Ryals continues to strengthen and develop her characters throughout both books, effectively bringing them to life. By placing them in more intense situations, they are successfully pushed to their limits. The descriptions were well done too. In book one, I was able to picture and recognize many of the places described in the book partly because of my own experiences: a high school football game, a teenager's bedroom (even if it was in an abbey), a club, etc. In book two, I had to rely on the descriptions given, especially regarding places no mortal has ever been.
The fast paced story kept my interest. My favorite parts were the interactions between Dayton Blainey and Marcas Craig.
One of my favorite things about the story is Dayton's relationship with Marcas, which has been stepped up a notch in this book. Ryals does a masterful job of forcing the two together in tension filled situations where little touches and looks lets the reader in on the bond between them before the characters even realize it. I wanted to squeal every time Dayton dug her nails into Marcas' leg because she's afraid of heights and I secretly hoped he kept pulling her to him because he wanted/needed to be near her, not because she was cold or needed protection.
All of my favorite characters make an appearance, as well as some great new ones. There are subtle hints of the storylines of Monroe and Luther, of Connor and his new charge, and I found myself filling in all the blanks during the hours I wasn't able to read. (yeah, I didn't get a lot of work done while reading this)
The plot is fantastic, good versus evil with tons of blurry lines, love, sacrifice, endless danger, and tangled, tricky relationships. The heroine is strong, but not so much she doesn't worry or is never afraid, a realistic strong. And then, when she's in the face of the worst, most terrifying thing, she shines.
Ransom has only made me want more of Dayton and Marcas's story, it will be agony waiting for book three (sigh). This book was solid action, perfectly balance with a little humor and romance. If I could give it more stars, I would.
RANSOM is filled with action, thrills, adventure, humor, touching romance and surprises. I don't want to give anything away, but if you like paranormal romance that is decidedly not run of the mill than you have to read this series. I just finished reading book #3 and will review it as well.
I don't write a lot of reviews partly because it takes away from the time I could be reading another book and partly because I don't consider myself good at writing reviews and some of the reviews I read clearly put mine to shame but I do know what I like and I just try to tell a prospective reader what I liked, in generalities, about a particular book and hopefully if they like the same general elements in their reading choices they will enjoy whatever book I'm recommending. But this Series was so refreshingly interesting that I had to stop and tell you guys what I thought about this book and the Series! So it is with that in mind, that I highly recommend RANSOM, as well as the entire REDEMPTION trilogy. Yes, the books should be read in order since each sequel picks up where it predecessor leaves off.
