Great addition to the series with an update on where Dragos and Pia are. Revelations of the prophecy that, Grace, as the Oracle, related in previous books come to fruition. The plot is action packed with Pia trying to repair Elven relations and landing herself in the middle of a war. Alliances are formed. Relationships begin to mend. New sentinels are chosen. Pia maintains her kick@$$ personality that won the big guy over. Dragos is actually growing and learning to be in a relationship where com ...more

Dragos and Pia - Part two

Real life will start after the HEA of Dragon Bound. Dragos and Pia are happily mated with little peanut on his way. But now it is also time to start behaving as a married couple i.e. communicate more, listen to each other more, take decisions together and report to their other half about their whereabouts.

Dragos needs to understand that Pia is his equal partner. So, when Pia wants to visit the Light Fae and re-establish the relations between the Wyr and the snotty E

LORD'S FALL brings readers back to the characters that started it all. Pia and Dragos have changed a little bit since Dragon Bound. Although Dragos continues to exude this otherworldly power and Pia still keeps him on his toes, they have grown and matured, developing into what resembles a married couple. Simply put, they have grown into each other, but that doesn't mean everything is perfect. LORD'S FALL explores the trials and tribulations that occur in every relationship. It covers the good an ...more

Another fantastic addition to the Elder Races series!!! I love Dragos and Pia and hope to see much more of them (view spoiler) in the next books!! It was great seeing all the characters from Dragon Bound and meeting many new and interesting characters, looking forward to seeing where Thea Harrison takes us next.

A solid 5 stars

When I found out Thea Harrison planned to revisit Pia and Dragos - the couple that started it all for 'Elder Races' fans - I'll admit to being disappointed. Don't get me wrong - I loved 'Dragon Bound' and Pia and Dragos top my list of best ER couples, BUT I like my HEA's to stay, well, HEA's. I do not like it when my fave duos start getting bogged down by relationship issues because more often than not it tends to ruin my perception of the original story. However, I (now) freely a

Pia's been invited to visit with the Elves and she's decided to go to smooth things over even though she had quite a bit of convincing to do with Dragos. Especially since he is unable to go as The Sentinel Games will be under way. Things become bit dicey when Pia gets there and once Dragos gets a hint of it, there is nothing that will stop him from getting to her.

Oh how I love Dragos and Pia...they are so wonderful together and I just could not get enough. I love that TH treated us to a

Good. Action, adventure, violence, and hanging with the snobby Elves. I enjoyed seeing how Dragos functioned away from Pia - not well, btw. There are several new characters introduced, both Wyr and Elven. The villain was insane, which is always admirable in villains. Sweet ending. Aryuel is still a crazy bitch, and that's not said with love; I'm not looking forward to that bad attitude bitch's book next. Boo.

3 1/2 stars. Romances that continue the story of established couples often don't work for me: either they have too little conflict between the adoring characters or they artificially create conflict in a way that stops the story dead in its tracks. Harrison strikes the right balance here. There's romance, there's some conflict, there's development of the relationship, but there's also a story and the elements are all nicely woven together.

★★★★☆ (This is a review of the audiobook.) I enjoyed the narrator, Sophie Eastlake, more this time around. She has improved. She used to be a little more “deadpan.” (At least I thought so for Serpent's Kiss.

What a wonderful addition to the "Elder Races" series!

Dragos and Pia are amazing together in their struggle to learn how to be partners, as well as being mates.

Really enjoyed the writing, story-line, and characters.

Can't wait for the next book in this series!!

Best epilogue ever!

But back to the rest of the book. More of Pia and Dragos. More details of how their mating is going and learning things they didn't know before.
Pia gains new allies and Dragos finds himself up to his neck in Elvin politics and ancient power run amok.
The story has a nice steady pace. Pia and Dragos spend a fair bit of the book apart with the chapters switching back and forth between them. But even when they are apart they have their ways of communicating and I was still highly

Pia & Dragos are one of my favorite couples in this series and I'm so glad Thea decided a revisit.

The book was good, in character for Thea. It was steamy in the right places, touching while describing the H/h realtionship & seeing them grow into each other, and it had a bit of action, as well.
It felt a bit anti-climatic and that's why I deducted a start but it was still a great book.

I am stuck on this because I think it encompasses Dragos so well.

Dragos waited a pulse beat. He said softly, “

I used to hate revisiting couples but now I absolutely love it. Here it is no different. We can’t see how Pia & Dragos are getting on what they have encountered as mates so far and what they face together as mates and EQUAL partners.

Ms. Harrison has created a great addition to the series and I enjoyed immense. There was action, banter and an awesome plot line. I love Dragos he is one of the best Hero’s ever. Pia is an equally kick arse although she is somewhat of a trouble magnet.

