He is a deranged, perverted, psycho, but somehow also absolutely perfect! Oh my gosh I just love Erik so much its crazy! A few months ago I would have said that I would never read this book. But I love K.A. Merikan and I read The Cattery because it sounded pretty mild. I ended up enjoying it and it made me curious about animal role-playing. So I decided to go for it and read this, and I am so glad I did!...more

The battle was epic, but I would have liked way more closure. Everything has changed in the end. After so many deaths the whole world needs to be rebuilt and all new leaders chosen and we don't know how that will work out, but I can assume it does.
And I especially want to know what happens to Mat and Rand. Are Mat and Tuon able to live with each other? I never thought she deserved him. And are the Seanchan able to keep their peace? It doesn't matter because I will always hate them as long as they continue to use damane.
What does Rand do now? Is he alone? Do any of the women go after him? The only who really could without being missed or without people figuring out who he is is Min. And she was always my favourite anyway. I wish she had been the only woman for Rand. But Aviendha must go after him since Min said she would have his children. But that would be suspicious, especially since she told one of the wise ones about Min's viewing.
I just don't like some many questions. And where did Olver go? Do Pavara and Androl get together? I could go on and on. ...more

Adventure is up, the action and suspense is up, and the romance is up and more complicated! There is still very little paranormal aspects to this story. The details of the Mandate and the prophecy of the girl with the purple eyes include a bit of mysticism. And the way they discover some of the treasures is a bit unusual, as well as Stellan's healing abilities, but that is the full extent of it.
I knew that Stellan would be made more of a love interest in book 2, but I was not expecting to love him as much as I do. I didn't care for him too much in book 1. Am I Team Stellan now? I think I am! Which is really surprising because I loved Jack in book 1. I know Avery was mad at Jack for a lot of things he did in this book, but I actually understood his point of view on those decisions. I don't blame him and I still like him, but those disagreements show us that Avery and Jack don't blend as well as we thought. I don't know what will happen in the end. I can see them reconciling, or I could see Avery with Stellan. Although we haven't seen enough of Avery and Stellan together for me to form much of an opinion on them as a couple, besides the fact that they have sparks! ...more

I enjoyed this more than part 1 and I would like to give it 4.5/5. I love how Domenico and Seth's relationship has grown. How I feel like they are now inseparable and forever, but Dom is still possessive and violent. I hope he never loses that. It gives their relationship an edge so that you can never quite relax. And in his own way, it shows how much he needs Seth.
Dom isn't going to use words to tell Seth how he feels. While Seth said the 'L' word near the beginning of this book, it took the whole book and a near-death experience for Dom to say it. Dom is more familiar with sex and violence and those are his best tools. Love doesn't change a man and I wouldn't want him to change.
I love the ending, as Dom puts everything on the line for Seth, leaving them in a very dangerous situation, and leaving Seth to take charge. I can't wait to read the next book and find out what happens next. The blurb says that Dom lost his memories after his injuries, and I am so looking forward to what happens when Dom meets Seth for the first time again. What will his reactions to him be this time? Will it be the same? How confused will he be about his feelings for his brother? I really hope that at some point he finds the pictures that he sewed into the lining of his coat. Perhaps that will be an eye opener for him. I expect to love it either way! ...more
I really loved this book, and probably would have given it 5-stars if not for the factThis review can also be found on my blog: A Match Made in Heaven
I really loved this book, and probably would have given it 5-stars if not for the fact that it was incomplete, and the fact that it pushed my limits a little too much.
I was in the mood for a dark romance, and that is most definitely what I got. This book is violent. And Dom is a monster, a passionate, obsessive monster. I love him. Seth is not what I expected. Despite the fact that he is muscular and physically larger than Dom, he seems so weak in comparison. Even though Seth does not fit into Dom's world at all and Dom cannot help but laugh at him and mock him sometimes for his foolishness, there are still things about Seth that Dom finds completely irresistible, and not just his body. It is such a strange dichotomy. Seth's incompetence makes him roll his eyes, but at the same time his dependence on Dom make his blood burn.
I find it surprising that neither of them fought their relationship harder. The hard life they are in has no room for weakness, and in the Villani family being gay is a death sentence. But they both just threw themselves into it and never looked back. And on top of all that, they seem to be half brothers, which is completely disgusting of course, but I am holding out hope for a City of Glass moment.
One of the things about this book that I had a problem with was that there was a little bit of menage and some light bondage. Menage is usually an immediate deal breaker for me. If I come across a menage scene I will close a book immediately and never open it again. But the scene started over half way through the book and I already completely loved Dom and Seth and just couldn't give up on them that easily. Plus I could tell that the other guy, Silvio, was not going to be a permanent addition. So I just had to grin and bear it. If they had actually had sex I would have skipped the scene, but luckily they just did other things. It still made me extremely uncomfortable though and I hated Silvio. I noticed that he has his own series, Dark Soul, but I will not be reading it.
And there was some light bondage that came right after, with just Dom and Seth. It also made me really uncomfortable because I didn't like the way that Seth became so submissive and said that he had been a good boy. It felt so demeaning, as if he was just a dog. The only time I like it when someone becomes submissive is if it is out of love. Like in the last sex scene of the book. It was beautiful. Although neither of them have even thought the world 'love' yet, it seemed to be screaming at them in that scene. Seth hates to bottom but he did it for Dom and told him it was only for him, no one else, because he was the only one good enough. Dom was so tender and it was amazing. Being submissive out of love and not being forced to give up something.
I am totally in love with Dom and Seth and their complicated, angst-filled relationship. I love Dom's love tinged with obsession, and Seth's love tinged with fear. I can't see how things will work out for them and I am so excited to read the next part of their story to see what will happen next, and what they will be willing to sacrifice to try to make it work. ...more

This book was very eventful. Several major events that I knew were coming finally happened in this book. And I was so happy to see Mat again. He was not in the last book at all, and it took half of this book before he showed up. But once he did, a lot happened. The story in Ebou Dar ended up being my favourite, from anyone's POV.
I was happy to finally meet Tuon and she was not what I expected. She is a strong woman, like all the others in this series, but she is so young. I am curious how that will effect things. Will it make her easier to handle or harder? The other women in this series are all difficult. We last saw her, Mat had just realized that she was the Daughter of the Nine Moons, so I don't really know what to expect. His initial reaction was strange.
And I still love Rand. As uncomfortable as his relationship with Min, Elayne, and Aviendha makes me, I try to just ignore it. He spends most of his time with Min anyway, who is my favourite of the three, so I try to not let it bother me, because I love Rand so much, as a character and a hero. He has been trough so much, and it all effects him so strongly. He does what he must even as each action makes another mark on his soul, and each death turns him a little more to stone. But the incredible thing is that he knows what it will do to him, and he does it anyway. He is sacrificing himself a little bit at a time, for the sake of the world. And so far it is working. He has done such incredible things, and I admire him so much. Mat is my book boyfriend of this series, but Rand is my hero.
After 9 books, this is still the most epic story I have ever read. I don't know when this series is suppose to start dragging, but I can't believe it will. I heard one reader say they stopped after book 10, so I suppose I will just have to wait and see. But I will not stop with only 4 books left. That would be incredibly lazy. I don't expect to ever stop loving this series, world, and characters, but I will finish this series either way....more
