Planet Dragos (Elder Races, #9.8) by Thea Harrison 3.5 Star Review!
Planet Dragos - Thea Harrison

Pia’s latest pregnancy has become a daily challenge, her relationship with Dragos strained with argument. That hasn’t stopped them from achieving a compromise and traveling to Las Vegas to celebrate their friend Rune’s wedding to his mate Carling.

From the moment they arrive, the trip goes awry. Death walks in Vegas, and Pia is kidnapped as an ancient enemy makes a move to destroy the Great Beast once and for all.

But the Great Beast has other plans.

On Planet Dragos everything goes the way he arranges it—unless someone decides to cross him, and God help them then, because he doesn’t know how to back down, and he doesn’t ever, ever let up….

Review

 

Another great adventure with Pia and Dragos. 

Pia is really With Child. And we get the fun of late stage preggerness.

This novella moves the series into a new arc and is great that way.

And the new baby is everything. Plus, powerful Pia, Sexy Dragos, some new beings and old friends.

 

I was given this book for my honest review. So, there you have it.

Storm's Heart (Elder Races #2)
Storm's Heart (Elder Races #2) - Thea Harrison 4.25 stars

This was a fun audio book, and I enjoyed learning more about the world of the Elder Races. Full review to follow

Review
I really enjoyed Dragon Bound, the first book in the Elder Races, but I haven’t had time to pick up Book Two. Then along came Audible and their Romance Package, and soon I was listening away to Storm’s Heart during my short commutes around town. I listened to most of this, but caved near the end and borrowed the book from the library so I could gobble it up and be done. It was a fun read!

Niniane, aka Tricks, has been living with the Wyr for two hundred years. After fleeing from her home the night her uncle killed her family and took over the throne of the Dark Fae, she asked Dragos for sanctuary. Acting as the head of PR for Dragos’ business empire, Niniane has lived in fear of her uncle finding her and murdering her. When Urien unwisely kidnaps Dragos’ mate in Book One, Dragos kills him. Now Niniane is forced to do her duty, declare herself as the Queen of the Dark Fae, and leave the Wyr behind. When an attempt is made on her life, Tiago, a Wyr Sentinel, vows to protect her with his life. If he can find her, since she’s fled and nobody has heard from her in days.

I really enjoyed this. The audio version is lively and just plain fun. Niniane is at a huge disadvantage, having been away from the Dark Fae court for hundreds of years. She doesn’t understand all of the power dynamics, and she certainly doesn’t know who she can trust. Her cousin tried to seduce her, and when she rebuffed his advances, attempted to kill her instead. She is heartbroken that she can’t even trust her family to have her back. The only people she can trust unconditionally are the Wyr, and her people will have a fit if she continues her friendship with them. Hello, their leader just killed their king, as wicked as he may have been. What a pickle she’s gotten herself into.

Tiago is an uber alpha, and he’s promised to protect her with his life. The thunderbird, he is a hair away from coming unglued and giving into his darker side. He is insanely jealous, which did get on my nerves, and I had a little problem with how old he was compared to Niniane, but since they are both paranormal creatures who can’t really exist – I just let it go. Still, it was so much like cradle robbing. Ugh! Just let it go!

The action was intense, the smexy scenes were steamy, and I really enjoyed the supporting cast. I’ll keep reading (or listening) to this series because I find it so much fun.

Devil's Gate

 

As a coroner, medusa Seremela Telemar has always felt more comfortable chatting over a dead body than over drinks. But when her wild niece, Vetta, runs off to Devil's Gate, a lawless town that has sprung up overnight in a modern-day gold rush, she knows she has to extricate her before the rebellious girl gets into real trouble. Though she's confident in her head snakes' ability to defend her against attackers, Seremela is still a bit nervous about braving this modern-day Wild West by herself.

 

Vampyre Duncan Turner is not about to let his new co-worker go into that chaos alone. His Vampyric power and lawyer smarts make him the perfect ally, and the fact that he already had his eye on Seremela for more personal reasons, doesn't hurt matters. Any romantic thoughts pull up short, however, when they arrive at Devil's Gate and learn Vetta is set to hang by morning.

