Eye of the Beholder (True Destiny #2)
Justice isn’t blind anymore.
True Destiny, Book 2
Travis Yardley-Rudiger deliberately stayed away from Jamie Grimm, desperate not to pull her into the petty war of wills between him and her grandfather, Oliver Grimm. Unfortunately the reemergence of Baldur and Loki and their claiming of Jamie’s sister Jordan put her squarely in Grimm’s sights. Her torture at Grimm’s hands...more
The problem with the romance is that, in addition to there not being any development to Travis/Tyr and Jamie's relationship, there was no real development of their characters. (Basically, the romance is: Tyr decides that it's no longer creepy for ...more
My advice is to read Book 1. You could probably muddle your way through book 2 without the first one but why frustrate your reading experience. Book 2 immediately picks up the story from book one. DMB has a wonderful ability to spin an engaging and entertaining tale.
Nik and Mancinelli/Jeff and Fenris...oh there will be more stories definitely. That Grimm is a wiley Old Man.

Travis and Jamie have already been in love with each other for years without admitting it, mainly because they first met when she was 16 and he needed for her to grow up even though he'll always be centuries older. After Odin tortured Jamie, he's not going to hold back any more.

The cast of characters really drives this story and I can't wait to read the next one in the series.
