This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
With a dagger in her hand and vengeance on her mind, Darkhaven beauty Elise Chase prowls Boston’s streets in search of retribution against the Rogue vampires who took from her everything she cherished. Using an extraordinary psychic gift, she tracks her prey, well aware that the power she possesses is destroying her. She must learn to harness this gift, and for that she can turn to only one man—the deadliest of the Breed warriors, Tegan.
No stranger to loss, Tegan knows Elise’s pain. He knows fury, but when he slays his enemies it is with ice in his veins. He is perfect in his self-control, until Elise seeks his aid in her personal war. An unholy alliance is forged—a bond that will link them by blood and vow—and plunge them into a tempest of danger, desire, and the darkest passions of the heart. . .
I’m feeling so disappointed. Not even the ending of the book had me entertained. I was bored and frustrated out of my mind. The author’s style in writing isn’t for me. She uses an extreme amount of words to describe what’s happening. I wanted more dialog and a lot more action. What annoyed me the most though, was the fact that the author spend an awful amount of time on the two previous couple’s and I didn’t care for them then, and certainly not now? I did not need the level of details given to us about how they ended up together.
I never connected with the two main characters in this book, Teegan and Elise. I felt their romance was weak. I’m positive it was because of how the author wrote the book since it was a lot of tell, and rarely any show. We were told how they felt due to the narrating in the book, rather than hearing it from the characters themselves.
Like the other Male leads in the series, Teegan spend most of his time being a douche bag toward Elise, and like the other dumb girls, she decided to like him. Come on, how predictable are an author aloud to be before his or her repetition is ruined. They didn’t have chemistry and I don’t know what they see in each other.
As for our main Heroine, she started out decent and strong, but she ended up like the rest of the girls in the series, uninteresting and generic!
I don’t like the series, the author and all the similarities I find with other author’s works.
