Editorial Reviews

Review

"When Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love collaborate on a book, the result is always spellbinding." Single Titles 

"Overall, I did really enjoy the action, suspence and drama that this book provides. The highlight of this book for me is Evalle. In a genre like urban fantasy that is filled with kick ass heroines, Evalle manages to stand out and be a is a force to be reckoned with."
~~ Paranormal Haven


"There are SO many things in this series that I want to learn more about; there's no way I could list them all.  Mses. Kenyon and Love have me on tenterhooks waiting for the third BELADOR book.  As Evalle would say, "Bring it on." " 
~~ Romance Junkies


 "The Belador series is a true shining star for lovers of Urban Fantasy or anyone just looking for an intense and compelling read."
~~ Rage, Sex and Teddy Bears


"With a tight, fast-moving plot, unforgettable complex characters and a solid story, ALTERANT propels the series forward. A must read for fans. If you're new to the series, you won't miss much by starting with this book, but why deprive yourself? Begin the journey with Evalle in Blood Trinity."

If you've read and liked Blood Trinity, you're absolutely going to love Alterant, and you already know that's Feenix saying "Yeth, da**it!" *grin* Alterant includes more of the little gargoyle, so if you're like me, you'll be happy to get your "Feenix Fix."

It was clear by the end of Blood Trinity that Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love were setting readers up for a big series. It just wasn't clear HOW big that series was going to be. The answer is, it's going to be huge. Love has become known for her fantastic, twisted suspense plots and weaving a story that's a complex puzzle. Kenyon's Dark Hunter/Dream Hunter romance series spans more than 20 books. Her ability to build worlds and characters is unmatched.

But this is urban fantasy, and these two authors are pulling out all the stops, giving readers the best of all of it. The world is fascinating, with characters, both good and evil, who are rich and evolving. Gods and goddesses, witches, demons, and heroes and heroines both human and preternatural, and not a cardboard cliché among them. Set that in an alternate Atlanta that feels real--one you won't want to leave--then combine it with fast-paced action and the human race in danger, and this writing team has raised the bar for urban fantasy.

Alterant takes us deeper into the lives and loves of Evalle, Tzader and Quinn, and I won't give spoilers, but I will say, be ready for an almost unfair number of "OMG!" moments. Alterant is brand new, but I'm already impatient for the next book.

The word "epic" is so overused, but both Kenyon and Love bring powerhouse writing talent to the page, and the combination has produced stories, and (I hope) a long-running series that is worthy of the word.

The first book in this wonderful urban fantasy series, Blood Trinity, promised a lot more to come and ALTERANT really delivers on that promise. Personally, I love a high action story and a kickass heroine, both of which Kenyon and Love provide in this book with a little added romance on the side. This was a great urban fantasy read with a well-developed mythology, complex characters, and inventive plot twists. I found myself so engrossed in what was happening with the heroine, Eval, that I literally could not read fast enough to see how it was going to end. This one will definitely keep you glued to the page and missing sleep to finish it!

I love most of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books until I read the first of the series she wrote with Dianna Love. I was very disappointed in the triteness and how the story flowed. Not the quality of the Dark Hunter and Dream Hunter series. Then I read Blood Trinity and really enjoyed it. Couldn't wait till the next book was published, which turned out to be "Alterant". Ms. Kenyon has always had an ending to her books so that they could be read as a stand-a-lone. But this book did not have a climax or a conclusion, just left the reader totally hanging. I was extremely disappointed and frustrated since I know I will have to wait many months for the next installation. I want to find out what happens with Evalle, but I may lose my interest by the time the next book is published. Since this faux pas never seemed to be Ms. Kenyon's style I can only assume that her writing with Dianna Love is a big mistake.

If you've missed the "Old Sherrilyn" a la early Darkhunter you see a little more of her in this book than some of the awful mess that has been out previously. It's not great though.

It seems as though someone took Acheron's story, his pain, his not fitting in no matter how much he tried to help and redefined the character and location.

Throw in a few zombies, some ghosts and other things that go bump in the night... along with a BAD type secret ops group and you have the Evalle books.

I'll be completely honest and say that I WANT to like this book. Sherrilyn Kenyon was my hands down favorite author. Right up until Bad Moon Rising. Everything since has been such a rehash and so pitifully executed that I will NOT buy anything else of hers.

I don't understand the double author dynamic but the tone and voice of the book isn't that of Kenyon's work (pre or post DarkHunter series). If I had to guess I'd say Dianna Love is a ghost writer getting some awesome credit but she's tied down to what she has read and her take on Kenyon's writing.

Long review short:

Would I buy it again? No. But I'd get if from the library just to make sure I haven't missed something. :)

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Poor Evalle can't catch a break. She was able to thwart the plans of the Kujoo and recover the powerful stone she was sent to find in Blood Trinity, but her troubles are only beginning. As this book begins, only hours have passed since the last story ended and now Evalle must face a powerful Tribunal of deities to account for her actions.

Her race, the Alterants, were already feared and reviled. But now several have shown themselves in beast form and killed. So when Evalle stands before the Tribunal to answer for herself, she finds herself judged for their misdeeds. Brina, the leader of the Beladors, stands up for her, but that can only take Evalle so far. In the end, she is charged with bringing in three Alterants known to be on the loose. If she can't do it, not only will they be sentenced to die, so will she.

On her mission, Evalle finds herself thrown back with Tristan, the Alterant she met in the last book. Storm, the jaguar-shifter is back too. His role as a protector and love interest is jacked up a notch. It's obvious he's falling hard for Evalle, but he has secrets he hasn't shared with her yet. And though Evalle is developing feelings for him, she has a lot to overcome, especially with her history of sexual assault.

The books in the Belador series are complicated. There are legions of characters, each with their own histories and agendas. This is not light reading... you have to pay attention. And even then, you may have work to keep up.

But if you can stay on top of it all, it's really good stuff. Evalle is a great character: fragile yet strong; both naive and jaded; afraid of love and still desperate for it.
