The adventure of a lifetime might just end in turmoil, but when it includes meeting your future mate, who gives a hoot?
A Novella of the Elder Races
For a librarian with a focus on rare magic books, Olivia’s new job is a dream come true. She has been hired as part of a team to help manage the safe transportation of the collection of books owned by the Vampyre sorceress Carling Severan. The fact that the library is located on a mysterious island in an Other land only heightens the adventure.
Head of security for the expedition, Sebastian Hale is tired of his rootless life of adventure and finds himself attracted to the calm, beautiful librarian. But he is living a personal nightmare. He has been hit with a curse that is slowly taking away his sight, and he doesn’t know if he will survive the results.
But the powerful feelings growing between them, along with Sebastian’s inner turmoil, take a backseat when they learn there is a traitor lurking among their expedition team. With Elder Races politics and a priceless library on the line, they’ll have to rely on each other to survive the experience.
Warning: When a librarian who likes to nest meets an owl Wyr who has always lived for adventure, their romance won’t just be fly-by-night…
I love the Elder races series, I’m not sure how I missed the release of this one, but I found it now! I love Thea’s writing style and her beautiful turn of a phrase.
The suspense is good, the love scenes hot and the characters likeable. I enjoyed getting to see a glimpse of Grace and Kahlill, though I would have liked to have seen more of the characters from the other Elder races books, in a short it really wasn’t feasible.
I love the fact that Thea’s heroes and heroines are different in more ways than just species. FOr instance our hero, Sebastian in Wicked is only about 5’6″ tall! He is still a sexy hunk, but not your standard “tall, dark and handsome.” And Olivia is a self-proclaimed nerd. Love is for everyone! Not just the beautiful people. lol
Take a ride to “the Wicked” side!
