Oh no. I have reached the end of the Svatura series with Black Orchid, Book IV, by Abigail Owen. What a fabulous road we have traveled and I can hardly wait to read more of work.

Black Orchid picks up where Crimson Dahlia left off, so you will want to read these in order.

Adelaide Jenner has lost her love, her te’sorthene, which can drive her mad, and she has become a danger to them all.

Nate, poor Nate, her lost love. He doesn’t even know how messed up his life is, though flashes blink in and out
A nivel general esta serie realmente me gusto, en cuanto a cambia formas es realmente difícil encontrar libros sobre dragones, la trampa acá es que no son cambia formas o magos o brujos, realmente no son nada de lo que uno esta acostumbrado cuando lee un libro sobre seres mágicos y eso fue súper refrescante y atrayente.

Mi problema el final de la serie se supone que con este libro termina toda la historia, pero no tenemos un EPILOGO vamos esta parte no es solo una invención es una forma en la que

Good solid ending to a very entertaining series!

On my blog,All in One Place, I gave Black Orchid 6 stars!!!!
I first fell in love with the Svatura nearly two years ago when I was lucky enough to review Blue Violet. Since then I have excitedly waited the release of the next in the series and as I finished Black orchid I was left with a sense of loss, like saying goodbye to old friends.
Abigail Owen has created the four books in this series with consistent brilliance, continuing the theme but still with unique and touching stories. I sat down to

PERFECT ending to a great series..

Once I opened this book, I did not want to close it. It was an emotional read. Imagine losing the love of your life to another. Not just having your heart broken, but ripped in half. A pain so devastating you don't want to live. This is what happens to Adelaide. To help her, Lilia turns off her emotions. When this becomes too dangerous, Lilia and the rest of the gang wipe her memory completely of Nate. I won't tell you anymore in case I give away too much. But

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I am always leery of reading a book that is part of a series I haven't read before. This is one of the few books that can ALMOST be read as a stand-alone. There was a bunch of things, especially in the beginning of the book that I couldn't grasp. However, the author described the world and abilities so well, that I could read the book without being completely lost.
I found the author wrote so well, that not only was I not lost in the

What a great ending to the series. I fell in love with Nate and Adelaide in book one and have been waiting a long time to read their story. To watch two people find love again after, everything they had gone through was awesome. Sad to see the end, but looking forward to reading more in Shadow Cat Nation series from this author Abigail Owen's. Great job!
SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOW! :O I'm at a loss of words now...

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

The last installment of Miss Owen's Svatura series was full of twists. I think I even experienced more emotions than Adelaide did throughout the book (and trust me, she goes through a LOT)!

It was nice to finally get to know Adelaide and Nate more. In previous books, they have served as more quiet, reserved characters. Who knew Adelaide had such an attitude...or that Nate loved The Princess Bride so much (who can blame him; it's a

Moving reunion romance and excellent final book in the paranormal Svatura series

If you have read the previous books in this excellent paranormal series--and it is essential that you do before reading this book--you already know there were two main relationships from previous books that had huge romantic conflicts remaining to be resolved, Adelaide and her husband and te'sorthene (soulmate) Nate, as well as Griffin and Selene, who are also each other's te'sorthene. This book very satisfactorily r

First I would like to state that I received this book through the Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank the author for giving me this opportunity and honor in being able to read this book. When I received this book I began reading it at once. I really enjoy the authors writing style. I enjoyed the characters in the book and the plot was interesting, I do think that reading the other books in this series before this one would have shed a bit more light on what ...more

Excellent, fast-paced story; very hard to put down! Even being 4th in a series, it was a complete story on its own. Now, I'll have to read the first three books as well.
