My favorite book of the series!! Michelle Dare's books have a way of sucking you into the story, I almost felt like I was a part of it. There's alot of passion and emotion. I laughed, I cried, I may have screamed at the pages a couple of times. It's a brilliantly written story that will captivate the reader from the beginning.

This book was given to me at my request and I provided this review voluntarily

Elliott Azure is a powerful Knight and also a Prince, son of the King of Azure. He has been asked by his father to go on a secret mission to The Fuchsia Lakes to help protect the Queen from an unknown person who is killing her soldiers and is killing one of her magical lakes.

Queen Karis Fuchsia became queen at 23 when her parents were killed and now at 27 she may be up against her toughest opponent, an unknown person who can get into her kingdom. She has a special "friendship" with Devon, the he

These books are such a break from traditional for me that I am always so excited to read and get transported into a whole other world, with so many realms. These books keep you on your toes everything is so magical and beautiful and different, to be in this authors head has to be amazing. This is the third book and we get Elliot's story. He is a Prince from the Azure Kingdom, his sister and brother found their fated in the first and second books. Elliot was always quiet and more subdued compared ...more

This book is third in The Iridescent Realm series and I can attest that each book stands alone, because this is first one I've read and I never felt this story suffered from not having read them, yet. I could tell there were other stories with Elliot's siblings and I'm going enjoy catching up with the rest of the family. It's told from both Prince Elliot and Queen Karis pov which gives access into their private thoughts.

I don't normally read fantasy. I'm glad I stepped beyond my comfort and into

I have enjoyed reading the previous books in this series and enjoyed this one as well.
Michelle has created a wonderful world of fantasy and magic that draws you in and where you can picture its beauty.

Elliot Azure has been sent to protect Queen Karis and her kingdom and discover who is trying to cause her harm. Emotions run amok in this story and the chemistry between Karis and Elliot is hot. He did come off as spoiled and difficult in the beginning, but he starts to come down from his cloud whe

The third book in the Iridescent Series can be read as a standalone, however, I recommend starting with the first one to get everything right.
I didn’t like Elliott at all. In my opinion he’s a stubborn, spoiled child that throws a pouting fit every time he doesn’t get what he wants. Karis saved the book for me. Honestly I almost wished, she would have chosen someone else, but alas, it worked out in the end.

This is the third book in the Iridescent Realm series and I am in love! I am a huge personal fan of great paranormal romance stories and this is one of the best I've had the pleasure of reading in a while! This can be read as a standalone since I haven't read the first two books and was fine reading this. I loved the intense, off the charts chemistry between Elliott and Karis and literally couldn't get enough of them! This author has a way of creating a magical world filled with wonder that make ...more

In the Azure Kingdom, we meet Prince Luke and Alison. In The Pine Forest, we meet Princess Alison and Oliver. This time around, we meet Prince Elliott and Karis, Queen of Fuchsia realm. You get a very brief glimpse of these two in Princess Alison’s and Oliver’s story. It was very brief, but quite enough to set up this story.

There is a traitor in the midst of the Fuchsia realm. There are magical lakes with healing powers. One of the lakes is dying, with no way of saving it. Queen Karis needs the

Let me start out by saying I'm not a fan of paranormal at all. However, Michelle Dare has such a way of pulling me into her stories, and I've become a huge fan of this series!! Each story had me falling in love with not only the men, but the females and even Obsidian, Tali, and Storm!!

Each story has couples that you just know belong together even though they fight it at the beginning. I found myself cheering on the developing relationships, nail biting for the dangers that come to the kingdoms

I just love this series! When Karis asks the king of the Azure kingdom for his help he sends his son Elliot who is a member of the Elite and one of their best fighters. Something is going on in the Fushsia Lakes kingdom and Karis is the queen but she can’t stop the one lake from dying along with some people so she is beginning to fear for her life. Elliot has felt a connection with Karis since she came to the Azure kingdom for an engagement party but when they touch the connection goes much deep ...more

I love Michelle Dare and the world she created in The Iridescent Realm series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading each book in order as some of the storylines flow through.
The Fuchsia Lakes doesn't disappoint. This is Elliott and Karis's story. They are strong characters. You will get sucked into their world and lives. Their chemistry is HOT and they can't keep their hands off each other. But they need to work together to save the Fuchsia Lakes Kingdom.

