Best of the Elder Races Novella yet!!! For such a short story, this book has a lot of content. I am very happy with this book. I feel as if Ms. Harrison read my mind and gave me what I wanted. This book had it all; good recap, good flow of writing, humor, romance, and glimpses of my favorite characters.Dr. Seremela Telemar is our heroine and a fine one at that. We first see her in Storm’s Heart then Serpents Kiss, both playing a role using her medical expertise. In this book, she takes time off for personal reasons. Her niece, Vetta had run away and she is on a mission to bring her back (Vetta, by the way is the same girl who had stolen the tarot cards from the bus at the end of the last novella, Natural Evil). Brave and independent as she is, Seremela’s plan is to save her all by her lonesome.

However, our alpha hero will not let her go by herself. The Sexy, rich, debonair Duncun Turner is hard to turn away. He is the very same progeny/lawyer who works for Carling and Rune. Knowing of his underlying attraction for Seremela, this hero will go out of his way to travel with her to Devil’s Gate, save the day and fall in love while doing so.

As I said, in my opinion this is the best of the novellas yet. I enjoyed every bit of the plot and romance. Seremela and Duncan new exactly what they wanted and as adults, just went for it, with priorities taken care of. Ms. Harrison also did a wonderful job on making Seremela feminine in appearance instead of the ugly perceptions medusas are given. The long adorable snakes that went down to her hips are what did it for me.

And what I loved the most is how the past characters/plot were indirectly wrapped around this story. We had direct contacts with the main characters from the full-length books. Ms. Harrison gave us bits of Rune and Julian. We also hear of current situations of Carling/Rune and Niniane/Tiago.

There’s also a lot of new names that came up. But two stood out for me. A djinn named Malphas and Xanteh Tenanye, very intriguing characters. and I’m betting we’d see more of them later. I can’t wait to see what Ms Harrison will have for us in the next installments.

About Thea Harrison

I write paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and other stuff. I taught myself to read when I was four. That was around the time I tried to ride my tricycle to work. I wasn't sure where work was, but I knew it had to be interesting if people went there every day. Now I combine my love of books with work, and I don't have to ride my tricycle to get there. My Elder Races series began May, 2011. You can also find me on Twitter and Facebook!

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
