Book Review

As you will know if you've read my review of Twin Flames, the first book in this series, I couldn’t wait for this sequel to be published. And now that it has I am very happy to say I loved it just as much as the first book.  While still firmly founding this world in Sumerian legends, Lexi Ander adds more of the Lycan lore and a few new elements, seamlessly weaving them into the story of Tristan and Ushna. Not only do these characters come even more alive, the twists and turns their story takes are amazing and certainly kept me glued to the pages.

Tristan has more than a few revelations in this installment. While he previously began to see that not all was as it seemed, he now has to deal with some really shocking events and a revision of his understanding of how the world, and the gods and goddesses, actually work. His love for Ushna grows as they face adversity together, and that is a good thing, since he and his self-image are severely tested by the end of this book. What a delightful surprise that was!

Ushna really comes into his own in this book. He stands by Tristan, but he also adds his own personal perspective and way of doing things. It enables both of them to develop a partnership that fits them and their needs, one that is truly their own, not based on how others relate to their partners. This was an unexpected, but very welcome development as far as I am concerned.

This series started as an epic fantasy/paranormal drama, and continues to progress into the arena of inventive, new worlds with their own rules. I thoroughly enjoyed all of this second story! If you like ancient legends brought to life in a modern way, if you enjoy tales with a mix of devious and delightful twists and turns, and if you're ready to suffer and triumph along with the main characters, then by all means, go and buy this book! Again, I cannot wait for the next sequel!
