**spoiler alert** So what started out as a crappy night turned into an amazing evening of ups and downs, and OMG moments!
Now there was nothing crappy**spoiler alert** So what started out as a crappy night turned into an amazing evening of ups and downs, and OMG moments!
Now there was nothing crappy about the book, but because I had this to read, it made my journey into the world of Technical Support that much more livable.
I picked up Chained by Night, thinking to myself, I'll start this and then finish it during the week. (What was I thinking.. .right?) This is Larissa Ione we're talking about, and I've never been able to read one of her books, and just pick it up during the week to finish. Somehow, I think my subconscious knew this would be the case, and somehow convinced my brain that while I was tech support hell, only Ione could pull me back from the brink of insanity. So as a remote rep dialed in to fix my computer, I sat and read... and read... and read... Long into the wee hours of the morning.
I love this series! Did I say I love this series? Well I do! Hunter has promised Kars who is from another clan that he would mate with his daughter Rasha in order to bring peace between the clans. Rasha has a twin Aylin who most believe is some grotesque lower than life person. (She is far from that) from the moment I started reading the book, Ione laid out a fairly predictable plot, but in doing so, she sets the stage up for an amazing adventure. As a reader you know that Hunter is going to end of with Aylin.. How could he not, the sister Kasha is stuck up, and basically just a big Ol' BEYOTCH through out most of the story, and what little kindness she does show her sister is not truly a kindness.
I was in Hunt's and Aylin's corner from the start and loved watching these two struggle around each other for their feelings, because when the fire finally sparks, its amazing to watch how it just keeps getting hotter and hotter....
Then Ione throws in the "Tests" that have to be completed by Hunter and his mate, who not only refuses to go, but allows her sister who is "seems" physically unable to go in her stead. This was my favorite part of the entire story. Aylin sacrifices so much. Regardless of how she was brought up to believe she wasn't better than everyone else, and virtually last in the pecking order.
I love strong heroines more than their alpha protective heroes but Hunter also showed a side of himself that I think surprised even me. Even when he was going to try and help her, he listened to her when she told him to stand his ground. Even though everything in him told him to go and save her, he allowed her to be her own person, make her own decision. (BEAUTIFUL)
There was some reveals that happen in this story, we learn a little more about some of the secondary characters, and now I'm left wondering, who's next? The history between Myne and Hunter is revealed and I swear i didn't see that one coming.
Samult is a punk ass, but I'm curious about him.... (Gotta read to find out who he is)
I loved the lore that was created around the characters.
Sex (Check) Steamy (Check)
Once again Ione delivers a powerful tale filled with action and love, and surprises around every corner. Characters that will stay with you even after you close the book. Excited to see what happens in the next installment and who's up for the new "Love Connect" ...more
I truly enjoyed this novel. It wasn't like any of the other Vampire books that I read thus far over the last couple of yearBest Vampire book of 2013!
I truly enjoyed this novel. It wasn't like any of the other Vampire books that I read thus far over the last couple of years. In Ione's world Vampires are the slaves, and humans are doing the unspeakable. But when they rise up against their captives they fight back in a brutal way.
I also enjoyed the Native American aspect of the story and the origins of the Vampires. The mythology was fresh, different. I will be the first to admit I don't normally get down with the Native Americans, and I don't know why that is, its like me with books on Wizards... I can't get into them. But this was not the case here.
I found myself wanting to know more about the clans and their histories, and how they came to be the way they are. I have to say my favorite character in the entire book was the wacky vampire darker.
Katina was another favorite, she had a great sense of humor and was bad ass! I felt bad for Riker and Nicole and the struggle between the two main characters was real for me. I was able to identify with both of them not to mention the between the sheets action... Good lawd those two were hot hot hot!
Im invested in the series and can't wait for the sequel. I'm interested in Hunter as well as Myne... I can't wait for their stories. I hope Katina gets her own story as well...
