This is the second story in the Elder Races series.
Ms Harrison has created an amazing world with Immortals such as Dragons, Thunderbirds, Gryphons, and Harpies. These creatures are apart of the Wyr Demense, as well as other Demenses' such as Faeries, Witches, Goblins, and Vampyres.
This story is about Niniane also known as "Tricks" to her Wyr friends who she has been living/hiding with for the last 200 years because she is the sole survivor of a coup against her family who was the reigning Royal family of the Dark Court at the time.
When her Uncle (who lead the coup against her family) is killed by Dragos, Niniane comes out of hiding to claim her rightful spot as heir to the throne.
In her first meeting with the delegation from the Dark Court, an assassination attempt is made on her. She barely survives the attack, but thanks to her intensive training with the Sentinels, she escapes and goes into hiding.
Dragos and the Wyr court watch the assassination attempt on all the media outlets, and Tiago their best tracker and warlord goes out with the intention of finding her and bringing her back to safety in New York.
From this point of the story on there are a lot of twists and turns, and it is a wonderful adventure.
I really enjoy this series and the amazing world Ms Harrison has created.
Five stars all the way up. Great external plot, clear and complex characters, entertaining secondary characters , sexy and witty rejoinders and banter, jealous and violent claims of passion and ownership, references to some of my favorite pop culture trends, a who done it? murder mystery, and the promise of peace from perseverance- this was a fun ride! I feel like I’m enjoying the Guild Hunter series again but this series is less dangerous and violent. The edge that I adore in Singh work is not in this book. I repeat it is NOT in this book. I had to consider this deeply to appreciate book one and then fully enjoy this series. They have a few similarities but do not superimpose one for the other. Both authors supply different but equally incredible talents. If you’re into a nice, semi gruesome urban fantasy , then look no further!
There were also a few mistakes such as mixing up a clip with a magazine, a halter for a bridle, and if a stallion was really camping he would have spent the entire time yelling his head off for the mares. Camping with a stallion when there are other horses around usually sucks. And why did Tiago's partisan shift produce fangs if his Wyr form was a beaked Thunderbird?
That said, as in the last novel I enjoyed her nods to great movies. This one paid homage to The Wizard of Oz, The Incredibles, and The Lord of the Rings.
There was also some funny dialogue and since the main problem facing them (lack of acceptance of any Wyr or part Wyr heirs) has not been resolved, a bit of a cliff hanger.
I am more looking forward to books 3 & 4.
