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

Good story line! I like Uncle Val and Jeff! Wish they'd kill off Odin!

I enjoyed the first book in this series quite a lot, which might be why I'm so disappointed in this one. As a romance, this didn't work for me at all. As a continuation in the saga, I'm still interested enough in the overall story to read the next book.

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

I'm a Dana Marie Bell fan so I enjoyed this book. I bought it, read it, and am reviewing it on the same day.

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.

Bell, Dana Marie; EYE OF THE BEHOLDER [True Destiny, #2]

Ebook; genre:{paranormal romance}, shelves: |author: Dana Marie Bell |
|Rating: 5* - Favorite, will re-read all the time = FANGIRLING HAS COMMENCED|
|paranormal, gods/myths: Norse|

Personally, I don't enjoy giving "SPOILERS" as a rule, so I believe the general synopsis above or on the book flap if it's a hard copy should give you all the pertinent information you need. I do include the basics under synopsis thou

This author never fails to educate and thrill me with richly complex plots that keep me guessing, and Eye of the Beholder is everything I'd hoped for and more! Dana Marie Bell's world building, based on a fusion of Norse mythology and modern themes ensured that I had to read this book in one sitting. I literally could not put it down. This story can be read by itself, but I highly recommend that you begin with the first book in the series to have a deeper understanding of "who's who" in the True ...more
Travis has been in love with Jaime Grimm since she was 16, but he has kept his distance, waiting for her to get a little older. Especially considering the fact that he's a centuries old Norse God. But after Jaime's grandfather kidnapped and tortured her he can't keep his distance anymore. Jamie is a pain, lots of it and when the man she has loved for years starts acting like her boyfriend she discovers that her world is not what she thought.

Eye of the Beholder is the second book in Dana Marie B

(This review may contain spoilers).

Although I liked this book, it wasn't quite as much as the first one. I felt that there was too much summarising of the past relationship between Travis and Jamie and not enough build-up before they jumped into bed with each other.

There were still some amusing moments in the book and I really liked the other characters - though I obviously hate Odin. I also think that the blood bonding thing works really well and is really quite interesting.

The sex scenes were

I loved this book just as much as the first in the series. Again, Bell held up to my expectations with her steamy writing as well as in depth story line. Travis and Jamie are loveable characters. It’s sweet that they have both liked each other for so long but never did anything about it. Jamie’s character seems to be a strong willed female full of sugar as well as fire; Travis is a good match for her. Jamie’s twin Jeff is amazing! I love his tough take-no-crap attitude, and that he’s gay. It’s n ...more

This is by far the best series I have read by Ms. Bell so far. It leaves the Halle & Poconos shifters series behind. Better characters, multiple story arcs, better world building. I'm actually curious about what's going to happen in the next book. The epilogue has just enough for shadowing to make you want more but not so much as to spoil all the plots. I also like the fact that she doesn't just dump the characters from the first book, they are all still there and integral to the plot as wel ...more

I liked this, and I read it pretty much straight through, but it definitely focused a whole lot more on the main storyline than on any romance.

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.

This does have a graphic description of Jamie's torture, which I'm not sure it

Too many characters to keep track of
I'm not familiar with Norse mythology, so I had trouble keeping track of everyone and who's on whose side. On the romantically develop side, there wasn't one, we go in knowing that both the H/h had been pining for each other, and suddenly it's ok for them to be together, then they are together. I think this the last of this series in going to read. I'm just not interested in how Grimm dies his well-deserved death enough to get tugged along this confusing too m

This is definitely a favorite series of mine and I love all of the characters in the storyline. I especially love Jamie and Travis! Jamie is hilarious and her thought process is so entertaining. It's also so cute to see the way Travis try's to sneak under her radar to fit himself into her life and show how much he really does care. The amount of God drama and romance is also perfect for the book and keeps it interesting and fresh!

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!

Jamie is wonderful, Travis(Tyr)is hot and the story flows well. But, I really wanted a little more emotion from Travis. I felt just like Jamie, WTF, he hasn't paid any attention to her in 10 years and all of a sudden he is all over her like white on rice.
The cast of characters really drives this story and I can't wait to read the next one in the series.

My inner goddess is so happy with this series. I absolutely love Norse mythology, and it's so hard to find any fun books out there. The characters are great, and the action ties in well from book to book.

I like this series. This book was about Tyr (Travis) and Jaime. They finally hook up and the gods share their powers with her. In this book you can see how far Odin is really willing to go to get what he wants.

This one was a bit harder to follow with all the double names (old ones/new modern ones) and the political intrigue. I'm still in, but I hope I don't need a notecard for the next one.
