Series: Doomsday Brethren #3
Published by Simon Spotlight Entertainment
You know how in every series there’s one tortured hero? Well this is it! Let me introduce you to Isdernus Rykard… better known as ICE! He is also considered a mad man by most everyone. He’s from a lower class, has been a warrior for centuries, joined the Doomsday Brethren after a personal tragedy and now there’s bad blood between him and Bram. Funny thing is, his mate is Bram’s sister.
But there are many reasons why being with Sabelle is unattainable to him, not just that her brother would never approve of him in particular because he hates him but also because she’s one of Merlin’s descendents, he’s a Deprived. A mating between them would be frowned upon. When it comes to protecting her and the Doomsday Diary after they are attacked, he can’t fight instinct…and he does what comes natural, he Calls to her.
This is definitely my favorite book in the series so far. The main characters were both amazing and they also sacrificed for the greater good. Ice is…well…..in one word, intense. I just want to find my own Ice. His loyalty to the Brethren, to his family, to his people, but most of all to the woman he loves, are unparalleled. Sabelle I felt changed a bit in this book, where I saw her a bit more kick ass in previous books she wasn’t as much in this one. But as a couple, the best!
And now here comes the kicker…you know how much I love Bram’s character, correct? Well I wanted to kick his arse into the next book! The way he treated Ice and looked down on him, how he turned his back on him centuries ago which is what caused their issues, and even how he wanted to manipulate his sister in this book. Arghhhhhh he has some redeeming to do in my eyes.
You know who doesn’t have to do any redeeming? Shock! He’s badass, he’s good, he’s bad, you don’t know if you can trust him, and he’s sexy as hell.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
