And Hot Damn......new book boyfriends.......
As unique as Cuinn and Rian's Soulshare was, there was an even stranger twist to the connection between Bryce and Lasair. Turns out that part of the reason why Bryce was such a jerk was because he had no soul to begin with. Because of that, Lasair could see the worth in Bryce even when no one else could. Just another unique twist in the Soulshares series that keeps me reading. I'm also loving the fact that all the previous characters are still an important part of the series.
I also loved learning about Bryce's back story. It made sympathizing with him just a little bit easier. The Marfach's POV still made me cringe, but the cuteness of the baby Fade-Hound balanced those moments out just a little. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series and can't wait to see what Coileain has in store for readers next. ;)
I received Blowing Smoke in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I should’ve learnt by now that Rory ni Coileain, except the immense talent to weave tales as prefect as Fae knotwork, always has a surprise or two hidden up her sleeve.
In “Blowing smoke” she succeeds to turn one perfectly antipathetic character in one you fall in love with and it’s not even a slow process. It happens right away. Same goes for Lasair Faol, the Fae of book Five. Whether the reason is his devotion to the helpless fade-hound puppy Setanta or his dignity and readiness for self-sacrifice, or all of them, I’m still not sure but he fascinated me from the start.
Another surprise? I laughed more than I did in the other four books taken together. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that Ms Ni Coileain hadn’t peppered a fair share of fun moments in books 1-4, especially the priceless quips and pleasantries Fae and human exchange. In “Blowing Smoke” however there are also humorous descriptions and inner monologues. The fact that Lasair had just “fallen from Heavens” is only one of the reasons for them.
It’s good we have the comic relief to balance the angst we get from witnessing the “kid with no soul” and the Fae “as clumsy as one of his pups” in the Art of seduction finding their way to redemption together. Along the bumpy road there are those sweet moments which make them seems like teenagers smitten by first love, not as an ancient Fae used to training fierce carnivores and a Wall Street financial guru/certified heartbreaker. But then, it is a fact it is first love for both of them.
Needless to say, we meet again all other Fae of the newly created Demesne of Purgatory and get to go through an action packed open air battle with the Marfach.
There’s a lot of hotness and magick all around as usual however amidst all of this the new SoulShared couple is what grabs and holds the attention. At the end of the day, it is really this simple. Love wins.
