He's a Wyr warrior, a god of storms. She's the heir to the Dark Fae throne. But desire will bring both to their knees in this all-new Novel of the Elder Races.

During the rule of her murderous Dark Fae uncle, Thistle "Tricks" Periwinkle found sanctuary among the Wyr in New York. Her ethereal beauty and sparkling personality won the hearts of the public, but after her uncle's death, there are those who don't want to see her ascend to the throne.

Able to wield thunder and lightning, Wyr sentinel Tiago Black Eagle has ruled the skies for centuries. His massive build and thunderous power make him one of the Wyr's best weapons. And he's sent to protect Tricks when she's almost assassinated in Chicago.

Soon, both Tiago and Tricks will fall prey to the stormy hunger that engulfs them—a passion that will shake the very foundation of all the worlds.

Why did I read this? And am I glad I did?

I recently reread Dragon Bound and fell back in love with the Elder Races. I was not in any way disappointed by the second book in this series. I laughed. I cried. I blushed. I was on the edge of my seat. All the things that make a perfect escape read.

The pacing of the romance was a little slower in this one and I liked the added tension. It worked because the characters were honest with each other. This is one of the rare books in which the leading lady and alpha male don’t keep secrets. Yes, she may stew over something for a night and he gives her the space to do that. However, the next day he approaches it again and they work through the issue. This book could have had a disaster of a love hiccup if either one of them would have been less open with their fears. Now don’t this lead you to believe that Tricks and Tiago didn’t sizzle. Oh they very much so did.

I really enjoyed the added mystery to this one. In Dragon Bound we know who the bad guy is and what he wants. We are never really sure who is after Tricks and that ups the anxiety.

The addition of more side characters had me itching for future books. I was already crushing on Rune prior to this one and CANNOT wait to jump into his story. The Nightkind were very intriguing! I even found myself growing attached to Aryal (who I wasn’t fond of in the first book).

Favorite Quotes

He snatched the vodka bottle from her and took a swig. She watched with acute interest as shock shot across his face. He gagged and spat the mouthful out on the carpet. He glared at the bottle. “Bubble gum-flavored vodka? Bubble gum?

“What? It’s good.” She reached for the bottle.

He held it out of her reach. “No way.”

She scowled. “That’s my dinner. You give it back.”


He framed her face and drove his mouth down on her as he drove in her body. “So this is called love,” he gasped. “La petite mort.”

Drenched in gold, she lay transfixed by the surprise of him, the language of his body, the poetry of his mind.

La petite mort. The little death. More than a climax, a spiritual release.

– I’ve always loved the French translation for climax.

    YAY! So happy you enjoyed Tricks and Tiago. *sigh* I loved their intensity and honesty, as well. I especially loved Tiago’s intensity. heh.

    I want to reread this series now…

  2. Oh. ARYAL. She’s an interesting character, isn’t she? She continues to play a role in future books–and the next Elder Races book is hers. Can’t WAIT for that.

    I’m glad you enjoyed Storm’s Heart. Here’s to enjoying Serpent’s Kiss, too! 🙂

    YEAH TARA!!!! I cannot get enough of this series. You know who actually turned out to be my favorite? I love them all obviously, but Khalil totally one me over with his adorableness. I don’t believe you’ve met him yet. He’s book 4. I was thinking I wouldn’t care for his book because he’s not one of Dragos’s team, but I was wrong. I can’t wait for you to read Rune’s book and then his:)

    Also, the honesty between Tricks and Tiago was a highlight for me too. I get really frustrated when couples keep secrets, and I love that they didn’t:)

    • Tara SG says:

      I read the descriptions of the upcoming books to get an idea of who I’d be seeing again soon, and I have to admit that I was worried about Khalil’s book because he wasn’t part of the Wyr group. Now I’m really excited to meet him!

  4. I reread this one recently and found myself LOVING it to pieces. There were so many little moments that worked for me. SO MANY. Now I want to reread book 3. I SHOULD DO THAT!
