Book Description

Eons ago, the darkly handsome and infamous bounty hunter Drake of Tanith turned his back on his diabolical heritage in favor of freedom from the infernal influences of his kind. But now his indomitable father has delivered the worst kind of ultimatum: He must give up his soul and return to the life he left behind – or he must give up his love.

In the ultimate race against time, Drake struggles to save both himself and the woman he cherishes from the razor-sharp clutches of the man he hates. Will he succeed in his battle against assassins, devils, and gods? Or will he lose to the one he despises the only thing he has ever held dear?

Find out in book two in the Chosen Soul series by New York Times bestselling author, Heather Killough-Walden.

5.0 out of 5 stars So in Love with these tortured devil souls! January 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Absolutely riveting. This book was amazing and definitely worth the wait. Wow! Heart pounding, breath stopping, gut wrenching, nail biting, tear jerking, great! What a followup book to The Chosen Soul. I'm so in LOVE with the two main characters Raven and Drake that Heather has penned life into for this magical story. Heather, you are just magical, there are no words that can properly express the gift that is your writing talent. Thank you, simply and true. For sharing this gift with us all. Please continue to grace us with your unending unique imagination. Please, Please, don't take too long with the next book we need to know how this story ends and I don't think I can take waiting a year to find out. Readers out there, if you have not read The Chosen Soul yet, get to it, you're missing out on a magical journey. Honestly, anything Ms. Killough-Walden writes is guaranteed to be a wonderful adventure. I have read all of her books and have yet to be disappointed. If she writes it, I will read it. Yeah, She's that great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review for Drake of Tanith by Heather Killough-Walden December 29, 2011
By Alyssa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When the author gifted me this book, I have to say I was soooo excited! I read The Chosen Soul and loved it, and could not wait for a sequel. Drake of Tanith definitely exceeded my expectations.

Summary: Cruor is dead. Drake is in the Witherlands. And now Raven Grey is stuck in the elves' palace. Desperate to escape, Raven makes a promise with the elf princess and leaves, searching for Drake. But things are not so easy. Drake struggles to hold on to Raven while fighting off a man he loathes. And now someone is hunting the Dark Royalty. Is anyone safe? Can Drake hold on to his life and Raven's?

What I Liked: Drake of Tanith has a beautiful flow to the story. The prose is meticulous, making the plot swift and entertaining. The characters are three-dimensional and all very likable. I was not a huge fan of Drake in The Chosen Soul, but now it's all Drake. I like the change in pace of the story, and the addition of several other plotlines to follow. This book had a way of capturing my attention and keeping me interested throughout every part.

What I Did Not Like: I honestly cannot find something that I did not like with this book. It was near-flawless. I suppose the thing I do not like about this book is that I have to wait for the next one.

Would I Recommend It: Most definitely. I loved this book a million times more than I liked The Chosen Soul, and I loved The Chosen Soul. This book was so thorough and had me reading down to the last page. You will not want to put it down until the last word. I'm a teen, and I would say that this book is for upper teens and adults.

Rating: 5 stars. This was a great book. I can't wait for the next one.

Another captivating read by Ms. Killough-Walden! :)

Drake of Tanith review

Inside us all is a power struggle. Most of us have a hidden sadist, and it is that paradox which corrupts the powerful.

I read The Chosen Soul, and it left me craving a climax between Drake and Raven. The ending of The Chosen Soul was so disturbing, sinister, and heart wrenching, it pretty much guaranteed I *needed* to read the sequel.

Heather's timing was serendipitous as I'd just received an ipad and finally had some free time to myself to wallow in some romantic waters with a new book.

Opening this book was a fight. I did - and I didn't - want to. I was desperate to read it, but also knew it is just one more step on their journey, I knew it would sate and parch in equal measure. The sadist known as Heather Killough-Walden would offer a drink which you would swallow greedily, but the promise of more thirst at the end of it was a given. I knew this... but the temptation was too dark... too richly beckoning... I gave in - and shut out the world to be alone with my favorite devils.

I have a weakness for Drake, and it was wonderful being back in his company. His broody silences and magnetic charisma makes you want to trip him (or pinch him) just to see his reaction. He's the type of character you wish you could goad. You want to press his buttons. Raven does a fair enough job of it... but this story isn't about Raven. Raven is the stitching holding the edges sewn together, but Drake of Tanith was so much better than the first book. Politics, so dark and treacherous, is running the gauntlet, and despite myself I honestly came to like the Elf prince this time around.

I know he's a B***** but in this book he got my vote. He is so much more then his reputation, so much more than his actions...

4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating July 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hated getting to the end because as of yet there is not another book. Do I need to say more? There is such tenderness in the writing in this novel, almost as if the protagonists are the beloved of the author. Drake and Raven are poetic figures and this connects us fiercely to these suffering souls. Doubts and beliefs float endlessly around them and that makes them deliciously human, and so we worry about their decisions, and once we worry then the next book becomes a must. What more could any author or reader want?
