4.5 ‘My Morning Star’ Stars
Awww, how I missed Katie Reus Darkness world!!! These dragons just can be beat and Lachlan is THE dragon! What an amazing come back to one of my fav PNR universes!
To say I was excited for the spin off series would be an understatement because I was dying for this. And the wait and anticipation were so worth because Lachlan and Star are the perfect couple to kick off this new adventure.
Smoldering? That was a thing, right? Because he had it in spades.
“What happens if she doesn’t agree to go with you?” King asked.
“Then in a week and a half, I shall kidnap her.”
An what a journey it is, there is no slow build in this one, we jump right in into some kickass action! The opening scene snags us right in and I couldn’t stop reading in after that start. I absolutely adore the way we where presented to this new gang of supernaturals and I’m also beyond psyched to see again some of my fav Darkness peeps, like Cynara.
Lachlan and Star, are the definition of fated mated, and if you follow my reviews you know that is my favorite trope, so these two couldn’t have been more amazing and perfect together. Both are so complex and passionate, loyal and strong, a true pairing of Alphas, and a match made in Heaven. Lachlan was the epitome of Alpha, in all his OTT protective and possessive deliciousness, and I adore every second of it, specially how unapologetic he was about how he felt for her, so swoon worthy!
“The skies are free. If you want to follow after me, be my guest.”
“I will.” His dragon would follow her to the ends of the earth.
“I can carry you in my claws or you can ride on my back. Either way is acceptable.”
“Your back it is.”
“For the record, I would like you to ride me in other ways while we are both naked and—”
He was glad she hadn’t known how to ride him. It meant that she had not flown with a dragon before. He would be her first. He also wanted to be her last.
I don’t know how Ms. Reus does it, but I’m always in awe at the incredibly realistic – even in its supernatural nature – world building and enticing characters. Badass action scenes set in an enrapturing adventure, hilarious banter, deliciously smoldering chemistry in all the couple interactions, as well as smoking hot sexy times, all this topping of an epic love story.
Every single time without fail, and Ancient Protector is the example, I’m not only completely immersed in the main couple’s love story, but also craving to know about every single one of the side characters, as well as rooting that we’ll see their own tales. Yep, this series is already utterly and deeply addictive, and I’m so here for it. That’s right, not only do I want the rest of the dragon’s story, but I NEED Aurora and King’s story ASAP!!! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
I dinnae care what you are. You’re mine, love. That’s all that matters.”
He was…he was her dragon. Always had been, always would be.
“There will never be another for me.”
“There will never be another for me either,”
