I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

If ever there was a fast paced story, Everwylde was it. Donna Grant’s ability to weave a story full of magic was gripping and exciting.

Insta-love and insta-attraction to the max!

Normally, I am not a fan of insta anything. I find it to be quite unbelievable and rushed. But for some reason Ravyn’s and Cerac’s fast love totally made sense to me. With their world full of magic and

Once again, just a joy to be thrust back to the middle ages with withes and warlocks and witch hunters. Raven and Carac were perfect for each other and made a great team. Loved all the twists and turns.

Looking forward to the next book!
Donna Grant is one of my favorite Paranormal Romance authors and she has just wrapped herself a little more tightly around my heart with her Kindred books. I love this world of witches and hunters, the magic that Donna weaves, the world she has created, and the characters that she gives us. I love how strong her characters are, both male and female, especially the females. I adore that she is writing these strong women who know exactly what they want and are not afraid to get it, who are not afr ...more
AudioBook Review:
Stars: Overall: 4 Narration: 3 Story: 4

My first introduction to this series and world, Grant managed to present a story reminiscent of King Arthur with plenty of magical elements, destined love and plenty of dangers to overcome in this book. Raven is a witch-hunter, raised to seek out the danger from witches, and determined to exact her revenge against those who took everything, including her family, from her. As a character, Raven was strong willed and fierce, and her impulsiv

The second book in The Kindred series is an exhilarating thrill of a read. Ravyn and Carac stand out as vivid characters with strong wills and a desire to put an end to evil. Their romance is sweet and passionate but the relationship has a few obstacles that must be overcome and secrets have to be revealed which keeps suspense building throughout. Readers can easily understand where the characters are coming from and easily connect to Ravyn and Carac which keeps them glued to the pages.

These books are a bit different but I am liking them quite a bit. It takes a chapter or two to figure out what is going on but then your in for a wild ride. Give it a try if you like strong heroines.
Ravyn is one of the hunters like Leoma from the first book. She is after a witch with blonde hair that killed her whole family when she was four.
Carac is the leader of a group of mercenary fighters. He was hired by Sir John to fight in a battle with his neighbor over land. But something strange happe

Series: The Kindred #2
Rating: 3 stars - I liked it

Ravyn was taken in as a child by the witch Hunters and raised to hunt witches. When she finds out the witch who killed her family is nearby she brings her hunt. What she doesn’t expect is to fall for a gorgeous and powerful man or to find another first witch artifact.

Ravyn was a formable witch hunter. She was impulsive and fierce in battle which made her unpredictable. Carac is a seasoned warrior who leads an army of men. Everything changes when

Everwylde is an action packed, historical/paranormal romance worthy of 4.5 stars. Ravyn is such a strong warrior and unconventional female while Carac is a brave and loyal knight. These characters rock. The action is strong, the love story is sweet, and the bad guys evil for a truly emotional and compelling plot. The Coven are a band of bad witches trying to take over the world with powerful talismans made from the very first witch's bones. The Varroki (good witches) and the Hunters are trying t ...more

The Hunter finds her Knight

A great story with a strong heroine. Ravyn is beautiful, intelligent, highly trained and on a mission to avenge her family, as well as rid The Coven of one more witch. Carac is a battle hardened knight who might be working with The Coven and helping the witch who murdered her family. A suspenseful story that follows Ravyn and Carac as they confront their enemies and their attraction on their quest to protect the relic of the First Witch. Will they succeed or will treac

I love Ravyn's character, again an orphan raised to be a Hunter meets Sir Carac who again has been caught up in the battle of good vs. evil witches. The overall story continues as the Hunters now learn about another group and try to thwart the efforts of the evil Coven. Carac is brilliant commander of his own army, who are swords for hire at times. Carac comes to the aid of an old friend or so he thinks, he soon figures out that there are more things at work and wants to leave all of this behind ...more

I enjoyed this book but it didn't suck me in. It wasn't until I hit the climax of the book that I felt like I couldn't put it down. Though I love everything that Donna Grant puts out this one just wasn't there for me 100%. It is well written and has a fantastic heroine who shows that she isn't afraid to take on any man and we continue to see the other fierce heroines as well. I'm excited for the next book and I just hope that it reads a bit quicker. ...more

Solid offering from Grant. I'm enjoying the premise of the story although, at first (in the first book and this) I was a little resistant to the wicked witch stereotype that appeared to be starting, but Grant walked the balance on that nicely -- and in this second book, offered a perspective from one of the "wicked" witches that made it clear they weren't just evil for evil's sake (at least not entirely).

I think I prefer her Dragon novels, but will definitely read more of this series as well.

Exciting adventure in a world of magic

Her search brings her to a battle being waged, whispers of a witch and a man that makes her heart pound and want things set never has before. Together they will fight to keep the next relic out of the covens hands and protect the world from them, at all costs.

Wow, I really enjoyed Everwylde!
I was initially was skeptical to start reading this as I had started reading Everkin (book 1) and found it to be too slow for my liking so I did not finish.
Right from the start Everwylde had me captured! I look forward to reading Everkin now and learning of Leoma’s story.

This is shaping to be another great series by Donna Grant.

3 1/2 stars

I enjoyed Everwylde much more than the first book in the series. Ravyn and Carac were interesting characters right from the beginning. About 3/4 into the book, the story started to drag and things played out for way too long. It probably could of been an easy 4 or 5 star read if it was 50 pages shorter.

A great follow on from book one.
The adventures of Ravyn and Carac were great, as the battle to uncover more deceits by the Coven. I also enjoyed their love story. I enjoy this series because of the witches and warlocks, the types of characters are enjoyable to read as well as the storyline.
I look forward to book three.

Love this series!

Hunters, witches warlockes, magic and knights! What more could a gal wish for! Me Donna sucks you in from the first page and then the adventure begins. Strong women and gorgeous fighting knights fall in love while trying to destroy. This series is not to be missed.

Join the fight

Another great book in this series. This is Ravyn's story. She of course is another kick-butt Hunter. Along the way she meet Carac, an equal in everyway. The bad witches need to go and it's a good thing more fighters are helping.

I loved this book. Donna Grant created a strong female main character and gave her a perfect male counterpart in Everwylde. Their was so much action in this book that once I started the book I couldn’t put it down.

Great read!

Quite the twisted story. Death. Torture. Witches. Covens. Warlocks. Familiars. Ghosts. Rayven and Carac don’t stand a chance. Or do they? Do they get their HEA?