I fall in love with every couple in this series and this book was no exception. Elliott and Karis are made for one another. Elliott is a solder. Karis is a Queen who needs protection. When the two of them connect, sparks fly both in and out of the bedroom. This story will take you on a journey of emotions and the connections between all of the characters is thoroughly conveyed. You will have to read this story to see if the Elliott and Karis can get their HEA above their obligations. I loved it. ...more

Absolutely love this series. Every time I read this series, it makes me wish I was there. Elliot & Karis will have you rooting for them and enjoying every minute that they are together. This book has everything, mystery, revenge, loss and of course love. Another amazing read that I didn’t want too put down and I can’t wait for Ryland’s book.

Why hello Elliott! I have been intrigued by Elliott from the start. He was a lot harder than any of the other Azure boys and seeing him crumble for a woman was utterly brilliant. Karis is a strong but also vulnerable queen. Not just in power but also emotional. I love how these two play off of each other. Their passion is very evident as their chemistry sizzled from their first meeting, but when Elliott is sent to her kingdom, all bets were off. As they navigate through everything that troubles ...more

I’m in love with all the Kings, Queens, Princes, Princesses, healers, seers and everything in between in this Iridescent Realm. This book was no different.

I’ve been wanting Elliott Azure’s story from book one. He’s the angry, hot headed prince from the Azure family. ESP when his sister married Oliver Sage from the Pine Forrest. I knew when he met Queen Karis he was going to hopefully soften a bit.

Ever since Elliott met Karis the Queen from Fuchsia she’s all he

Have You Heard? Book Blog's Review of Fuchsia Lakes by Michelle Dare:

Fuchsia Lakes by Michelle Dare is book three in a three-part, fantasy series. I haven’t read the previous two stories (YET!), but I had no trouble whatsoever following along in book three as a stand-alone. Fuchsia Lakes is a fairy tale of the finest caliber. Set in medieval times with a few modern nuances thrown in, it’s a true love story with every ingredient set to ensure you have a wonderful journey on your weekend escape wi

It has been a while since the last installment of the The Iridescent Realm series, so when I got ahold of book 3, The Fuchsia Lakes (The Iridescent Realm #3) I was excited to go back and refresh my memory on the series and where it left off. Although this book as well as the first two can be read as standalones, they are much more fun to read as a series. This is fantasy and not my typical genre I favor, but this series is so different that it’s fun to read!

The fuchsia lakes are described in such a way that made me feel like I was there, mesmerized by the colour of the water and wishing that were real. Besides the beaty of the landscape, we get to see hothead Elliott fall head over heels, discover a new shared ability with his soulmate Karis Fuchsia and stick his foot in his mouth, like usual. Karis herself is a powerful magic wielder and more than able to defend herself, but sometimes you need to trust others to take care of you, there is such a t ...more

This series just seems to get better and better as we delve into it and once again book 3 is better than book 2 which I enjoyed more than book1, don't know if I am loving the world more or wether the author is getting more immersed in her world as she writes but it definitely getting better with each book

We have met Elliott Azure in the previous book he is the hot tempered prince of the Azure realm but he has been attracted to Karis the Fuschia Queen ever since he met her at his sister's wedding

Karis Fuchsia feels the weight of running her kingdom now more than ever. With someone threatening her life and those of the ones entrusted into her protection, she has no other option than to ask for help from the Azzure Kingdom.

Elliott Azzure isn’t looking forward to traveling to the Fuchsia Kingdom though the prospect of spending time with the beautiful queen is greatly enticing. Meeting her at his sister’s wedding, has left a memorable impression on him.
