Kresley Cole: Dark Skye

I’m late. 🙂

I already forgot what I read as I read it straight away when the book came out (August 5) and well, life took its course so I’m writing about it now. Although, really, what more can be said about Kresley Cole’s IAD series that hasn’t already been said? Start reading if you haven’t already.

ETERNAL OBSESSIONdark-skye1

As a boy, Thronos, prince of Skye Hall, loved Lanthe, a mischievous Sorceri girl who made him question everything about his Vrekener clan. But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies. Though centuries have passed, nothing can cool his seething need for the beautiful enchantress who scarred his body—and left an even deeper impression on his soul.

ENDLESS YEARNING

Lanthe, a once-formidable sorceress struggling to reclaim her gifts, searches for love and acceptance with all the wrong immortal suitors. But she’s never forgotten Thronos, the magnificent silver-eyed boy who protected her until she was ripped from the shelter of his arms. One harrowing night changed everything between them. Now he’s a notorious warlord with a blood vendetta against Lanthe, hunting her relentlessly.

CAN THE HEAT OF DESIRE BURN BRIGHTER THAN VENGEANCE?

With their families locked in conflict and battles raging all around them, will Thronos and Lanthe succumb to the brutal chaos that threatens everything they cherish? Or will the fragile bond they formed so long ago spark a passion strong enough to withstand even the darkest doubts?

Well, the best parts for me were the fact that Ms Cole quite successfully managed to insert pointers on what slut shaming is and how to deal with it. (yeah, wouldn’t expect that in a novel of this type, huh?)

And that we learn what awaits Nix in the future. 🙂 I can’t wait to learn who her partner will be… Maybe some people guessed it but I have no idea. Basically, I can’t wait for her book.

Which has nothing to do with this one. 😉

But as you could guess, Lanthe and Thronos work everything out in the end, through some amazingly hot scenes (not that much actual sex 😉 – amazing actually) and very difficult personal experiences (ha, that came at an opportune moment for me). I practically inhaled it, like every other Kresley Cole book out there…

Dana Cameron: Seven Kinds of Hell

If you’re interested in archaeological,supernatural, crime, action packed romp, well you found your series. 😀

Yep, series. 😉seven

Although, I should say here that the story is rounded off for this book quite well.

“Archaeologist Zoe Miller has been running from a haunting secret her whole life. But when her cousin is abducted by a vicious Russian kidnapper, Zoe is left with only one option: to reveal herself.

Unknown to even her closest friends, Zoe is not entirely human. She’s a werewolf and a daughter of the “Fangborn,” a secretive race of werewolves, vampires, and oracles embroiled in an ancient war against evil.

To rescue her cousin, Zoe will be forced to renew family ties and pit her own supernatural abilities against the dark and nefarious foe. The hunt brings Zoe to the edge of her limits, and with the fate of humanity and the Fangborn in the balance, life will be decided by an artifact of world-ending power.”

I really liked Zoe because she tried to control her “beast” for quite a number of years before actually learning what she was and succeeding in it quite well.

As you start learning about what is happening to her, it becomes obvious she is not the regular Fangborn (seems both her parents are special).

One of the greatest things about this novel is that each time I thought this better be explained later because it makes no sense at the moment, it was. That was such a relief. As readers are slowly introduced into the story and many things are not obvious from the start.

One thing readers of paranormal novels should bear in mind is that these paranormal creatures are a bit different than what is “standard” in these novels. Which is always a benefit in my mind. 🙂 Especially the part where the Fangborn feel this incredible need to fight against evil.

The other thing I absolutely loved in the book is so many little life truths hidden in the story. If you’re not paying attention, you just might miss them.

Then there are some “Lara Croft” moments but I didn’t mind them, it fit with the story.

So basically like I said, a supernatural, archaeological romp. Fun! 🙂
