This is the second installment in the Burdened series and this one is so much better. 
Tainted seems to flow better than the first book. The first was was beautifully written but this one is just amazing.
The first book was awesome but this one got much better. You get so many of your questions answered and problems are dealt with, especially that massive cliffhanger at the end of Burdened...Ann Peiri kept me wondering what would happened and I finally got my answers! This sequel was perfect to co

*NetGalley book review*

This is the second book in the Burdened series. I was lucky enough to snag both from NetGalley so I could continue reading on from the first book. This one was so much better. Ann's writing is beautiful in this second book and the continuing story just grabs you from the first page. Excellent read.

****Actual Rating 4.5 Stars****

I want to say thanks to Xpresso Book Tours and Netgalley for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review. This book is way better than the first one. I loved this book so much it was amazing. I need the third book now. As in the first book we follow Tracey more about her and the characters are in my review of the first book which will be linked below. This book had a fast start which was pleasantly surprising compared to the first. This was more deve

I should start off by saying that I received a free copy of this book from the author.

I became obsessed with this series halfway through the first book, Burdened. And as I stated in my review of that book, this one was also perfect. I can't get over how much and how hard I fell in love with Peiri Ann's writing.

The second installment of the series deals with some of the problems in the first novel, I won't get into details but it was so fulfilling! The cliffhanger from Burdened was dealt with,

I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Peiri Ann's first book in this series, Burdened, was a phenomenal paranormal read. Tainted definitely lived up to that standard and did not disappoint.
The main characters, Nathan and Tracey, continue in their newly found relationship. From Tracey's point of view, we experience every range of emotion possible, as their love is challenged. Many people and situations from the past and present threaten to disturb their

What can I say without giving anything away? This follow up to Burdened was fantastic. It lived up to the first and did not lose any of the series luster like so many follow up books in a series.

Tracey and Nathan continue their journey together as they deal with Roehl and family issues. Several family secrets are revealed and many relationships are put to the test.

We continue to follow Scott and Glenn with their rocky relationship as well as the three, Scott, Glenn and Tracey try to finish hig

This second novel was a bit better than the first. The sentence structures were a bit strange, as if the author wasn't comfortable using contractions, but once you get accustomed to that it was easy to move on.

These storeis are certainly busy! Lots of action going on, which meant I was never bored reading!

I really enjoyed the addition of Olar to the story, he brought some light-heartedness and humor to some stressful, dreary moments in the book. I've grown to really loathe Taylor, what a deceitf

Tainted by Ann Peiri

Independent reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.
This book is the second book in the Burdened Series. I was lucky enough to get free copy for an honest review. I have to say that I didn't think this book was as good as Burdened, I had high hope for it after reading and falling in love with the 1st book. I not saying is bad but somehow the story line lost something for me, maybe there where to many characters and too many abrupt endings. Nathan and Tracey stor

Peiri sure knows how to weave a tale full of suspense. I gained an attachment for the characters in Burdened, & reading Tainted gave me even more insight into who they are, as well as who they were. I rode an emotional roller coaster, holding on tight, white knuckling from the suspense. With each new page, I was sucked into more & more of the world of sephlems, anxious, yet also nervous and a bit scared to find out what would happen next. And I loved every emotional, heart racing minute ...more

I loved this book, I think Olar and Tracey where my favorite characters. I found the book hard to put down and I loved that the drama and action was never dull. The book was freaking awesome. I give it 5 stars. My only regret is that I did not read book 1 first, now I have to go find it and read it. The story line flowed really well and the relationships between each character has its own presence. I can't wait to find out what happens with Lunis!!!!! OMG this book was great!!!!

It's hard to review this book without giving too much away. This one was way better than Burdened and I was excited to see the story develop. I think the writing flowed a lot better in this second book. We get to see the problem with Roehl get resolved. There is also a lot more with Scott and Glen and the other members of Nathan's family.

I really can't wait to see where book 3 takes the story.

I understand why it was so slow for book one! This book was so intense! Glen and Scott had me in tears! That completely threw me! But where this ended has me wanting more!! Looking forward to book 3!
