This one is probably my favorite from the series so far. So much love (yet not too sappy), and lots of adventure.
KC killed this IAD book! The scenes from the Amazon were so enthralling, definitely a page-turner!
I loved the cameos of some of my favorites and their quirks (Nix, Reign)---had me cracking up.
I adored Lucia. Strong, determined but still had weaknesses (hello, hot rugby-playing Lykae!).
Garreth. Oh boy, another MacRieve to love! He was stubborn, but not as much as Lachlain. I loved how carefree he seemed the entire story, like nothing would deter him from Lucia just because he loved her (not so much the instinct or fate)- his instinct guided him to her, but it seemed he actually liked her.
As I said above, the Amazon scene(s)? Awesome.
“At fifty times the distance, you dispatched that ko-bold with three arrows to the neck. I’ve earned a trio to the chest. Seems you slapped him while you’re tickling me. You doona want to kill me, which is a good sign. Maybe this is your way of flirting?”
Those wolfy boys don’t give up easy and Garreth will follow her to the end of the earth in order to finally catch her. Lucia is on a deadly mission of her own. Sure she is running fast and hard from Garreth but she also needs to find a special arrow, a god killer, to avert an impending apocalypse. Our girl on a mission has no time to be swept off her feet, but thanks to Nix’s melding she is trapped in a position that she needs Garreth’s help to find the arrow that can kill a god and save her from her past. When stuck that close to a man she desperate wants and nowhere to run Lucia will finally have to face what does she want more her skill or a life with Garreth.
“I’ll do this to you till there’s something to take the place of your vows—until you see the two of us together as your religion.”
I loved/hated the bad guy in this installment, he was well thought up and terrifying. Also there was a guest appearance by Lothaire and he totally has some weird endgame plan that I’m not sure about but can’t wait to find out what goes through that vampires head. Of course Nixxy is my favorite goddess in training and I loved the explanation of how she could become a goddess by manipulating the outcome of this accession. She still has funny great lines and can’t give a straight answer for anything but leads our couple at least in the right direction.
Everything you need will be on that boat.”
“Nix, you have to tell me more!” Lucia cried. “Why do you always parcel out information?”
“I’m an oracle. It’s what we do,” she answered. “Now, do I really need to fake the static again?”Click
I think I’d probably read this series just for Nix moments. It seems like it has been awhile since we got to see Emma and Lachlian together as well so I was really happy for glimpses of the happy couple and Laclain giving Garreth advice on finding his mate. It looks like there could be some ¼ Valkyrie ¼ Vampire ½ Laykae sometime in the future is that a Valaypire, Vampkykae, or Layvamprie I have no idea how immortal genetics work.
“She took me to a mall yesterday"' Lachlain sounded as if he'd just stifled a shudder. "And she pointed to a boy and said, 'I think I want one.' So naturally, I start thinking, Where can I get a wee mortal? But she meant a bairn—our bairn.”
The lore of this book was back on track, great bad guy, wonderful love story and interesting resolution with a slight intrigue as to who exactly has kidnapped Regin. Can’t wait to read on and see what is happening with all of the immortals that have seem to gone missing…Nixxy I’m sure you have a finger in this jar too.
THE STORY: Lucia the Huntress (a Valkyrie) is an amazing archer and has a dark and secretive past. When the Lykae (werewolf) Garreth MacRieve scents Lucia, he recognizes her as his mate. Lucia has sworn an oath of celibacy and tries to avoid the determined Garreth. Garreth spends his time watching and protecting Lucia from a distance until she goes on a journey to confront her past and save the future.
OPINION: There was so much that I liked about this book but I did not like it as much as others in the series. My biggest complaint is that it depended so much on Lucia keeping the secret of her past. She doesn't disclose it until it is too late and Lucia and Garreth almost die because of it. I slowly became annoyed by her continued determination to keep her secrets even when it obviously was necessary to disclose.
Despite this, I really liked these characters. I thought that Lucia was an intriguing character because she funneled her powerlessness into being powerful and yet fair and thoughtful. I felt for her painful past and the fact that she has to confront her pain again and again. Garreth is a sweetheart. I'm a fan of these "wolfy" characters. Affectionate, determined to bring joy and pleasure to their mates in all ways. I loved how he cares for Lucia even in the face of her determination to reject him.
This was a good book but not one of my favorites of the series.
WORTH MENTIONING: By the time this book ends, there are big things afoot.
CONNECTED BOOKS: PLEASURE OF A DARK PRINCE is the ninth book in the Immortals After Dark series. It can be read as a standalone but readers should be aware that these books build upon one another regarding an overarching storyline. I think the books are better read in order.
STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars.
