I received this book for review from the publisher through Net Galley
#6.5 in the Dark Protectors Series
Publication Date: May 15, 2014
This is my first time reading this author. I knew it was part of a series, but it looked interesting and I hoped that I would not be too lost as to what was going on. While I might have enjoyed the book more if I had read the previous titles I still was able to figure out what was going on and liked the story. I plan on going back and starting at the beginning to find out how this world got to this point in its history.
The story was captivating, filled with action and a couple good steamy scenes. I liked Caleb, he is a warrior and isn’t about to change his ways just because he was thrust into this role of prophet. Lily was all button up and formal, taking her role as prophet very seriously. You could feel the chemistry between these two and I’m surprised that they didn’t spontaneously combust after holding back from each other for so many centuries.
Although I didn’t learn much, I learned enough so that the story made sense, I would like to explore this universe more. It looks like are at a pivotal moment in this world’s search for peace and I was intrigued to learn more, so I quickly looked up and ordered the first book in the series so I can catch up. It looks as if there are a lot of different types of creatures that are in conflict. The book also had a science fiction feel to it that doesn’t often show up in paranormal stories. The writing was well done and reminded me of authors such as Kim Harrison, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lara Adrian, and Alexandra Ivy.
