Read in April, 2012

This story was just as engrossing as the previous two. There is once more that perfect mix of the larger, on-going plot that follows through each story and then the individual tale of Breedmale warriors in each book.

The story of The Breed, The Order, The Ancients, The Rogues and the fight to protect humanity runs through each book. The action is fast, fierce, bloody and sometimes devastating when people lose loved ones. The Warriors are fierce Breedmales. Their reputation has been built upon and despite the good that they do, the self-sacrifice and honour … they are regarded with suspicion and caution. They are huge, gorgeous, sexy and wild. Dangerous, passionate and every inch the dominating male.

Tegan is a consummate Warrior. He is also a loner. A powerful Gen One. Even his comrades treat him with caution and respect. He loved once, only to have his mate tortured and raped. She’d been brutally treated and returned fit only for a merciful death. He’d vowed never to give his heart again.

Elise is also a shell of her previous self. She has led a protected and sheltered life in the Darkhavens, mixing only with the most refined and genteel of her kind. However, the death of her mate and then her teenage son, has left her reeling and looking for revenge.

Tegan and Elise have both loved and lost. Both on a mission to rid the world of rogues and minions. Both trying desperately to protect their hearts from any more pain.

Perfect for each other!

I found Tegan a really attractive character. He was like a wounded lion, roaring at anyone that got too close. He was part of the Order and yet not a cohesive unit like the others. He was too afraid to form any kind of relationship, even friendship. His emotional protective walls had been carefully constructed over centuries. He was a dangerous, avenging angel, swooping down on evil and leaving ash in his wake. A hard, invincible shell wrapped in a gorgeous package and with a well-hidden, tender, kind heart. What woman could resist that?

This is a wonderful series and I look forward to reading the next book.
