Summary

The adventure of a lifetime might just end in turmoil, but when it includes meeting your future mate, who gives a hoot?

A Novella of the Elder Races

For a librarian with a focus on rare magic books, Olivia's new job is a dream come true. She has been hired as part of a team to help manage the safe transportation of the collection of books owned by the Vampyre sorceress Carling Severan. The fact that the library is located on a mysterious island in an Other land only heightens the adventure.

Head of security for the expedition, Sebastian Hale is tired of his rootless life of adventure and finds himself attracted to the calm, beautiful librarian. But he is living a personal nightmare. He has been hit with a curse that is slowly taking away his sight, and he doesn't know if he will survive the results.

But the powerful feelings growing between them, along with Sebastian's inner turmoil, take a backseat when they learn there is a traitor lurking among their expedition team. With Elder Races politics and a priceless library on the line, they'll have to rely on each other to survive the experience.

Warning: When a librarian who likes to nest meets an owl Wyr who has always lived for adventure, their romance won't just be fly-by-night...

Love me some Elder Races!!!

I totally love me some Elder Races...the whole series is simply AWESOMENESS!!!

I like the books, far better than the novellas, but the one novella about Dragos was great...

This one, was ..... interesting and fulfilling with the Elder Races overall story... but the chemistry and smexyness of the books is lacking in the novellas..

Totally worth it if you have already invested in the Elder Races series... An easy skip if you have not...

Narration of course was totally on point! Eastlake is the Elder Races...

Great buy or sale... don't credit this... save your credit for a full book!

Sebastian can get wicked with me anytime.

Out of all the novella's that Thea Harrison wrote this is one of the best ones that was written about random people in the Elder series. This statement does not include all the short stories about Dragos and Pia, because those to me are only an extension of their original story. For such a short story this is a great little romance with enough adventure and action to keep me happy. The characters are great and this story gives me a hankering to read the rest of the series again. I would like to see Faedra the Djinn to have her own story, but I guess we will see. Narrator is good, I have enjoyed her from the beginning.

Thea Harrison does it again!

Thea Harrison doesn't know how to write a bad or boring story.
This was fun and satisfying. Her world of nightkind is so well written, and Harrison never disappoints with original characters and romantic pairings. Altho a bit pricy for less-than 4 hours, it is worth it. You'll love it!

Fun short story

This has all the elements of the longer books...great characters, good story, danger, romance. I don't usually bother with novellas. I may reconsider and look into them. Sometimes I don't have the time to do a whole book.

Loving Elder Races novellas

I love the fact that Thea Harrison takes us off quick jaunts to see what happens to other characters we meet along the way in the primary Elder Races story line.

It makes the series seem more "alive and growing". Kudos to you Mrs. Harrison! Keep them coming :)

short and sweet

I loved hearing about Grace and her new life as the Oracle. Part of me wanted this story to be fully developed but it was nice to have a short story to listen to in an evening and morning session
