Overview

In this explosive new world of betrayals #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR and shaky alliances created by New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love, the only free Alterant faces an impossible task—recapture three dangerous escaped creatures before they slaughter more humans . . . or her.

The way Evalle Kincaid sees it, saving mankind from total destruction should have cleared her name. But when words uttered in the heat of combat are twisted against her, she’s blamed for the prison break of three dangerous Alterants. She has one chance to clear the cloud of suspicion hanging over her . . . for good. All she has to do is recapture the escapees. But deals with gods and goddesses are tricky at best, and now the lives of all Beladors, and the safety of innocent humans, rides on Evalle’s success. The only person she can ask for help wants to see her dead.

Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love won me to urban fantasy with last year's release, Blood Trinity. So I beat down the doors of online contests, and managed to get Alterant in advance. And I'm not disappointed. This book, Book two in the Belador series, is full of surprises, and it takes you much, much deeper into several of the characters-but be ready, because you're going to say "OMG" a bunch as you're reading this. I guarantee you're going to be surprised. The thing that makes this my kind of series, is that it doesn't leave you depressed at the end, as many other urban fantasies will. I'm a romance reader at heart, and just to be clear,THIS IS NOT A ROMANCE, but there is more than one love interest, and plenty of sizzle between our kick-butt heroine, Evalle and two different smoking-hot guys, to give me hopeful endings for Evalle. As for Tzader, Quinn, and the others..well..just hold onto the edge of your seat. Feenix is back of course, and I just love that little guy, but in this book, you may decide you love some characters you've hated, and maybe even start to hate some characters you've loved-or not. Ha! You'll have to read it to know, because I'm not giving spoilers. I will say that you won't find a better read this year, if your taste is anything like mine. I like complex plots that make me think, and characters who behave in ways I would behave, if my back was against the wall as theirs is. A world I can fall into and believe, and stakes that make me care. These books are all that and more. And the authors are even giving away a free short story, Fire Bound, that's connected to this one. You can get the free download by going to the publisher's website, Pocket After Dark. Fantastic, plot with twists and turns, deep, interesting characters, and a world you'll love. Grab this series. You won't be sorry.

Alterant was an incredible heart-jolting rollercoaster ride! I’ve heard of Serrilyn Kenyon before but unfortunately, I’ve never had the pleasure of reading any of her books and in the same manner, I’d never heard (nor read) anything by her co-writer Dianna Love. Needless to say, three pages into Alterant, I was sold. From the stunning world the authors created with Gods, Goddesses, and magical creatures, to the massive character line-up, this is a fantasy novel everyone will love. Set in Atlanta, Alterant is the second book in the Blood Trinity series and begins just a few days after the conclusion of Book 1. After saving mankind from destruction, Evalle Kincaid is on her way to meet with the tribunal in an attempt to convince them that she is not a threat, an alterant that can be trusted around humans. Before arriving, she is approached by Storm, a Native American tracker and shapeshifter accomplice from her previous mission. Given their history and the emotional scars from her past, she has in her own way, learned to trust Storm and is surprised when he confronts her with a job of his own. After what seems like a never ending night of surprises, she finally reaches the tribunal and is tasked with a mission to recapture Beladors that were imprisoned and somehow escaped. Deeply conflicted, Evalle does not want to be the one who condemns other Beladors to a life that she fought so hard to escape. Feeling the pressure to succeed and the fate of all Beladors on her shoulders, this proves to be a race against time causing her to use the help of another alternant, Tristan, whom she previously imprisoned. Making it a temporary partnership that could work in (or against) her favor. Although Alterant was a spectacular read, there was one thing that bothered me. At times I was unable to fully connect with Evalle. Because of her past, she is a very cold person who shows sympathy very rarely and only to those she trusts. And since that is mostly no one, the MC could come across as harsh, disconnected, and uncaring. It’s not a huge complaint, but it did annoy me on several pages. I should also point out, for those readers who are expecting a romance novel based on the authors, you should toss that idea out the window and decide to read this novel for what it truly is, a wonderfully enchanting fantasy. Overall, Alterant is a wonderful story that can stand on it is own. However, there are several instances in the book where I was thrown off because I did not read Blood Trinity. So I do recommend – if you have the time – picking up the first novel before diving into this one to avoid confusion. There is a glossary of terms in the back of the book which I always find helpful in fantasy novels such as this one. Sherrilyn Kenyon and Dianna Love did a phenomenal job creating a unique world that will draw readers in and have them begging for the next book in the series. If you are looking to take a break from your normal romance reads and switch gears to an action-packed adventure with an engrossing storyline and characters you will grow to love, then give Alterant a try.

This book was wonderful and as usual it has left me waiting to see and read what will happen next in the series. Totally recommend this book for those who really enjoyed the first book.

I'm already a big fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon's other books so when Blood Trinity came out, I gave it a try. Boy, am I glad I did. The action, dialogue, and general kickass-ness of the heroine makes up a great story. I couldn't put it down. Alterant is just as addictive and I can't wait to see what happens next. My only gripe (and its not really a gripe so much as a groan) is that Alterant ends with even more of a cliffhanger than the first. Really, guys, I'm gonna keep buying and reading the series, I promise. Don't kill me with the cliffhanger! I can't wait to see what happens next.

Wish these 2 authors would get together again. I'm dying to know how Evalle's love life is doing & what other pitfalls & disasters are in her path.

Beladors Book Two Evalle's meeting with the Tribunal does NOT go well. She is accused of freeing three Alterants and tasked with finding them or being locked up herself. Not only will she face the Tribunal's wrath if she fails, Brina will also pay the consequences. After being thrown into the jungle at the mercy of Tristan, Evalle begins searching for the Alterants who could save her. Meanwhile, the Medb sorceress, Kizira, is up to more sinister plans. If you're looking for an urban fantasy series with kick, this is it!

OMG so much better then the first one. Okay the first one was pretty good but this one was so awesome! I can't wait to get the the next one. The only thing I hate about god and goddesses in these types of books is that they have to mess with everything and twist everything up to cause drama and problems. Why can't they leave the people alone and let them love who they want to love? I hope Evalle ends up with Storm even though that will be a battle in and of itself.
