Review: This story pulled me in right away and didn’t let me go until the very end. Its very emotionally driven and will leave the reader satisfied at the end.
This is a ménage book and while there is no sex between the main characters, they are very sensual, sexy and lusty. If this is not what the reader wants, then this book may not be suitable.
James and Christian are already a couple when Asya joins and makes them a trio. These types of dynamics have a potential to be problematic, but right from the start, both men are willing to allow her to enter their relationship. Their characters don’t really develop as they are fully mature vampires and they understand what their role in the vampire world they play.
Asya is the one that feels unsure and insecure at the beginning of the book. She isn’t sure how she’s going to fit into Christian and James’s dynamic, she doesn’t know how she’s supposed to bring balance to the world, or even if she’s the vampire to do the trick. She’s afraid of hurting others with her gift, and she has no experience to go by. I love how her character grows and matures by the end of the book. She really comes into her own. The author made me feel who Asya is and I really did feel her maturity and growth by the end of the book.
It really is life experiences that help shape who we are, and what develops our maturity. Asya had one heck of a lesson that she had to go through that changed her, and I mourn for who she was, as I think she does too, but it was necessary for her growth to go through that and she came out stronger and wiser on the other side. I also think it helped develop more empathy and compassion as well. Isn’t if funny how trauma, and awful experiences can heighten one’s compassion and instead of holding on to anger, as that doesn’t do any good, one can call upon what they went through and use that to facilitate healing for others. I love how light can come from darkness.
Check this book out if the reader chooses to do so, it’s a great story to get lost in.
