Speaking of getting to know someone better, Xavier wasn't an easy guy to get close to... not that Tess had any intention of trying. She was there keep herself hidden and hopefully protected. Plus, she was totally repulsed by vampyres in general. Not exactly a normal start for a romance, but it was also kind of an interesting twist in the genre, for me anyway.
Even though Xavier was more than a little private and at times withdrawn, it was obvious that there was more to him than what he showed people on the surface. Tess slowly began to notice that he may not be as bad as she once thought, but she still wasn't willing to give everything she asked for.
There were a lot of characters introduced in Night's Honor. I loved the dynamic between Xavier and his attendants. Tess tried his patience, but he still respected her. How he treated those who served him and stood beside him was part of the reason why he gained my respect, and eventually Tess's as well.
I'm kind of hoping that we see more of Xavier and Tess in the books that follow in the Elder Races. That's entirely possible, since the next book in the series features a couple of my least favorite vampyres from Night's Honor. I've already started reading Midnight's Kiss and I'm kinda warming up to Julian, but Thea Harrison has her work cut out for her to get me to get me to really care about him. (I have no doubt she's up to the task ;) )
I am thrilled with this book and can't wait for the next in the series. This author has honed her skill and natural talent for writing and her books just keep getting better and better, which is amazing when you consider that her first book in this series was top notch already. I don't know how she does it, but I am so very glad that she does it.
All the other attendants just seemed to be names except for Darius and while the action was intense it was a long time coming. Once I got to the interaction between Tess and Xavier things were better but the time when she was training was too long and dull and the time when she was with Xavier was too short and intense.
Still a good read but she has done so much better in previous novels.
Night's Honor was wonderful, I loved the both the of the leads, Tess is intelligent, and brave - and refuses to let her terror cripple her - and Xavier was just so everything - powerful, kind, dangerous, and sensual. Xavier's backstory is exceedingly well fleshed out, and since he is off-screen for awhile while Tess is training for her new life we have a chance to get to know her very well too. That time apart also allows for a slow build in the romance. I liked that there is a shift in the balance of power in their relationship before it moves to the next level. And I liked that the move was romantic as well as passionate.
Even though I enjoyed the background plot as much as the romance, I was caught a bit off guard by the way it was structured. What I thought was the major conflict of the story is resolved a fair way from the end of the book and then things shift to a larger world conflict that looks to carry over into the next book. I also have to mention that while I am not generally a vampire fan, I did enjoy seeing that corner of the Elder Races world, and Harrison did a good job of making the Nightkind and the working of Xaviers house interesting, while leaving most of the vampire cliches to the fringes of the story and the bad guys.
So, Night's Honor was a great addition to the series and was so good that I did all nine plus hours of audio for this in one day and it left me wanting to go back and purchase the audios for the earlier books, so that I don't have to leave this world co completely behind until the story continues with Julian and Melissande in Midnight's Kiss.