4.5 stars - With Pia on a diplomatic mission to repair the Wyr treaty with the elves, Dragos holding a colossal gladiator-like spectacle to replace his two missing sentinels, and the threat of whatever ill events that Dragos was warned of by the Oracle, there is an interesting framework for the story in Lord's Fall, but where the book really shines is in the relationships.

I loved getting to catch up with the starring pair of the original book and having the Pia and Dragos' initial bonding out of
4+ "Learning to be partners is hard work." Stars!

A good addition to the series. In this one Pia and Dragos must figure out how to be partners as well as mates and lovers. It really was a good look at how relationships take hard work and compromise to sustain for the long haul. I enjoyed spending more time with Pia and Dragos. What brought this one down for me just a bit was the conflict in this story was VERY depressing and sad. Very. But even with that, I still enjoyed the story very much becau

This was an enjoyable story bringing us back to Pia and Dragos. I liked that it did not focus on some crisis of their relationship but focused on Pia branching out to try and be a diplomat for the Wyrkind and Dragos trying to relax and just let her do her thing.

Pia is specifically trying to mend relationships between the elves and Wyr - Dragos has been hostile towards them for a long time and when he passed their borders in the original book with Pia and Dragos it led to trade sanctions against

Pia is still trying to find her way in this world led by Dragos. Many of those within Cuelebre Enterprises don’t like her and she wants to be a part of things. She’s convinced Dragos to let her travel to visit with the Elves in the hopes of repairing some of the damage Dragos caused months earlier when he broke treaties with the Elves to rescue Pia. She wants to help, so she’s traveling with a bodyguard entourage to visit the Elves while Dragos
Lord's Fall is book 5 in Thea Harrison’s Elder Races series. Originally, I had no intention of reading this, but after enjoying Pia Saves the Day, I decided to give it a shot.

Newly mated couple, Pia and Dragos must divide and conquer if they hope to make amends with the elves and find two replacement sentinels for the Wyr demesne. Since Dragos is the reason for the elves hostility, it's Pia who takes on the peace mission. Issues arise when someone gets their hands on a god machine and goes on a

I loved going back to Dragos and Pia. Pia is pregnant and about to go to repair one of the relationships with Dragos broke while chasing her while Dragos is organizing the Sentinel Games, having lost Rune and Tiago. I would have wished to see more of the games though Pia's friend Quentin was a surprise. I loved seeing Pia and Dragos navigate their relationship since it was unequal, Dragos was dirt old and set in his ways while Pia was used to her independence and not really accep

This review is for the audio version. I just love this series. I enjoyed the audiobook for Lord's Fall, even more than the paperback. I think that is due to Sophie Eastlake's narration. The personalities of the characters comes through so much better. I particularly loved Eva, the snarky, hard-ass bodyguard who gives Pia such a hard time in the beginning but comes around to being a loyal and devoted protector.

Loved the teaser chapter for Lords Fall at the end of Oracles Moon (which was a fantastic book and is up there with Dragon Bound as my favorite)... can't wait to meet Peanut (even if it will take him 2 years - OMG - to arrive, poor Pia, that is one heck of a long gestation!).

Lord’s Fall is the fifth book in Thea Harrison’s Elder Races series. I love this series. I love that Thea doesn’t only focus on your ‘usual’ paranormal creatures but also includes many characters that you don’t normally see in a paranormal romance series. Not only that but Thea’s voice really works for the genre and her characters are fabulous.

I adored Dragon Bound so I was really hoping that this revisiting of Pia & Dragos would be just as good, especially since the last few installments of this series have been mediocre at best. I wasn't disappointed. The same irrepressible Dragos, the same loveable Pia, and some new characters I came to love all wrapped up in a 250 page package.

Since there are so many other reviews already, I'll just tell you what I loved and didn't love:

O-M-G, loved this book so much. This is one of only about four five star books for me this year, and this one is five star all the way. I’m not much of a fan of paranormal romance, not because I have anything against it, but just because it doesn’t usually interest me. But, these Elder Races books really are just pure magic, they have pulled me in absolutely, both the full length novels and the novellas. These novellas are a brilliant idea, keeping me in this world while I’m waiting for the full ...more

He pulled her hands down. “We’re never going to stop talking about it. That penny is one of my favorite memories.”

Her mouth dropped open. “Liar! You only liked what came afterward. You hated having your penny stolen.”

“True,” he admitted. “But I loved the note you left me.”
“How was your day?” she whispered.

“It went as expected,” he said. “Mostly. No one died. All of the sentinels went through to the next round, but then nobody believed anything different would occur. Graydon—” His gold eyes danced suddenly. “You know what a big motherfucker Graydon is. He turned into a gryphon, and then he just sat down and looked at his opponent, who forfeited. It was the fastest bout of the day.”
