Betrayal has forced us on the run. Evading the very man I considered my family, the organization I once considered good. In hiding, I need to master my new power and find peace with my bonded guardian--or risk exposure.

But my heart can't accept the events that led us here. I need answers. Closure.

I think it's time I break up with this series and move on. It's not doing anything for me anymore. I feel like these last two books were lacking in plot. Kit has little to no growth. She is whiny and irritating and all she does is think about sex, have sex, and she seriously needs to improve her vocabulary. I mean, I curse, but she takes it to another level.

I honestly don't see what all

I wanted to love this series. Now, I don't even know if I can like it. If you've gotten this far in the series then you'll what I'm talking about. I don't want to ruin this for anyone, so please don't read if you're not ready for spoilers. I'm going to put this in list form, because it helps me keep track of what I read and why. Also, I love lists.

Rating : 3 stars
2 stars + 1 star because i really liked the previous books

I'm disfigured, perpetually stuck in an eye-rolling expression.

You know I love this series. Tate James is doing an amazing job at quickly releasing interesting full length novels. It has steam, sass, hot guys, fun and action. Also romance, a tiger pet and two moody dragons. The dream.

But The Viper's Nest is a disappointment.

- 50% of sex, 50% of story. And by that, I mean 50%

This series is such a guilty pleasure! They're so addictive, but I have to admit the plot gets more and more ridiculous. I'm not feeling that cliffhanger ending at all!
Character wise, I loved this one! Huge progress is made with Vali and Wesley and Austin, but the others aren't ignored. She bonds more of them and I'm worried about how it gets worse each time-maybe she won't be able to bond them all? As long as that issue isn't solved by any of them dying, I'm okay! I'm surprised River still

Well shit! I don’t know why I do this to myself! I should just wait till this series is over because the cliffhangers are a bitch! But this was another amazing book by Tate and I can’t wait for the next one!
Huh…well now that it's over I'm just…disappointed. While stuff happened, like the car chase, magic training, multiple bondings, the story didn't really go anywhere. Kit got a whole bunch of new abilities, had a ton of sex, and got zero answers and quite a few new questions to add to the list. It was okay while I was reading but now that it's over, I'm just left wanting. And this one really isn't anywhere near as good as the first few, not as funny, not as clever, not as suspenseful or exciting. ...more

I didn't hate it and i didn't love it.

I know authors think having secrecy is a good plot twist, I find it a little annoying, at least this far into a series.

There was nothing overly exciting about this book but I enjoy the series so of course I will continue with the series.

Well I can definitelysay I did not see that one coming. The story line in these books are killing me with all these unanswered questionsI have. But in an oh so intriguing way! I cannot wait to see what happens next!

After successfully bonding with Austin, Kit is still learning how to deal with his powers and learn to balance the new powers of her dianoch. They are still on the run from Director Pierre and they don't have the answers that they need. As Kit and her dianoch become stronger, their enemies seem to become more numerous.

I am so invested in this series. Like I can't stop reading it. The only reason I pause between books is so I can try to write a coherent review about each installment. I don't

Okay I'm so loving this series so far and I have a few days to wait for book 5 to be release... ( so on the edge of my seat waiting for that book release)... However I'm kinda pissed at the damn cliffhanger at the end of this book... ... I seriously hate cliffhangers!!!!

Anyway, my overall rating:

This was probably my favorite book of the series so far. It had good pacing and the smut was top shelf lol! But seriously, there were some pretty hot scenes whew. I love that Kit has formed more bonds with her dianoch and they're getting along now. There was a lot of magic and abilities, fighting, cute parts, and smut and it was a fun read! I am so excited to get to the next book.

So... that just happened.
I'm actually at loss for words, not knowing what to say. You see, the majority of the book was really mellow, and not much was happening. Not to say that I was bored, not at all. After all, the writing was great and I love the characters, so every time we spend with them is a time spent great. But that also means that all the action was squeezed into the last fifty pages or so and now my head is spinning with everything that happened.

Second read and review July 2019

THIS SERIES! It absolutely kills me! I love it so much. The story continues to get better and better with each book.

Kit takes on more powers as she bonds with her guardians and she just continues to grow. She is a coffee fanatic and sometimes the coffee bits are a little obnixious. Lol. But she is so original. There hasn't been a character in a RH that I have liked/loved more than Kit.

This is definitely a favorite series of mine and I feel like I'd never tire of

I've been taking a short break and used that time to read other books but I'm finally back in this world and I love it. I don't have much to say except that I hate Jonathan and her mother. I really don't trust her or her intentions toward Kit and her guardians. Something's fishy, I'm telling you! The smut is always great and this book was no exception. In this book, Kit bonded with a few of them so that was cool. I'll be reading the next one soon. The Viper's nest ends up on a cliffhanger. I ...more

This has to be one of the most addicting series ever. I read all the books really close together, which I never do. I can't wait for the next one. Wesley is still my favorite, he gets a good amount of time in this book too! Austin is growing on me, and I still like all of the others. Cal is still my least favorite, even though he is sweet. There's a lot of mystery going on in this one, but I liked how the beginning of the book was them sort of taking some time off from trying to be killed.
3.5 stars

I really like this series; but this book feels like a "placeholder" or a stage-setter for the next book. Can't wait to read The Crow’s Murder!

I really liked this book. I had a lot of fun while reading this and there were times when I did not want to put it down.
The whole book was great until the end. The ending was a massive cliffhanger, that while not shocking, was very annoying. I am tired of Kit constantly falling into the kidnapping trope and with the resurrection of Simon's character, I honestly don't know if I want to continue this series anymore. Also, with the kidnapping trope, sexual
Kit and her guardians are on the run from a bunch of people that want to kill her or use her for her powers (including the Omega Group). While hiding out, Kit must learn to master the magic she gained from bonding with Austin before she takes on more bonds. Cole and Vali work on their dragon magic and try to repair their brotherly relationship. Wesley is still trying to figure out exactly what he is, and River is avoiding getting changed in the first place. Caleb is struggling not only with ...more

This series just gets more amazing with every book.

I don't mean to sound like a mindless fangirl, but this has the perfect balance of character development and storytelling mixed in with the sexy times.

Also, for the record, Austin was always my favorite.

This book in one sentence: In this paranormal soap opera, Kit's saga continues with more magic, more sex and more drama; will she make it one whole book without getting kidnapped?
My rating:
Would I recommend: At this point, I'm hooked on the series and will keep reading regardless, but some parts are pretty ridiculous. For example, even though she has heightened speed, strength and reflexes, she's somehow a complete ditzy klutz on ice skates? Why do I feel like Kit's character is

However, it has sex, sexual tension, people thinking about sex, people watching sex, people complaining they not getting enough sex. Oh and some plot. I don't mind steam in my novels, not at all, but this series set itself up for a really interesting plot, then isn't doing much with it.

Thank you Sharon J for recommending this series with me. This was an incredible read. Each book just keeps getting better and I love it. Also, I really love Kit Davenport and her attitude. It makes the story more enjoyable. Also, the chemistry that she has with the boys is undeniable. The story of this book was amazing. I did not want to let the book go, it was that good. The characters were well-written. Also, I can’t wait to see more of sexy scenes with the boys. The ending is making anxious ...more

“Why is Cole trying? He’s not the friendliest human we have.” Caleb rolled his eyes like the answer should have been obvious. “No, but he’s a reptile. Surely they can, like, recognize their own kind or something?” “Of course,” I snickered. “How silly of me. Do you want me to try? I actually like snakes. They’re cool creatures.” Caleb looked aghast. “Kitty Kat... they have no ears!” 0 likes
