So she embarks on a quest to find the one who can hopefully ease her misery. He did so many things that made me shake my head and a few that made absolutely no sense at all. Someone who won't give up until he has destroyed her. Then he fights the bad guy over and over for the rest of the book. There is some consolation to be found however, because there was an into to the next book and the first chapter.
She had released him from his promise, and if he had kept walking to the stables rather than stopping to have a drink, he would never have known any different. I didn't realize this was part of a series, until I was finished with it. Nearly consumed by grief and fury, Drake is nevertheless bound by an unholy promise: for those she gave life, he has pledged his own. She knows he has a connection to a powerful witch known as the baobhan sith- a blood witch- and she's hoping this witch can take away her magic. It is forbidden for a blood-witch to kill and consume the blood of another, yet that is exactly what Luthias is doing.
Some part of him felt better with a task, a mission, something to distract him from thoughts of the future. Could have done so much better and didn't. In this book, most of the story is the lead up to becoming a vampire. He got to his feet, listening. The taverns never closed, since the fishermen came and went all night.
She worked all day in the fields, cared for their animals, and in the cottage she cooked and washed and made certain they had light and fuel. Men are worthless, disgusting vermin. A cool breeze did not refresh her on a warm day, and cold, wet days did not make her uncomfortable. It had a very cold sort of feel to it. And then you will come back here and make your husband suffer as he has made you suffer.
While I didn't hate it, it is my least favorite book of the series. Drake imagined him shaking his head decisively. Was that what it was? He had lain in bed, his blankets wadded in fists under his chin, and blinked at her owlishly. Our author has given us a nicely spun next chapter in a wonderful paranormal romance saga that is sure to touch all the senses. They both think a visit to a vampire can help with their problems. She had been waiting for weeks now, but so far, nothing. He paced outside for a moment, his chest a knot, teeth clenched.
But not Drake; he owes her a life - his life - much to his dismay. Drake MacKay is no stranger to the double-edged powers of blood witches. He would tell her to stop running and come out where he could see her, but she only faded further away. Anyway, I still absolutely love Jen Holling's style of writing and look forward to reading more by her. Hannah makes the tale with her death wish making her the opposite of her peer Luthias whose death wish is to dine on human blood until his victim is dead.
Drake MacKay and his family. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Doubtless the thing that waited for him believed he did not intend to fulfill his promise at all. Urgency mixed with impatience in his gut. This is a story of love, trust, deceit, evil and good, hate, abuse and whispered secrets. And when he overhears a violent plot stirred up by villagers, he finds himself irresistibly called to warn her -- and escapes with her into the night. His own niece Deidra and his best friend were saved by a baobhan sith: Hannah O'Shea, the same spirit who would not heal Drake's dying wife.
Whatever ailed her was not his concern. A tale of things that go bump in the night and of gifts of nature. The silence drew out longer this time. I was sad to see that holy water did not change them back into normal people. He is righteous, pompous, good but evil, could be handsome but now a monster, should be respected by all but is more feared than the devil himself. The last time we waited and prayed, the gruff voice said, bad things happened.
The prospect held little interest. So, he travels to the deserted and dark island to present himself as a bargained. The woman inside was a shell. She is hanted by a witch-hunter who blames her for his fierce desire for her. He inclined his head, not willing to thank her verbally.
There had been no point. He had a vague recollection of his last visit six months ago. Nearly consumed by grief and fury, Drake is nevertheless bound by an unholy promise: for those she gave life, he has pledged his own. A man not burdened by pride or thirst for revenge. Jen Holling is an author to be reckoned with and won't disappoint you in the least.
