Great world building from Rhys, although I have to admit it was slow going to begin with...but that's what you get from a great storyteller, an info d..Show More »ump right at the start of the series. 4.5 stars from me.
Obviously, I'm glad I didn't get caught up in the Human/Sidhe war, and as for the Unsidhe and their type of Hellhounds, forget it but Greg Tremblay could take me anywhere with that warm and enticing voice he has. ;)
Kai...well, an horrific upbringing doesn't even begin to cover it, but you'd have to read/listen to the story to understand what he's gone through, why he trusts so few people and that there's maybe more stuff we haven't learned about him yet **shudders**. As far as Ryder, Alexa and the rest of the Sidhe are concerned?? Well I'm fence sitting at the mo but that complete bitch of a grandmother deserves all the nasty stuff that can be wished down upon her...with bells on!! Looking forward to the next instalment Mad Lizard Mambo, which is out in September in e-book form. Me?? I'll wait for Mr Tremblay's version. :D
Another fabulous instalment of the Kai Gracen series from Ms Ford, narrated perfectly as per usual by Mr Tremblay. The world-building is phenomenal, t..Show More »he sheer amount of nasty creatures able to bite your head off or just plain old eat you is staggering [and I include huge worms and those bloody awful black dogs...again!!], but this time around we also have treachery, murder and extremely unwelcome visits from relatives [of sorts, and those of you that have read this series know the vile monster that Kai was created by, and what his known siblings are like].
Kai is huge of heart and braveness personified, and Ryder falls in love with him even more...there is NO sex whatsoever in this story, but we can only hope that in the next story Ryder and his ainle Kai give in to their mutually acknowledged heat, and one thing's for certain...it will be explosive!! 5 stars from me.