 

In order to save Vetta and themselves, Seremela and Duncan are going to have to fight fire with force and magic with fangs. And pray they make it out of Devil's Gate alive.

 

Hunter's Season

 

As a palace guard and assassin for the Dark Fae, Xanthe always wore a mask, hiding her emotions to do her duty. But when her identity is compromised, she trades undercover work for guarding Queen Niniane - a position that often brings her in contact with Chancellor Aubrey Riordan. Aubrey's trust is shattered. A year ago his wife tried to assassinate their new queen in his name, a betrayal of everything he believes in. And now an attack on his life is proof the dark conspiracy is not yet over. Although injured and weak, Aubrey can't help but be drawn to this shy assassin and loyal protector. Xanthe is everything Naida wasn't, and the passion she stirs in him is something he thought had long passed him by.

I read Devil’s Gate & Hunter’s Season when they where first published and loved both. I’ve been on an audiobook kick and decided to try out Ms. Harrison’s Elder Races series in Audio.

 

Destiny’s Tarot has the Elder Races Novellas Devil’s Gate #4.6 & Hunter’s Season #4.7 on it. Here we get to see some previously introduced characters that we meet in the Elder Races series. Even if you haven’t read anElder Races book you can still pick up these novellas, but I would recommend at least reading Books 1 & 2, so you can have a better sense of what is going on in the world. These novellas featured in Destiny’s Tarot are fun, entertaining, and each have an HEA.

 

Below is my review for Devil’s Gate & Hunter’s Season:

 

Devil’s Gate

 

Devil’s Gate features Seremela a Medusa and Duncan a Vampyre. These characters are secondary characters introduced somewhere along the line in the Elder Race series.

 

As for the story, their is no shortage of action, adventure, and danger. The romance is sweet between these two and their is some major sexual tension that will combust by the end. I also have to point out that when we think of Medusa we don’t think nice creatures, so I have to say I like how the author portrayed her Medusa’s. They weren’t creepy, but came of different and noteworthy.

 

Narrator: Sophie Eastlake did a wonderful job with the voices and bringing out the danger and attraction; between Seremela and Duncan. I will say Duncan’s voice was ok, not unpleasant, just a little to raspy for my liking and what I pictured him sounding like, but this didn’t deter me from enjoying this novella again.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

 

*****

 

Hunter’s Season

 

Hunter’s Season features Xanthe a Dark Fae Assassin and Aubrey a Dark Fae Chancellor. These characters are secondary characters introduced in the Elder Race series. We meet Xanthe in Devil’s Gate and Aubrey in Storm’s Heart. These two come together to create a lovely and passionate romance.

 

This novella was sensational with a heavenly HEA. Ms. Harrison delivers a beautiful blossoming romance; between two very different characters. Their romance builds slowly, is sweet, and adorable. I love how the author put so much attention on their romance.

 

I adored Hunter’s Season. The conclusion was satisfying, the romance is charming, and we get a little danger and intrigue too. Harrison shows us just how much love can truly heal.

 

Narrator: I enjoyed the audio narration for Hunter’s Season. Sophie Eastlake did a superb job with the voices and bring out the blossoming romance between Xanthe and Aubrey.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

 

The Elder Race series brings us a verity of unique supernaturals, worlds, and so much more. It’s an entering series to read or listen too. I highly recommend diving in.

True Colors: A Novella of the Elder Races
True Colors: A Novella of the Elder Race... True Colors: A Novella of the Elder Races - Thea Harrison True Colors is #3.5 in the Elder Races series.

I’ve previously read True Colors when it first came out on 2011. It has been republished with a new cover, but the content is still the same.

I really like the Elder Races series and anything that is published I devour with great relish.

Ms. Harrsion has created a fun and unique world. With a verity of supernaturals. This novel is short, to the point, and gives you just a taste of what she has created. Their’s danger, romance, and passion. Both characters are likable. It’s an insta-love romance. They both know they are mates and so they hit it off right away. The murder mystery was nice, but wrapped up rather fast and without a big explosion.

I enjoyed this novel, but I wish their was more.

Rated: 3 Stars
