazara garezim yok, ilk defa kitabını okuyorum. Birazdan bu soruları sormanız muhtemel çünkü.

Bu seriye Linda Howard'la başlamak büyük hata olmuş bana kalırsa. Çıta acayip yükselmiş. Bazı yorumlarda pek yeterli bulunmadığını okusam da bence en güzeli Cehennem'di. Sonra Adalet, bir doz daha düşük olsa da güzeldi. Sempatikti, sıcaktı. Keşke bu kitapta aynı ş...more

Harus baca buku pertamanya Inferno sama yang kedua, Haunted, biar bisa ngikutin yang ini.

Kisah bak Romeo dan Juliet, hanya saja disini Julietnya kebablasan punya anak --"

Judah sama Mercy ga saling kenal pas pertama ketemu, walau langsung uhuk2 aja (jyaa). Belakangan baru pada tau identitas masing - masing. Judah pemimpinnya Ansara, dan Mercy penyembuh klan saingannya Judah, Raintree. Tapi kehadiran anak mereka berdua, Eve, malah jadi nyatuin dua pasangan cinta-benci-kejar-aku-kau-kuta...more

My favorite around the trilogy, but don't like the ending, Rainsara? the author can make better than that

FYI, rahasia yang selama ini dijaga Mercy adalah Eve, anak separuh Raintree dan Ansara hasil affair singkatnya dengan Judah 7 tahun yang lalu. Dari semua seri Raintree, Sanctuary adalah favorit saya, mungkin karena buku ini adalah buku terakhir sekaligus seri pamungkas, sukses membuat saya addicted dalam membacanya. Tapi karakter utama dibuku ini hanya Judah, Mercy dan Eve, karena itu jangan...more

It's a shame that Sanctuary was the last in the Raintree trilogy, it was the weakest of the three books. Reading this trilogy is like going on a vacation where you get sick the last two days. You know you enjoyed the first few days but what you remember is the bad ending.

The heroine was weak, both in will and mind. (Who cares if he is an evil 'bad guy' I knew him for 24 hrs 7 yrs ago and I love him. He wants me dead and practically rapes me but that's okay, I love him.) I wouldn't let her water...more

Serinin finali muhteşem oldu kesinlikle bayıldım... Üç kitap arasında en çok bunu beğendim, bitirene kadar başından kalkamadım müthişti... İlk iki kitapta Dante ve Gideon'un yaşadıkları süresince Mercy'nin nelerle uğraştığını okuduk... Ve her hikaye harika bir şekilde birbirine bağlandı... Seri keşke bitmese dedirtti bana... Daha da uzatsalar okurdum kaç kitap çıkarsa çıksın :D
Mystery serisi bitecek mi şimdi ben onu merak ediyorum :S Umarım devam eder Harlequin duy sesimi :D

Opinião dos três volumes:

http://cronicasdeumaleitora.blogspot....

A série Raintree conta com três livros cada um escrito por uma escritora diferente. No entanto contam a história dos três irmãos Raintree.
Sendo o primeiro o de Dante Raintree, escrito pela Linda Howard.
Dante, tal como os irmãos, possui o dom orientando então o fogo, o seu elemento. Dono de um Casino muito conhecido chamado Inferno, e de onde ele gere os negócios da pequena família Raintree. Mas, alguém anda a ganhar demasiado dinh...more

Sonunda "Raintree" serisinin son kitabını da bitirerek seriyi bitirmiş bulunuyorum. Kısa, tadı damağımızda kalan hevesle daha fazla okumak istediğimiz tatmin edici akıcı sürükleyici bir çırpıda biten bir seri olmuş... Üç farklı yazarın kalemleri birbiri ile karışarak okura müthiş bir ziyafet sunulmuş bir seri... daha ne olsun :)

Cehennem'de Dante Raintree'yi Adalet'te Gideon Raintree'yi ve son olarak Sığınak'ta da Mercy Raintree'yi okuduk. Üç kardeşin aşkın...more

I had low expectations for this novel when I picked it up because the first two novels in the trilogy were disappointing, but Raintree: Sanctuary was actually the strongest and most enjoyable of the three. That doesn’t mean that it was without its faults, but I found it far more engrossing with a better back-story than either Raintree: Inferno or Raintree: Haunted. The protagonist, Mercy, was actually quite likeable and compelling. Supernatural elements and powers were explored further and in mo...more

akhirnya kita mencapai buku ketiga.

pembaca mengakui dirinya mengintip bagian akhir selagi membaca karena rasa penasarannya yang besar.

sebagai pelindung sanctuary dan perempuan satu-satunya dalam trilogi Raintree, pembaca mengharapkan kisah dan karakter yang jauh lebih spektakuler dari kedua kakaknya.

sebagai pion Raitree, Mercy seharusnya tidak menjalin hubungan dengan Judah Ansara, pemimpin suku musuh bebuyutan Raintree. meski begitu, mereka memiliki putri kecil cantik, Eve.

