Elder Races #5
Paranormal Romance - Urban Fantasy
November 6th 2012
In the latest Novel of the Elder Races, two mates find themselves on different paths, torn between their duty to the Wyr and the passion that binds them…
Before she met Dragos, half-human/half-Wyr Pia Giovanni was alone and on the run. Now she’s mated, pregnant and heading south to repair the Wyrs’ frayed relationship with the Elves. Being separated from Dragos is painful, but for the good of the Wyr demesne they need to figure out how to be partners—in more places than just the bedroom.
In New York to preside over the Sentinel Games, Dragos is worried about his mate, but knows that finding two replacement sentinels is essential to show the rest of the Elder Races just how strong and brutal the Wyr demesne can be. But as the Games heat up, Pia’s negotiations with the Elves take a turn for the dangerous, straining her bond with Dragos and threatening everything they hold dear…
~ 5 Lord’s Fall Stars ~
Lord’s Fall is book five in the Elder Races series by Thea Harrison. So much awesomeness happens in this novel. It brings the reader back to the characters that started it all, Pia and Dragos.
These two have challenges they go through together and separately. It was interesting to watch them learn to work as partners, not as employee/employer. Dragos exceeds this otherworldly power and his dragon nature comes out a lot and Pia still keeps him on his toes and try’s to balance out his more powerful nature.
Most of the book is the challenges, struggles, and accomplishments that our characters deal with. Pia goes away in this book to help repair the damaged treats with the fae. She must stand on her own. Dragos has to deal with the Sentinel Games and finding two new Sentinels. Life is changing for both. We see how hard it is for them to be apart, the struggles come through well along with the accomplishments that each them needs to do.
Some interesting developments happen in the fae dimension. We also learning something truly interesting about Dragos though it may not be much of a surprise, but it still felt significant. I also liked seeing that Dragos and Rune are starting to patch things up. They may never be what they once where, but they can be something else.
What really made this such a fabulous book is that Pia and Dragos work to make their relationship more. Even with them mated and a little baby on the way, it doesn’t mean a happy every after. This novel gives us the happens after that happy every after and what they experience.
Lord’s Fall is an epic story full of mayhem, myth, and love.
