Blurb: Théoden: Dante is within my grasp. I’m actually very excited to meet my future son. He’s got wolf’s blood flowing within his veins, so I know he’ll be the stubborn sort, but I do like a challenge. As for Deacon, the wolf Alpha has surprised me. I hadn’t expected him to locate Dante so quickly. He’s a cunning one I’m going to have to keep my eye on. His ambition is both admirable and dangerous. As for my King’s decree, things are moving along smoothly. I have two more children to sire and then I would have fulfilled my duty. The sooner I’m done with that, the quicker I can get to training my new child. I’m so looking forward to breaking him in.
Noel: As for my obligation to the King, I met his expectations. I’ve sired my first son and it’s been one hell of an experience. I thought I would feel overwhelmed, but Romeo is taking to this life so naturally. I guess you could say that I chose wisely. I’m also getting the hang of being in control and being his Father. No doubt, Marco’s training is seeing me through a lot of transition. Now, I have to hold up my part in the bargain Théoden made with Deacon. Can’t say I’m happy about being used as a bargaining chip, but it’s out of my hands. As for my training with Marco, he’s promised to put me through the ringer physically. I’m ready to learn more and grow stronger.
Warning: This serial contains strong adult content not meant for sensitive eyes. The novelettes in this serial will be filled with dark, twisted, raunchy and steamy scenes between powerful, sexy men that will either offend you or get ya revved up. This series will not be pulling any punches, and it won’t apologize for hurting your feelings, either. You’ll find no fluff and ruffles here. The vampires are not misunderstood, hopeless romantics looking for love. The werewolves are not cute and cuddly and the dragons aren’t the ones from your childhood. This is NOT a romance. There are approximately 34,600 words in this novelette.
Review: This series continues to deliver time and again. This is the end of a season, and while we get much of what we loved from the previous books, there is a lot of development in this segment.
Noel is adjusting to life as a sire, caught with the realizations of who he has become and the fact that he believes he now likes what that is. Realizing his place in the House of Théoden and that Romeo and how Noel treats or deals with him is a direct reflection on the family.
With Dante now having been exchanged, Théoden is more than ready to bring him on board. Dante is even more against it than Noel was, however, so that may prove challenging in the coming days. Théoden has proven time and again that he is more than capable of handling anything though, so I’m excited to see where that leads.
So, the King’s decree has been fulfilled with everyone having sired their vamps. Each seems to have found a really good match. The wolves and Théoden have fulfilled their promises thus far, and the alliance is beginning to grow. All is not quite as it seems though, as the wolves seem to be playing their own game. Question is whether it will force Théoden to act positively or negatively. Sure hope they know what they’re doing. 😀
As I have felt throughout this entire story, each book leaves me excited about what will happen or develop in the next. The covers are absolutely gorgeous, the crests and images all creating such a colorful world that you really feel a part of it. There is quite a bit of hot and raunchy sex, but it is the actual developments in the story that really keep me interested. Bring on Season Three!
Overall Impression: I loved it
