NIGHT’S HONOR leaves the usual Elder Races Wyrkind behind and takes us within the cloistered walls of the Vampyre enclaves. More of a classic romance and straight up thriller than anything else, Tess and Xavier Dave danger from a few avenues before the action spills back out into the greater world of Elder Races politics.
Series: Elder Races
The love story between Dragos and Pia Cuelebre extends far past the initial meet-cute and sexual chemistry. Through marriage, child birth, and public scrutiny, these two newly weds are as fun to read about now as when they were coming to terms with their mutual attraction.
An interesting character vignette, in PIA SAVES THE DAY our favorite couple face each other again, back at square one. The first time these two fell in love, Pia was the hunted. This time, she must use all her cunning to get close to a cranky, injured, amnesiac dragon… or lose the man of her dreams.
Thea Harrison’s Elder Races series takes familiar romance and paranormal tropes to a level unparalleled in the genre, and DRAGOS TAKES A HOLIDAY is a great example of her prowess. This story shows us a glimpse behind the Happily-Ever-After curtain, after Pia marries the powerful, sexy billionaire, after her child is born, after her ordinary life is exposed to the limelight.
I was apprehensive going into KINKED as I found Aryal plain mean, surly, and abrasive in the previous books of the Elder Races. At first I continued to be seriously annoyed with her as she was super stubborn and generally horrible to people but after spending time in her POV I grew to understand her better and even began to like her
With LORD’S FALL Harrison proves that chemistry can get even hotter in life after Happily Ever After. The Elder Races series is so much more than your average Paranormal Romance, and with this fifth installment Harrison takes me back to my all time favorite couple, Dragos and Pia.
With any great series, it’s hard for each news book to stand up to high expectations. Add to that a first book that has joined the ranks of my “re-read favorites”, and I was paralyzed with anticipation (and anxiety) when I picked up ORACLE’S MOON. No one is more excited than I to find that no only did ORACLE’S MOON stand up to how much I enjoyed SERPENT’S KISS, it has joined DRAGON BOUND as a favorite that I know I’ll be enjoying again.
A short, sweet little novella to tide me over until the next full length Elder Races book comes out, TRUE COLORS emphasizes the “romance” in Paranormal Romance. Though we get a street level view of two Wyrs with normal jobs, and the introduction of a new, unexpected Wyr breed, the focus in TRUE COLORS is more a universal humanity of attraction rather than the Elder Races mythology.
