    4.5stars -- A book deserving of Thorne This outing has the lead

    4.5stars -- A book deserving of Thorne

    This outing has the leader of the WotB’s (Thorne) trailing his lady love(Marguerite) around mortal earth as she chases her freedom from the convent. Thorne has abandoned his duties, leaving the men shorthanded; he’s also separated himself from Endelle. Marguerite is determined that she will have more than her share of men and has no intention of exchanging the prison of the convent for the prison of 2nd earth – she will be free at all costs.

    With Thorne & Marguerite’s romance on the front burner, the back-end is overflowing with overall arc information. Plot elements included Greaves and his henchmen furthering his nefarious plot for world domination; Endelle; a twist for an upcoming breh-hedden; a turned traitor; grand spectacles and new powers. This busy storyline comes together well as the fast pace slots everything together well.
    Marguerite was annoying through quite a bit of the book and her romance with Thorne is different than those of the other Warriors & their lady loves.

    As I anxiously await the next installment I really hope it isn’t the last of the series.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    I hate to say this but this was the first book that I have read in this series. I guess you’d think that I was missing out on a lot of the back story but this book goes back and tells you a little about each of the past books.

    I really enjoyed Thorne and Marguerite’s story. Thorne had a lot of responsibility placed on him and he had to choose between his duty and his love so he chose the one that would center him.  Thorne has been Marguerite’s savior for 100 years.   There is no way that I would want to be locked up for 100 years as a convict and have all kinds of things done to me. Thank goodness that Marguerite had Thorne to help her through some of it. If it had been me, I would already be dead.  Fate showed its sense of humor when Thorne finds out that when Marguerite is set free she is his breh.

    I loved the way that the book was written. It really kept me on my toes and wondering if anything would ever go right. I just hated that it took Marguerite so long to give in to Thorne.  I could, however, understand that she wanted to just get away from it all and start all over.  The story line itself was very easy to follow. It had a lot of depth to it.

    I can’t wait to read the next book. We get a little taste of the next one, which I loved. I guess now I’ll go back and read the first four! That should keep me busy.

    Enjoy the ride

    I was initially disappointed with the behavior of Marguerite. While she was over 100 years old she behaved like a spoiled, highly sexed, selfish brat who cared about nothing and nobody but herself. This behavior in the face of her knowledge of how important her power was to the very survival of everyone she claimed to care for or her entire world and all the other dimensions she has full knowledge of being in peril. I hated how she treated Thorne, as he deserves a woman who loves him as much as he loves her and it didn't look like that was going to happen. Finally, thankfully, the author pulled the whiny selfish brat out of that rut and reformed her, giving Thorne the best woman ever. It was a really close call and almost unbelievable as a turnaround personality, but because I REALLY wanted the best for Thorne I decided to go along with her altered outlook on life and her man. If the author had pulled Marguerite's head out her behind quicker than she did I would have enjoyed the story much more. It was far more difficult to go along with her changed behavior after the selfish stunts she pulled, but I decided to give her a larger amount of forgiveness by choosing to look at her past for the horror it truly was. From about the halfway point the story really took off, so anyone out there like me just hold on that far and all will work out, especially the end!
