Series: Scimtar Magi #3
Author: Zoe Forward
Published: November 21/14 by The Wild Rose Press
Genre: paranormal/fantasy romance
Back Cover Blurb:
Kane will never turn his back on Astrid, even when she gets inducted into the Scimitar magi, an organization he knows well and respects. His gorgeous ex-spy partner might push him away at every turn, but that’s too bad. He’s exactly the man she needs to protect her life and her heart. All he has to do is convince her that when something feels this right, you don’t let it go.
Astrid’s strong, witty, at times funny personality is endearing. Her need to take care of herself and those she loves, and the ability to do so in all circumstances, is fantastic. Kane’s chivalry clashes with his knowledge that Astrid can take care of herself, and is frankly, medieval at times. Ah, the things you come to know about these characters by the end of the novel. You’ve really got to feel for Zannis & his situation, regardless of the way that he blunders about it at times. The gap between what’s happening and what he believes is happening leads to some confusion on his part, but makes him all the more endearing to readers, in a larger than life, over the top kind of way. I definitely didn’t see the Kane-Astrid-Zannis love triangle turning out the way that it did, but it was utterly fantastic!
This is one of those series that I’m sad to be caught up on because it means I’ll have to wait (impatiently I might add) for the release of the next instalment.
