    Amazing!

    I've read all of Heather Killough Walden's books but this series is by far my favorite! Everything about this book is fantastic, from the action, to the romance. Heather has a way of making a book sooo steamy but keeping it totally pg13. She is a truly gifted writer and I can't wait for more!

    Captivating

    This riveting second novel to The Chosen Soul series follows the same unique writing style shown in the first novel by Heather. The different perspective throughout the novel allows the reader to relate and connect to the characters and their different stages of the novel allowing her readers to share with the characters development throughout the novel. This style of writing keeps the readers wanting more. Following the storyline from the first novel in the series enchants the reader again from the first page allowing, the reader to incorporate themselves into the story, enveloping the reader into the world of Raven Gray and Drake of Tanith. Heather¿s realistic and detailed characters enchants the reader keeping them entangled in the story till the very end. The novel is jam-packed with adventure and romance that readers find intriguing. The breathtakingly written novel, Drake of Tainth is far from implausible. Allowing the readers to evade the confines of reality if only for a little while. I for one can not wait till the next installment of The Chosen Soul series.

I couldn't put this book down all i can say is.... I loved it!! and i am sure you will too. I can't wait for the next book in this series. Like everything else Heather Killough Walden has written this book is a must read and a great addition to any book collection.

    Fantastic!

    Heather Killough-Walden does it again! Drake of Tanith is a wonderful sequel to The Chosen Soul. Killough-Walden successfully weaves a dramatic and suspenseful story of numerous "pawns" who continuously get caught up in things much bigger them. This book is very detailed, descriptive, and simply amazing...a must read!!!

    The one I've been waiting on!

    This is the one series of Heather's that I have been waiting on pins and needles for...The Chosen Soul was intriguing and mysterious and I loved how Heather manipulated the conspiracies and dangers to bring Raven and Drake together. I was looking forward to this same style with Drake and she did not disappoint me! I love how this book picked up where The Chosen Soul left off and how the focus was more on Drake's perspective giving the reader the ability to better understand his motivations and actions, thus fall more in love with his character...including his evil side. My only disappointment in this was with Raven Winter. She's a strong character, a strong woman and a powerful demon in her own right, but tends to act like a wuss unless she's ticked off and can be a little to naive for what¿s expected of her character. I'm hoping that we'll see Raven Winter grow up a little in both maturity and emotions, learn to master her powers better, and use what happened in Drake to grow a little more backbone and fight for what she wants and her man instead of hiding all the time! However, I did see growth in her character since The Chosen Soul, so I don't think I will be disappointed at all in the coming installments... except now I have to wait forever for the next book and she's left us hanging at the end¿well played. I hope she doesn¿t wrap this series up to quickly, there's a lot more story here to tell! Thanks Heather!

    As Expected

    I have yet to come across a book of HKW that I do not like. This is a continuing story with strong characters. Like the first book, The Chosen Soul this is a page turner and I am on pins and needles for upcoming book(s).

    Read it!

    I loved this book! I loved how it picked right up after Chosen Soul and continued the pace right through. I loved how it showed the different facets of Drake and his depth of character. I loved how the book drew me in and didn't let me go until there was no more words on the page. I am eagerly awaiting the next in the series. This book stuck in my mind and I tried to think what I would have liked to see different...I had to honestly answer: nothing. I loved it and will be rereading it many many times.

    Really entertaining like the first book of the series!

    I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed CHosen Soul. The characters are all interesting and you really get to know them as the story develops. The world that Killough-Walden created is complex and intriguing. You can never guess what is going to happen next.

    Excellent book!!!

    I loved The Chosen Soul and the author really kept the ball rolling in this book. We are introduced to the God of Magic and I must say he is by far my favorite! Drake turns out to be a lot more complicated and we learn a great deal about his character and his horrible father. The fae are as tricky as ever and I'm not sure how I feel about the Prince, his sister on the other hand is despicable. At any rate, this is a great adventure and I look forward to the next edition to this series!

    Also read the chosen soul. Fantastic reads both. But a little frustrated with the ending and not liking the wait for book 3. Actually, if i had known it was a series, i never would have gotten it. Im so tired of series. I just like to read a good story from start to finish in one book.

    HKW does it again!! =)

    Drake of Tanith picked up where The Chosen Soul leaves off and left this reader immersed in the same delicious chemistry that I recalled from book one. Drake and Raven are strong, beautiful characters that you just root for! The fantasy world that HKW creates is second to none, and honestly, I don't know where she comes up with this stuff!! :) It was a great book....but knowing the quality of Heather Killough-Walden's other work, that was no surprise!

    Wonderful, wonderful

    I was thoroughly enthralled by this book. It is so much more than just a quick romance read. Such deep insight into what is good and what is evil. Can't wait for the next installment for Drake & Raven to satisfy their love for each other and find a way to be together as the soul-mates they were meant to be.
    Please do not keep us waiting to long for the next installment.
    Great writing...
