Synopsis from Goodreads:
An unrequited love that has ripped her to pieces.
Delara has loved Waleron for over a century. Their intense chemistry is sensual, gripping, irresistible. But tragedy struck, and after sixty-one years of believing he was dead, Waleron returns a tortured man. He claims the man she loves is dead, yet the undeniable sexual tension still pulls them together.
“I am no longer the man you love, maitagarri. I am incapable of it.”
Waleron has given his oath to protect the Senses. He will sacrifice everything for them. But there is one Senses he has vowed to protect more than any other—Delara. He will do anything to make certain she is safe, even if it means he must deny her the love they once shared.
She is the hunted.
Delara’s life is in jeopardy and Waleron will do anything to protect her. But he never suspected that Xamien, the man he brings to help protect her is way more important to her than he ever knew.
Torn between two men and hunted by another, Delara must fight her hardest battle—herself.
FALL can be read as a stand-alone, however it is highly recommended to read the 1st two books to completely understand the love story.
I love how Paterson goes back and fills in the blacks between Waleron and Delara (and by default, the Talde as a whole) in this novel. You get to know these characters on multiple different levels and at multiple different times throughout. The entire cast of characters becomes more developed throughout this novel as you find out more about their past connections and how they all came together in the present. By this point in the series these very well developed characters, who have come more and more alive with each installment, are like family both to each other and to the reader. It’s amazing to see them together and how they got there. I also appreciate the sheer number of drool worthy Alpha male characters in the novel, and the fact that their significant others are equally strong females. It makes for a brilliant story.
Overall, this was by far my favorite installment in the Senses trilogy. It gave me the book hangover of the century. All I could think about was the need to stay with the characters and read it again. I found myself looking for possible hints to sequels so it didn’t have to end.
