” [Ms. Harrison gave] her fans including me, a good dose of the Elder Races’ world to satisfy our cravings.” ~ Under the Covers

To my surprise when I found out that Ms. Harrison had another novella for her Elder Races series. I thought the novellas were at an end. Well, it was a pleasant surprise and a good move for Ms. Harrison. She does such a great job with her short stories. She always include updates from the characters from previous books along with the ones she is showcasing.  Giving her fans including me, a good dose of the Elder Races world to satisfy our cravings.

In this case, the story is about Olivia and Sebastian who meets during their expedition to Carling’s magical island.  Both are hired to preserve and transport Carling’s precious library back to her.  Of course, being in such expedition would have mystery and danger and I think Ms. Harrison provided just that.  I enjoyed Olivia and Sebastian’s story. I thought it was exciting and full of tension between the. Their romance was bit quick but I can’t expect more since it’s a very short story. Of course, with this series; I always want more.We got some updates on Carling and Rune of course.  Khalil, whom I adore, was in this book a lot.

He is the Djinn mated to the Oracle, Grace.  I love that we see them beyond their happy ever after. Grace’s powers as the Oracle have grown quite a bit.  I’m sure she will play a big part on the scheme of this series.  But the most intriguing appearance is of Julian the Vampire King and Khalil’s daughter, Phaedra.  Their exchange was definitely intense.  It was a brief altercation but it was definitely note worthy.  That is a story waiting to happen and I am hoping for a full-length novel.

Overall, another great read!

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 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.
