Phaelyn & Idris have worked together for a long time but, mooned over each other from afar; until his capture by the necromancers. When the Shadow Tram finally locates him after many days of torture Phaelyn is the one to find him & take him to somewhere safe until the rest of the team could get to them.
The place was an abandoned cabin in the woods; while there Phaelyn & Idris realized that the were each other's mate & bonded to each other right away.
When they decided that Idris would come & live with her & Idris saw her condo he was startled because of a "dream" he had that ended with her death by the hands of the necromancer, Zoreal who had tortured him. But, as you will read at the end of this book that the real life ending to his dream is much better.
This book was short but excellent & I will be reading some more of the books in this series.
Idris was a vampire guard that was taken by the Necromancers during the last battle. They have tortured him, but he doesn’t give them anything. He has hope that his vampire clan will come and save him. Even if they don’t make it in time, all he wants is to see her one more time.
This was a short novella between Toma and Teague, but with everything Ariel’s books have: romance and action. This couple was a shock because well I didn’t think of them, but so happy to see their story. You can read this at any point, but it would make sense to read after Toma since there are things that would make more sense coming into Teague instead of going in blind. Was a great short read.
I was truly bugged at the end of Toma, when I couldn’t remember what happened to Idris. I even went back and re-read through the fight sequence twice! Good to see him…but as a hostage…not so much. But the Olarus are an honorable family, and never gave up searching for Idris. Says a lot about their character…and his. I also loved that Idris KNEW they would come for him – he just had to hold on.
Enjoyed the opening sequence, detailing how Phaelyn came to be a made vampire. Gave more depth to her, and explained not only why she’d never again be a victim, but her motivation to excel as a Shadow warrior. Would have enjoyed some of the same for Idris, but not having it didn’t detract from the story.
It was a bit surprising to find that while both Idris and Phaelyn were pledged to the Royal Family, they actually had little contact with each other. Explains some of their hesitancy and unfounded doubts.
This author has a knack for writing villains I truly loathe! Like Xalak before him, Zoreal made me wish I could kill him myself! LOL! The description of Idris after his last “session” with Zoreal was it for me – he had to go!
Good team effort out in the woods. Shadow warriors will not be deterred…no matter how many versi there are!
It was also refreshing to see Idris and Phaelyn not go through endless, unnecessary denial about being mates, being together, blah, blah, blah. They both knew that despite being vampires, time was still a gift.
Good to see those around the Royal Family also find their fated mates.
Loved this surprise installment in the Dark Shadows series, and definitely recommend it!
Ariel Marie continues to build on the history and characters already in place, and still manages to bring surprises to the series. While each of the books is a standalone story, I highly recommend reading them in order, because there is a story thread that continues throughout.
