Once upon a time…the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden. To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with a need for vengeance. Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs…and time is running out.
Again this is another new to me author within this series and I would definitely read something by this author again. Actually I’ve been looking at Jessica Anderson’s other works and am quite interested. Lord of the Wolfyn is by far my favourite book in the Royal House of Shadows series so far. I really liked Reda I thought she was a great character who goes from living in the real world and being transported to a different world, with different rules and people without cracking up and thinking she’s insane. Reda has been through a lot in her life and I think it shows how she’s suffered and how it’s affected her. She does grow as a character and change but only after she accepts what’s happened to her and how Dayn changes her and her life. Without Dayn in her life believing in Reda I don’t think she would have accepted certain things and grown as a person, never mind that there’s romantic sparks between Reda and Dayn, Dayn really believes in Reda because if he doesn’t he won’t be able to return home and help save his kingdom and that just isn’t acceptable so Dayn believes in Reda and will keep her safe in return for helping him return home.
Dayn, Dayn, Dayn. I don’t really know what to say about Dayn. I liked him and I didn’t like him. I thought he was an interesting character but had certain problems that I tried to overlook and get my head round for example at the start of the book Dayn is in bed with another woman before Reda drops in his lap so to speak and he goes home and finds Reda instead and starts his journey with her without taking a bath! Marcela from The Bookaholic Cat talks about this better than I ever can. It wasn’t a large problem for me to get through but it was a little strange but once I’d overcome this issue I really enjoyed Reda and Dayn’s journey to return Dayn to his home.
"She thought herself a coward, yet had a core of strength. She had lost someone close to her and blamed herself for it."
"Which brought to mind another of those sayings: throw your heart over first and the rest will follow."
"Because for all that they were taking their moment together here and now, the immediate future pressed heavily an she didn't want either of them to make promises thy might have to break."
Overall, I enjoyed Lord of the Wolfyn and I’m really excited about the fourth and final instalment of the Royal House of Shadows, Lord of the Abyss by Nalini Singh due out 29th November!
