It was such a tradegy when Wellsie died, I remember reading it, dreading Tohr’s reaction when he found out, then sobbing like a girl when he did. So when I received Lover Reborn through the post I was both excited to see what would happen, how Tohr and No’One would connect and also anxious I mean Tohr and Wellsie just fit so well together how could No’One possibly live up to that? After having read it, I still have mixed feelings, this romance is so different from the others, vastly more complicated, more mature and though I was very pleased in the end sometimes it was painful to read their progression. Mainly I think because I am not a huge fan of No’One she is like a vampire doormat, her placid and accepting nature annoyed the shit out of me, although I know that is she had been any more aggressive the romance wouldn’t have happened in the first place. So you see; mixed feelings.
But, although the couple wasn’t my favourite what I adored about this book was the Band of Bastards. Love. Them. They have their very own Brotherhood which is both darker and more violent then the original and they are definietly stepping up their game in their bid to put Xcor on the throne. The face off between B.o.B and the Brotherhood is going to be explosive and even more tense because I like characters from both sides, one of the reasons I am jonesing for the next book is so I can see more of them. Also…Love Triangle Alert involving Throe, Xcor and a certain unnamed female….
Qhuinn and Blay Update. Man people are going to be pissed at some of the developments in this book, but how the last chapter ended with those two…we need the Qhuay book. NOW.
I loved this book, the romance wasn’t particularly my favourite but there are so many other things to love about it and all I can’t think about right now is getting my hands on the next book in the series.
Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
