With this book, Nora is back in the picture, and she's on the run. Forced to hide from both Soren and Kingsley, she decides to look up her Mother in, of all places, the Abbey of the Sisters of Saint Monica. She convinces her Mother and Mother Prioress to let her stay in the nunnery. There, she meets Kyrie, another nun who becomes a confidant (in more ways than one) who convinces her to take up writing-something she's always done, but not with serious intent. In an alternate plot, we find out how Kingsley met Juliette in Haiti.
The book is framed so well. Reisz really knows how to plot a novel. It is told the day of a wedding ("Nora's wedding," we are told), and the prequel is framed in flashbacks around that event. The title "The Virgin" has many different meanings in this work, and why-because Reisz is an awesomely clever writer. The references in all her works, from The Little Prince to the Greek tale of Apollo and Daphne, are not what you expect in any type of fictional work nowadays, Reisz has done her homework and her double entendres are clever. Not many authors can keep the amount of characters her series has interesting and fresh-she does so with ease. The new characters she introduces are credible editions to the series-Kyrie is a great character. Brad Wolfe is talked about but not introduced-could we see more of him in upcoming books? I can only hope and pray.
Again, this is a wonderful edition to the series. I can't wait to hear more from this extremely talented artist.
Having loved The Original Sinners Series (a.k.a. The Red Years), it was a little hard to transition to the White Years. Don't get me wrong, I totally enjoyed those books just not as much The Original Sinners but The Virgin was everything that I love and more about Tiffany Reisz.
“If you saw the crowd I used to run with...let's just say we put the original in original sin.”
She knows how to write a compelling story about pain and passion like no other. BDSM was something I knew very little about and HO BOY, did I ever get the lesson of a lifetime when I discovered this author. The characters she writes about are complex, she creates a world where people overcome the challenges faced by their lifestyle choices, and I love every page of it!
If you think you know Nora, Soren and Kingsley...you don't, trust me. This book delves into their relationships and I fell in love with Kingsley, I have never been his biggest fan, not until this book. Also, the intimate scenes are quite scandalous in this particular installment!!! *fans self*
Let's talk about the kink, shall we? I won't lie and say I was totally okay with the kink because more often than not, I was uncomfortable but I did find it to be absolutely fascinating! The kind of BDSM play that is put on display is taboo, so consider yourself warned.
Stories told in flashback sequences are not my favorite because I typically already know a lot about the story and I suppose that's why I had a hard time with The Saint but in The Virgin it totally worked. We finally learn about the time when Eleanor left Soren. *gasp* She left for a very good reason and my heart broke when I found out why. Not only do we find out about Nora's reason for leaving but we are given so much insight about the kind of man Kingsley is and how he came to be with Juliette.
“I told you the first night you and I spoke that your shepherd was a wolf. He is a wolf on a leash and that leash might break someday. When that happens, you take care of yourself. I’ll take care of him.”
My only call-out is Nico and I'm still not sold on him. I don't have a problem with what he represents to Nora but it's who he is that bothers me. But that's a separate discussion for those who have read it. *wink* He’s only mentioned once or twice in this book but still…
Tiffany Reisz is a brilliant author who mixes hot button topics (i.e. religion) with equal parts steaminess and has made The Virgin a favorite (for me) in The White Years series.
