 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)
This was my favorite in the Valorian Chronicles series, probably because I thought that Lyra and Theron had a close connection that drove the book. I have found that these Nocturnes are just too short. There is not enough room to get anything accomplished, so the storyline can be a bit rushed. I didn't find it quite as noticable in this book, but I do feel like it could have delved deeper if the book could have been about 75-100 pages longer. But for a shorter book, it was very good. I like anti ...more

I loved the sexual tension between our antihero, Theron, the half-vampire, half- witch and our cop heroine, Lyra, the white witch. Lyra is also a virgin so she is leery of Theron but the sparks are definitely there. Years ago, Theron dabbled in dark magic which he fears will keep Lyra from falling for him so he hides this fact for as long as he can. Unfortunately, Theron knows some of the key players in the murder investigation and they tip his hand. The murders are gruesome but the author does ...more

I've been reading this series completely out of order. This is my first read into the Valerian chronicles. But hey, I really enjoyed it. Theron and Lyra (unfortunately I keep thinking of His Dark Materials, but I digress...) have genuinely steamy chemistry. But yes, like Danielle said, it is too short, but for that short period of time, I was quite immersed in this world of forensics and the supernatural. It's definitely an interesting twist on the paranormal 'genre'. Now I'll have to back track ...more

I am really loving this series and author. I love the way she spins a story. Although I enjoyed this one, I was a little disappointed with Lyra's stubborness and attitude. It started grating on my nerves. I did like Theron and his protectiveness of her. I just thought Lyra's attitude was a bit overboard. I did like the story and how the mystery was finally solved. I have been hooked to this series from the beginning.

Another awesome book in the Valorian Chronicles/Otherworld Crime Unit! This time it is Lyra Magice and Dhampir Theron LeNoir who are featured in this book. Lyra needs Therons help with a spell and he agrees to help her if he can work with her. Unfortunately he discovers that its Lyra who is needed to complete the spell and be the virgin sacrifice to open Hell's Door. Steamy and HAWT discribe this book. Loved it!!

I didn't enjoy the last installment of the Valorian Chronicles as well as I did the first two - even though the series came to a conclusion with the capture of the serial killer, I had a difficult time with the two main characters, Lyra and Theron. It wasn't that he was French, or that she reminded me of a new age hippie. I just didn't feel them. Despite these qualms, I enjoyed the series and am glad to have read it.

This book was actually pretty good. The plot kept me interested and the leads were well written. I was able to get lost in the story and enjoy it. Not the best vamp. book I've ever read but it's up there.

This is a continuations of a series (within a series - Silhouette nocturne). The first one was great, second - not so bad. This one is the least interesting of the 3. But still enjoyable.

Well worth the wait. Lyra and Theron's story is full of danger and secrets.