Great new series that I'm dying to read more of. ...more
The coming of the Blood Moon will lead two Lycan packs into war, spur two rival brothers into cBloodright (Blood Moon Rising Trilogy #2)
by Karin Tabke
The coming of the Blood Moon will lead two Lycan packs into war, spur two rival brothers into conflict, and spark an act of vengeance so evil that its effects will be felt for generations. One woman stands at the center of it all...
After years of waiting, the Blood Law is at last avenged. Lycan Alpha Lucien Mondragon takes revenge on his brother, Rafael. Lucien is poised to slay Rafael's life mate, the Lycan/Slayer half-breed Falon- but cannot complete the kill. For Falon's mystical powers and fiery nature awaken a heart Lucien thought long dead. Instead of ending her life, Lucien defiantly marks Falon as his own, tormenting his brother to insanity and spurning Rafael's blood thirst for his own revenge.
Though terrified by the savage Lucien, Falon finds herself inexplicably drawn to his primal rage and strength by a desire she cannot resist. Torn between the true love she has for Rafael and the burning hunger she holds for Lucien, Falon knows that the will of her heart will lead her to her destined life mate. But it may also doom the Alpha brothers-and the Lycan race-to extinction..
I waited and waited and waited for this book! I was NOT disappointed! Right from the beginning it picks up right where it left off in Blood Law. Rafa and Fallon have agreed to abide by what ever the council decides. It could mean the difference between life and death for both Rafa and Fallon. This stems back from a family feud between Rafa and Luca each alphas of their both packs. Pack Vulkasin and Pack Mondragon. Lucien wants revenge! Rafa slayed his chosen and the term an eye for an eye is literal. Rafa states his chosen Mara was a slayer and of course Luca disagrees whole heartedly.
The council decides to give Fallon over to Lucien and it sets the three of them on a course that is chain reactive for all the packs!
I loved every minute of this book and kept turning pages! I was angry when I had to put the book down, I didn’t want to stop! Fallon doesn’t want to have feelings for Lucien but he gets her on a soul deep level. Brings out a side of her she has never know before. Even with Rafa… Can I just stop right there and say this? WEREWOLF SANDWICHING IS IN!
Now Lucien never thought he would be able to open his heart to another and finds out that he is wrong in ways that only make a girl go *swoon* He’s dark and sinful and sexy as hell! He’s unique bedside manner came be considered taboo to most people but I found that Tabke took you to the edge and pulled you over in a safe way. Who doesn’t want a little werewolf in them? *winks* I know from just seeing some of the comments that people had issues with some of the more “taboo” scenes. But damn she did it up right! I say it was perfect for Luca’s personality, he lived on the edge pushed the envelope not only with his emotions but with Fallon and made her see a side of herself she didn’t know existed.
There is a lot of Rafa in this book and Fallon is equally torn between both brothers and finds that she can’t live without them. The power of three will unite the packs and vanquish the slayers for all time come the rising! And I am all for it as long as it entails the three of them tangled on the forest floor enjoying themselves! HA! I’m serious there is a scene in this book that you will enjoy if your into Werewolf Sandwiches!
I loved the dynamics of the packs and how they were all emotionally connected to their alphas, when the alphas mated the pack mated and when the alpha gets with cub then the packs will begin to reproduce. That is strong family connection right there! Then of course there are a few surprises there is Layla who Fallon recognizes from her past and then there is Fenrir and the ring! (In a Lord of the Rings voice) The one true ring to rule them all! The precious! Fallon tests her emotional boundaries as well as her physical and mental boundaries, she’s got powers beyond a Lycans.
I gotta say I know where this is headed and I am eager to see how it all plays out and of course Tabke leaves you on edge at the end wanting the next book NOW! Be prepared to get pulled into a world deep with emotions and heartache…. Because Bloodright will take you there and back again only to leave you wanting!
Hands down I enjoyed this book it gets more than 5 starts more like 10!...more
