Im Pregnant loved the Mongolian scenery but by having this one in Greece I didn t even have the slightest urge to stop and compare it to the first book We didn t get uite the same sense of culture and information about Greece that we did about Mongolia in the first book but that s understandable The characters were on a ship for most of the book and weren t visiting the islands enough to give a well developed sense of the people there We did get a glimpse of them now and then but they did feelike scenery than full robust characters I really Tigress for Two (Alaskan Tigers, liked getting to watch the romance between the secondary characters on the ship We didn t actually dwell on their relationship from their pov we just got to watch it from Bennett and London s pov Iiked that because I never felt that it took away time from London and Bennett s relationship as I sometimes do with secondary romances that have half of the book devoted to them but I did ook forward
To A Glimpse Of a glimpse of relationship progress now and then I oved that they felt necessary to the book even if it wasn t their story I especially enjoyed watching Athena come into her own with her powers It was really nice getting a glimpse of someone who has gifts that they were born with Although I do still wonder about Bennett s affinity with shadowsI really enjoyed watching London move past her initial restrictions Not only was she the daughter of the enemy trying to fit in with a group who hates her family she was raised as the traditional delicate English rose She didn t have adventures and she didn t know how to take care of herself in a fight It was nice that she wasn t magically a Xena ike character right out of the gate I enjoyed watching her become someone stronger and confident in herself I also iked watching the

This book was even better than the first one and I didn t think that would be possible What I ove about these stories is that we don t have silly fighting between our hh Instead we get them forming a strong and Lenora loving team in which to fight against evil These books are kind ofike the Indiana Jones series except with a Caz Sanatı lot romance and sex Again Ms Archer has given us two strong personalities that really work well together I reallyiked Bennett and London as a couple I am Desire Sensibility looking forward to the next one in the series Trigger warnings Super controlling parent torture35 stars Okay here s the thing I reallyike the stories in this series They re set in fun ocations The magic system is super cool The female characters are badasses The male characters areridiculous but they re always respectful of the badassery of their ove interests The villains are a The Faerie Godmothers Apprentice Wore Green little one dimensional but you can t have it all Where this series falls flat for me is the romances and the sex scenes Don t get me wrong I think there s a great dynamic between the characters But the sex scenes are SO CHEESY and uest Four and a half stars rounded up Iiked this installment in the Blades of the Rose series better than the previous Warrior was very good but this one captured my attention earlier and kept it The Sorcerer of the North (Rangers Apprentice longer I really enjoyed the action and the romance it was an excellent mixTheeads are great Bennet is an unrepentant Practicing History ladies man and London is just finding her way in a totally new world Their chemistry was very apparent and they were an engaging couple throughout I did skim through some of the sex scenes sorry but the romance outside of the sack was what was the most compelling My one complaint about the series is the presentation of the villains They re part of a group called The Heirs and they re out for the glory of England Um And They say they work for the government but is their work government sanctioned It s hard to tell And what of the other nationalities that have similar groups that have been referenced Why are the Blades never running into any of them They re all after the same sources right For all the specificity regarding the sources I feelike the villains are eft fairly vague Seems azy especially when compared to the amazing detail of the rest of the narrativeIn any case this installment is really enjoyable I have the bundle so I ve already got the next two on deck and I Some Thing Black ll be getting to them in due time With bundles it s hard not to just turn the page and continue on but I ve managed to stick with Dina s RulesI recommend this series to people whoike adventure romance It s highly entertaining has uniue settings and a bit of paranormal Some have McClellans Other Story likened it to Indiana Jones and I think that fits Enjoy Now that s what I m talking about Scoundrel was the experience I was hoping and expecting to have with Warrior What a relief to know that there s nothing wrong with me after all Now I can completely understand the hype for this series Loved It I may even consider joining the fangirl ranks if the next book hits meike this one didBefore I go any further if there s anyone reading this review who Cant You Make Them Behave, King George?
