“If you are looking for a fantasy series with unique world building and great slow burn romances, look no further.”
~ Under the Covers

This was the book I didn’t know I needed. The Embraced series has been one of my favorite fantasy romances the past few years and when I saw we were getting more in this world I was extremely excited. I will add in a warning right off the bat. While this is a new “series” it’s very much not a standalone. I wouldn’t consider this book even a spin off. It’s just literally the next installment in the Embraced series. We are still following one of the main friends getting her HEA and it very much picks up on things that happened in one of the previous books. So with that in mind, I do recommend you read the previous books in the Embraced series before reading this one so you can understand what’s going on.⁠

Like I said, this is one of my favorite fantasy romance series and this one takes place in the Kingdom of the Elves which is new. I really enjoyed that as well as the hero’s affinity to wood and his ability to communicate with trees or make any type of wood do anything he wanted! But comparing this book to the previous ones I would say is a little less developed. Both in terms of overall world building as well as the gift/power of the main characters. The heroine’s gift was almost non-existent or used.⁠

But I still enjoyed the story. A little more laid back and simple, the romance a tad insta lovey but it didn’t bother me. And definitely a slow burn romance. Which made sense in the middle of what was happening around them.⁠

I’m probably more excited about the next book which is finally about Brody.⁠

If you are looking for a fantasy series with unique world building and great slow burn romances, look no further. Every installment here will be a good read including this one.⁠

About Kerrelyn Sparks

Apparently, she has issues with reality. After writing 16 books about vampires and shifters, Kerrelyn has now completely gone off the deep end and wound up on another planet.

Although Kerrelyn is best known (so far) for the Love at Stake series, which has hit as high as number 5 on the New York Times list and 22 on the USA Today list, she hopes her readers will love The Embraced as much as they did her merry band of vamps and shifters.

Kerrelyn lives with her family in the Greater Houston area of Texas.

I have to be in the mood for slow burns but I’m intrigued by unique world building.

Thanks for the review Francesca

Definitely can’t wait for Brody’s story. Only Mauve left, what will we do when all the girls have their HEA’s!
