This one had the humor, sex, and fun, but I found the plot to be unbelievable. Yes, I know the whole series is sci-fantasy based, so yeah, not real. But knowing the supposed reach and power of Lucien Argeneau from 30 other books, I find it hard to believe a woman supposedly as ignorant of the immortal world as Basha could avoid him for centuries. Add to that her insultingly naive approach to her “son,” inability to see what pure evil he is, and I just couldn’t appreciate her at all as a heroine. To me, she wasn’t the tragic, mislead soul that Sands was obviously attempting to portray, but a dumb, insecure, gullible, oblivious person who jumped to conclusions and/or never stopped to question anything she was told. Someone who has supposedly lived centuries, yet still can’t think critically for herself just doesn’t seem very heroic to me.
I disliked it so much that when I reread the series, I skip it. I spent far too much of my one read of this book wanting to strangle Basha or give her a Gibbs slap at the very least.
Basha Argeneau is the long lost niece of Lucian; when she was 11 she was captured & tortured by Leonius Livis the crazy no-fanger who was trying to make an army of sons by impregnating women young or old. Basha has been on the run for years trying to avoid capture by Lucian because of another crazy immortal put those thoughts in her head.
Basha has been traveling with a circus for the last couple of years & Marcus was doing a favor for Lucian because Marguerite suggested it & he then found Basha or Divine as she was being called at the circus. Marcus thought that are 1st he couldn't read her because she was older than him but later realized that it was because she was his lifemate; but Basha wasn't totally sure why she couldn't read him.
There is a lot of plots in this book; there was seeing some old friends again in this book, there were some sex scenes & there were some truths that were told to Basha that were shocking. But, you will have to read the book to find out what they are. I did finish this fast-paced action packed book in 1 day & will be reading the next book in this series later today.
Then I got to the "dark" part. Definitely different from all of Lynsay Sands other Argeneau novels, and I have read them all. I have to say this was not my favorite. It was intense, and I do like intense stories, but this one went too far, with rape, torture and murder of not only adults but children and babies. I know this is a vampire story but I much more enjoy Lyndsay Sands sense of humor in her previous novels over this dark side she as discovered. I wouldn't say don't read this, especially if you are a Lynsay Sands fan as I am, but just be prepared for the dark side. I really hope that her next novel is back to the funny side with lots of action. In my opinion her best books were, "Immortal Ever After", "Under A Vampire Moon", "A Bite to Remember", "Tall, Dark, and Hungry", and "Love Bites".
The initial story - Marcus is tracking down the elusive, possible rogue, Basha Argeneau as a favor to Lucian, and also because he's been kinda at loose ends w/ Julius & Christian both finding life mates recently. He meets Divine, and they connect but she not only has secrets but she also has a son to protect. Or, at least, she think she has to protect him. Parts of this story reminded me of Vampire, Interrupted (Julius & Marguerite's tale) because it seems like Divine has a past that she can't remember. She compartmentalizes her thoughts & memories, to the point that even when she's being read, no one is able to get the full picture. And even we, as the reader, aren't given the full picture because when she thinks of the past, she thinks of it in snippets as well.
Anyway, with the exception of a few fun encounters, this book has a more serious bent than even VI. It's focused more on "is Divine Basha, and is Basha a rogue?" than the relationship between Basha & Marcus. And the dark parts of the story are VERY dark. The reveal of what Basha actually went through is super sad but was well-done. I just think / wish that the story should have gone on a LITTLE bit more after that. We didn't really get to see the fun side of this relationship, except for one date-night. And I missed that.
What I loved, tho, far outweighs what I didn't. The cameos by Vincent, Jackie, Tiny, Mirabeau and even Lucian... :) It was super nice to get to see Vincent back in his playful sidekick role. : ) And I absolutely LOVE Lucian any time I can get him! I'm looking forward to continuing with this series, and I do hope we get more glimpses into Marcus & Basha's relationship in the future. Perhaps a "catch us up with everyone" Christmas novella, Ms Sands? ; )

I hope that Lynsay Sands continues to write stories linked to the family trees
