Slade Saeter endured centuries of torture, longing for the day he could claim Magnus Tate and Sylvia Grimm as mates. Now that he’s free he’s ready to begin the life he never thought he would have, and with Magnus securely snuggled at his side, he just needs to get Sylvia on board. The problem is that while Sylvia has long since healed from her ex-husband’s betrayals, accepting her own stepson as a bonded mate is something she’s having trouble with. What they need is time, but with danger banging on their condo, time might just be the one thing they don’t have.
What I thought:
I love Dana Marie Bell, the woman has a twisted mind that keeps me in a constant state of “cold shower” and “laugh till you cry”. Every book she writes is worth reading and I really do love that she can create such diverse and different worlds, full of amazing characters and fun stories… but this series has just gotten a bit too complicated for me.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed this story, the characters were awesome and I liked the mystery of it all, the problem is that all the Nors God backstory and names have become so complicated that it’s difficult to follow this series. Having said that I really enjoyed meeting the characters in this book. Slade, Magnus and Sylvia are awesome and I really liked their love story. Though for me Sydney stole the show. I can’t wait to read her book, she reminds me of characters from Shelly Laurenston‘s Pride series.
I’ll definitely end up reading the rest of the books in this series but I’m hoping DMB finds a way to clarify the stories because it’s all just one confused mess right now. Though I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to the incestuous element of the series 😛
