Elise is fractured inside, stained by a past she refuses to remember. Merrick is scarred both inside and out, a half-breed with a brutal background, at home nowhere in the universe. Now they are tied together by an unstable bond which could kill them both. Their journey will take them to the lawless planet of Rageron - the wildest of all the Kindred worlds. There, in the deep blue jungles of an alien world, Elise must bare her soul and relive the horror that nearly killed her.

This series us fabulous! the author keeps you interested and while telling the new story updates the previous characters stories too by incorporating them in the new. well written and with depth and feeling.

Nadiah has the Sight: the ability to see into the future. But the one thing she can't see is how she's ever going to be free of the blood bond her parents forced her into when she was only six. Her fiancé is an evil bastard who delights in torturing her, and her only way out of a loveless marriage is for a Kindred warrior to challenge the hated bond. But Nadiah has no warrior to challenge for her, she just has Rast.

What I love about this series is the intertwining of the stories of the various characters from the previous and the next in the series! It makes them all come across as a community and the characters grow as the story progresses!
This one is the story of Nadia, Sylvan's cousin, and Adam Rast, a detective we met in previous books looking for missing girls. They meet and Rast feels something for her and then a blood bonded fiance tries to hurt her - which enrages Rast. This is their story but it also starts Merrick and Elise off and continues with the previous brides.

I loved the book again - this time via audio and highly recommend it to all

Chris Rankin is a doctor, a specialist in emergency medicine at Cheltenham Hospital, but a doctor who also has health problems. A smartly dressed man has been found unconscious at the local racecourse and is rushed to the hospital, where he subsequently dies. But who is he? Where does he come from? He had no form of identification on him, and no one claims the body.

While I took time to listen to this I did enjoy the tale. It is another very fine one from Felix Francis, following in the fine tradition set by his father.
This one centers around an emergency doctor who stumbles onto a betting conspiracy and leads herself and her family into trouble.
Do yourself a favor and get this book today. you will not regret it

my biggest concern with this was the over use of the phrase "he/she lost his/her words". There are other ways of saying the same thing.
Otherwise, I loved it and look forward to the next
