    Just as excellent as the 1st two!

    I really enjoyed reading about Rune & Carling. Their story brought tears to my eyes and made my stomach hurt - two high compliments! Their chemistry was smoking hot and I couldn't get through the book fast enough. Highly recommend. Although start with the 1st two books in the series which are also excellent.

    Great continuation!

    This was a great continuation of the Elder Races series. This book a bit more complicated than the previous 2, but just as addictive. Serpents Kiss delves into the NightKind Demesne (Vampyres) whereas book one detailed the Wyr demesne and book two detailed the Dark Fae demesne. Carling was harder for me to relate to on an emotional level, but at the same time I think she was more interesting to me because of it. While most of the book is action packed - I kept laughing every time Rasputin was mentioned. I love the irony. I can't wait for Khalil's story. He was one of the most interesting characters we have met so far. Great job Thea!

    The latest Elder Race romantic urban fantasy is a great tale

    Rune Ainissesthal the Wyr Sentinel and dying vampyre queen Carling Severan the sorceress made a deal. To save the life of his friend Tiago, Rune will do Carling's bidding.

    Thus he flies cross country from New York to San Francisco. He finds out that Carling is losing control of her paranormal skills due to the serpent's kiss disease that destroys ancient vampyres like her. She invested time and resources to finding a cure, but as time runs out so far her endeavor has proven futile. While her supporters flee in fear of her unpredictable power and others prepare to betray her in a power grab, Rune tries to save the female he is falling in love with.

    The latest Elder Race romantic urban fantasy (see Storm Heart and Dragon Bound) is a great tale in which Thea Harrison deftly merges vampyre political and social backstabbing machinations with a cross species romance. Time is of the essence as the Wyr and the Vamp fall in love while her followers either distance themselves from her or plot to speed up her death watch. Serpent's Kiss is an excellent thriller.

    Awesome book! A must read for paranormal romance lovers!

    I have loved all of The Harrison's books so far, and the newest in her Elder Races series doesn't disappoint! I won't give anything away, but I will say that it has some great segways. I also enjoy that the characters from earlier books are either mentioned or make an appearance in the following books, as well as setting up the characters for her next book. I can't wait for Oracle's Moon!

    I really enjoyed Carling and Rune's story

    Rune and Carling were an interesting blend of character traits. Strong and dominate one moment, submissive and vulnerable the next. Very complex charcters and I liked how the story unfolded. It wasn't as predictable as some can be. There was even a moment of otter "I didn't see that coming". Overall great story.

    Serpents Kiss Elder Races 3

    Well, I previously met both characters in #1&2 so was expecting excitement, but alas was disappointed. Way too much drama wordiness and not enough physical action until the end when everyone met at the Oracles home.
    Carling was one hot, illusive babe and Rune was such a hottie. Put them together and they turned into Ken and Barbie. Phooey!!!!!

    fun fantasy romance series

    a perfect fantasy world with shapeshifting dragons, vampires and werewolves. Each book can stand on its own and is not dependent on the common plot that doesn't really start until Book 4 Oracle's Moon.

    The romance is steamy but not graphic, therefore its more PG-13 than R. I think the sex scenes in Black Dagger Brotherhood are more graphic than in these books.

    With so many characters it will be interesting to see whether the series continues to revolve around only Dragos and his sentinels.

    I struggled with Rune and Carling's story. It seem to drag on forever with so much filler. I found myself wanting to skim. Very disappointed :(

    Not good

    Each book in this series is a little worse than the last, though the first one is still worth reading.

    great read

    The Elder Race Series is a fun read. I really loved the first book, and I liked this one too. The only one that was a little slow was book 2. I am not much of a vampire book person, but for some reason I did like this book. Of course a hunky guy helps too. I also like the more detailed introduction to the character of Khalid, who was briefly mentioned in book 2, and will be the main hunky guy in book 4. I felt the growing relationship was well developed here, and felt interested in seeing how things ended up. The time travel could have been described a bit more, but overall I enjoyed this book. Can't wait for book 4, as the preview in the back of this book sounds really good.
