Every inch of him was molded as if from granite…and her blood ran like fire…
For centuries, V has waited to awaken from his doomed sleep and reclaim his destiny. But this Dragon King–one among a legion of legendary warriors sworn to protect the human race from darkness–must first find a way to win back his sword. Wield its power. And try not to fall prey to his own illicit desires.
Claire may possess the beauty and soul of a goddess but V knows better than to mess with a mere mortal. Still, he instinctively knows that Claire is The One who can help him regain the use of his sword and restore his place at Dreagan. But if she learns the truth about who–and what–he really is, her memories of him would be erased forever. How can V love Claire truly, madly, deeply…and protect her from the forces of fire and darkness that could destroy them both?
I received a free, advance copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased review.
Yeah, I got the ARC like a month before the book was suppose to be out, yet I just read it like two days before the book was to be released… i must say it was worth it.
This one is V’s story. Frankly, from the number of times we have read about him, i never thought that he would have such a explosive and risky story. He already suffered too much from losing his sword and The Others messing with his memories, but the curve ball that Ms. Grant created was something i was expecting from another Kings, but not him.
Still it does not diminished the fact that it was one of those stories that will bring smile, and tears to your eyes. The fight scene was not there, and I for one, is glad about it.
From how the story line is progressing, I am guessing the nest book,~ whether it is a Reaper or a Kings book~ we will have the usual blood shed.
As for Claire…I need to go back to Darius and Sophie’s book to recall what happen to her. Yes, I do that…There were some clues on the first part of the book that made me smile and when she told V something important, I was happy that my hunch was right.
UB*** need to be dealt with. LIKE NOW!!!
She has cause too much havoc. Rhi’s father is…not will not go there, not yet. Death? Wow, i like her, but i wonder what will be the next for the Reapers.
The King of the Dark, ~ can’t really spell his name with out murdering it~ I hope that he can have his HEA, he need it was much as what happened to Ulrik. Then again, how and which world will his true mate be? Thinking about him, makes me cry. I can feel how much he loves Rhi, and yet, Rhi tries so hard…
As for Con, if he can only let someone carry some of the burden he has maybe be wont be like that, but alas, he is as stubborn as the rest of the Kings. Although, the mated ones are far more different that it was before.
Donna Grant gave us another book to add to our growing pile. And I know, once the whole Dark Series is done, I will definitely read the books again. Each book is filled with respect, friendship, hardship, and whole lot of fighting, but behind all of that, it teaches us that LOVE will always be the greatest treasure a person could have. It does not matter if it is brotherly, nor friendship, nor mate love. Once you are love, you know that you are never alone.
And that everyone, is what Donna has done to the books that she has written. With each book, with each story, she is telling us that we are loved.
