I have to say Evangeline Anderson should have subtitled this book the Periles of Pauline (or Lauren as it were)....Once again Evangeline Anderson has "Found" another hit in her slightly wacky, sci-fi/futuristic erotic romance series. As a self admitted non-fan of futuristic novels, I was very pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable this series is. It contains the requisite hot, alpha male hero(es) and strong, feisty heroine. The relationship between Lauren Jakes and Xairn is intense, at times sappy in it's lovey sweetness and frustrating at times with Xairn's denial of his true Scurge Dominant self. You have to love Lauren's strength and fortitude - she overcomes kidnapping, torture, falling for the son of the evil AllFather, escape, near re-capture and sale into sexual slavery, DNA alteration, having body parts removed and return to Earth only to battle her love's deep seated fear of exercising his Dominant sexual self and refusal to take their relationship to the next level! Xairn even gets creative in his desire to switch roles and make Lauren the Dom in an effort to consummate their relationship!
Sexy, tantalizing love scenes, with just enough kink to flip anyone's switch pepper throughout the story but Anderson teases both her poor Lauren as well as the reader by making them wait through a large portion of this story to get to some truly hot lovin! The sex is actually integral to the plot in that Xairn is coming into his great powers and also redefining his life as a Scourge who sheds some, but not all, of his upbringing and genetic makeup as well as his truly evil overlord father.

Some of the best parts of this story bring back former characters and the way Anderson builds on the previous story arcs really fleshes out the world and makes it feel like an ongoing saga. Deep and Lock finally get the super hot menage loving with Kat long awaited from book 3 and Sylvan's wedding "luck kiss" between Nadiah and Rast is smokin hot....totally makes up for the slightly anti-climatic final battle with the AllFather.

I highly recommend Found and the Brides of the Kindred series to anyone who is not familiar with Evangeline Anderson's work. Her stories are amazing and definitely addicting!! Please do take Tyra's advice and read IN ORDER. If you jump into one of the later books such as Sought or Found without the lead in, you will be completely lost for quite some time.
