The Reckoners by Doranna Durgin
The Reckoners - Doranna Durgin

Although I have no problems following the storyline of other books this book was difficult to read for me because I found the conversations hard to follow. Maybe it´s just my lacking English but the dialogues between the characters were tiresome to comprehend for me.

 

The plot was confusing at times and the added thoughts of a creature called Skylar didn´t enhance the clarity what was going on – or I just didn´t get. I never figured out what kind of creature Skylar was or the bond it shared with Trevarr but maybe that´s better explained in the following books of the series.

 

Trevarr the hero of this book is a mystery-monger to the point of being annoying and I could understand Garrie´s frustration to be left in the dark without information. The blooming attraction between the two main characters was slow and nothing really happened except some steamy kisses. I didn´t mind the slow building of their relationship I even prefer it most of the times but it didn´t ring true for me and I wasn´t really convinced about it. Plus there´s the exciting plotline of a seemingly jealous ex-lover thrown into the mix maybe to make the lovestory a bit more complicated for the future – but that´s just my assumption.

 

Garrie is a tough kick-ass heroine with a big mouth who often doesn´t think before she talks which is a charcater trait I´m not very fond of I admit. That´s surely one of the reasons I couldn´t warm up to her.

 

I suppose this book wasn´t meant for me and I´m not continuing this series because my interest in the characters and their future adventures is only minimal. Not every book is for every reader ...

The Nymph King by Gena Showalter
The Nymph King - Gena Showalter

Valerian the nymph king of Atlantis has a problem. To strengthen his men after a war against the dragons they need sex. A lot of sex. But their own females aren´t available and so Valerian plans to go to the surface (Atlantis is situated beneath the ocean) to get human females for his nymph warriors. Shaye Holling is at her mother´s wedding at a Florida beach when suddenly warriors emerge out of the water, kidnap every single woman and take them back to Atlantis. While every woman is delighted by the beauty and sensuality of the nymphs and can´t get quick enough into their beds only Shaye and an other girl aren´t happy to be held prisoner and resist their kidnapper. Valerian who has at once recognized Shaye as his mate is confused – it has never happened before that a woman did not want him at first sight..

If you like a cynical heroine, an irresistible nymph king who wants nothing more than to show a girl with a fear of relationships the joys of sex and a girl who fights her would-be seducer with all her might and very suddenly gives in – that is the book for you. The plot made me yawn even the supposed villains the dragons are a pathetic lot and have no chance at all against the powerful king. Perfection is boring, let me tell you.

My needs of sappy romances is satisfied for while…
