Gavriel is an ancient vampire who lives in the same magical hidden city of Lycaonia where the first book also takes place. He’s been dreaming of his mate, and the dreams are scaring him due to his mate being a complete klutz, and being hurt all the time. Elizabeth comes to Lycaonia and immediately upon seeing Gavriel, knows he is her mate. On Gavriel’s part he recognizes her from his dreams. But Gavriel has a problem, he is going through a major vampiric transition that happens only at certain stages of a vampires life. Once he is done, he will be stronger and have more powers. It also makes him aggressive, mean, and causes him to want to drink blood all the time. Elizabeth isn’t scared though, having grown up in a vampire controlled town. Elizabeth isn’t a vampire, instead, she is a bunny shifter. At no time did they mention the word rabbit, everyone called her a bunny.
This was a pretty good premise to start with. However, although we do get that part of the story, in actuality, the couple from the first book, Meryn and Aiden, should have been listed as co-couple along with Gavriel and Elizabeth. And while I really liked Meryn in the first book, I found myself a bit irritated with her at every turn in this installment. She’s still hyper, still unfiltered, still owner of a potty mouth, still everything she was in the first book. There’s been no growth due to her being mated now, or maybe I should say, she still acts like a teenager, at age thirty four. On Aiden’s part, he’s still pretty much a neanderthal. Whereas I laughed a lot in the first book at their antics, I don’t think I laughed at all this time around. Well okay, I did laugh once that I can remember. Another one of those trips to the human store for Aiden, and it was fun.
I honestly didn’t dislike the book. It was enjoyable at times, and I did like when Gavriel and Elizabeth had alone time together, although that wasn’t as often as you would think in a book that was supposed to be their book. If you aren’t a fan of insta-love, well then this series would be disappointing to you. I did like the world building by the author. The hidden, spelled towns in various parts of the world, each controlled by the different factions-shifters, vampires, Fae, and witches, was different. Feral supernatural beings trying to start a war of sorts was also a good part of the book and added suspense to the story. And while I felt like I got to know Gavriel’s personality, I really didn’t feel like I knew that much about Elizabeth by the end. I think Meryn’s big personality just overrode Elizabeth’s personality, so that nothing really stood out for me, other than her love of fashion and being a good organizer. And the fact that she is a major klutz.
I do plan to read the next book in the series as some of the other characters are dreaming of their mates as well, and I want to see what happens. This is an adult read due to language and plenty of sexy times.
I had an issue with the h--I just didn't know how to feel about her. The preview suggested she was going to be "cute" in a "clumsy, goofy" kind of way. I thought she was actually a very intelligent being--who fell down a lot. This made gave her a "weird" quality to me, instead of making her more endearing.
The relationship happened WAY too quickly for my taste. I'm all for "fated mates", but these two met, decided they were mates, were perfectly happy with that, he fed from her, and were together within the first couple of pages, and the "I love you's" came shortly after. I just need A LITTLE more build up to the relationship. I was hoping for some excitement, unsure feelings, angst, something to fill in the gaps. It seemed like they were an old married couple too soon.
I did enjoy the couple from the first book--but they seem to overshadow this one. I know there is an ongoing story line, but I felt the h from the first book really took center stage in this one too. I would rather my stories to be about a different H and h, than share the spotlight.
There were things I enjoyed with this story. I did like the writing style, and yes, the "condom" thing was funny. There were also some entertaining antics going on, (but just not from the "main" couple), so I bumped to to 2 1/2-3 stars. A lot of others seemed to enjoy this book. Readers really do need to read the first in this series before tackling this one.
Review 👇 SPOILERS ALERT!!!
Beth is the perfect person for Meryn. "Coughs" I mean she's perfect for Gavriel, lol 😂. Seriously though, her and Gavriel are a really good couple. I mean they compliment each other really well, which to be expected since their mates.
Gavriel is 10,000 years old??!?! (And actually, he might older since he only started counting after a certain time so...) That's a long time to live! Why would he want to live that long? And I don't mean he should have killed himself but...to live the long? I don't know how he did it. To watch as everyone he knows and loves, died around him? I couldn't do it, and I don't know anyone who could do it either.
Now, Beth and Meryn? Their the perfect team! Meryn's the war general and devises plans to defeat the enemy, and Beth is the assistant/organizer who makes sure the plan goes as planned and everyone is where their supposed to be.
Now this book, was amazing! So much laughter and drama, I couldn't read it slow enough! I finished it in 5 hours and was left with, "When's the next one? When's the next one?! 8 months?! Are you kidding me? I want it now! *sobbing*" lol but I'm for real. I really wanted the next one immediately!
I had no problems with this book, and I would definitely recommend this book to everyone!! It was that good! 😉
