Author: Adonis Devereux
Source: Requested Review
Genre: Erotic Fantasy
Release Date: June 4th 2012
Found sleeping beneath the ice by a dying king, Riane has always known she was different. She draws men to her, her every movement a call to sex, but no man has ever stirred her blood until Kiltarin, the son of the God-King, comes to her. He brings color to her life, and she brings unspeakable sexual delight to his.
Her beauty gives him courage to overcome his fear of his own immortality. But her true identity is still unknown, and when the secret of her birth is revealed, Kiltarin fears he cannot compete with the new rivals for her affection. And Riane cannot soothe his fears, because for her, love comes twice.
My Review -
Each time I read Adonis Deverueux's books, which are set in the wondrous world of Gilalion, I always find myself lost in the beautiful details, sights, sounds and powerful emotions. I always feel that I am reading a Greek tragedy mixed with the complexities of Lord of the Rings and the various clans and lands as Game of Thrones.
I have to honestly say that when I finished reading this book I was very moved and full of conflicting emotions ranging from joy, contentment and satisfied to pain, sorrow and dismay. Let this sway you in a positive way as the book stirred me with many strong emotions and left me feeling conflicted with how it ended. The ending was tied up, but not in a neat bow because I wanted a more in-depth explanation as to why one character in particular decided on their course of action.
Riane and Kiltarin's story is a highly erotic one full of great passion, devotion, and loyalty, however, their relationship is put to the test several times in the story which brings with it instances of sorrow, despair and a future in question.
I loved Riane and Kiltarin as a couple. When they explored together who Riane truly was and their discoveries lead them on a path that could tear them apart I was overwhelmed by Kiltarin's love for her. There were moments in the story when Kiltarin's rivals for Riane tried to pry her away from Kiltarin and I personally found it difficult to accept some of her reactions. Again this is just a testament of how well written the book is that it is able to draw such strong emotions from me.
I highly recommend this book which could be read as a stand alone, but characters who have appeared in previous books are mentioned, which if you read first will provide you with a greater appreciation and understanding of the world and the characters.
Be warned this a very hot, erotic book with M/F/M menage, anal sex/play, sex toys, and multiple partners which will result in the need for the reader to take multiple cold showers.
