Length: 16 hrs and 53 mins
Series: Brides of the Kindred, Book 2
Publisher: Evangeline Anderson Books
I really liked the progression of the plot with the AllFather and the Scourge, unfortunately, other parts of the book were drawn out so far my mind started to wander. I get it, Sophie has major issues from her past and is unwilling to even try with Sylvan. I get having fears, but he had to prove himself way too much. He was a touch stilted in his narratives, but you get used to it after a time.
This is a spicy read, although most of the story for the leads is just foreplay. It has to do with the whole Mating Bond, I find that is a pattern for this series, saving the sex for the end. There is plenty of steam in the beginning, we get an extra naughty wedding night for Baird and Olivia. I knew he had that Dom thing in him!
The audiobook was once again narrated by Anne Johnstonbrown, who I thoroughly enjoyed! She has a great smooth tone and swift pace that helped move the story at slower moments. I enjoy her energy throughout the read. She has a terrific balance in the male and female voices. Definitely hope she stays with the series.
The narrative is mixed between the two leads and then supporting characters as well. It was great for understanding the motivations and endless issues. While I could see one of the past events as a roadblock for the couple, the medical one was annoying. I just wanted to shake some sense into her, because he was just so terrific. The scenes with Kat and the twins were interesting and made me salivate for their story. I enjoy these books, however, I find myself preferring the storyline and wishing for less steam. I know, it was a surprise for me too. All the back and forth repetition distracted from things in my opinion.
I am still eager for the next book in the series. I enjoy the plotlines, they are very intriguing! BTW, beware tears at the end! You see it coming a mile away, still it pulls those heart stings! Oh the feels.