I do like how all three books of the trilogy interweave with books 1, 2 and 3 mostly taking place at the same time and wraps up everything in this volume.

Mercy Raintree got pregnant the only time she left her family's protection. Now her six-year old daughter, Eve, is very powerful and learning her secrets. Judah Ansara has his own problems. His half-brother is trying to get them into war with Raintree too soon and wants to kill him and take the throne.

The ending seemed like a cop out to me. And...more

Daripada penasaran, jadilah aku nodong ibu kost buat menjual buku yang terakhir ini, padahal buku ini belum nongkrong di lemari berlabel "dijual" di taman bacaan :P

Ok... lanjut baca! Dan...

Lho... perang akbar antar klan yang dijanjikan di buku 1 dan 2 ternyata kok biasa saja? Bahkan duel antara Dranir Raintree dan Ansara yang kuharapkan malah batal. Aaaaargh! Kok dendam turun temurun akhirnya cuma begitu saja? Nggak seru!

Setelah ngedumel, baru ingat ini kan buku Harlequin. Cerita cum...more

Didn't like this one as much as the first two. Didn't care about the characters as much and felt the romance was lacking. Still, had a solid-ish ending for the series, plot wise.

Dari ketiga seri Raintree Buku inilah yang paling bgs.

Perseteruan dua klan mencapai puncaknya: Ansara dan Raintree. Ada kisah cinta layaknya Romeo dan Juliet, antara Montague dan Capulet, klan yang telah bermusuhan sejak lama (200? atau 400? tahun), klan Ansara menyerukan pembalasan dendam luluhur mereka terhadap klan Raintree, Dranir (Raja) Ansara; Judah Ansara malah jatuh cinta pada musuh bebuyutan mereka Putri Raintree; Mercy Raintree.

Este livro foi o melhor dos três .. é desde a primeira página completamente viciante !
Não deu para parar de ler .. a história de amor entre o Dranir Ansara e a Princesa Raintree é linda, e simplesmente contagiante , estava sempre ansiosa para ler o que ia acontecer-lhes a seguir e só pensava "Mas ainda não é agora que eles vão perceber que se amam?? Meus deus é tão óbvio" :)

Adorei mesmo, estes livrinhos merecem e muito ser lidos *-*

I really enjoyed the first 2 books in this series, but I gave this book 2 stars because it just didn't add up to the others. I didn't like the 'hero', he was overbearing and a jerk. Eve, the daughter, was a spoiled little brat. She whined and manipulated the people around her. Mercy was ok, but she needed to discipline her daughter and not let her get away with everything. Another disappointment was the characters in the first 2 books only made an appearance at the very end and I like reading ab...more

Meh. The end was so abrupt as to be unbelievable. I mean, really, two peoples are just going to drop 200 years of hatred in 5 minutes because some 6-year-old says they're now changed? And I never really felt like Judah changed enough to be good enough for Mercy. Sure he saved her but he still was all about taking advantage of her and looking out for his people no matter what (whereas the Raintree were willing to help humans even if it hurt their people).
Diana
The fateful week leading up to the Ansara attack on the Raintree Sanctuary finds Mercy Raintree, Sanctuary's guardian, coming face to face with Judah Ansara, the father of her daughter, for the first time since they slept together.

A great conclusion that has the requisite tension. Judah seemed a little too forceful, a throwback to the 'alpha male' heroes. However, the interactions with Eve lightened the book considerably.
Shae
So the final book in the raintree series was a real letdown. I didn't like the characters at all. I wish there had been more funny moments or something that would make me actually like either Mercy or Judah. The two of them spent one day together years and years ago, and all they had was sexual attraction. How does that add up to love at the end? There really was no reason for love or anything like that. Bah.
Amar
Was disappointed in the third addition on this series...liked the other two much better...Judah wasn't very likable and Mercy seemed very namby-pamby...liked Eve I guess but she was a bit too precocious for me. The big Summer Solictice battle was a letdown too...did like the way the Ansara became Rainsara though...kind of seemed hard to believe that Mercy would leave her tribe and family for Judah.
Patrice
This is the final book in the trilogy and it was good but, I feel it wasn't as good as the second book. All-in-all a very good trilogy that had a very interesting story line and that each book was written by a different author. I would definitely recommend this series to anyone that likes to read paranormal stories.
Joene
The final book of a really cool trilogy, and this one tells of Sanctuary, where even children should be safe, but danger lurks in dark. Two groups have to form a truce and learn to live with one another, not attempting to destroy the other group all the time. Good storyline, and I enjoyed reading this series.

Recommends it for: Anyone
Even though this series is considered a Harlequin romance set of books, they are in fact, more sci-fi, than romantical. They combine a good selectiion of present day living situations with slightly advanced "sci'fi" sets of circumstance. The books are well balanced, and do not overly stretch the imagination.
